Event - Winterval Parade and Concert
31 January 2009
On Saturday 31st January children from Class 3 participated in the Valefest's first ever Parade and concert, which was part of the week-long music festival, Winterval.
They created a giant 'dancing' puppet and paraded through the streets of Melton with four other schools and The Oriole New Orleans Brass Band. The children who attended took part fully – dancing with their masks and shakers to the rhythm of the band.
The puppet making project was a lot of fun, providing the opportunity to do something completely different and to get involved in a community activity with other schools across the Vale of Belvoir, Melton and Grantham. We made a wonderful bird puppet as part of our St Lucia project and we were voted the best puppet by all the other schools.
