In these photos we are planning with chalk, and painting. We got our inspiration from the many beautiful images of poppies that we found on-line.
In some of the photos we are moving around the room and talking to each other about our art.
We have displayed the paintings in the foyer to our school and to our community library. If you live in Twizel, please come and see them. We are proud of our art-work.
Homework this week is to talk about ANZAC Day and the meaning of it with our adults, and also to do another piece of poppy art. Some are already done and are on display with our class paintings.
We will continue with our study of ANZAC Day for the next couple of weeks. One of the things we talked about today was how special it is to live in New Zealand, a country at peace, and in the beautiful Mackenzie basin.
Lots of us are going to the ANZAC Service tomorrow morning. We will be thinking about the ANZAC Service in Gallipoli too. We learned about that special event today. We love how the Internet can bring the world in history, and the world today, into our classroom.
P.S. Welcome to Room 4 Mackenzie and Lachie. We hope you enjoy your time in the Room 4 Learning Team.
