Year 7 have spent the day exploring the Arts during their Innovation Day today. Visitors from the Bollywood Brass Band delivered workshops in dance and drumming. Students have learned about classical Indian instruments and the dance steps and techniques used to create those exciting Bollywood Dance routines.
Mrs Baker ran an Installation workshop inspired by they colours and geometry of Indian culture, based on the work by artist Suzan Drummen.
Finally, all the students have written their own ‘Spoken Word’ poems which will be entered in the National Young Writer’s ‘Busta Rhyme’ competition. Spoken Word poems explore issues that the writers feel passionate about. We look forward to hearing how our young people get on. (https://www.youngwriters.co.
