The finale of our Chinese New Year activities came on Saturday 17th February at 5.30pm in Ilkeston. A group of Year 6 children (and parents) from Hallam Fields, gave up their time on a Saturday to take part in a lantern procession from Erewash Museum to the Market Square and had the honour of carrying the dragon puppet at the front of the parade.
They then took to the stage for their performance of a traditional Chinese song, as learnt in school with Ling Peng. All the children sang beautifully and were a real credit to Hallam Fields. It is something I hope they will always remember – I certainly will!
