We had some special guests from ‘Friends of Parkwood Springs’ yesterday. Y4 were chosen once again to help create lanterns to use in the Beacons Lantern Parade this Saturday. We began by bending willow into the shape of a dragon’s spine, then got very messy covering it with gluey tissue paper and decorations. I can’t wait to see the finished product, it’s going to be huge! We also helped to cover two badgers, which will be displayed on the route around the procession.
It would be fantastic to see as many families as possible on Saturday. We are gathering at 5.30 and the procession will begin at 5.45, led by Sheffield Samba Band. Look out for me and other Watercliffe folk as we’ll try to get a group together to represent the school (and share carrying those enormous lanterns!)
