ROCK AND ROLL TEA PARTIES

 

The swinging sixties returned to schools in Great Yarmouth this summer with a series of Rock and Roll tea parties. Teachers and children learned to Twist and Jive to entertain parents, friends and neighbours. Staff from Norfolk Museums were also on hand to showcase artefacts to help children learn about this exciting time and to prompt older people to share their memories of dancing the night away. Children also took part in a ‘flashmob’ dance in the Marketplace which was much appreciated by local shoppers. The schools who took part were; Caister Infant, Caister Junior, Edward Worlledge Ormiston Academy, Freethorpe Commumity Primary, Great Yarmouth Primary Academy, Hemsby Primary, Hopton Primary, North Denes Primary, Northgate Primary, Ormiston Herman Academy, Rollesby Primary. St Georges Primary. The project was supported by the Norfolk and Norwich Festival Bridge.
