Whole school assembly – Chinese New Year

To introduce our Chinese New Year Art Day, we were fortunate to have an assembly led by musician and storyteller, Ling Peng.  She captivated her audience with a dramatic re-telling of the Chinese New Year story – The Legend of Monster Nian. We learnt how many of the customs and activities of the oldest traditional festival in China originated.  We were also treated to a recital on the erhu, a traditional Chinese instrument, and Year 6 were invited to join in and sing the Chinese song they had been learning with Ling.
