Blooming Performing Arts at BSB Sanlitun

Performing Arts is blooming at BSB Sanlitun and the children have made a very energetic and expressive start to the term!

Students and teachers alike were excited to use the new facilities, especially the fantastic Dance Studio in Li Building. From Reception through to Year 6, children across the school have had an opportunity to use this wonderful new space with Mrs Ormandy. We are now very much looking forward to putting on some fantastic performances for you this year!

In addition to Dance and Drama lessons, the Music and Choral curriculum also got under way and it was lovely to be reminded of how talented the students are. Whether studying World Music (Year 4) or the Planets (Year 5), Beethoven (Year 3) or the Blues (Year 6) the children have impressed us with their knowledge of, enthusiasm for and curiosity about music. In Reception and Key Stage 1, the focus is on musical elements: beat, pulse and rhythm; loud and soft (dynamics); high and low sounds (pitch). Ms Iva, Mr Champness and the students have all had lots of fun playing and singing songs to develop these concepts.

Registration for IMPs (Individual Music Programmes) is now complete, proving to be very popular once again. We hope to see many of these students in the Orchestra ASA. We were also delighted to see lots of Key Stage 2 children auditioning for the Performance Choir and we hope to have a very strong ensemble this term. We will keep you posted about choral performances outside of school in the run up to Christmas.
