“Luther and the Cloud Makers”by Kylie Newburn and illustrated by Sarah Nelisiwe Anderson is a beautifully written and illustrated picture book that is not only a great book to share with younger children but is a perfect example of a resource to support student inquiry into Sharing the Planet.
Read an in-depth review by the Picture Book Nook.
This book will be one I recommending for the Year 2 Sharing the Planet unit.

THE TERRIBLE PLOP
Mrs Anderson and Mrs Moore had fun learning how to use WORDLE. They made a WORDLE using the rhyming words in the shortlsited book The Terrible Plop!
Have a go making one yourself using WORDLE and one of the shortlisted books!!!
(Mrs Moore will give you a chocolate freddo if she thinks it is better than hers!
Don’t forget to sign up for MS Readathon – reading all through June.

The current unit of inquiry is called Let’s Celebrate.
People recognise important events through celebration and traditions.

They created a poster or a model and spoke about what they learned.
