Justice & Dignity from Matilda

May30

“Just because you find that life’s not fair it
Doesn’t mean that you just have to grin and bear it
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
Nothing will change

Even if you’re little, you can do a lot, you
Mustn’t let a little thing like, ‘little’ stop you
If you sit around and let them get on top,
You might as well be saying
You think that it’s okay
And that’s not right!
And if not… that’s not right
You need to put it right” 

Matilda in the Roald Dahl

*We are learning about justice and dignity in our Religion Education lessons. What does the quote mean to you?

Lest We Forget

My Mother's Eyes 2, Mark Wilson

To commemorate ANZAC Day we did a few activities to help us learn. On Friday, we read the story ‘My Mother’s Eyes’ by Mark Wilson. After reading the story we learnt about the rations the soldiers were given for their survival while in the trenches. The students made poppies, and also made some watercolour pieces of art inspired by the illustrations in the story. We also got to  read and follow the recipe to make ANZAC biscuits. Here are a few photos to show some of our work.

Remembrance Day Poem

poppy1 We have been learning about different types of poetry in our writing classes.   Here is a very special poem written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae who was a Canadian poet, physician, author, artist and soldier during World War I. He was born in Guelph, Ontario and died in France in 1918. What do you think about when you read this poem? How does it make you feel? Is this a structured poem or free verse?
