World Book Day

Our book focus in Class was Journey by Aaron Becker. This was a picture book with no text in but we found the story very interesting and enjoyable! After sharing the book we used the illustrations to write some descriptions of what was happening at that point of the story. The girl in the story visited many places in the world through her imagination, we used a map to pinpoint these landmarks and calculated the distance the girl had travelled, this was a challenge but we really enjoyed trying to figure it out! In the afternoon we had a fun STEM activity. The girl draws herself a hot air balloon to travel in. So we learnt about how hot air balloons fly and then tried to design and make our own hot air balloons with tissue paper. We tested each group’s one with a hair dryer to give the hot air. Not many survived but we had fun and discussed what we would do next time! Class 4 thoroughly enjoyed our world book day and can’t wait to use more picture books in their learning 🙂
