Picture on a wall – level 2

14-06-2016 15:00

Banksy, the British street artist, created a new piece of art on the side of a school in England. On the side of a classroom, he painted a child running with a stick and chasing a burning tyre. He also left a letter expressing thanks to the students for naming a house in the school after him and telling them that they should add to his art. He though that their teachers would allow this.

The teachers are not going to allow the students to paint on the wall, but they are going to preserve and protect the artwork.

Difficult words: stick (a little piece of wood), express (tell), preserve (save).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
