Mascot dance

We have been making up a dance for the Olympic opening ceremony in dance today. We started by watching Wenlock and Mandeville, then we added our own ideas. We included moves from some of the Olympic sports and the Olympic rings. We had great fun. Our dances were performed to reach for the stars. Why not have a go at making up your own dance at home.

Mr Brown’s Maths group have been drawing carefully around their bodies to measure their ‘wingspan’ and heights. Michael Phelps has an unusually long wingspan, which people think helps make him swim faster!

The Olympics in the Island

When I went home I made a comic about Wenlock & Mandevil when they get stranded on a island.(strange enough Whenlock ate a doughnut & Mandevil had ice cream on the life boat.)(I find that coo – coo for maskots.) last week we were learning about Superheroes. We had great fun.
