The Foundation students have begun a new unit of work this term in PA.
They will be working on the unit of Dance and Music. The music unit will be specifically focusing on singing.
They have been having lots of fun taking part in some dance activities using props such as Scarves.
I love these photos I snapped of some of the perps dancing with the scarves. They are moving so fast the photos are almost blurry.
To finish off the semester in Performing Arts the prep students put on a number of small plays based on the book ‘How The Birds Got Their Colours’. They used coloured scarfs hidden in their tops so show the explosion of colour from the poor little doves foot and tried to use their bodies to show what character they were acting out. It was lots of fun. Everyone joined in and did a great job. Well done preps!
