Here’s what the efforts of a whole Grade Six class look like. A magnificent display of skill, paying attention and following instructions! Well done Fairview Students!
Each year in Fairview, grade three students get to paint their own banner to decorate the lamp posts in town. This year the theme was the history of the Peace River. Here are some of the creations the kids came up with. They are just finished. The paint isn’t even dry.
The fur trade played a huge role in developing and settling the Peace Country. Here you see a beaver.
The Dunvegan Bridge is a bright suspension bridge spanning the Peace River Valley. It was built in 1960, which seems like ancient history to a third grader.
The Dunne-za were the first people to discover the wonders of the Peace Country. The kids can identify with the tepees because they can visit modern reproductions at Dunvegan Provincial Historic Park.
It seems like a lot to ask a grade six class to draw not only a person but a person playing a musical instrument! However, you can see this class carried it off with impressive skill.
Drawing marbles worked so well with the adult classes, we did it with Grade Fives as well. It was our great pleasure to have the students use pastels donated by a retired teacher and proponent of fine arts lessons for kids.
The Grade Four Class did an amazing job of their fish sketches. They worked very hard and it paid off!
