Hi everyone, there is three books around the class so in future you will find a specific section for each book. But seen as we haven't started reading them yet our first activity is all the same.
I'd like you to look at the cover of your book, the picture. What do you think this book might be about? What do you think might happen? Have you got any idea from the cover or title, who the characters might be?
When you've thought about and written these down, look at the back of the book. Is there a blurb? If so, give it a read. Does this tell you any more information? Has it given you a better idea of what the book might be about?
Some activities before you start reading the book tomorrow.
Can you find Africa on a map and explain where it is and what it is near.
Can you do a little bit of research about the "Timbavati Game Reserve".
George's Marvellous Medicine,
What do you think might be in the marvellous medicine?
What sort of book do you think this might be and do you think you might enjoy it?
What questions do you have about the book and front cover before you start reading?
