Press release: Former Strictly star inspires pupils to keeeeep dancing!
As the new series of Strictly Come Dancing begins, lucky pupils from four village primary schools in the Vale of Belvoir have been inspired to ‘Keep dancing!’ by a former Strictly star.
Robin Windsor, a professional dancer who previously partnered with Deborah Meaden, Patsy Kensit and Lisa Reilly on the BBC One award-winning programme, has run a series of dance lessons this week for children at: Waltham-on-the-Wolds CE Primary School, Wymondham CE Primary School, Redmile CE Primary School and Croxton Kerrial CE Primary School.
For the children who attend the schools, which are all part of the Rise Multi-Academy Trust, this was a unique opportunity to learn from an accomplished professional dancer, to enhance their passion for dancing and to keep active throughout their lives.
Robin Windsor, professional dancer and former Strictly Coming Dancing star, said: It has been an absolutely amazing couple of days. It's such a rewarding experience, because you get to see the children light up, they learn something new and their confidence builds throughout the day.
"I think dancing should be compulsory in schools, there are so many positive benefits!"
Julie Hopkins, Executive Headteacher of all four schools, said: “The children were absolutely delighted to take part in a dance lesson with Robin. Many of them have watched Strictly Come Dancing over the years and some have gone to the arena tours, so to learn from one of the former professionals in person is just so thrilling for them.
“We already have a strong commitment to dance in our schools, as our specialist dance teacher, Cheryl Lobo, has been inspiring our children for many years. We are passionate about the many benefits to dancing; not only is it an incredible skill in its own right, but the fun and laughter is good for health and well-being. It promotes fitness and supports long-term memory, plus, it is a great opportunity to create lasting memories with friends and family.”

Donation from The Lions – Melton Mowbray. We would like to say a huge thank you for the very generous donation of £200 from Geoff Tate who took part in a sponsored silence on Friday 21st May and managed 25 hours of complete silence!
The Silence also coincided with success at a local Vaccine Centre that he has been volunteering at as they hit a massive 40,000 vaccines being administered.
As you can see Geoff took advantage of this special occasion and dressed up. The money was used to fund a visit from The Life Education Centre to support our PSHE and Science curriculum.
On behalf of all the children and staff – Thank you, Geoff, and well done!

Congratulations to our superstar in Year 6 for being nominated as Sports Ambassador of the Year at the Melton, Belvoir and Charnwood Sports Awards. This is what they said:
This superstar was new to the school this year and had an immediate impact on the children around him and his teachers. From his very first P.E session he was caring, always offering to help with equipment and set things up/ pack away. During tasks, competition or no competition, he would be seen and heard complementing other children's technique or saying how well they had played. His positive and respectful attitude took only 1 session before other children were doing the same, identifying when someone had done something well or giving it their best effort. He has changed attitude and behaviours across the school!
We are very proud of you indeed!

What a start we have had to our Fun Football sessions! We have consistently had between 30 and 40 children coming to sessions each week. The children have been developing their dribbling, passing and shooting skills whilst also having lots of fun with smiles all round. All children have been enjoying fun activities such as: cannon ball, sharks and fishes, king of the ring and of course a match to finish the hour. The children are split into key stages so KS1 are with Mr Goldspink and KS2 are with Mr Morley. Plenty more fun filled Monday nights to come, so if you fancy coming to have some fun whilst learning, please contact the office…
