Stomp

videoThat was fun! The build up to this performance included experiences that each of the Year 3 teachers gave. 
I taught the students some elements of drama, Mrs Excell made art with rubbish, 
Mrs Crochrane shared with the children her trip to Egypt and taught the children how to write their name in hieroglyphics, 
Mrs Kruijer taught the children to play the ukulele and 
Mrs Metcalf helped Miss Sherra. 
So as you can see it was a team effort and the children learnt many different skills. What the teachers enjoyed the most was working with and getting to know the children from different classrooms. The children enjoyed mixing with different groups of children from each classroom.
