Book Week Activities

As part of Book Week the students shared their favourite books with their classmates. They have decorated a spoon for spoonville to represent one of their favourite book characters. The Prep children have designed their own original book covers. Classes have listened to some of the shortlisted books and completed some class activities reflecting on the stories.

The Year 6 students have been busy writing narratives to share with their Prep buddies. As they haven’t been able to share their narratives with their buddies at school yet, they have sent their buddies a video reading their stories to them.

We are certain their buddies will love their stories.!!!  Please scroll down and view some of the Year 6 students reading their stories.

Literacy News

Classroom Helpers 

Many thanks to the parents who attended the Classroom Helpers Information Session. If you have nominated a time that you are available to help in your child’s classroom, your child’s teacher will contact you to confirm if that time is an appropriate time for them.


Prep Reading Information Workshops 

Thank you to the Prep parents who attended the Reading Information Session. You play a most important part in the development of your child’s reading. The time you share with your children, enjoying picture stories or hearing them read their first take home books is precious valuable time that can instil a love for reading and give them a positive start to their literacy learning journey. Please ensure you help them engage in the text and use the picture clues along with the text to help them read.
