Celebrating Book Week

Book week at our school was a wonderful celebration of books and reading with our Shelfies, Read Across the Universe Challenge, Reading Minutes School Challenge, Guest Readers in the LRC and our Book Week Parade…

Excitement was at fever pitch by last Friday as we edged closer to our Book Week Parade! Not even the rain and grey sky were going to put a stop to our parade with Mrs Stewart making sure we all fitted snuggly into the GECCO. What an amazing sight from the stage to see so many excited students from P-6 and teachers creatively dressed as their favourite book characters! For over an hour we enjoyed watching a wide array of  book characters walk across the stage.  A big thanks to both students and parents for their fabulous efforts!

There were lots of different interpretations of Billie B. Brown, Alice Miranda, Pearlie, Fancy Nancy, Specky Magee, Zac Power, Andy Roid and characters from the world of Harry Potter and Roald Dahl’s books.  We even had a fabulous tractor that was parked in the LRC for the day!

For the remainder of the day, students had fun participating in literature, art and maths activities based on the 2013 Short-listed Picture Books and the Read Across the Universe theme for Book Week. After lunch the afternoon was spent Buddy Reading with lots of favourite stories shared…

    WOW! Every one really put effort into their costumes! I love how every one dressed up as their favourite book character! I can’t wait till next year and also the book fair!

  9. Hi Emma

    It was like our books had come to life for the day!

    The Book Week theme for next year hasn’t been announced yet, but I will be keeping a look out for it!

    The Book Fair will be in Week Three and I’m hoping there will be lots of great books for people to buy and enjoy. Do you have any books you hope will be at the Book Fair?

    Miss Y 🙂
