Our Dance Team were crowned East of England and N London Champions at the regional finals of The Great Big Dance Off competition held at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage on Monday.

Woodcroft are the current UDOIT National Dance Champions, and we came second the last time The Great Big Dance Off competition could run before COVID19, so it was great to get our 2022 campaign off to a winning start!

Celebrating the Arts at Woodcroft

Last year Woodcroft Primary School was selected to become a prestigious Trinity Champion Centre for the 2021 – 2022 academic year. This was in recognition of our successful delivery of the Bronze Arts Award; a nationally accredited Trinity College qualification. Last week Trinity sent along one of their photographers to capture a day in the life of the Arts at Woodcroft. Take a look below at some of the activities that they enjoyed on Wednesday.

In the photographs you can can see our dance team rehearsing for the upcoming Barnet Dance Festival and Great Big Dance Off events. Year 3 were in the hall demonstrating the ukulele skills that they learn as part of their weekly whole class instrumental lessons. Year 4 were taking part in choral singing as part of our exciting music curriculum. Then one of our musical instrumentalists was observed practising the trumpet. On that day we also welcomed international pianist, Hui-Ling, to perform pieces from Chopin in  a special musical recital. Finally, Year 6 were involved in the visual arts that form part of their Arts Award portfolios. In these sessions our pupils plan, deliver and evaluate their own lessons that are delivered groups of their peers.
