Chinese Day at Melsonby - Comments from NSC children

My favourite activity was Chinese culture. We scribed Chinese symbols. We did them with black paint and a wedge – shape paint brush.

Tai chi was the best thing because it made you look stronger.

One of my favourite activities at Melsonby was Chinese ribbon dancing because we got to perform our dances. I also enjoyed Tai Chi and Kung Fu because Tai Chi was very gentle and slow and Kung Fu was very sharp and fierce.

On Monday 11th February 2019 the whole school went to Melsonby for a Chinese Day. We learned a small amount of Tai Chi and Kung Fu (it was really fun;!). We also worked towards a ribbon dance performance. Next we did a fair amount of writing in Chinese after that we made Chinese lanterns.

My favourite activity that we did on Chinese day at Melsonby school on Monday 11th February 2019 was ribbon dancing and Tai Chi. Tai Chi was making shapes of the Chinese animals, through dance and I enjoyed that. Ribbon dancing meant swirling the ribbon and moving our bodies at the
same time, which made me full of delight, and I loved performing it with my friends.

On the 11th of February 2019, the whole of North and South Cowton Primary School travelled to Melsonby School to have a joint Chinese Day with them. There was Chinese ribbon dancing, Chinese Tai Chi and Kung Fu, Chinese symbol, even Chinese lunch. But my favourite was the Chinese Lanterns; we were able to decorate them with glitter and a paper handle and also used perforated paper as fake flame which really stood out.

On Chinese day I had learnt a lot and I extremely enjoyed myself. We did: Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Chinese writing, Chinese ribbon dancing and some crafts. My personal favourite was the Chinese ribbon dancing because it made me feel relaxed. This took place outside.

My favourite activity on Chinese day at Melsonby School was definitely ribbon dancing as it was relaxing and the fluid movements blended the colours together into one.
