KS1 had a great time taking part in dance workshops run by Springs dance company. In preparation each class read "You Are Special" and got to know the story of Punchinello and the Wemmicks. During the sessions the children were able to interpret the story, through dance moves, both alone and in pairs. It was lots of fun and everyone enjoyed it.
Today, McGough Class had a dance workshop with Springs Dance Company. We performed a dance which was themed around 'The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.' We used the story to make links between Jesus sacrificing himself for us as Aslan did in the story.

Sewing is one of the oldest of the textile arts, arising from the Palaeolithic era. Before the invention of spinning yarn or weaving fabric, archaeologists believe Stone Age people across Europe and Asia sewed fur and skin clothing using bone, antler or ivory needles and thread made of various animal body parts.As part of our Topic, we sewed Stone Age bags. We designed our bags, practised various stitches and made our bags. Look at what we produced.
