In February a group of children from the Infant School took part in the Sports’ Partnership dance show, showcasing a dance to the song ‘Get back up again’ from the film Trolls. Our song choice was inspired by what we have been learning about resilience and never giving up in our PATHS lessons.
The children practised the dance over the course of a few weeks at lunchtimes and in the afternoons with Mrs Ponder and Miss McTavish. It was fantastic to see the children working as a team to practise and just as our song had been inspired by never giving up, the children always bounced back after any difficulties when practising.
When the day came of the show the children made us all so proud as they were so excellently behaved! It was a long day at OPEN Norwich and they children had a chance to practise on the stage with the lights before their two performances, one in the afternoon and one in the evening.
We are so proud of the all children that took part and hope they enjoyed the new and exciting experience. The performances were both amazing and the children remembered all their moves brilliantly. It has even inspired some of the children to go to dance lessons outside of school, as none of the children had any dance training before the event.
