In Performing Arts, students from Classes 3C, 3D & 3E are exploring elements of music through playing the xylophone as well as learning about a variety of percussion instruments. Students are learning how to sit behind the xylophone, how to hold and use the mallets and how to correctly play the xylophone bars. While learning different songs students are gaining an understanding of beat, rhythm, music notation and melody. Students have been very excited to be learning a musical instrument as well as learning the lyrics to different songs. In Visual Arts, Classes 3A & 3B are modelling with clay. Their goal is to create a Crazy Clay Critter. During this process they will be learning how to mould a pinch pot, how to add features using correct joining techniques, how to add texture and finally how to underglaze and gloss glaze their finished creation. All Year 3 classes have been very enthusiastic and have settled in well ready for an exciting year in the Arts.
