Thank you to all the children that participated in the Dance Collaboration with Allerton High School. This was a fantastic collaboration, it allowed all children to make new friends, be creative and learn new movements through dance.
What a fantastic two weeks working with 6SK. Our Learning was to explore how the roots of a tree can connect and communicate with each other!
The children learnt that a Fungi– provides the Trees with nutrients, The MotherTree– Is the older tree that will nurture the younger trees and The Black Walnut tree spreads toxic chemicals through the roots to sabotage other trees.
The Mother Tree
A massive thank you to 6K You all showed teamwork, patients, determination throughout. I am so proud of you all well done!
Dance Workshop with parents
Thank you to parents- grandparents for taking part in there child’s learning! Fantastic collaboration.
All children used a visual image of a tree as their ‘stimulus’ to create a short sequence of movement as a starting point!
The Branch Tree
The Connecting Tree
The Tunnel Tree
The children Used Improvisation as a creativity tool to creative freedom of movement. Improvisation opens up the mind to spontaneous movement, allowing the body to be free.
Poem words that inspired the Dance piece:
Towering trees & November breeze.
Splattering of golden leaves, Cloud drifts across the sky.
The low sun warms & Hungry birds circle and watch their prey.
Leaves whispered leaving autumn behind goodbye.
Towing Tree, Away qliver in brisk, Bare trees, Entwined like a knot and Wispy clouds.
In the distance, Majestic trees sway, Bitter cold, Breeze, Poor trees not clothed, No leaves, No Blossom, No Fruit and Will you survive?
Skeletal trees tangled, knotting, towering trees, winter breeze, tall dead trees and winter winds.
Rotten leaves, damp grass, Rocking side to side, icy breeze, trees die and evil clouds.
The Towering Trees
The Tunnel Tree
The Connected Trees
The Knot Trees
