Each year across Australia, The Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Children’s Book Week. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children’s literature.
Every year there is a theme to help celebrate. This year the theme is…
Escape to Everywhere
There are many shortlist categories which Mrs Baldwin has displayed in the corridor. Check out the categories below and the books that have been shortlisted for each one.
We have some of these books in our school library and Mrs Baldwin has read some of them to us over the last few weeks.
Our class participated in an art activity based on this years theme ‘Escape to Everywhere.’ We discussed as a class how certain books allow us to escape to another place while we enjoy reading about characters and the plot and learning different things.
We each chose our favourite place that we would escape to when reading a book. We then needed to design a background for the place we chose. Once we did this we went onto computers and printed out about 5 pictures that we could place around our background. Mrs Baldwin then took a picture of ourselves reading a book and we stuck this picture on the art piece.
Finally we wrote a few sentences describing the place we have chosen to escape to when reading. Check out our finished work here…
On Friday the whole school participate in a dress up parade. This was a lot of fun. Check out some of the pictures of the day…
Everyone looked fantastic and it was a wonderful week celebrating different books together!
