Juniors join hands for traditional jig

Pupils from three Maidenhead schools came together to enjoy a traditional English dancing session.

It was hosted by Furze Platt Junior School in Oaken Grove, where children were joined by others from nearby Courthouse Junior School and Manor Green School.

 

 

The mixed session lasted for about an hour last week and was led by caller Val McFarlane.

The pupils danced to a live band, made up of current and ex-Berkshire teachers.

They included organiser Chris Smith, his wife Patsy, an assistant headteacher at Furze Platt, and Stephen and Judith Joy, who between them played two violins, a keyboard and a double bass.

Mrs Smith said the children 'very much enjoyed' the dancing, adding: "It was really good."
