Performing Arts with Ms McMullin
In Performing Arts students will be exploring the 3 components of Performing Arts: Dance, Drama & Music.
We began the semester with Dance:
Prep, Grade 1/2 & EAL
During the first part of term 1, students have been learning about the elements of dance through the unit called 'School of Fish'. A school of fish moves together in exactly the same way at exactly the same time. Students explored what it looks and feels like to be part of a school of fish as they went on an underwater adventure using drama and dance techniques.
During the Drama component of Performing Arts the students will be learning how to identify some of the elements of drama and how to communicate ideas and stories. They will learn to communicate, speak and act with confidence in front of an audience.
During Music in term 2 students will be learning to sing and play musical instruments and identifying basic beats and rhythm in order to create their own compositions. Students will also begin to understand the role the music plays in their world and in different cultures.
Grade 3/4 and 5/6 will have Performing Arts in Semester 2.
