Dorchester Primary school 08/09/2016

Monday and Tuesday took me to South west London and Dorchester Primary school. This is a large three form entry school and so we enjoyed dancing in numbers of 90 or so. This made for very exciting classes and the children responded very well with both enthusiasm and hard work. I would like to thank both staff and children for a lovely visit and I look forward to returning sometime soon.

 

 

Thanks chaps for helping with my dance workshop. Great for the children to see that Chelsea train such good dancers.

I have visited a lot of staff rooms in my time, but never one with a view like this.

Another 5 A.M. start on my way to the Redcar on the east coast. Lovely journey there driving past misty fields and arrived just as the sun was rising on the coast.

Errington primary school was situated between the ocean and the commondale hills in a very attractive part of the country. A very friendly and welcoming school with staff who got involved in every workshop. Its always good for the children to see their teachers making the odd mistake or two. Every class had a workshop except for nursery, (sorry little guys). And the day ended with a performance from year 5 and 6 for parents and the rest of the school. I think that we all had a great day.

Some words from the staff:

“54 kids and 2 teachers completely engaged, (though the scissor kick was a stretch for the teachers).
They had fun and learned that it is ok to make mistakes. Even children who thought they did not like dance loved it, the keen footballer types had a great time”.

“Every child engaged and some of the less confident children had a smile on their faces throughout. Really enjoyable workshop”.
