Grooving and moving at Banbury Academy

6 of Banbury Academy’s cluster of primary schools enjoyed a morning of grooving and moving on Thursday 10th  November.   The Year 4 students from Queensway, Hillview, Hanwell Fields, St. Mary’s, St. Leonard’s and Dashwood were divided up into small groups and were taught dances devised by Year 8 students as part of their core PE programme.  Fun, engagement and trying your hardest was the emphasis for this inclusion event and it was great to see all the children joining in and enjoying themselves. 

 At the end of the festival the leaders and children took to the stage to perform their dances. A huge well done to all of the children who did a fantastic job of learning the dances and performing them in front of the large audience!

Before the children went they were treated to performances from 2 of the leaders; Ava who performed an extremely skilful highland dance and Isobel who performed a funky street dance. 

 Well done to Taylor, Zaeem, Zara, Logan, Ellie, Tia, Jan, Jack, Malaika, Dante, Benjy, Finnley and Ruby who all received Passion certificates.
