Rambert Dance Company Perform A Linha Curva at Sadlers Wells

Hi, I am Valentina I don’t do gcse dance but I attend lots of Dance clubs so I was invited to the theatre on Tuesday the 21st November to watch a dance company called ‘Rambert’ perform in ‘A Linha Curva’ as reward.

I really enjoyed the creative choreography and how they used the lighting to direct movements, I thought it was very clever. Even as non gcse dance student I understood the theme of having fun, it was very clear and clever. I would recommend that you go and see it. I also enjoyed the other two pieces afterwards, Ms Lungu and Ms coke enjoyed the last weird piece which had live music, comedy and some narration. I promise you it was weird, funny but weird. One thing I would suggest to Rambert is to improve their music of the second piece, I didn’t really enjoy it because I didn’t think it complimented the dance. Thank you to the dance team for inviting me.

BBC Journalist Visit

BBC Journalist Janette Balard came to Lister Media Dept to discuss ‘fake news’ with Yr 7 Specialist Curriculum students, and show them how the news can be manipulated.​ Not only did this develop their Media subject knowledge, but it also made them wiser digital consumers. In addition it was hugely inspiring for them to hear directly from someone with such a successful career within a high profile organisation.

Lister tennis participants had a real treat last week when they were invited to watch the ATP world tour finals at Londons O2 arena. Across the week 30 of our most dedicated students got to witness the best singles and doubles players in the world battle it out in the year end tournament. Students were particularly excited when they discovered that the great Roger Federer had been scheduled for our session. Let’s use this as inspiration to train hard over the coming winter months!

Yes on a Saturday!

All students brought their ‘A’ game to the challenging day and worked really hard to learn the phrases which make up 30% of their GCSE exam.  The dancers were very professional and worked with a high level of concentration to master the phrases and the ‘release’ technique.

Well done!
