So, we have had a pretty busy term. The year 6’s had created their freeze-frames performance task and had the opportunity to practice reflecting on and evaluating their performances. We also assessed Criterion A – Knowledge and Understanding through a comprehension task followed by an oral presentation, where students read different pieces of information related to Mime and Pantomime and then taught the other students what they had learnt.
The year 7’s also had an opportunity to learn about a new topic related to Improv Theatre and then teach it to other students. Their oral presentation was also used to assess Criterion A. The students also had the opportunity to play some Theatresports rounds, where students would sit in groups and then each group is given a prompt like an opening line, or a closing line, or a title, or an emotion, and the students had to improvise for a minute. They really enjoy these sorts of activities.
