Chinese New Year, February 2019
Thank you to the PTFA for funding our Chinese New Year workshops.
Chinese new year celebrations began on the 5th February 2019 and last for 15 days. 2019 is the Year of the Earth Pig.
Dragon dances are performed at New Year to scare away evil spirits. The dragon symbolises good luck, long life and wisdom.
We had a visit from a professional dancer who brought a traditional Chinese dragon, parasols and fans for the whole class to create an exciting dance performance. These performances were showcased at the end of the school day for everyone to enjoy.
Reception class made their own Chinese dragon and danced with it in assembly. See their wonderful display in the hall..

Health & Well-Being Event
What a huge success! From staff & parent Zumba to kids Smoothie Workshops, we had it all. My thanks to those parents who made it, I hope you enjoyed yourselves? Feedback from the event has been very positive especially for Emma Heathcote, Dietitian, who delivered an excellent presentation on Nutrition and bought you all up to date with the latest myths about food.
Our school partners, Hoar Cross Hall, were also there to present the raffle prizes and launch the fabulous corporate membership available to everyone within the RCFS community. I also have to thank Waitrose for their very generous donation of fruit & veg for the “5 a day” pupil workshops, we had lots of fun exploring and tasting a variety of concoctions, some quite tasty!!!!! others, well what can I say your children did test their taste buds if nothing else.
I hope to do more health & well-being events soon so watch this space.
