Year 4’s Community Project: ‘Tea Dance Entertainment’.

This week, Year 4 provided an afternoon of World War II ‘Tea Dance Entertainment’. All of the children have been learning a version of the Charleston in their P.E. sessions in Terms 3 and 4 and were very keen to perform this to elderly members of our community. Across the last two terms, the WW2 learning included not only many historical, literary, artistic and mathematical aspects of WW2, but also involved the children learning many songs from the era as part of their music topic, which the children also performed. As well as this, the children had developed their culinary skills by making scones to provide a cream tea at the event. Many children also dressed up in WW2 costumes to get into role and provide some old fashioned entertainment. The dance and the songs were performed fantastically, and the children should all be very proud of themselves!

As well as the performance, we spent another half hour chatting to the clients at Age UK and getting to know each other. There was a lovely atmosphere of respect, understanding and joy shared between the Year 4 children and the elderly people. The children were delighted to discover that two of them had been evacuees during WW2 and one had lived through Nazi Germany!

Thank you again for all of the generous contributions towards making this possible and for all of the hard work that went into the children’s costumes. The children are all very glad that they have been able to have this enriching opportunity.

    This was a great experience for the children and they all looked at ease with the elderly people at Age UK. Thanks Miss Hall and Mr Sharp for organising this.

    BA – I liked chatting to the elderly people at Age UK and I learnt a lot of things about their life. I liked making the scones as well.
