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 Mother Tree– 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.
A massive thank you to 6K You all showed teamwork, patients, determination throughout. I am so proud of you all well done!

The story “Ice Palace” by Rober Swindells has once again inspired our learning in dance. The story is about a man called Starjik and his hunger wolves, who takes children throughout the night.
Ivan discovers his brother is missing and decides to follow and find his little brother, Ivan is faced with dangers to Starjik cavern.
The children are exploring Ivan’s Emotions when his brother was taken!
3LT Dance Working Process
All children used a visual image of a tree as their ‘stimulus’ to create a short sequence of movement as a starting point!
- knot Tree
- 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.
- sleeping branches.
- Rotten leaves, damp grass, Rocking side to side, icy breeze, trees die and evil clouds.
