End of TAG Self Evaluation using Solo Taxonomy

Sadly TAG is finished for the year.

We pretended there was a huge NZ wide contest that we could win fantastic prices if our Arts production won.

Mrs Maw made up a brand new, never before heard, legend and we each had to think about the way we could use the Arts to retell it to other people.

We even practiced acting and dancing it out while 1 by 1 we told Mrs Maw what we would do in our Arts production.

After we each shared how we would do it and Mrs Maw put them in a table depending on how many different Arts we used in our retelling.

Illustrating one of our legends settings.

We looked at a variety of sea images and then used pastels to illustrate them.

Take a look at our work.

Local Dance Mentors pay us a visit !

Today we had Miss Maddie and Miss Anna, two local dance teachers come and help us dance out a legend.

First we watched one of the Matariki Legends on youtube. Next we warmed up our bodies.
Then we broke into two groups and learned our parts of the dance. After that we put it all together without the music. Finally we added the music and were amazing!

Look at the photos and follow the link to our YouTube  clip to see us in action.
