HUNDREDS of primary school pupils have been moving and shaking in a series of dance workshops at a Malpas high school.
The dance classes have been delivered to 224 pupils from the nine feeder primary schools at Bishop Heber High School.
Dance teacher Wendy Peers has altered the classes to suit the wide age range of the children.
Malpas Alport children from Year 1 worked on a dance based on Percy the Park Keeper, Shocklach’s four to seven-year-olds’ subject was Animals at the Zoo and Huxley’s young pupils concentrated on People who Help.
Older pupils’ topics ranged from litter and recycling at Farndon to Ancient Egypt at Bickerton, homes in the past at Tattenhall an Indian village at Clutton and, finally, a dance based on the picture Tobias and the Angel hung at the National Portrait Gallery in London for Tushingham school.
All the dance workshops were funded by Chester Sports Partnership.
Jayne Haggis, Bishop Heber’s schools sport coordinator, said: I am delighted the project has gone so well. The pupils and class teachers thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot.”
