January's Reading Gladiator Text: Ossiri by Richard O'Neill and Katharine Quarmb
In January our Reading Gladiator text was called Ossiri. Ossiri is a Traveller girl who has a dream of becoming a musician. Ossiri’s family recycle everything and she decides to create her own musical instrument from a willow branch and lots of recycled objects. She plays it enthusiastically, but it sounds terrible! Ignoring warnings not to awaken the ogre in the hills, Ossiri goes there to practise playing her instrument.
We used recycled materials to make our own musical instruments and ogre's. Have a look at our creations.
