Grade 5.1 2017-2018
Hello, our names are Sofia, Anyu & Niharika we are the music group from the Grade 5 exhibition 2018. In this blog post, we will tell you about our journey before and after our exhibition,so if you didn’t know by our title, we have been researching about music. Music is our passion. We enjoy to listen and learn about it.
Our goal was to see more musical activities among boys as most of them see music and singing as something girls enjoy, but we wanted to prove them wrong, and make them see that music is a really fun thing that many of them enjoy.
Surprisingly, many boys came to our action which we will tell you more in the next paragraph.
Our action was to make an international singing club,but mainly we also wanted to get boys to enjoy our singing club from G2〜G5. Once we had our first session, we saw a lot of boys show up. 8 boys and 26 girls came to our singing club. In singing club, we are going to teach the students good song and sing for Ms. Skirtik, but now, we chose an easy and good songs(fit with their grades), and we are teaching it. They like to sing that songs and they are enjoying our singing club.
Before Exhibition's workshop
After our work was done we had about 2 weeks before our exhibition. Our teachers told us to start thinking about our workshop. We first had an idea for a “Mindful Plane” but it ended up being to boring and to long and in the end I’m glad we didn’t choose to do it. But we did agree on 3 stations each contain facts and games for the visitors to enjoy.
But we didn’t do this all by ourselves, our mentor Mrs.Hayward helped us during our process in several ways. She suggested ways for us to improve, questions to form and gave us some feedback. She also was very kind and listened to what we had to share and was a great mentor!
When the real exhibition day came we were more than ready. Everything was set and ready to go. We had everything nicely organised and ready.The first sessions where great! All the students enjoyed our workshop., But in the afternoon we had a session. We had the blame stuck to us even after our teachers came to watch it again (where we were better) . But Wednesday was better since all the classes had fun (and we presented well!)
The journey of our exhibition was extraordinary, amazing and great! We all did a really great job and put lots of effort. We helped each other and gave feedbacks. We also read what other people had to say and made improvements. We made a good team, and we all had an amazing time!
