In the Victorian Curriculum, The Arts develops students’ creative and expressive skills through learning about the different practices, disciplines and traditions that have influenced the expression of culture within the world they live. Students express, represent and communicate ideas in contemporary, traditional and emerging arts forms. In Performing Arts students’ roles are both artist/performer and audience as they explore Dance, Drama and Music responding to others work and creating their own.
Performing Arts at Templestowe Park
During Semester 1 2020, Prep, Grade 1 and 3 students have one weekly session in Performing Arts with Miss Emma Hunt. Throughout the semester students will be exposed to the disciplines of Dance, Drama and Music completing different units of work that involve looking at and responding to various elements within these areas. Students will have the opportunity to build upon and develop new skills and techniques as they create and make their own works.
This semester, Prep have explored making music with Boomwhackers and devising their own dance routines. Grade 1 have looked at world music and percussion, and have been learning to create acting performances without words. Grade 3 have learned musical concepts such as rhythm and reading notation in their recorder unit.
Grade 2, 4, 5 and 6 students will have Performing Arts during Semester 2 of the 2020 school year.
