Andy came in to visit us at school. First we did a warm up and then learnt different types of dancing. We learnt Salsa, Capoeira (a non contact Brazilian marshal art dance) and Indian dance moves. It was tiring but fun. It’s a good way to keep fit and healthy and all the classes took part.
Today we showed the rest of the school what our groups had been working on. We saw different groups doing dancing, drama, music and art based around different art work.
On Thursday 19 March Deshar pupils visited Abernethy for day two of of our Expressive Arts development. Groups met up with a tutor from day one to prepare their work for sharing with all the other groups. Their art, drama, dance or music piece was based on a picture of somewhere in Scotland. There was a variety of great work for everyone to enjoy: from a ceilidh in a village hall, to story telling in Eilan Donan Castle,music describing the river’s journey from source to the sea and artwork about the sea. This two day event was part of the school’s work on developing the teaching of the Expressive Arts.
*NEWSFLASH* Teachers take part dressing up for World Book Day.
Today everyone came in dressed up as a character from a favourite children’s book. Even the teachers joined in. Costumes included Mrs Denner as the Wicked Witch of the East and Miss McCaughey who was dressed Gangster Granny and lots more. The P4/5 class read books to the Nursery children in their adorable costumes and the P6/7 class shared their reading books with the P1, 2, 3 class. Have a look below at some of our costumes and see if you can guess which book they’re from!
