Clay Work – Pennies for Hitler

Room 8 is reading Pennies for Hitler by Jackie French. As part of our learning we had to choose a critical moment.From one section of the book. My group chose the moment when Aunt Miriam and Georg arrived at the library to say goodbye to Mrs Huntley before he had to leave on a boat. We created this scene in clay and our rationale for this choice was that when the library had been crushed we feel like he would have been devastated by the fact that his favorite place to go to was turned into rubble. The library signified his happiness…a place of comfort, so it would feel like another piece of his life was destroyed.
