Year 3 Chinese Dragon Dance
Recently in Chinese, Year 3 students have been learning about the traditional ways in which the Chinese herald the new year. To enhance the student’s ability to connect with and understand the topic, we invited a professional dragon dancer to visit our school. The dragon dancer shared many of the reasons for which Chinese people do the dragon dance during the celebration of the spring festival. He also taught us a highly engaging story regarding Chinese zodiac signs. We enjoyed performing the dragon dance as a team. Afterwards, we explored the lion dance and the fan dance, and students worked collaboratively to perform the whole choreography in time with festive Chinese music at the end.
