Shaping Space brings together strands from the National Curriculum dance and science units and is aimed specifically at Year 5 and 6 students.
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.
