CHILDREN at an infants school made up their own dance inspired by bubbles.

The youngsters at Cumberland Infants, Southsea, were asked to think of words to describe what bubbles are like.

And then they used dance to express ideas such as moving slowly, shimmering and light.

The six and seven-year-olds, who are learning about adjectives and adverbs in their literacy lessons, brought the themes to life during a PE lesson.

Beverly Naylor, headteacher, said: ‘The children had so much fun and they were constantly coming up with new adjectives and adverbs to move to.

‘They are fundamental to sentence building and will make a big difference to the quality of the children’s writing.

‘What was particularly nice was seeing the interaction between the children, and how they were working off each other to come up with new words and dance moves.

‘We’re trying to make literacy fun and judging by the reaction of the boys and girls dancing around it did the trick!’
