Grade 3SC here is all the information we have gathered about our dance unit so far. Use it to help you in creating your dances for final performance. Remember to include all the elements we agreed on for your peer assessment. Your final performance will be on Wednesday 6th February.
Grade 3 have begun 2013 with a Movement Composition unit called "So You Think You Can Dance?" Students will work together to choreograph a 60 second dance in a particular style which includes 4 different types of synchronization. This week we learnt about Hip Hop, Jive and Contemporary dance styles. We listened to the music for speed and rhythm and tried to move our bodies in the same way.
We drew Music Maps to help us understand the speed, flow and rhythm of the music. We then used our maps to help us move and dance to the music.
As a summative assessment for our unit on Invasion Games we played a game of Ultimate Speedball. This game combines a lot of different skills from invasion games like Basketball, Soccer, Handball, Australian Rules, Gaelic Football, American Football and Rugby.
Watch our game below and see how you think we did in finding space, moving the ball quickly and transitioning between attack and defense.
Grade 3 have started their new unit on Ball Games. We will be looking at lots of different ball games in the coming weeks and working out ways we can classify them into different categories. We started the unit with basketball & soccer.
In Grade 3 we looked at the PYP Learner Profile and how this applied to Physical Education. We chose which traits we thought applied to us, and which traits we would like to improve on this year.
You can look at it by clicking on the link below. Which one are you?
