Oldfield Pupils Learn To Dance Bollywood Style!

Yesterday the children were treated to a Punjabi drumming lesson which everyone enjoyed, even though  it was extremely noisy! The workshop was run by the Punjabi Roots Academy.

Today the children have started a series of four  Bollywood Dance lessons , every Friday in school for four weeks. These lessons are being taught by a company called Kala Sangam. This is a real opportunity for the children to experience a dance style from a different culture. The children certainly look to be having fun. I am looking forward to there final performance in four weeks time.SAM_1069 SAM_1070

ART ATTACK Afternoon

Yesterday we had a fantastic Art Attack afternoon. Thank you to the PTA for arranging it. The children had great fun. Comments from the children included:

‘It was really good, I liked making the skirt from Gangster Granny.’

‘It was awesome!’

‘It was cool. I loved making the vibration thing, it made me talk like punch and

Judy.’

‘Please can we do it again?’

Sculpting with Craig Dyson

Unit 3 (the half that weren’t being scurvy seadogs, that is!) had a great time on Friday having a sculpting day with Craig Dyson. The class project was a giant mouse, and the children also had opportunities to sculpt out of soap (best hide all the soap in your house now!), emboss animals into aluminium, and create clay animals.

Here are some of the photos from the day!
