Get excited, everyone! It’s time for our annual BOOK WEEK celebration!
This is an opportunity for the whole community to share in our love of literacy and reading.
Here are the activities we have planned for the week Monday 26th- Friday 30th August, 2019
Tuesday 27th August- DRESS UP DAY
Please come dressed as your favourite book characters! Mila and Sienna (our illustrious Literacy Leaders) will be coming around to judge the costume competition (one prize for each year level) but really it’s just about the fun of being dressed up and having fun!
Wednesday 28th August- FOUNDIE AND JUNIOR BOOK WEEK TRIVIA (at lunch time)
Based on the shortlisted books from the Children’s Book Week Awards, Mila and Sienna will be running a trivia quiz for Junior and Founder students at lunch time in the library. This is not compulsory, but there will be prizes for winners!
Teachers will be reading the shortlisted books to their students over the next couple of weeks in preparation.
Thursday 29th August- READING FLASH MOB (morning)
During the morning session, at some point there will be a Reading Flash Mob. What this means is that every person on the school premises (from Hannah through to Kris and any parents enjoying their coffee at Sprout) will pull out a book and read for ten minutes. Music will be played to indicate the start of the Reading Flash Mob and Music will be played to signify when it is over. We would love 100% participation for best effect. Thank you.
Thursday 29th August- YEAR SIX BOOK-BASED TREAT STALL (lunch time)
The Year Sixes will be running a book-based treat stall in the Undercover area at lunch time on the 29th so come along for some fun bookish treats!
That’s all for Book Week, but ALSO: Next Week!
VERY EXCITING! The YOUNG AUTHORS AWARD 2019 Winners will be announced at Assembly on Friday 23rd August (except Year 3 and Year 4, as they’ll still be coming back from camp). We have been overwhelmed by the amount of entries this year and the magnificent quality of writing. We are looking forward to acknowledging some outstanding works in our school on this day!
