Year 5 has started reading ‘The Little Wave’ by Pip Harry during Library time. It is a great book for stepping inside the lives of the Year 5 characters and considering the perspectives that others might have. The book links to the IB learner profile of being Principled; “taking responsibility for our actions and their consequences”.  To introduce the lesson, students participated in a Thinking Routine called Think-Puzzle-Explore; where they looked at a photograph of a small country town near Dubbo, and another photograph of Manly Beach. The boys were then led through the process of identify what they could see and exploring further ideas about the images. When the book was being read, the boys were asked to draw or made dot points of images or concepts that struck them about each of the characters in the story. ‘The Little Wave’ is broken up into chapters that focus on each of the three characters; making this process easier to manage. It has been great to see what the boys have come up with.
