The children have continued to paint Australian animals onto the mural; below are some photos showing out progress
Today, Cindy, Louise, Darlene and the art classes at the respective schools in China and Australia linked up for the second time. Heather Lu assisted kindly with translations. Students shared more details and images of animals from their country and this time of traditional Australian art work. This sharing is leading towards the commencement of the joint mural. We will be sorting out the MSLYNC captions so they can be seen in China before the next link up as this helps with understanding for the students. You can see images from today in the Gallery below.
What did the kids at Canadian Lead think?
William h: My favourite part is making the animals to show the Chinese children.
Jaxon: I really liked drawing on the mural I hope the Chinese students like our pictures.
Bella: I like making the animal mask I’m excited to share them.
Kent: I liked getting pictures from Google, I have been writing about a snake and I am almost ready to share it with the Chinese students.
Jai: I like the pictures that they Chinese children have shown us.
It was fantastic to finally link the two art classes! Students from China introduced themselves and shareed some of the wonderful Chinese art techniques with us. We leant some lessons from our first link up. We were able to have every child speak which was great. Canadian Lead students showed images of Australian animals and the crocodiles got a shocked reaction in China! The agreed theme was animals.
Next link is in a fortnight… thankyou for the negotiations and effort that has gone into making this possible at the two schools.
