Oregon Trail

Following the study of a North American topic in Year 5, children looked at the clash of cultures between the Native American Indians and the Pioneers following the trail to Oregon during the 1800's.

 

These are some of the photographs which were taken of the preparation for a dance display at The Victoria Theatre in Hanley in March, 2015.  33 children from years 3 - 6 attended dance club every Tuesday after school and worked hard to complete the interpretation of a picture for the theme 'Picture this' as part of a South and North Stoke Schools Dance festival. The picture we chose was 'The Overland Trail' by Frank Tenney Johnson.The pictures below document the children doing a dress rehearsal for KS2 in the school hall and then on stage in front of a packed theatre audience.
