Key Stage 1

Class R's 'Train Ride' dance.

As well as creating an incredible ‘Toys’ dance performance with Mrs Butler and Mrs Irvine, Class R have been working hard in pairs, teams and as a whole class to develop a dance to tell the story of the ‘Train Ride’ with Miss Cotterill, Mrs Butler and Miss Moss from Brixham College.
Each pair had their own part of the story to choreograph, which they then taught to another pair with time to edit and improve their actions. The children then decided on chorus actions for the repeating refrains in the story. Each week we changed the dance a little bit to make it a better performance. We even added instruments! Can you spot the children being farmers on tractors? Or the hot air balloons? How about the sheep, cows and horses? Perhaps a smiley ticket collector?
