Performing Arts News

What a wonderfully imaginative and fun start to the year we have had in Performing Arts. The Junior School boys and I have been re-evaluating all of the skills required to successfully participate in a Performing Arts lesson through a dynamic activity based on the story A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School by Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaude. In order to help us focus on this creative task, we began and ended the lesson with Elephant Breath to better enable us to tune in and focus. We also reminded ourselves of the importance of self-management skills, such as spatial awareness and time management. Over the next two weeks, the boys will be creating what I'm sure will be hilarious performances based on the aforementioned story. Perhaps your son might like to elaborate on his group's creation.
