We have done many things this week as a school and also as a class to celebrate Book Week.

Whole School Dress Up and Parade

On Wednesday our school dressed up in our favourite book characters and held an assembly in the Quad where we had a parade. This was a lot of fun and it was terrific to see everyone dressed up in a variety of characters.

Book Week Activity

This year we created an Australian outback display in our classroom. Mrs Baldwin took a photo of each of us reading a book and placed our pictures on the large display area. We also wrote a reflection piece answering the following questions:

As a class we discussed these 2 questions and we really thought about why we have such a love for reading. In Room 10 we all enjoy reading a variety of texts from fiction, non fiction, magazines, novels, picture books, articles and we practise reading daily each morning in our literacy block.

It has been a massive week!!
