1J light up the stage

friday 14th may 2021 Science explorations of light and sound formed the foundation of Class 1J's performance at the Junior School Assembly today. Through dance and song the class explored what light is, where it is found, what's it's source and how shadows form. For some students dancing with torches was the highlight of the performance: "My favourite bit of the show was dancing with the torches. We got to wave them in the sky. I don't have my own torch at home." said Audrey, 1J student For others being part of a marching band, playing their own, hand made instruments was a highlight. "We go to wear hats." said Zac. "Zander and I made guitars," said Kingsley, "I decided to make a guitar because you can pluck the strings. I also know the notes on a guitar because I play the violin." Mrs Lisa Joiner, teacher of 1J, expressed how proud she was of her students, "They worked so hard to prepare for the parent assembly. In addition to exploring light, the class had investigated sound and how vibration causes sound. As a class we investigated the different ways instruments work and each student made their own instrument, thoughtfully choosing their materials for construction and playing them on stage."
