PERFORMING ARTS 2013

EXPLORING THE WORLD OF DRAMA
Together we will focus on the skills of speaking clearly, body and spatial awareness, improvisation and acting. The drama learning focus will support classroom literacy by integrating this Term’s focus of persuasive text. This will be supported by exploring advertisements.

———————————————–

 Wow! 1/2CE wanted to perform their persuasive ad again, so here is the second video advertisement.

Can you see the improvement?

Reflecting on our learning in Terms 1 and 2 2013
During Terms One and Two students have learnt about the fundamental elements of music (pitch, volume and tempo)
Some of their reflections are....
I learnt about tempo. Tempo is fast and slow and in the middle speed (everyone agrees with Ned's accurate description)
I have learnt to use actions to show high middle and low sounds(everyone agrees with Imogen's accurate description)
I have learnt about volume. I use volume when I sing. (Jamie)
I would like to learn an instrument at school besides the recorder (several students agree with Simon)
I learnt that music is made up of sounds and silence (everyone agrees with Issac's acurate description)
Well done 1/2CE - smiles and thumbs up!

Welcome to the students of 1/2ET in 2012. We will have a wonderful year exploring music, acting, singing and dance together. How exciting – it’s a whole school production year!!!

Wow 1/2ET does this melody sound familiar? The melody is from an old Irish stage song called Killaloe. Enjoy!

Here are all the lyrics for the Drover’s Dream. Isn’t Aria clever to learn all them?
Drover’s Dream

One night when travelling sheep, my companions lay asleep
There was not a star to illuminate the sky
I was dreaming, I suppose, for my eyes were nearly closed
When a very strange procession passed me by
First there came a kangaroo, with his swag of blankets blue
A dingo ran beside him for a mate
They were travelling mighty fast, and they shouted as they passed
“We’ll have to jog along, it’s getting late”

The pelican and the crane, they came in from off the plain
To amuse the company with a Highland Fling
The dear old bandicoot played a tune upon his flute
And the native bears sat round them in a ring
The drongo and the crow sang us songs of long ago
While the frill-necked lizard listened with a smile
And the emu standing near with his claw up to his ear
Said, “Funniest thing I’ve heard for quite a while”

The frogs from out the swamp, where the atmosphere is damp
Came bounding in and sat upon the stones
They each unrolled their swags and produced from out their bags
The violin, the banjo and the bones
The goanna and the snake, and the adder wide awake
With the alligator danced “The Soldier’s Joy”
In the spreading silky oak the jackass cracked a joke
And the magpie sang “The Wild Colonial Boy”

Some brolgas darted out from the tea-tree all about
And performed a set of Lancers very well
Then the parrot green and blue gave the orchestra its cue
To strike up “The Old Log Cabin in the Dell.”
I was dreaming, I suppose, of these entertaining shows
But it never crossed my mind I was asleep
Till the Boss beneath the cart woke me up with such a start
Yelling, “Dreamy, where the hell are all the sheep?”

Below is an audio and fun video link for Colour My World plus the lyrics. Have fun learning your school production song 1/2ET

You’ll never see a dark cloud hanging round me.
Now there is only blue skies to surround me.
There’s never been a gray day since you found me.
Everything I touch is turning to gold.

Oh, you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!
Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!
Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!
And if you colour my world just paint it with your love!
Just colour my world.

Just as long as I know you’re thinking of me,
there’ll be a rainbow always up above me.
Since I found the one who really loves me,
everything I touch is turning to gold.

So you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!
Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!
Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!
And if you colour my world just paint it with your love!
Just colour my world.
Um.

Sunshine yellow.
Orange blossums.
Laughing faces
everywhere!
Yeah!

Oh, you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!
Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!
Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!
And if you colour my world just paint it with your love.
Just colour my world.
Colour my world.
Oh, colour my world.
Colour my world!

The 1/2s are very happy to present “I Like to Sing”
