Dance is included within the P.E. curriculum for Years 3, 4 and 5. The aim is to introduce pupils to a different form of exercise and fitness regime with a knowledge of anatomy playing a part in all classes.
The syllabus is based around various styles of modern dance and is closely linked to both the Music and English departments culminating in performances for Year 4 pupils at the end of their Christmas term and Year 5 pupils during the summer term.
There is also the opportunity for pupils throughout the School to take part in dance classes for the School’s Comenius project and other productions.
Ballet is also offered from Reception level as an extra-curricular activity with classes held on a weekly basis either at lunch time or after school.
