Zoe’s Year 2 class recently staged a performance of a special drama and PE production that they have been working on since the start of the term. Year 2 and the Beanstalk is our interpretation of the classic fairy tale.
Each week we have been using our PE time to explore how we can tell a story through music and movement. This is a great way for the pupils to be able to express themselves using a story that they are familiar with.
It also involves plenty of teamwork. The children have worked hard on listening to the narration and understanding how to sequence the story.
Our introduction to gymnastics has also been built into the story. Year 2 have been learning how to perform forward rolls and cartwheels. The children were given a free role to showcase their skills in the short production.
The end result was a fantastic piece of physical drama. We would like to thank the many parents and carers who were able to come along and support the pupils. You can watch a video of the Year 2 show above.
