Brooke Weston Sixth Formers led a series of creative workshops with Year 3 students, followed by a dance performance at Kettering Science Academy Primary School. The Year 12 students helped the younger ones make Chinese calendars and paper lanterns. The 30-minute show, which was inspired by some of the legends about Chinese New Year and the animals of the zodiac, will be part of their Performing Arts BTEC qualifiction.
KSA class teacher Naomi Entiriwaa said: ‘It was really interactive, practical and hands-on and the Year 3s really enjoyed making Chinese-themed objects and they loved the dancing.
Dance teacher Camilla Kerr said: ‘Our Year 12s have been working on their choreography for the past eight weeks and it is the first time they have performed at a school. It has been a great experience especially as the primary students clearly enjoyed it and had a chance to join in at the end of the show.’
