Dance Through the Ages

This term our integrated learning is about Dance Through the Ages. This is closely linked with the school production later in the year where 2 classes will be performing a dance from a certain era. We are buddied up with Rm 22 (our buddy class) and together we are going to learn a dance to 2 songs for our era - the 2000's.

Click on the songs below to go to the youtube clips and have a listen. Once we start learning the dance you will be able to practice at home too!

The Cha Cha Slide

Bye Bye Bye

Yesterday we started off our unit by discussing and brainstorming what we know about dance and what we want to find out over the term. It was great to see the amount of students who have learned a style of dance before and we will definitely be calling on their expertise as we work our way through choreographing our performance!

Brainstorming about Dance


Athletics day is coming up next Wednesday and we are busy practicing our skills for the different events...

On Monday we practiced our sprints and learned how to start the races properly.
On Tuesday we practiced our shot put skills and learned the correct way to push the shot through the air.

The other events we will be practicing for are: high jump, long jump, discus, long distance and relays.

Here we are with Rm 4 and 5 mastering our shot put skills:
