During Term 2 our class worked writing a picture book based around the NZ Transport Feet First competition of being safe around roads. As we had cycle safety during this term, we decided to base our stories around being safe when riding.
We had to write a narrative picture book story making sure that biking and cycling was a part of the story.
We also conducted a survey during our maths time to find out about picture books and illustrations. We had to learn about illustrations, and we had an expert from the Rotorua Library come and talk to us. We then practised some techniques which we then had to apply to create our own illustrations for our story.
We then had to put our story and illustrations together into a digital format. Finally, to make it interactive, we added links to quizzes and other sites so you can learn more about being safe on bikes.
While we didn't win, our school received a 'highly commended' certificate for our Digital Picture Books.
