DROITWICH’S Westacre Middle School has embraced the Chinese New Year, and taken part in their annual Dabble Day organising a range of activities for pupils, writes Sophie Wheeler.
The school celebrated the new year last Friday, giving children the opportunity to take part in 20 creative activities on offer.
Activities included learning to cook sweet and sour chicken, martial arts, calligraphy, composing Chinese music, tasting different teas and making monkey drums.
Gemma Morgan, Head of Art and DT at Westacre said: “It has been a brilliant day, all the staff worked very hard to offer the children a day of learning new skills.
“An additional thank you goes to the local community for supporting our day – Morrisons, Travis Perkins and Defence Lab.”
The annual Dabble Day saw pupils get to choose what activities they wanted to learn more about with each one arranged by a different member of staff.
Deputy headteacher Paul Barber said it was a fantastic day, showcasing what Westacre’s curriculum was all about.
“It inspired our pupils to show off their creativity across all the school subjects.
“Well done to all of our children for what they achieved and created, and thank you to Mrs Morgan for organising such a special day.”
