Tigers and Giraffes working with Becki Mason from South Dartmoor Community College (Autumn 2013)

Tiger class (year 5) and Giraffe class (year 4) have had 4 sessions working alongside Becki Mason from South Dartmoor Community College, learning the fundamentals of dance.  They covered basic dance moves, sequencing movements and also looked at how to apply these skills to Literacy and other subject areas.  They ended by creating dances linked to our topic of ‘Roald Dahl’.

“I liked meeting a new teacher, we had to do a little performance which made me nervous, but it was fun.  I learned not to look at the audience when I was performing then I wasn’t scared, it was like practising” Amber (Tigers)

“It was really exciting.  We were using Charlie and the Chocolate factory, making the characters come to life.  I’ll be better at dance next time we do it because I know it doesn’t have to be a normal dance, it can just be a sequence of moves.” Jack (Giraffes)

“I loved it when she made us do the freeze frames and we could be whichever character we liked.” Genevieve”

“She has so much energy and I really like how she has used a book to create dances to – it is very clever.” Cora”

“I love how we did the floor rolls and the tie dance! It was really good fun.” Vinny”
