Made 2 Dance shared thier arts inspiration with the class. They have worked hard over the past two weeks to gather information and discuss with thier partner who thier arts inspiration is. They picked artist, dancers, musicians and dance crews. We then shared our top 5 facts and reasons why they picked that person/group
Made 2 Dance went along to see Corali’s Triple Bill at Ovalhouse
We were really impressed with the work-in-progress that was shared by Corali dancers and guest artists.
We reviewed the work by first of all remembering our favourite movement from the three performances to warm up our bodies and had lots of fun exploring.
Then Made 2 Dance’s wrote thier reviews and we put our evidence in our folders
At the end of the session we had a group disucssion on the Triple Bill………..Here are our last final thoughts -plus a few added extras at the end 🙂
This little hedgehog turned up on our plot today. We gave it some food and milk and it was very hungry. A neighbour made a nest for it in her shed and will check it every day. Hedgehogs hibernate under piles of wood and leaves, so it was probably getting ready for bed in the bonfire pile on our new plot. Luckily we used our incinerator and sorted the wood out before we burnt it!
Here are some of this year’s crops.
We also had a good harvest of potatoes, cabbage and curly kale.
Winter crops like Mizuna and Red mustard have been planted.
Loganberries and raspberries were plentiful and really delicious, and we also picked strawberries, gooseberries and currants.
The trees donated by the Open Orchard project are thriving and some have fruited in their first year. We made Quince jelly.
