Thank you so much for helping us with our bushranger questions and because you did so well we have decided to ask for another favour!
Go to the LITERACY page and read your child’s narrative. Can you then give us an advice sandwich by leaving a comment. Tell us two things we did well (bread), followed by an area we could improve on (cheese)!
Thanks for taking the time to help us once again,
This week we have turned the tables and have set some Home Learning of your own! That’s right, your child is going to be on your back until you have completed your task, so get cracking!
Seriously though, we would love you to help us with our Inquiry topic titled, ‘Heroes or Villains?’ We have some questions we thought you could help us to answer about bushrangers. We thought this would be a good way to connect you with what we are doing in the classroom. Therefore your task is as follows:
1. Find your child’s question in the list below
2. Answer this question by posting a comment on this page (your child can show you what to do!)
3. You may need to do a little research for some of these questions, but they’re not too hard we promise!!!
