THIS IS MY BACKYARD - HIIROLA - class 0-1-2-3-4-5-6
THIS IS ME - painting

At the end of the project TÄMÄ ON MINUN TAKAPIHANI - THIS IS MY BACKYARD we planned a final activity with all children in Hiirola and in Rämälä.
The school in Hiirola will be closed at the end of the school year 2013-2014. The children will move to the school in Rämälä. Both schools are organizing visits to introduce the children to each other and to get an impression of the new school for the children in Hiirola.

All children painting THIS IS ME

In both schools we organized a painting session with all children to make a postcard which will be send to the other school. The subject is: THIS IS ME as an introduction and invitation to join the future together.

By painting the person as tall as the paper and to fix the hands somewhere in the middle it is possible to arrange the whole series together in one line.
