Performing Arts News

This term the talented boys in Year 3 have been immersed in a unit entitled The Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamen, although sometimes we feel like we're having a history lesson instead of Performing Arts. We began by discussing what the boys already knew about King Tut and Ancient Egypt, and enjoyed looking at the fascinating books the boys brought in from home. We have participated in a series of drama-focused activities, acting out the thoughts and actions of the work party involved in the discovery. These activities have been really fun, however, we realised that they all had a larger purpose, such as to consider and share the pros and cons of a particular course of action, to use logical reasoning, to practice persuasive speech and to create dramatic tension, among many other things.
