Performing Arts News

The boys in Year 3 have been exploring how different musical elements can create different feels and emotions in music. Using various percussion instruments, body percussion and their voices, they rehearsed and performed a piece called In A Dark Wood as a whole class, which focused on creating variety with duration and dynamics. One of their favourite activities was creating movements for the Oonka Chukka Haka. This activity focused on beat division, performing canon and teamwork. When thinking about how to present their work, the boys also had to think about the elements of dance, particularly the use of different levels to create visual interest. Here are some photos of their starting and finishing poses:
