You may not think it but copying from a just dance tutorial is harder then it looks.
Yesterday the whole school performed in a performing arts concert. But we weren’t just going to show up and do some dance nope, we are more PROFESSIONAL.
Our dance actually took a lot of work. The first thing we did was pick a song…
For a couple of weeks we couldn’t decide on a song because the girls wanted one song and the boys wanted another. In the end we decided to do a mash up of thunderstruck and lean on. We practiced that for a week but the moves weren’t really working, so the next week Mrs Coot, our performing arts teacher, asked us if we wanted to do a song called Dynamite. We all agreed to do Dynamite and we started practicing the next week.
We learnt our dance by copying a just dance tutorial. After a couple of weeks we decided as a class to have a trick circle. The first trick was Sophie and Charlize did a back bend walked and then kicked back onto their feel while Fintan did the worm in the middle. Sophie, Charlize and Mikaylah did the scorpion next Jarrod tricks with his soccer ball and finally… I DID A TRICK!
With my friends Amy, Madi and Amelia I did a Irish dance called the four hand reel.
Before the concert I felt nervous but when I got up on stage all my nerves went away.
For the last couple of weeks the year fives have been working on picture story books that we are going to give to our prep buddy’s next year. It took ages to write but I’m finished.
The first thing we had to do was think of an idea then we wrote a draft. After that we typed our story then we published our book and drew the pictures. My favorite thing we drawing pictures to match my story. Next time I will try and manage my time better because I had to do a lot of homework.
It was hard work but I’m finally finished.
Resilience is staying strong and never giving up.
Today at assembly be performed a dance about resilience to the school. The song we used was called titanium. The song represents resilience because the chorus is ‘you shoot me down but I won’t fall’ and that’s what I had to do when I was learning how to ride a bike. I fell of but I crept on trying and eventually I could ride perfectly.
