Class 2 have been furthering their literacy and geography skills with a Main Lesson centered around Twiggy the Cave bird. As Twiggy's siblings go out into the world and meet other birds, they learn a lot about them and bring the stories back to Twiggy in the cave. Twiggy is still very small and too fragile to leave the nest, so the stories nourish her and create beautiful pictures in her mind. They are also learning the local geography of Sydney and our own surrounds as the birds travel across our landscapes from Botany Bay to Palm Beach and west towards Parramatta. The children have been writing longer sentences, drawing beautifully and practicing their word families alongside this main lesson.
