Our 'Chapter Chat' novel The Terrible Two inspired many of the students to make their own dioramas, depicting a scene in the book, or a place that is important to them.
Welcome to Yawnee Valley where the story took place. When the students arrived at school, a prankster had put the principal's car on the steps, blocking the way in.
The prankster held a birthday party for a 'fake' student and got everyone to believe he was real. The other students bought food and presents.
When the students had to show their dioramas to the class, the prankster had switched one. The new box contained a thousand crickets which escaped, causing chaos in the classroom. The last diorama shows a place special to Te Kirianu and her whanau.
