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.
Ellie in Year 8 represented Newham in the London Youth Games Cross Country last Saturday 18 November. The course was tough but she crossed the finish line with a smile on her face in very bad weather conditions! Please congratulate her for this achievement.
U13 Girls v Forest Gate
Last Thursday 16 November Lister played it’s first ever Rugby match, a huge moment in Lister’s sporting history and a massive moment for our girls who got in there before the boys! #girlpower
This year Lister and Forest Gate have secured RFU coaching from East London Rugby Club. Coach James works with a variety of classes but mainly within our specialist PE curriculum as well as running Rugby Club on the field every Monday after school from 3.15pm-4.15pm.
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!
All GCSE Dance students from Years 9-11 had the privilege of learning the compulsory GCSE Set Phrases by AQA approved instructor Delene Gordon on Saturday 08:30-13.15.
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 to the following students that competed in the Newham Badminton Championships.
