Junior School (Years K-6): On Monday morning the Junior School celebrated Book Week with a Grand Parade of Australian Stories. Every class recited a poem they had learned, dressed for the occasion and also decorated the hall with art work to illustrate their recitation.
A ‘Shelfie’ competition is taking place this week in the IRC for the Senior School (Years 7-12). Students and teachers have to guess which teacher belongs to which ‘Shelfie’. Next week all will be revealed with the teachers’ ‘Selfies’ that were taken in front of their bookshelves.
Year One came to the IRC to officially take part in the National Simultaneous Storytime event for 2016. The students all came appropriately dressed with hats representing many things – from Vikings to sportsmen.
After some activities involving hats the students listened to the book version of I got this hat by Jol and Kate Temple, they then watched a few renditions online from the NSS site. We also really enjoyed the illustrated Auslan version in sign language.
These faces tell it all:
