Year 5 “In The Beginning” Illustrations

Year 5 recently completed an activity to illustrate a line of text from a song called “In the Beginning” by Andrew Chinn. The song is about Genesis 1 (creation). Mr Franklin shared the artwork that was submitted by students with Andrew and he wrote them back a lovely email:

Dear Year 5

My mate Mr Franklin shared your art work with me this afternoon, based on the Creation story and my song “In The Beginning”.

Have to tell you that I loved it! What I loved was the different skills you each had. Some of you, like Lucas, Ella, Jemma, Thomas, Anne J (to name just a few- I could go on) are obviously artists but some of you had great computer skills, and even the way some of you just arranged words to form a shape “Let There Be Light”. So, I’m honoured by your beautiful work and love it so much I’ve asked Mr Franklin if we can feature it on our new website, the Butterfly House. That way schools around Australia and New Zealand will see your work.

Well done and thanks!
