Year 4 Perform Ballet
This term in Year 4 children have enjoyed learning ballet; promoting agility, boosting concentration and developing an understanding of music and rhythm. They have learnt the five positions of the feet and arms, various exercises, steps taken around the room, and steps of elevation which develop the strength of their major leg muscles by jumping. Focus is on the music section, being able to count movements to music and clapping and counting various time signatures. Children are taught to understand the meaning of the French vocabulary used for the steps.
Ballet has proven to be popular with all pupils and it was really great to see them progress to such an excellent standard.
