Year 1's new Creative Curriculum theme of "Carnivals Around the World" has been launched with an interactive workshop led by Miss Isles from our Year 5 teaching team. Miss Isles is an expert in the creative aspects of this theme and explained what a carnival is, touching upon the history of carnivals in countries and cities that host such events.
Children were able to dress in some of the lovely costumes and head pieces that Miss Isles kindly bought in.
The lesson objective was: To understand the cultural activities in a range of locations and to be able to perform dances using single movement patterns. For this, the children watched a variety of dances and danced to ballet, ballroom, tap and street dancing themes with the main focus being Salsa.
