When the school decided to apply for the Schools Active Flag the children, staff and committee members thought it would be a lovely idea to incorporate more of what we do in PE into our school and develop it further. Gymnastics and Dance were the two that were decided on. We decided to go with the Dance first off and may look at Gymnastics down the road. We found the most amazing and highly energetic teacher, Dorinda Cuskelly. Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious and the children love it; Zumba. Yes we love Zumba. The children have learned lovely simple dance routines to songs that are current and that they love. More importantly they have gained confidence and had fun and best of all they are active. Zumba has given children the opportunity to try dance. Some children have gone on to join after school clubs that offer dance. Dance is very trendy at the moment what with Tik Tok. Even the boys loved it!
The children learned dance routines at Halloween which they showcased to the school and the 6th class children got to do something as a finish up/ end of school event. We are delighted to have embraced Zumba and thanks to the children for thinking active and coming up with the idea.
