D-Day Dances

D-Day Dances


Over the past few afternoons, the children have been learning all about D-Day. After watching the video above, the children began thinking about how they could portray this battle…’through the medium of dance!’


After getting into groups and getting to grips with the song choice, the children then began working reciprocally in order to choreograph a routine based around D-Day. The children did a stunning job and I could not be more proud! They thought carefully about the tempo and the count of 4 in order to create actions that would fitย  the music.


Well done, Year 6!
