Australia Year is coming to an end. The school term (and year) finishes on Friday, so this is a good point to find out what we most enjoyed about this special year. To finish our blog we will be asking lots of people what they thought the highlights were. We have started with views from the blog group.
“The event I have most enjoyed through Australia Year is when Frances Firebrace came in and did lots of Aboriginal-type paintings with KS2. We had to pair up and were only allowed to use red, yellow, blue and black paints, but that made it more exciting!” Mollie
“My highlight of Australia year was when we made the Australian Poles for the end of Year 6 art. I enjoyed this activity because we all got to be together and I really like calving wood. I wrote R+E+C=BFF. I did get a big cut in my hand but I do have a bit of me left behind (my blood).” Robyn
“My favourite thing about Australia year is when we did our aboriginal poles with Chris Holland (The Didgeridoo man!) I am looking forward to the signing of the t-shirts this Friday.” Emily
“I haven’t got a favourite. I just Liked the whole year round and am glad I was a part of it. But I can’t wait till Friday!” Sophie
“I think that the highlight of Australia year has got to be the year 6 Totem poles but Australia day comes close. I know that almost everybody in Holbrook loved Australia day including me because of it’s extremely fun activities.” Matthew P
