African Mask and Dance DayLast Tuesday the whole school took part in a day of Art and Dance linked to Africa. The children began the day finding out facts about what it means to live in a tribe. They were then given a blank mask made from the wood of the miracle tree and introduced to particular colours, each of which had a meaning.

Every year group showcased their individual dance routine using their masks set to a range of African music
