Book Week will take place nextweek – 19th-23rd October. This is a timewhere we celebrate children’s literature, particularly Australian literature.Throughout the week we will be reading the Children’s Book Council of Australia(CBCA) short-listed books for this year and the children will be evaluating thebooks and choosing their favourites.
The theme this year is ‘CuriousCreatures’.
To tie in with the theme and ourscience week explorations we will be focusing on amazing and curious creaturesof the sea. We would encourage thestudents to use this theme as inspiration for their costumes and an overallprize will be awarded for the costume that best fits the theme. The dress-up day will be held on Friday 23rdOctober and parents are welcome to attend the parade which will be held at 9:15am in the Junior Hub.
There will also be prizes for the best costume for each class and students may also come dressed as a characterfrom their favourite book. We stronglyencourage the students to be involved in their own costume design and creationand this will be taken into consideration when judging.
We are looking forward to a funweek of learning as we delve into the wonderful world of children’s literature.
