STARS is the theme for the 2019 show. Each and every one of the 5,500 performers is a star!
They each have their moment to shine. They each take to the stage so proudly to demonstrate their talents, their beliefs and their identity. Their faces light up with pride and achievement. We celebrate their uniqueness in the universe.
It’s the 80th anniversary of one of the world’s most loved films, The Wizard of Oz. In celebration, your class can follow their own ‘yellow brick road’ through the curriculum.
Take a journey of learning, discovery and hope as we all celebrate The Wizard of Oz.
This unit of work has been created by Kaelene Neville, Principal, Murringo Public School, in consultation with The Arts Unit, to support curriculum delivery in conjunction with the Schools Spectacular 2019.
Duration: 6 weeks (approximately 30 hours)
In this unit of work, students will take part in integrated activities from across the English, mathematics, creative arts, science, technologies, HSIE and PDHPE syllabi. The activities can be used individually, but because they flow from one to the other, The Wizard of Oz is ideally taught as an entire unit.
The unit culminates by attending the Friday matinee performance of Schools Spectacular 2019. We recommend organising an excursion to see the show if possible. However, the unit can be taught without doing this and classes could watch the televised show when it becomes available.
