Hear how Year 5 students from Wooloowin State School in Queensland used the Little Lunch TV series and Little Lunch App as part of their English activity looking at ethical dilemmas in literary texts. The Little Lunch App allowed them to create their own ‘text’ after thorough planning, story-boarding and scripting.
The Little Lunch App videos the Wooloowin State School students produced were entered into the 2016 Little Lunch App Competition.
Everyone has a little lunch story to tell and in modelling the relatable, funny and moving on-screen tales of the TV series, the Little Lunch App paves the way for classrooms to tell and share theirs.
Each year, the ACTF runs a Little Lunch App competition for primary students who have created their own stories using the app.
Designed to promote literacy learning while also developing digital technologies skills, the Little Lunch App supports teachers and student in creating and sharing their own Little Lunch-inspired episode.
