Celebrating the Wonderful World of Books!
It may have been a short week but we sure did make the most of our two days together. On Thursday, we celebrated the wonderful world of books by dressing up as some of our favourite and inspirational book characters. Thank you to everyone who took the time to put together a costume for this great event. After taking part in the book character parade we join our Grade 5 Buddies to partake in some shared reading.
We were also visited by Mystery Reader Mr.Josh who read a personal favourite Stuck! By Oliver Jeffers. We look forward to showcasing the work of Oliver Jeffers as a featured author this month,
On Friday, the book festivities continued with a trip to the book fair. Once again we were amazed at the fantastic collection of book donations provided by our school community. We hope you find some time over the weekend to enjoy some reading together.
Perhaps one of the most inspiring events over the last two days was a visit from two Grade 5 students Mana and Ivana who came to read to us. The book they shared was one which they wrote and illustrated as part of their PYPx project connected to SDG 11: Responsible Consumption and Production. Their story challenged us to think about how some animals are stilled being poached for their ivory. It was also an authentic opportunity for us to connect with our current text type, narrative. We discussed the characters, setting, problem and solution in the story and look forward to writing our own stories from now until the end of term.
