As the River Flows by Year Four for Mrs Stewart

In Term Three, I lent the Year Fours the picture book A River written and illustrated by Marc Martin for their Inquiry unit about water. I hoped Marc’s visually stunning and thought provoking book about a river’s journey would inspire them…and it certainly did!

What happened was a wonderful collaboration between the students in 4G, 4VT and 4W, their creative teachers and our fabulous Art teacher, Yvonne to create their own book as a gift for our principal, Mrs Stewart as she leaves our school. Mrs Stewart loves metaphors and the Year Fours have used the river to beautifully capture Mrs Stewart’s journey at St Martin’s in their book As the River Flows.
