NIPS XI by Ruth Starke is the title of the text we are reading in Reading Groups. It is a great story about about a boy called Lan who forms a cricket team to play at Multicultural Day at his school. It follows his adventures as he recruits the players, finds a coach, learns the rules and starts to play the game of cricket.

Now we are using “Circle of Viewpoints” to help us think about how different characters in the story see winning. Its quite interesting to talk about how different people have a range of ideas on what winning is.
