I was so incredibly proud of our wonderful children as they performed to two full houses today!
The children have spent a term learning about Te Waiponaumu - in our case a big focus was on Early Settlers and the way the and looked back in those days. They have also spent a lot of time learning about singing, dancing and acting.
Our Show Case put all of this learning together.
The children created a dance based upon their knowledge and understanding of using space, different levels, timing and being aware of each other on the stage. They shared their ideas and made agreed decisions on the final ideas to be included in the dance - a true exercise in learning about compromise, cooperation, pride and coping with disappointment!
They have practised their item many times and each time it has got better and better. This week we have only danced in front of audiences!
A huge well done to the children for outstanding performances and for making so many people so proud of you.
Thanks so much to all of our families for supporting us so much. I hope you smiled a lot tonight :)
