Mr. Russell’s 3rd Class 2023/2024 were learning about the terrible events of September 11, 2001 in the USA, when the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre were destroyed in an awful attack. Through reading, writing and art, the boys marked the anniversary of the tragedy. They watched actual news bulletins broadcast on TV from the day, read about what happened, and saw the front pages of newspapers as they told the world about the horrific news. The boys also read the novel “Eleven” by American author Tom Rogers about a boy who turned 11 years old on 9/11.
The class made some stunning tribute paintings, showing the outlines of the two giant towers. Check out the finished pieces in the gallery below, along with some photos featuring the boys at work:
