A group of enthusiastic grade 2 and 3 girls are joining Mrs Mac on an exploration of the historical novel The Courage of Sarah Noble. The group are simulating the 1707 travels of eight-year-old Sarah as she journeys into the wilderness with her pioneering father to build a new home for their large family. Moving through the school grounds, the girls have spent a “night” in the forest and visited a settlement (at the primary playground). Garbed in their cloaks — a powerful symbol and source of Sarah’s courage — they travelled to a cave (the primary wing exit) and will soon reach Sarah’s new homestead (at the willow tree). From there, the Adventure will continue!
We are having such fun with this novel!
