This half term 1SP explored dance and movement with Miss Beaumont. We learnt about the Haka including looking at its history and why it's performed as well as learning our own Haka dance. We then went off into groups to develop this dance further by adding more moves on! Check out our videos below but be warned, we're pretty scary!
We also learnt a Rocky dance where we had to pretend to be boxers! Miss Beaumont was really impressed with how quickly we learnt the dance!
To finish off our dance unit, we learnt a dance from a stage production of the Lion King! Miss Beaumont taught us the beginning of the dance and then we developed our own moves to add onto the dance. Throughout the unit we have worked together, communicating ideas and supporting our classmates. We were also "mini teachers" in which we peer assessed groups performances by sharing what we liked about their dances and how they could make it even better!
