The past few weeks the Year 6 pupils have given up their playtimes and dinner times to create and practise the dance which has been much appreciated.
In the choreography, we have explored a number of themes and ideas including:
Sky- theme- aspiration, awakening, and some form of connection
Cleansing- theme -water, breathing and rippling
Journey-theme -travelling, resistance, endurance.
Birds- theme -Undulating Rising and flight
Rising- theme-recognition identity and hope
Wednesday morning the children had to attend the theatre for a technical run through. They realised what performing was all about. How the lightning effecting their performance and the use of the space on the stage,
All were very excited about the evening performance. Dressed if their costumes and all ready to go, the children really felt the excitement of performing in front on audience.
Their performance on the evening was exceptional. They performed and enjoyed every minute of the time they were on the stage and definitely raised the bar.
Well done girls and boys you have worked hard and we were very proud of you and our school.
Thanks to Mrs Brooks for helping us out and also thanks to the parents for supporting your child and St. Joseph’s School.
Welsh Novice Gymnastics Final, Welsh Institute of Sport, November 2015
A team of Year 6 girls: Beni, Poppy, Laura, Niamh and Sania. and a Team Year3 / 4 girls and boys Lily, Mikayla, David, Sonny, Sofia and Agnes
These children represented the school in the Welsh Novice Gymnastics Championships held at the Welsh Institute of Sport. (W.I.S). The children were competing against many schools from across Wales. The children had to perform on four pieces- two runs of 6 moves on the floor and two jumps from the rheuther board..
Beni and Niamh thought it was very educational and enjoyable because they felt that they could express ourselves and perform a good sequence while being judged by experienced judges. . The judges evaluated how we performed the sequences and the jumps and gave us a score out of 10.00. Most of all it was FUN!!!!!!!!!!
Although this was a team competition and were placed fourth just missing out on a medal the children's scores were graded
Laura - Bronze
Sonny and David - Silver
Lily. Niamh, Beni, Poppy Sania, Sofia, Agnes Mikalya - Gold
An excellent performance
Look on the website for more pictures and videos showing how all the children performed.
