What's happening this term?

Literacy lights have been turned on to INQUIRY this week. 

GET IT
SORT IT
USE IT


This week we began with GET IT. We started by listening to and watched THE BAND PLAYED WALTZING MATILDA on U- TUBE and read some poems and discussed our response.


Next step: We looked at what we know and what we want to find out. There were LOTS of questions!!!

We looked at the photos to help us generate questions for our inquiry.


Connor- What the donkey's name? What did it do? Why did they need a donkey? Is this donkey famous? Why?


How many people died? How many were wounded? How many people were in a unit?

Where did they land? How did they unload? How did they get there? How did they feel when they arrived?

How long did it take to get there? How did they get there? How many countries were there?

How old were they when they went to war? Did they have to go?

How were they evacuated?  What did they do with the wounded and the dead?


What was life like for the soldiers? What did they eat? Where did they sleep? Did it take long to dig the trenches? How deep was the trenches?   Did they have grenades? Mines? What kind of guns did they have?  Could the enemy shoot them at any time?



Do you have any questions or
 answers you would like to add?
