We start this term by welcoming Mrs Dawkins who will be teaching the Oaks on Mondays and Tuesdays. She is an experienced teacher who specialises in PE. I am delighted to say that Mrs Dawkins will be joining us on the residential trip to Redridge so we shall all get to know each other very quickly!
We hope that 2019/20 will be another exciting and action-packed year for Oak Class. There are some great topics planned with a number of associated trips and visitors in the pipeline.
This morning 29.9.19 we welcomed the 3 head of schools and Ms Prokipczuk to our class for a Learning Walk through maths. we showed them how we can work practically and physically by doing our mental starter and re-teach in the hall. We played runaround and ALWAYS, SOMETIMES, NEVER TRUE.
Can you spot the measure words..?
The Start of our SPY DANCE
Our first lesson starting to brainstorm the SPY genre and putting our ideas into a short movement phrase. We warmed up exploring the 4 key dance shapes:- pin, wall, ball & twist, then devising actions/shapes to the count of 8 beats. We started still in Jamie's shape, travelled to the physical or mental zone in the hall, performed our action, then travelled to the other zone, whilst tying to listen to the changes in the tempo and beat of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE theme tune..! Our injured class mates took turns videoing our developments and writing notes in their books to help us remember the order. Well done the Mighty Oaks, a great start..! Lots to develop; I am so looking forward to seeing how we can improve this intro, changing dynamics and adding in more stimulus.
