Weekly Reflection #2

This week, we went to the library and read the Backpack story. It is about the history of backpacks.

We also went to PE and Mr Steiner Badminton rackets and birdies to practice. After, we learned how to take down the nets. Mr Brodie read a book called Shi-Shi-Etko. She is a girl living in Canada and loves nature. She is spending as much time as she can with her family, because the government wants children to go to boarding so that they learn to be “Canadian”. Her grandmother tell her to make a memory bag before she goes to not forget where she comes from. She puts things in her bag from nature, her grandma says “where ever you go, what ever you do, never forget who you are”. We made a memory bag like Shi-Shi-Etko.

In Performing Arts, We learned some of the basics of playing the ukulele like how to hold the instrument correctly, the parts of the ukulele and some of the notes.

Mr Brodie let us plan our own afternoon. We brainstormed the central idea. In Visual arts, we were given a popsicle stick to make letters, it was really fun.

Today, we brainstormed what the unit elements were.

Performing Arts Light Painting

In Performing Arts, I am learning about dance and how we can make dances with everyday actions, like brushing your teeth, walking to school etc. We are making a light painting, first you have to come up with what kind of light painting we want to make, then we have write and draw what movements we have to do, finally we can make the light painting the room has to be dark and you need some sort of light attached to your body and then you can take a picture using a special app. Our Central Idea is called: Patterns can be represented through a combination of art forms.
