VIDEO: Pre-Prep Go on a Bear Hunt!

This year, Early Years have been introduced to dance as part of the curriculum thanks to Miss Pimblott from The Aim Sky High dance company.  For the last six weeks, she has been working with the children in Pre-Prep on a performance based on the story, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen.

Miss Pimblott was so impressed with the children’s listening skills and how quickly they took on board her direction.  She took them through the different stages of the story which had been adapted to incorporate dance moves.

The challenge was to then perform the dance without music or prompts, and so the children had to remember the sequence of the story and Miss Pimblott’s direction.

The dance lessons benefit children by improving their physical development, creativity and literacy skills.

We look forward to seeing what Miss Pimblott has in store for the children after the half term holidays.

Watch our performance below.
