Twenty-two children from our wonderful year 6 did Simon de Senlis Primary School proud yesterday. They took part in a performing arts evening with 7 other groups from across the county. We all saw the dance during our fantastic Remembrance Day assembly; however, when on stage, with lights and emphasised music, the dance was brilliant!
All children put in their all, to an “effort-level of 20”. This was obvious through every:
- Shooting of a gun (Selin cracked it in the end…).
- Facial expression.
- Dropping of a poppy.
- Picking up of a wounded soldier.
- Single movement.
The list of adjectives to describe this evening could go on and on.
On top of the dance being amazing, the children should be especially proud of themselves for the effort they put in. After several rehearsals on stage, with lighting introduced, small amendments and spacial differences, the children still wore a smile. As we went into our studio, after at least five run-throughs, Mrs Evans asked, “One more time?”.
The children responded with an uproar, “Yes!” and went on to acknowledge that they were still enjoying it. Still determined to perfect something already so great.
This process of evaluating was great to witness… A skill that all the children will no doubt retain and use across their lives!
Well done again to all of you involved!
