DIWALI BOLLYWOOD DANCING WORKSHOP AND PERFORMANCE
On Thursday, Year 4 took part in a Diwali Bollywood dance workshop. In the morning, both classes learnt a routine which we then put together and then performed to our parents at the end of the day. In the afternoon, we also learnt four different dance moves which we then choreographed into our own dances in small groups. This was really hard! We finished our choreographed routines on Friday morning and filmed them. We even added in some of our own dance moves to them! Finally, we also performed our Bollywood dance to the whole school. We think everyone really enjoyed it!

SOCK BUNNIES IN DESIGN TECHNOLOGY
We designed and made our own sock bunnies in Design Technology. To do this we had to learn how to sew using a needle and thread as well as some basic stitches. We enjoyed the challenge of making our sock bunnies and all felt very proud of them at the end! Finally, we made them some homes and different scenes to play in out of junk modelling.
Freeze Frames in english
We have been exploring our class book, ‘The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane’ by Kate DiCamillo, using ‘freeze frames’ and ‘thought taps’ to help us plot the story. We had to think about what the characters were doing and how they were feeling. We used our bodies to try and show what each character was doing for different scenes in the chapter. Next, we said how they were feeling, or what they were thinking, for our ‘thought taps’. Then we ordered our freeze frames to tell the story. We were very good at acting as the characters!
