The year 7s completed their Thematic Learning unit on Chinese New Year culminating in a wonderful celebration last week. They were treated to a tasting menu of Chinese food; made their own hóngbāo (celebratory red envelopes) and had a go at Chinese calligraphy with two visiting artists.

This was a lovely end to a rather special week -on Wednesday the students had performed and filmed their Chinese shadow puppet shows. Collaborating in small groups they wrote, directed and made everything to ensure that their plays were as authentic as possible. A year 7 triumph with some beautiful puppetry, sets and storytelling.

A huge thank you to the dedicated year 7 Thematic Learning Team who seem to make the magic happen week after week.
