As it is our school concert this week , we have not had a traditional Book Week. But we have been looking at some of the shortlists picture books and doing a range of interesting activities to reflect on the shortlisted books.
Some books we have read include
- Captain James Cook
- Big Red Kangaroo
- The Treasure Box
Below are some activities we did on each book.
Jandamarra: – We looked at Indigenous Australian Dreamtime stories.
The Treasure Box – We reflected on words that describe special treasure, feelings and emotions related to war through creating newspaper collage.
Big Red Kangaroo – We use the images from this text to reflect on other Australian animals by writing a free verse poem.
