We are a year five class learning in Bowen in sunny North Queensland, Australia. Our town is famous for its yummy mangoes which we eat in the summer months and our beautiful beaches. Bowen is just north of Airlie Beach and approximately 40km from the Great Barrier Reef. Fishing is very popular here! Bowen has its very own Fishing Classic which runs in September each year. Farming is very big in Bowen and we grow tomoatoes, capsicums, beans, pumpkins, chillis, eggplants, watermelons, corn and much more. Mining plays a huge part in our community also as many of our parents work at the local coal mines, railway and coal port.
Our 5SK blog has now been running for almost 3 years and houses all of our class resources, links and student work. This will be the 2nd GRA for Mrs Scharf and the first for the current 5SK students. We are all super excited to read Fish in a Tree.
