Yesterday, Grade 3 surprised the lunch hall with a flashmob dance to the tune of ‘Uptown Funk’. The students have collaborated as part of their unit of enquiry on ‘How We Express Ourselves’ with a focus on ‘our appreciation of aesthetic’. Students discussed the boundaries between audience and performer and used the idea of ‘pop-up performance’ to plan the event. They carefully considered how best to engage their audience by taking into account the location, time, content and context of the event. Their next step is to reflect on this learning journey by identifying how they engaged their audience and suggest improvements. Overall, the students have enjoyed this unit and I am sure they will have another chance to perform their fabulous dance! Please click here to view the performance!
Class 2M had a very special visitor this morning! We were extremely lucky to have Kiran join us and teach us about Indian Classical Dance! The class are currently working on creating their own Bollywood dances and this was a unique opportunity for them to receive feedback and advice on how to improve and also add in extra classically-inspired moves. Kiran shared her classical and Bollywood costumes with us and even let us try them on – watch us twirl! A lovely morning and a big thank you to Kiran for joining us.
