Rowing Out

Rowing - Activity 3

Watch Rowing Out

Ask pupils to guess/explain exactly what Bec is doing at each point.

Teach the whole class the sequence of mimed movement using the Rowing Out explanation text, stopping and starting the film as required.

Now get each group to run through the same sequence but this time with the whole group working together around a single imaginary gig.

Give each group a chance to ‘perform’ their sequence being watched by the rest of the class.

Encourage constructive feedback, finding ways of making the mime ever more precise and believable eg different people working with the same imaginary object try to keep the size and shape accurate.
