From One Big Production to another!!
At school we have weekly lessons in Italian. We learn the language and all about their culture. Once a year we have a special day to share and celebrate our learning. This years Italian day was based on an Ancient Roman Theme.
We all dressed in Togas or other Italian attire, we played soccer, ate pizza and gelato and did Italian Craft activities throughout the day. We were also entertained by some Italian performers who were hilarious. We Love italian Day!!
We celebrated all our talents and learning today. The students performed in a talent show. The acts included playing guitar, keyboards and percussion instruments. Some groups sang and others put on a puppet show. We have developed and discovered some great new talents this term!

Last week we were very lucky to have Ambient Orchestras come to our school and inspire us to become songwriters, musicians and performers. http://www.ambientorchestras.com/
We were divided into 4 groups. Each group wrote a song about one of the 4 seasons, made up dance moves, then incorporated music and sound effects. It was an amazing day as we all developed new talents and became performers. The whole school came to watch our show. We felt proud!
