Junior Drama Term 3

PRE-PRIMARY DRAMA

In Term Three, the children in Pre-Primary have been learning about a facet of Aboriginal Culture and acting out a story called “The Pangkarlangu and the Lost Child”. They have also been participating in a whole class structured improvisation, set in a Pet Shop, where they were pretending to be animal and human characters. In addition, the children had lots of fun in a Dance Drama where they portrayed astronauts exploring a new planet. Later in the term, when they participate in other whole class improvisations, the children will be pirates on their sailing ship; as well as animals at a celebration dance. They can be seen here portraying animals and humans in a pet shop; astronauts just about to explore space; and remembering the most important rule – “To Have Fun!”

YEAR ONE AND YEAR TWO

Drama is especially exciting this term for the Year One and Year Two children. They are very busy learning & rehearsing the plays for their End of Year Junior Music & Drama Concert in November. Both plays are musicals, with the songs taught by Mr Loiacano. The Year Ones will perform “Beneath the Sea” – a tale involving some very special sea creatures; whilst the Year Twos will perform “The Lost Sandcastle” – a fun story set at the beach.

Also this term, during Book Week, all the junior classes will learn about author Diana Chase. The PP’s will act out parts of her book ”Angel in a Gum Tree”, whilst the Year Ones and Two’s  will learn and rehearse their plays, which were both also written by Diana Chase! In the photos below, the Year One and Year Two children can be seen rehearsing their plays.

Our visitors were introduced by Mrs Harben, a Whadjuk Noongar,  who gave a special Welcome to Country address.   The Datiwuy Dreaming group told stories from their land with song, dance and drama. Students joined in the singing of children’s songs – Baru (Crocodile) and Guya (The Little Fish), as well as accompanying the singing, Yidaki (Digeridoo), and Bilma (Tapping sticks) with …… ukuleles!  The group also performed beautiful traditional spiritual dances related to their culture. IMG_9811IMG_9818IMG_9738
