Enrichment - The Arts

Year 2; 'Alice down the rabbit hole'. In conjunction with the Royal Opera house.

Summer 2019.

Year 2 have had an absolutely fantastic summer term creating their own interpretation of Alice's fall down the rabbit hole in dance form. They have explored the many characters that Alice encounters, the way within which she falls and how to grow, shrink, spiral and many other movements to create an amazing interpretive dance. It was a truly wonderful performance which was performed at the YMCA in Hanley. We joined other schools and were joined by ballet dancers from the Royal Opera House in London who watched all performances then treated the children and teachers to a special workshop. It was an incredible day!

Year 4- Create and Dance, in association with The Royal Opera House.

Year 4 have recently partaken in the Royal Opera House’s ‘Create and Dance’ programme.

The creative learning programme was created in collaboration with teachers across the UK, for primary schools across England. At Forsbrook Primary School we were involved in ‘The Nutcracker’ project, where children all across the country are given 10 weeks to complete a creative challenge. The children were tasked with creating a dance of no more than five minutes. It has been a momentous 10-week journey as the children have worked through motif-development, character dancing and performance skills before finally completing their own choreographed piece ‘Robots’ based on their electricity topic, ‘Bright Sparks’. It has given children a better understanding of dance and helped to unlock their imagination and unleash their creativity. The project has enabled the children of Year 4 to become physically active, focused on improving their flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance. The programme also helped pupils to develop rhythm and body percussion.to listen with attention and recall sounds with increasing aural memory. It allowed them to reflect on their performance so far, giving rich and constructive feedback to support others as well as themselves. Furthermore, they participated in discussions during moments of performance and considered each other’s opinions leading them to identify their strengths and areas for improvement. By doing so, Year 4 set themselves high aspirations and goals, modifying their dance routine accordingly.  By working towards a shared vision, they were able to discuss their thoughts respectfully. This has been incredibly amazing to witness and we are unbelievably proud of the children on their overall performance.
