Level 5 and 6 students have been learning about Drama this term. We have worked collaboratively in drama groups to create an original/pre-written script that will be performed at the end of the term.
We have created anchor charts and discussed what we think is important in a drama performance. Some of the points include: tone, movement, incorporating appropriate characteristics in our performance and keeping the audience engaged.
Students have a great deal of voice and choice in this unit – they can choose their characters, plot and how they present their final performance to the class. Students can incorporate their strengths into the performance and are encouraged to support all members of their group.
We reflect on our progress at the end of each lesson and give each other feedback on how we can continue to improve our performances each week.
For Level 5 and 6 students – here is the assessment rubric for this unit to refer to each week: Level 5 and 6 Drama Unit. Students/groups are also encouraged to send regular feedback, questions and comments through Showbie to document new ideas.
I have been really impressed with the original ideas from groups and their ability to refine their ideas through listening to constructive feedback. Looking forward to seeing the final performances!

We love celebrating Music Count Us In at Rangeview! In previous years, the Junior Choir, Senior Choir and Band have performed on Celebration Day as the whole of Rangeview sing the song. This year, Celebration Day will take place on Thursday 3 November at 12.30pm in the school hall. We will gather together and perform the song together along with thousands of students(primary and secondary aged) from around Australia. We get the live feed going and can see other students from Australia perform it at the same time as us!
This year, the Music Count Us In song is called ‘Let It Play’. Here is the link to the song:
2016 Program Song
For students and families that are interested about what Music Count Us In is about: This is a free initiative for all schools to take part in. It brings all schools, students, staff and wider community together to celebrate music and music education in Australia. As music is a universal language that everyone can be a part of, it’s great to see and hear other schools getting involved in such an inclusive annual event.
Have a listen to the song and write a comment at the bottom of the blog. I’d love to hear how you feel about the song – Do you like the lyrics? What instruments can you hear? What do you think the song is about? Happy listening Rangeview students! I look forward to seeing your comments.
