Year 3, Superhero P.E, 29.9.10
In Year 3, we have been learning dance. We have been learning our dance moves based on our topic Heroes and Villains. We have learned about gesturing, travelling, turning, jumping and stillness. Can you see any of these things in the photos below? Next week we are going to be wearing our superhero costumes and learning a new section to our routine.
In Ebony class we have been developing our dances in our small groups. We thought about how different animals moved and tried to create a dance using these animal movements.
Some of us got a little further and split our dances up into several different scenes.
What do you think?
Today the children welcomed Ellie Riley, from Footlights Dance Academy, into school, who put them through their paces for the opening act of iCan too.
The children worked extremely hard and showed a great growth mindset in learning a whole dance routine from scratch. The children will now be working hard to perfect the routine for the big event on Friday 13th July at the Princess Theatre.
Mini Michael Jackson!
One of our ‘Special Week’ children wanted to do a show for the other children this week. So we had a visit from a ‘retired’ dancer, who taught him how to do the ‘moonwalk’! He then taught the rest of us! Look at us go!
Why don’t you have another practise? Can you do any other dances?
Our iCan preparations continue as we have begun working on our handjiving!
Remember to be practicing singing at home!
Year 6 have begun preparations for iCan, with a tea dance lesson with Mr Tribble.
The Year 3 children are working hard on their ican performance based on the film ‘The Lion King’. We have been learning a few songs and a dance! But …we are sworn to secrecy so that you can enjoy the amazing experience on the night!
If you haven’t got your tickets yet, get in quick before it’s too late! Not to be missed!
Today we were treated to a ‘Mermaid Dance Show’ choreographed and created by some of our special week children and friends. Using the beautiful backdrop of the view down to the sea and The Ness, the children impressed us with singing and dancing using pom- pom props. They even decided the stage area needed to be swathed in blue material to add to the underwater illusion. They wowed the audience and received a large round of applause.
