Persuade me!

Last week we read the hilarious book “Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus!” We love this outrageously crazy book. It gave us plenty of inspiration for our writing, trying to persuade our audience to let us drive something.
My questions for you:
– What were some of the persuasive techniques the pigeon used?
– How do you know this book is fiction?
– How would you persuade your mum or dad to let you drive a bus?

We’re going to the zoo

Today the students from Prep to grade 2 went on an excursion to the Melbourne Zoo.
We took our friend Gudiya from India on our trip. Here Miinee is holding her on the bus ride to Melbourne.

First stop… The Gorillas!! Can you see how closely we are studying them?!


Can you see what animal is in this leafy habitat?

Guess what Prep/1F and Gudiya are about to go and see???
We loved the butterfly enclosure. What kind of habitat do they live in? Do you know why?


How many elephants can you see over here? Don’t forget the baby elephants!


Feeding our hungry bellies. But we just wanted to keep going. So many animals to see!

Do you know which animal is in this enclosure?

Roan enjoyed seeing the lions who were resting in the long grass.

These giraffes were definitely a highlight. We couldn’t believe how tall they were!

Gudiya had a fantastic day at the zoo with Prep/1F. We have got lots of new knowledge and experiences to discuss back at school now.

What do you think?

Here Prep/1F were given a picture to look at. They had to do a brainstorm to share their thoughts on the image.
