Hello to everyone from Paris France .Paris is a beautiful city with lots of history and beautiful art works. I am having a lovely time even though it is little bit chilly. Life here is very different to Melbourne, the cars drive on the other side of the road, there are lots of motorbikes and there does not seem to be too many road rules- you have to be very careful crossing the road. I visited this very famous monument today. It is called The Arc de Triomphe and it was built in 1836. Napoleon was the Emperor and had it built to celebrate his victory in battles.
Did you know there is another Paris ,not in France?
Who can tell me where there is another Paris?
We have spent a lot of time walking in Paris and to get to places you need to cross lots of bridges. The river that runs through Paris is called the Seine. The buildings are quite different to those in Blackburn, some even look like castles!
what is different in the shape of the building?
We went to a beautiful church today St Chapelle which was built in the 12th century. It has these amazing stained glass windows. The windows tell the stories from the Bible. They used them for people who could not read. The first window tells the creation story.
Today is our last day in Paris, we are off to Spain today. Hope you are having a lovely time with Mrs Killkenny.
Part of our Inquiry for this term has involved us finding out about our wonderful country Australia . Our artists can share historical stories through art. Sydney Nolan is the first Australian artist we have studied and we enjoyed learning about Ned Kelly through his art.
We hope you enjoy our attempts to tell Ned’s story.
