They will start by choosing a song to interpret artistically, that is, by using their voice, dancing and moving creatively, producing sounds, creating costumes, props and scenery. As there are only 8 sessions the children will likely not be able to finish the project but their experience will create an awareness about what it takes to create a show and a desire to learn more. We will be visiting the backstage of SAS high school theatre for an exposure to a professional setting which will hopefully inspire and create further curiosity in the children about artistic performance. Their learning journey will be documented and shared with parents. In the last session parents are invited to attend their performance in progress. Mrs. Gavin (Room P-213)
