Welcome back to Term 2 and we had three speakers organised with their book talk, word of the moment and inspire us video all ready to share.
First of all we heard about the book called Nocturne by Christine Johnson. This is the second book in a series. Our speaker told us that this book had been given to her because she had enjoyed reading the Twilight series. This book is from the same genre. We were able to listen to a small excerpt which left us wondering about the twists in the story. The main character, Claire, is a werewolf and we were told that part of this story is about Claire’s secret identity being discovered. Romance, action and friendship conflicts are also part of the plot of this novel. Quite a few of the class feel that they would like to read this story after listening to this book talk.
Next up we were given a new word of the moment to add the the growing collection on our display board. This week’s word was geometry and it was chosen because our class had been working with area and perimeter just before the end of first term. It is a noun and has 4 syllables.
Last was our video. This week our speaker chose to find a video that was related to a newspaper article he had seen. Dave Jacka,a former Paralympian is flying solo around Australia and will be the first quadriplegic to do this when he has finished the trip. You can find out more on the website that is charting his journey. Take a look at the video our speaker chose to share.
