Important notes related to PYP ARTS sessions

Important notes related to PYP ARTS sessions

Dear all,

This is to bring to your notice that there are few important activities which are happening in the Drama and Visual arts sessions.

In Visual arts (Humor in Visual arts Unit) Students have reached to the last session of their Summative assessment task (Final work submission). Now they have only one period to complete their final work. Students who are not able to meet the deadlines due to their absents or slow speed are given permission to work in their free play time as well as break time with taking responsibility of important classroom material. I request parents to inquire about the progress of their children’ final art work and motivate them to complete it within deadline by using their time wisely.

In Drama students have explored all the elements of a Theatrical production and now started working on their own production in group of 5 students. This is their summative assessment task which will take long time and students will work with the same group till the end of their final Drama performance.

Here students will write their own script, direct the drama, select/ create character appropriate costume/ properties/makeup, plan to manage settings on the stage, create and record background Music along with the dialog and finally perform through a prerecorded drama audio track. On stage they will be doing lip and body movement as per the dialog and requirement of scene.

All the needed information related to unit process is regularly being updated on students’ emails and Google drive. I request parents to inquire about the same to their children on a frequent basis and encourage them to follow the deadlines with enthusiasm.

For me this is the first time in fountainhead when Grade 5 students are not only responding but creating on “Theatrical production’ with the use of technical elements.

I am really eager and looking forward towards interesting performance by Grade 5 students.

Thank you for reading.

Regards

Kaavya shah (PYP Visual arts and drama facilitator)
