Here is another one of fantastic films and stories created by our Year 5/6 students. Fadila wrote this story and explored the emotions of starting a new school. Fadila began st Debney Meadows in 2012 so her story is one of experience. Fadila’s classmates helped her recreate the story and bring it to life in film. The girls were the actors, whilst the boys were the film production team. Fadila is narrating.
At Debney Meadows PS we are lucky to enjoy the extra support for learning by The Song Room. Our teacher is Zoe, and she works with all of our students once a week. Our students explore themes around identity and storytelling. They use their imaginations, share ideas, collaborate on song writing, sing, move and build confidence in the process.
Our Year P and 1/2 students have been using songs to think about ways they can deal with new situations, new people and being part of a group – a community. They are performing Yellow Bird on Wednesday 2nd November at Melbourne Town Hall as part of the Carnavale performance. As principal, this will be my first performance that I have the pleasure to watch. I can’t wait 🙂
Our 3/4s have had fun looking at the characters and stories in fairytales and fables and messages of dealing with challenging situations.
The 5/6 students have explored emotions through rap and blues and have worked together to create their own raps.
