As part of our outreach programme, our Cool to be Curious collaboration this term involved a double session on dance and drama with two local school groups being supported by Putney’s Year 11 mentors.
In the first session Mrs Armstrong worked with the children on movement using passages from the novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
The second session revolved around dance, led by specialist Roehampton dance teachers. The pupils listened to four different pieces – two modern and two classical before coming up with individual written words to describe each piece.
They picked one of the pieces and attributed a physical movement to each word, to make up their own dance.
