Book Week 3/4W

What a great time we had reading "The Peasant Prince" by Li Cunxin. It was based on a true story about a small boy in China, who at the age of 11 was chosen by the Government to attend a ballet school to train to be the best male ballet dancer for his country. Although it was a great honour for his family, it meant that he had to leave home and he didn't see his family for many years to come. Finally, he went to America where he continued to train and they were allowed to see him perform when he was an adult. We enjoyed making some kites that were in the story. This is a picture of our display board with the tissue kites we made. Buddy reading was fun to be involved in too!
