Arts Appreciation

January 27, 2023

The Arts Appreciation Program promotes the enjoyment  and appreciation of music, dance, drama, and the visual arts, through a broad range of activities and mediums. 

The Arts is a combination of Drama, Dance, Music and the Visual Arts. The school year begins with Drama, second term is Music and after Spring Break, students focus on Dance. Make sure to wear gym clothing and shoes you can move in!

The Arts has been filled with the sound of MUSIC! Primary students have been practicing pitch through the Solfege Hand Signals and singing. We are learning many songs and practicing reading the music notation symbols for Quarter Note (Ta) and pair of Eighth Notes (Ti Ti). 

Grade 5 and 6 students have presented their Music Genre Presentations. After first learning of the impact of music and the popular genres from 1920 – 1990, students are now teaching one another and me about their favourite music genres from the years 2000-2023. You can see their posters on their Seesaw accounts. 

Grade 3 and 4 students have been reviewing how to read music notation and are preparing for the Steel Pans which were set up in The Arts room on Monday, January 23rd. Rooms 33, 34, 35, 40, 36, 25, 30 and 27 will be playing the Steel Pans and Rooms 4, 8, 15 and 7 will be learning how to play Xylophones, Rhythm Sticks and Boom Wackers.
