Students in Grade 5/6 will develop their ability to monitor their own learning and select appropriate strategies to help them make sense of and create increasingly complex and/or challenging works for personally and socially relevant purposes. They reflect on and talk about the strategies that have helped them construct and communicate meaning and identify steps they can take to improve. In Drama, they will expand the range of forms and conventions to include more movement/dance connections, storytelling, prepared improvisation and short scenes, day in the life, inner/outer circle, and corridor of voices. They will select appropriate symbols, manipulate story elements, and experiment with various techniques to create different effects for different audiences. In order for them to expand their horizons in drama they will use research skills to expand their understanding of different kinds of problems and to help them find solutions. Their sense of audience continues to develop through their viewing of professional theatre productions in research, and through sharing their own work in classroom and/or more formal settings.
In Visual Arts students will use their knowledge of the elements and principles of design to solve artistic problems and analyse works of art. They generate and develop visual ideas in response to a variety of motivations, using imagination, observation, and a study of artists’ works, and incorporate into their art ideas gained from sources such as independent reading.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
