Strictly-style dance showcase at Bury St Edmunds school
Pupils at a Bury St Edmunds school impressed with their fancy footwork in a Strictly Come Dancing style showcase.
All classes at Guildhall Feoffment Primary, in Bridewell Lane, performed a dance which related to their school work.
The Guildhall Does Strictly event on Monday included a Batman dance based on a Superheroes topic, Umbrellas inspired by a Renoir painting, ‘Dirty Bert the Bandit’ based on the book of the same name and a street dance to Michael Jackson’s ‘Do They Really Care About Us?’.
During the rest of the week, pupils enjoyed other activities linked to dance including artwork and Jazzercise.
The work forms part of the school’s application for an Artsmark award.
Maureen Carman, PE subject leader who organised the event, said: “It was great and the pupils were brilliant. We did it in age order. You could see the progress, the difference between the youngest children through to Year 4.”
The children had been working on their dances for five weeks during their PE lessons.
Before the Strictly event, which was judged by two governors and a teaching assistant, pupils were treated to a demonstration of a waltz by Rev Canon Matthew Vernon and his wife Kate.
