Creative and thriving students.
Students should feel comfortable to express their creativity.
Year 10 dancers have just returned from a brilliant dance trip to the Conway Centre, Angelsey. The weekend, run by Homegrown Dance Theatre, included dance workshops on all aspects of GCSE Dance. Students from schools across the country learnt repertoire from professional dances on the GCSE anthology, choreographed dances and learnt 2 of the set phrases. A great weekend was had by all and we are all very tired now! See more photos here:
As we wanted the name to link to our school name, AGGS, we have picked Silver Dance company as Ag is the chemical symbol for Silver!
Congratulations to all the new members of Silver Dance Company and Junior Silver Dance Company.
Thank you to all the year 11 food and nutrition students who have worked so hard during their mock practical assessments this week. Thanks also for all the support, that I know comes from home. The dishes they made all tasted and looked delicious. Some of them are photographed below.
Thank you to everyone who entered the amazing Biology Bake Off competition! The standard this year was incredibly high and made it almost impossible to pick winners. Mrs Hulme and Mrs Clutton had a real challenge and after tasting all the entries decided on winners in different categories:
Most Inventive – Grace, Polina, Eva Hannah – brain on books
Scientific realism – Mimi, Connie, Alicia – red blood cell
Highest technical detail – Aaliyah, Sarah, Zara – plant cell, interior and exterior
Best tasting vanilla – Riya, Maryam, Alisha, Sairish – giant eye ball
Best tasting Chocolate – Ellie, leaf laugh, love
The cakes are being sliced and sold to teachers to raise money for Macmillan. Well done to everyone who entered – as you can see from the pictures the entries are amazing and tasted great too!
This morning, dancers have learnt the set phrase ‘shift’ and created performance pieces using the poem ‘I am meth’ as a stimulus.
We are so impressed with how hard all of them have worked this weekend; they have put 100% into every workshop. We now have lots of ideas and rep ready to use in GCSE dance lessons back at school.
Year 10 had choreography workshops right up till 9pm last night! They created dances based on 3 action words. Then the evening entertainment was….MORE dancing at the disco!
Year 10 have had a very busy day participating in workshops with Boy Blue and creating dances in the style of A Linha Curva and Artificial Things. They have also learnt the set phrase ‘Flux’. They are currently creating choreographies with Home grown Dance Theatre.
Group 1 have been getting their maths heads on this morning! They’ve been enjoying a fabulous workshop with Yolanda from Boy Blue Entertainment. They’ve worked incredibly hard learning the Ninja run from Emancipation of Expressionism.
