Dancing to show the Great Fire of London!

Oct 13, 2020Latest News, Physical Education, Year 2

Year 2 have been learning about the Great Fire of London, in 1666, in our history lessons. We have also been choreographing our own dance routines to show different parts of this famous event. First, we have choosen how to re-enact the Londoners, going about their lives and going to sleep on Sunday 2nd September 1666. Next, our music changes and we become the sparks of the fire itself! We have chosen spiked positions, using high and low positions to create our sparks. Then, the music changes again and we are Londoners once more, climbing over the rooftops to escape the flames. The final part of our dance is to move like we are rowing away across the Thames. To make sure that our dance was successful, we have chosen start and end positions, listened carefully to the music for our cues and also counted some of the beats of the music. Well done, 2J!
