The Animal Race

Today in LA, Yanni, Miniya, Jade and Jorji made an animation.

It was a race and the tiger won and the duck was going in circles.

We hope you like it.

This time we only took 26 photos so its only a short video, next time we will make a bigger video.

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes!

Alison shared her interest of hip hop dancing with us in the grade 1 unit. For Student Choice Workshops, we have been encouraging the grade 1’s to share their interests and passions to explore. As part of the Student Choice Workshop, Alison facilitated a small group to learn a hip hop dancing routine. They worked together to source a routine that they wanted to learn and to independently assist each other with learning the moves. The group performed the routine in front of the green screen and filmed their dancing. They were very puzzled to understand how the green screen actually works! AJ now explains “it’s like a magic trick!”. The children participated through the whole process from learning the dance to editing the movie on the computer. They are all very proud of their creation and it will inspire many more mini projects to come!
