A fantastic book This book is full of beautiful imagery describing the hawk and nature I loved the important messages that were portrayed in the book kindness friendships and love How is the story told The story is told as a narrative in first person where a boy and girl called Iona Callum find a hawk The boy tracks the flight off the bird when he travels between Africa and Scotland The book has a lot italics which grips the reader into the book The paragraphs with the italics are only written when describing the actions of the bird The book is also full of a variety of speech and adjectives are used effectively to describe land scapes nature and the hawk The book also has paragraphs that are written in the format of letter and email writing and diary or log These formats describe the main event of when the main character communicates with a girl from Africa to look out for the Sky hawk and when he tracks the hawk travelling between Africa and Scotland Does the novel belong to a particular genre The novel is written as a fiction genre The book is full of continuous themes linking to nature the hawk landscapes bird nest deserts and mountains Can you see in patterns in the ideas in the book In the novel there was a continuous pattern of love and friendship Callum developed a loving and caring friendship with Iona and Jeneba There is also patterns of kindness and care Callum continues to care and look after the bird and he cares for his family and friends The book has a pattern that shows up twice the important pattern is the flight of the sky hawk travelling between Scotland and Africa The pattern continues from this idea where Callum tracks the shy hawk using a diary log to see where the hawk is And to see how far she travels and the locations she travels over between Africa and Scotland Near the end of the book there is a continuous format writing letters and emails are sent continuously between Jeneba and Callum Iona s heart shaped locket appears a couple of times in the book It appeared when Iona showed Callum and when Iona s mum gave it to Callum after Iona died Therefore I thought that the locket shaped heart may symbolise the importance of love For Callum I think the locket symbolised his loving friend ship with Iona The locket to Iona symbolised her cut of love with her mother the locket was there as a symbol for her to remember cherish and love her mother The book had a few patterns of pain and sadness when the bird hurt her foot when Iona got ill and passed away and when Jeneba was ill and hurt her leg Therefore I think this gives the reader an important message that life is not always happy and joyful but there can be moments of pain and sadness The reader may then understand that sometimes pain and sadness can be sorted out and resolved but sometimes it can leave people with despair For example the main characters may have felt loss of hope when the bird cut her leg they may have been worried and lost hope that the hawk would not be able to look after her eggs Can you see patterns in the language In the novel Gill Lewis has given the reader clues about what the story will be about introducing one of the main characters the girl Iona and it also introduces the dark rivers and forests This landscape is introduced to give the reader an idea of where the novel will be set The book is written in 1st person and the book bounces straight in with a mysterious phrase I saw her first a pale skinny girl lying on a flat rock below the rapids This phrase is interesting because it draws the reader and triggers their mind that that this mysterious girl may have connections to the sky hawk There is a repetitive language phrases kee kee used in the text this helps the reader to understand the noises of the hawk and how she tries to communicate with the characters Can you notice any patterns or puzzles with the storyThe book has repeated patterns of the highlands in Scotland nature rivers rapids and the hawk The are puzzles in the book are written as diary logs the logs are puzzles to the reader because the reader realises that Callum is using the puzzles to track how far the hawk travels the speed of the hawk and which locations the hawk flies over This stays as a continuous puzzle to the main character because she figures out the location the bird is flying over and this helps him to figure out how far the hawk is to her final destination Africa or Scotland How does the front cover help the reader to understand the themes of the book The front cover helps the reader to understand the themes of the book because it has a beautiful illustration of a hawk with bright yellows eyes and a black beak This therefore gives the reader an idea that the book may be based on a story about a hawk Below the picture of the bird there is a scenery of mountains and grassland and the reader may understand that the book may be based in the countryside or highlands How could the book be used in the classroom A good activity that could develop the children s knowledge of the book may be to ask the children to illustrate the front cover and consider the main themes that they think are important in the book The teacher could use the ideas of diary entry and letter and email writing to help the children to understand that there can eb different formats of writing The teacher could also read certain phrases with a good use of adjectives the teacher could read the adjectives to the children and then encourage them to come up with their own adjectives for the actions and looks of the hawk Dislikes and likesI enjoyed the novel sky hawk because I felt immersed in ten story and I felt as though I was in the story when the author had described the nature and scenery well The book was full of happy and sad moments this taught me that life is not always happy but it can be full of ups and downs The ending of the story captures a the beauty of the sky hawk and made me feel joyful and happy that the hawk had returned The phrase her bright sunflower eyes looked right into mine This phrase brought joy to the story and it a very beautiful ending describing the joy that the main character Callum feels when the hawk returns
