Ballet!!! Science!!! It really helped to push the learning points through... this should be a must for every school.

Shaping Space, Year 6 Class teacher

Comprising of three 2-hour workshops led by a dance artist and musician over three consecutive weeks, the sessions will use The Earth and Beyond unit from the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum as a stimulus.

Each session includes a warm up class and creative tasks exploring the Sun, Moon, Earth and Solar system, developing dance skills through the study of this part of the curriculum.

I can concentrate for longer and show people what I have achieved.
