This term, Year 4 students have been studying Drama in the Performing Arts room.
Over the first few weeks, we have focused on the area of storytelling through silent role play. Students participated in individual, paired and group activities learning how to use facial expression, body language, gesture and character development to convey a story, idea or message. Students were also given specific scenarios to rehearse while working in small group situations. Each group then performed a silent role play scenario to their peers to complete the unit of work. Audiences successfully guessed the stories behind the scenarios which gave our students a great sense of achievement during and after each performance. For the remainder of the term we will be focussing on completing our Carnevale Masks for our Carnevale Parade and beginning a unit of Music.
