As we have had a lot of dealings with the Confucius institute recently Chinese club were invited to UCLAN’s Sports Arena in Preston on Thursday 25th September for a day of immersion in Chinese culture. Nine children were accompanied by Mrs DeSilva ( the school’s global learning leader) for a day which included kite flying, martial arts, Tai Chi, lion dance demonstrations and a Jianzi competiton. Jianzi is a sport popular in China which involves a keepy up style game with a Chinese shuttlecock. Sam Grimes did particularly well winning a prize for the most keepy ups and Rachel Webster won a prize for best kite flyer!!
