Arts Night

It was wonderful seeing you all at Arts Night last night!
For those of you who didn't have a chance to see our wonderful mural, here it is:

(please click the picture to enlarge)

It is quite long -- maybe 3 metres? It took us a month to paint the papers, cut out the grass, flowers, sun and birds. The children did ALL of the cutting and the gluing (except for the sun -- I glued that :)

Here is the poem that we wrote about our mural:

Birds on a Wire
They are sleepy

The line "They are sleepy" gives a perfect lead into the songs that we sang! Lullabies from around the world! Below are the words to the songs. (The morning class doesn't know these songs -- Ms. Marks teaches us music in the afternoon. Ms. Donovan teaches the morning class music and taught the morning class "The World is a Rainbow" -- which the afternoon class also knows).

I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Ms. Marks for teaching us these wonderful songs and to Sheila Philcox for playing the piano for us. We couldn't do it without either of you!
