Mexican Hat Dance

Today, due to the bad weather, Year 6 were unable to work outside for their P.E. lesson. However, we were able to turn our misfortune into a great P.E. (dance) lesson linked to our Mexico topic, which we had planned for later on this term.
The year group showed that they were able to respond to the traditional Mexican Hat Dance music and create a clear sequence of dance moves showing  their understanding of telling a  story through folk music, working creatively, collaboratively and enthusiastically.The "Jarabe Tapatío", better known internationally as "The Mexican Hat Dance", is a popular Mexican dance that has come to symbolize Mexico both domestically and internationally. It was great to be able to bring a little Mexican flavour to a wet Monday afternoon in Framlingham.
