Silhouette Dancing

November 30, 2011 5 comments

Hi Everyone,

Today, Ms.Jane showed us a silhouette dance by a few Year 6s last year. I was quite interested in this and did a little research on this but I didn’t find out much and I also didn’t find the name for the type of dance (if anyone finds out, can they please comment and tell me?).

I did find out about 1 professional group called Pilobolus who is famous for this. They have won some awards and have performed for shows.

Here are a few of their performances:

If you were in 4BM, you might remember Mr.Bob showing us this. It’s also my favourite one that Pilobolus did.

Here’s a trailer to show called ‘Shadow Land’ but they got Pilobolus to do the shadows.

Bidauto hired Pilobolus to do a commercial for them.

I hope you like the videos! Please comment and tell me what you think!

What did you learn?

We were very lucky that Ping-Ko, Gordon, Bim and Beaux were able to come and talk to us about their direct experiences of the flooding in Thailand. They shared photos and videos of the places they had been and they told us stories of what they had seen. They also gave us their perspectives on what is going on and some information about how and why the situation has become so bad.

Make a comment to share the most important or interesting thing you learned from the Year 12 students.

Here are the videos they showed us:

 

Well… really… have you?

Watch the slideshow of your organization poster designs by clicking the image.

The How we organize ourselves unit was all about these things:

  • Becoming more independent
  • Getting better at doing things for yourself
  • Earning the trust of adults in your life
  • Growing as a person
  • Achieving success every day
  • Using your time well

So, it’s been a couple of months now… how are you doing? Are you still doing some of the things you started or have you been forgetting? Would you be able to survive on your own if your parents/maids/older brothers and sisters left you alone for a week?

Research for your Independent Inquiry

November 23, 2011 1 comment

Try to get as much information as you can to help you answer your questions. Look hard for information that is really relevant to your questions and not just “kind of” relevant.

Look closely at the information to see what details there are in the text that can help you answer your questions, point you in a different direction or even make you ask new questions.

Look closely at the information to see the names of individuals, groups or places that you could get more information from. This could be someone’s name, the name of an organization, a company name, a website or anything else that you could use to do a new search.

Don’t be afraid to speak to people in order to find out information. This could be people in the school or even people outside the school. You could contact people by email, make phone calls or do Skype interviews. Make sure you are clear about what information you need from them and then ask the questions that help you get that information.
