To draw a picture of the Performing Arts.
- Draw a picture of something you enjoy that is related to the Performing Arts.
- It could be a picture of an activity you actually do outside school or enjoy to do.
- You could draw yourself dancing, singing, acting, using dress ups, performing on stage in a concert, using puppets or making plays.
- You may even like to draw a picture of a musical, movie or play you may have watched and enjoyed.
Write a few sentences about your drawing and explain you are doing. If you would like to share with Miss McKelvie send your drawing and sentences to email@example.com. 🙂
To act and perform one of your favourite stories.
- Choose a picture story book that you like and act out the story.
- You can read the story page first then act it out or ask a family member to be the narrator and read each page for you.
- You might like to organise a costume to wear.
- When performing, use a strong clear voice and think about how your character would sound.
- You could ask members of your family to be the different characters with you or be in the audience to view the performance.
Ask a member of your family to make a comment about your performance.
To use improvisation skills.
- Play Charades with your family (this is where you don’t speak while you are acting)
- Write on paper a list of actions you could act out. Here are some ideas – riding a bike, animals, movie characters, opening a present, rolling dice, going bowling, playing a guitar, using a yo-yo.
- Cut up each action and put them in a hat or container.
- Choose one from the hat and act it out for your audience. Your audience could be a member of your family.
- The audience then have to guess your action. Your family members might also like to have a go.
Which action did you enjoy acting out? Was it easy to guess?
To create a short play to perform.
- Create and act out a short play.
- To plan your play think of the characters, setting, a problem and a solution.
- Some ideas for your play could be – friendship, going into space in a rocket, going on a safari in the jungle, on a pirate ship to find treasure, eating at a restaurant.
- You could also wear costumes you have at home or dress ups.
- Ask members of your family to be the audience for your play or they may like to even join in.
Write a reflection about how your play went and what you enjoyed about the performance. Would you change anything?
