This term we will be reading the books 'Stone Age Boy' by Mark Warner and 'Rain Player' by David Wisniewski.
'Stone Age Boy' is a fictional story about a little boy who is walking along when he trips, stumbles and falls... into the Stone Age!
'Rain Player' is a book based on Ancient Mayan belief that the future cannot be changed. This boy, Pik, must defeat the Rain God in a ball game to keep a disaster from occurring.
Both books are stimulating and will inspire all children's writing.
