Our concert theme is PLAY, EXPLORE, LEARN.  This in in line with the belief that children learn best through play and exploration.  The dances are varied, fun and colourful.  Many hours of practice and hard work have been put in.  The process of preparation is important to instill the spirit of teamwork, patience and confidence as well as to develop the children's (as teachers') music & rhythm skills, listening to instructions and directions and kinesthetic development.  So much learning is taking place during the span of time... 

I would just like to share some of the action that is taking place.  See you in November 11 for the concert!  Not sharing info about the dances though, meant to be a surprise!  We are working on the backdrop,  creating collages of masterpieces by ALL THE CHILDREN.    Teacher Mee spent an afternoon teaching Teacher Jane and I how to use artist Jackson Pollock's method to splash colours using unconventional colouring and painting tools such as sponges, brushes, mops, brooms and roller. We made only 4 pieces but  IT WAS FUN BUT MESSY!!!  Can you imagine the big mess when the children start creating???  Have yet to start on this project, dreading the mess that we will make during the process.  You can refer to the website to get a better idea of Pollock's art.
