There were four stand-out Winners, who, upon looking at it, I realised put themselves in contention for a win with all THREE of their homework tasks.
Those amazingly, wonderful, hard-working students who chose to use their time to ensure their tasks were completed to a high standard and in a creative way are:
Moya produced a great poster on the importance of ANZAC Day, a presentation on the ANZAC Day Poppy and an effective piece of art and a wordle representing the soldiers in WW1. Each of her tasks showed extra thought and focus to take it to a high level.
Hannah produced a creative video on the importance of ANZAC Day, a high quality trench periscope and survival kit which showed a great amount of effort, and her piece of art published on canvas with her wordle showed great creativity.
Micah spent a lot of time learning about what happened at Gallipoli and shared it with his audience whilst also expressing his feelings throughout. His survival kit and trench periscope showed a great understanding of what the soldiers needed. His piece of art was presented in a creative way and he shared his thoughts with his audience also. He also created a wordle to go with it.
Paige's presentation on the important of ANZAC Day showed great research and understanding. Her letter included really descriptive language and was presented effectively (with an awesome postage stamp). Her art piece had some interactive sections which hooked the audience and her wordle included a lot of inspiring words.
I then chose two single pieces of work that also come out winners. Those were:
Jade's Art Piece and Wordle
Jade created beautiful art which was a wreath with individual hand-made leaves in different shades of green with a beautiful message and her wordles were full of meaning.
Eric's poem titled "Shall the Trumpet Say" was full of meaning and had great poetic devices. For a taster, here is his last few lines:
We loved and gave and played and now all we seek
is redemption by faith you have gained,
faith that we are not forgotten but have become inspiration,
Through the words the trumpet shall speak.
Well done to you all - I absolutely loved going through your tasks and found them moving and powerful. All of you in class should be proud of what you produced.
Here are a few thoughts to remind you of why you put in the effort to complete your work to a high standard...
