WK. 4: Performances
Week 1 – In the first week we made our own pieces using all sorts of extra-curricular activity ideas for the ‘Involve` performance such as Dance, Cake My Day, Duke Of Edinburgh, Spelling Bee, Fitness Exercises, Hockey and many more. In our group (me, Beth, Alex, and Michael) we did the Spelling Bee and Fitness Exercise. We started off by doing a Spelling Bee with Beth being the teacher and me, Alex and Joyce being the students who had to spell some words. Alex put her hand up first to answer and did so incorrectly, I tried to correct her and failed to do so which then lead onto Michael spelling the words correctly. One of the words was fitness where we all jumped into the fitness exercise with the song ‘Eric Prydez - Call on me` playing and all of us doing different exercises such as star jumps, press ups, stretches and hip twists.
We also did some T.I.E (Theatre in Education) work whilst miss was off sick
T.I.E is a general term that includes all the interactive theatre practices that help aid the educational process. The main characteristics of a T.I.E performance are developing original scripts, using the performance of a play as a springboard for interacting with an audience and discussing important topics or themes or activities used to support classroom curriculum.
