One of the ways students can participate in the fun of Book Week is by joining in our Book Week Creative Challenge. They are encouraged to unleash their imagination and creativity on the Book Week theme which this year was Books Light Up Our World.
It is like Christmas for me as students bring in their fabulous creations and I love putting them around the LRC for everyone to enjoy. The hardest part is trying to choose winners and I’ve done my best. I have also included photos of some of our Creative Challenge entries, but this is by no means all of them…
Congratulations and a BIG thank you to everyone who participated in our Book Week Creative Challenge and lit up our library with your imagination and creativity…

Over the past two weeks our LRC has been “creatively messy” as the Year 3 – 6 classes have been busily making their own bookmarks. Students used wrapping paper, old book pages, coloured paper and cardboard (and quite a bit of glue covered the table tops) as they connected books, reading, creativity and imagination to make their fabulous bookmarks. They chose quotes that either reflected themselves as readers or quotes that would inspire them to read. Here is a selection of bookmarks from the 12 classes….

Hopefully these fabulous bookmarks will also encourage people not to bend the corners on the pages our library books!
We have been thoroughly enjoying reading The 26-Storey Treehouse written by Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton. We love the way they combine their imagination and humour! Last week the Year 3 and 4 students were inspired by Terry and Andy (and Edward Scooperhands) to create their own flavours for our very own ice cream. Our ice cream has 124 different flavours….

Some of our ice cream flavours include…
Frozen bums Cheese Touch Surprise Candy Clouds Green Thumbs Luscious Lava Last Night’s Dinner Paint Spill Slimy Brain Crustacean Curry Harry-Mort Dragon Fruit Danger Dad’s Socks Pigs Can Fly Footy Fab Cheezels and Burger Rings Supreme Rock Solid
What flavour ice-cream would you create?
We wonder what Andy and Terry might think of our ice-cream flavours…
