Exploring the Arts

This week we have been diving deep into the Arts as we start to get ready for the Arts Celebration in Week 5.

The Arts is one of my passions as I have been involved with improvised theatre and comedy for many years now. These days I don't have as much time for them and I always look for ways to explore them through the Arts curriculum. 

Check out some of the activities we got up to this week:

We tried dancing to different kinds of music. We had a mixture of fast and slow music and had to see how we might move along with our bodies.

We recorded some of the ways we were dancing

The next day we tried some skills in Drama. We played a game where we had to make an environment using our bodies. See if you can guess what we were trying to make?

Did you guess we were a playground. There is a swing, a flying fox, a trampoline, a slide, a dog being walked and a tree. Guess who got to be a tree?

We will be linking all these new skills to our inquiry learning next week and seeing how we can share our learning with you in some exciting new ways.
