Year 2 Dance Project

Year 2 have used dance workshops run by Nocturn Dance Company to support this terms topic work on night time, shadows and nocturnal animals.


The children have been working with company director John Darvell to explore the characteristics of nocturnal animals and how they might move, as well as examining at their own shadows and even giving their shadow a cheeky personality, to help develop dance material with a partner. 


Year 2 teacher Mrs Barber explained ”this fun opportunity funded through the Sports Premium, has given a cross curricular activity and has proved very popular with the children, parents and staff alike. The six, weekly sessions have culminated in a final performance giving the children the opportunity to share the work they have all played a part in producing with the rest of the school and their parents.”
