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.

Music, Story and Symbol in Grade 1

Grade 1 showed their first sparks of creativity by creating their own short stories in response to a piece of music. They developed characters, setting and conflict using one given prop in a symbolic way. Each story was unique and creative and the children did a fantastic job of portraying the four qualities of an actor-mind, body, voice and heart. A great job- well done Grade 1!
