Cinderella Opera

Mrs Hall organised a whole school trip to the Arts Centre in Melbourne to see an opera performance of Cinderella.

We read lots of different versions of Cinderella, and made different outfits for her and the prince to wear when working, dancing at the ball and getting married.

Before we went Mrs Radcliffe played some of the music from the opera for the Preps on the piano. 2G were visited by Penny and Peter who came and demonstrated some of the different musical instruments that might be in the orchestra.

On the day we all went up on the bus to the Arts Centre. We had our lunch outside then had a look at the arts display before sitting in the audience with another school for the opera. It was very loud and they sang in French.

Moving Machines

2G finished off our integrated topic by using all the knowledge we’ve gathered this term to create some machines with moving parts using Lego Technic, cogs, wheels, pulleys and gears.
