Thursday 25 August was a great day at our school – Book Week Parade Day. We started the day with lots of excitement seeing all the great costumes and posters that children (and their families) had come up with for the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s theme of: Australia! Story Country.
After the parade there was the thrilling announcement of the poster competition winners and our class was lucky enough to have 2 children win in their year level category. Congratulations to our two classmates who both put a lot of effort into their entries.
Finally we had a great time showing off our dancing skills with a whole school dance to the heel toe polka. We had a great time practicing this and really challenged ourselves well in following our value of being able to work to the best of our abilities no matter who we were partnered with!
The theme for this year’s book week is ‘Books Light Up Our World’ and our library was turned into even more of a wonderland of books for this special event.
We had our special time in the library with Mrs Koenig on Tuesday and what a lovely visit it was. We started by sharing some of our thoughts about what this year’s theme was all about and Codey shared a lovely thought with us that
“If you keep reading books, they bring a whole other part to your life”
Then Mrs Koenig shared a special video with us of Aaron Blabey reading his Book Week nominated book, Pig The Pug
After that we were able to spend some time with all of our favourite book week books from years gone by and the added bonus was Mrs Koenig had lots of different torches so we could try lighting up our books in different ways. It was a great chance to enjoy reading in some very special ways.
