Star Project

The STAR project is an exciting dance project exploring wellbeing. The project is for children in Reception to Year 6 & everyone will take part across the year. It is led by NHS North East and North Cumbria’s Child Health and Wellbeing Network and delivered locally by TIN Arts. Pupils will complete eight dance sessions, as well as other activities about the topics covered in the dance sessions. At the end of the project, children will share what they have been doing in the STAR project with you – their parents/carers. This will be either a performance in school or a video that will be sent home.

Project Themes

At the start of project, children will watch videos of performances by North Ballet. These performances introduce the themes the children will learn about in their dance sessions.

Key Stage 1 pupils will watch the children’s ballet ‘Ugly Duckling’ which provides a platform to explore ideas of being included and excluded.
