The Best Beak in Boonaroo Bay by Narelle Oliver

On most days Boonaroo Bay’s mangrove swamp is calm and quiet. This is not always so. One day the birds were quarrelling noisily about which of them had the best beak. Children will be delighted to find out how the wise old pelican restored peace and harmony to Boonaroo Bay.


This morning’s Well-Being task is: Time to YOGA up!

Watch the video and follow along:


Time to be creative!

You are a family member, a class member and a school community member.

  • What are your strengths?
  • What do you offer your family?
  • What do you bring to your class?
  • How can you positively contribute to our school community?

Put together a page that shows what is best about you and what you offer us. Here’s an example:


Using any or all of the following equipment, show us what you know about maths.

  • Dice
  • Ruler/tape measure
  • Coins
  • Scales
  • Clock/timer
  • Measuring cups/spoons (cooking equipment)

An idea to help you get started:

Cereal Maths

  • Draw the shapes you find in your pantry from any box of cereal.
  • Measure all sides using informal or formal measurements.
  • Carefully undo the box to find the net. What other shapes do you see?
  • Weigh the box. How much does it weigh once you take out a bowl for breakfast?

Other curriculum:

Science: Chemical Sciences

What do you know about chemical reactions?

Are you ready for a BIG BANG?

Open the link and watch the experiment:

This experiment uses everyday products that you can find in your pantry. Follow the instructions to complete the experiment.


The project above is a DEMONSTRATION. To make it a true experiment, you can try to answer these questions:

  • Will different temperature water affect how fast the bag inflates?
  • What amount of baking soda creates the best reaction?
  • Which size bag creates the fastest pop?
