The usual smart St George’s uniforms were banished on Friday as grey shorts and pink dresses were swapped for crazy dance outfits and costumes ranging from Michael Jackson to a clown, to a neon fairy and even a killer whale, as children raised money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Each child donated £2 to the charity in order to come to school dressed in their most fun outfit and spend their day immersed in dance.
Children spent their morning learning about dance from other countries and cultures, traditional dance costumes and different styles of dance music. Reception even got creative and made masks to wear while they were dancing.
After lunch the playground was the liveliest venue in Dunstable as children happily whiled away their afternoon bopping in the sunshine. First off was a preview of their Arts Presentation Evening routines to the staff, followed by a huge freestyle circle which gave every child the chance to enter the circle and show off their own moves to the group. Before Home Time there was just enough for a St George’s mini-disco where children were let loose on the dance floor to make up their own dances to some of their favourite songs.
Everyone had a fantastic day and we raised over £100 for Macmillan. Well done, Children!
