Church of England Junior School

Year 5, Dance Day

Year 5 learnt three Tudor and Stuart dances linked to our history learning. We performed to both parents and the rest of Year 5 at the end of the day. 

Many parents came from each year 5 class to see and enjoy the three dances that their children had learnt in a day's PE teaching.  We all also learnt more about courtly dances as well as those of the ordinary folk and preferred these instead of the preening / showing off style dances!  We also learnt that the Stuarts danced in lighter weight clothing and moved more freely with hops and bounces compared to the Tudors.  A wonderful way to finish a wonderful term's learning about our local history and what life could have been like when the Royal Family came to visit the once great Basing House.
