During this term students have been working on their “Curiosity’ in dance.
Each class began the term by creating a list of wonderings. In year 3/4 the students were interested in Hip Hop dancing and curious about how they can use their bodies to express emotions. We learnt some basic Hip Hop dance moves and choreographic language such as ‘canon’ and ‘locomotor movement’ and used these to create a dance to Bars and Melody’s song ‘Hopeful’. We discussed the meaning of the song and how the issue of ‘bullying’ can affect people. At the end of each lesson we videoed our routine so we could track our progress and use a variety of self-reflection and feedback tools.
