This terms focus is on Creativity.
Prep students will explore the universal appeal of fairy tales and guides students to think laterally and creatively about common tales. Students create a customised theatre and puppet to depict their topsy turvy tale.
Grade 1/2 will will work in groups to design and build their own robot buddy. They will be scaffolded through selecting materials to construct their robot and will work at programming their robot to do chores in their bedroom.
Students in grade 3/4 will be scaffolded through the creative process of developing interesting characters, settings, and stories as they build a story. They will develop storyboards, design and build props for purpose and photograph moments of their story.
Our senior students will gain a real-life understanding of the design and production process when creating a brand new product. Each student produces an item that is marketed and then sold at a market called ‘Bizarre Bazaar’. The item that is produced must be original. Proceeds of the market are then directed to the students’ charity of choice.
This unit will also involve a Creativity Expo on November 22nd 4.30pm - 6.30pm where all the student's work during the unit will be on display. This will also include a display from our fabulous Visual Arts program.
We look forward to seeing you there!
