Sword Dancing

Class 3 have started to learn the 'Gainford Long-sword Dance' with the help of members of our local community. This will be the first time that children have learnt this dance in Gainford since the 1880's when Queen Victoria was on the throne. This means the children are making history! When the children have learnt the dance they will be wearing authentic costumes and performing the dance at the Gainford Big Weekend.
