P1 and P1/2 Scottish Dancing

P1 and P1/2 have been learning all about Scotland. As part of this learning, they have been practising Scottish Country Dancing in the gym. The children have learned Strip the Willow, St Bernard’s Waltz and have been introduced to the very tricky Gay Gordons! They have worked so hard and decided to use some of the steps they have learned to create their own dance sequences. The children used side stepping, galloping, skipping, waltzing, twirling and pas-de-bas steps in their dances which they choreographed to music with beats of 8. Here are some action shots!
