Welcome back to Media / Arts

 

This term I will be focussing on the basic skills that are used to create and design our work pieces across each level. I will be emphasising colour, pattern and shape in the junior areas and how we can present work pieces that communicate our ideas to an audience with some technology.

 

I will work on the design process in the middle and senior areas but allow the students to use the technology skills that they already know and look at different strategies that they can use to communicate to their audiences.

 

Media artsWe will be using a variety of apps across the school. ChatterPix is a fun one that I have found that is easy to use and free to download.

Message from Ms Ladson:

 

In Foundation, Year 1/2 & Year 3/4 students will be exploring the subject of Music. They will be experimenting with different sounds and learning how to combine these. They will learn to listen and respond to music, becoming aware of the elements of beat, rhythm, pitch, dynamics and tempo as they sing, play, improvise and move to music. Students will also learn to use their voice and other instruments appropriately and safely.

 

In Year 5/6 students will be exploring drama, particularly performing scripted drama, independently and collaboratively with their peers. Students will learn to develop characters through their voice, movement, and develop stage presence for their upcoming Cross Arts Performance in Term 2.
