Whole School Dress Up and Parade

Book Week Activity

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!!
