Performing Arts News

Inspired by a recent bush school experience, the Pre-Primary boys have been inquiring into different movements and sounds associated with jungles. We began by reading a few pages out of the book Jungle Days, Jungle Nights. Individually, the boys drew one picture for each of the following categories: weather, people, animals and plants. These prompted many interesting discussions as they improvised and suggested movements and sounds for each of their pictures. Next, the boys joined in groups of four to create a performance. The boys discussed performance etiquette including standing still at the beginning and end to let the audience know when it was time to be entertained, and when it was time to give a round of applause.
