This week students have enjoyed a slight variation to our routine. While teachers have been attending an IB workshop for 2 days, Mr Tommy from Minami campus has been continuing our program. Elementary Class students have also enjoyed spending a little more time with Milky Way students. Although our tennis lesson had to be canceled, students still enjoyed their swimming lesson on Monday and their gym lesson on Wednesday. We also continue to go out each morning (weather permitting of course) for our exercise routine.
Students are having a lot of fun in their rehearsals for the end-of-year concert on Saturday, December 19. They are doing very well remembering their lines, speaking in a loud expressive voice, and using the correct actions for their play part as well as for their dance. On the day of the concert students do not need any particular costumes or props as we have already organized these at school.
Music practice has also been a daily event using the piancas for 4 songs, and percussion instruments for a further 2 songs. Rhythm is certainly an important focus of these practices. Students need to practice their pianica songs being careful to stay on the same rhythm for the entire song. Students have tended to speed up as each song progresses.
