Dance Term 2

Cha Cha

I've enjoyed learning the Cha Cha, it was difficult at the start but when we entered the second week of doing Cha Cha it wasn't anymore.

I've been challenged by holding hands with a boy, but as we did it more often it was easier than I thought.

I have surprised myself being able to go to Friday night proformance infront of the big crowd.

I learnt how to do back to back with my partner, which was difficult at first but now I can do it.

I found out that it was hard at the start but I found it easier the more we did it.

I would now like to do it again throughout the year.

Hip Hop

I've enjoyed doing Hip Hop because we learnt a lot everyday and I learnt a lot of new dance moves.

I was challenged when we started as it wasn't the easiest but as we did it I found it less tricky.

I surprised myself with being able to do all the moves in front of people on Friday night proformance.

I learnt to do new dance moves and to do face empressions while dancing.

I found out that Hip Hop wasn't as tricky as I thought it was, as I learnt I improved.

I would now like to do dance again as it was a highlight of my term!

Multi Cultural Day

Multi Cultural Day

On Tuesday the 21st of February it was multicultural day. The first rotation I learnt how to use chopsticks. The challenge was trying to pick up marbles and jellybeans with chopsticks.

What I enjoyed was learning how to use chopsticks and picking up marbles and jellybeans.

The second rotation was learning about Israel with Or and his Mum. Then in that session some girls and some boy got some henna done on their hands and when the henna was on it was hard to eat. What i enjoyed was learning about Israel.

When we did the third session we did learning about Russia. I learnt that it can get down to minus 71 degrees. When it gets that cold boiling hot water can turn into ice when it is thrown outside.
