Dancing in Rm 17!

As part of book week, we have been learning about the classic story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.  In PE, we were working in groups to make up dances to the ‘Oompa Loompa’ song.  We had a lot of fun creating our dances and enjoyed performing them to the class.
