On Tuesday we had our BIG READ in the hall.  What an amazing site to see over 100 children reading quietly and enjoying hot chocolate in the hall.  Just like the book “Where’s Wally,” Can you spot your child?

 
We have had numerous competitions running this week:

The Scavenger Hunt – this gave children the opportunity to search for particular items in books. This has kept them very busy during their library sessions.
Global Library – If you haven’t found the Global Library on Global Campus yet, then get yourself online. Global library is an excellent way to discover new worlds, stories and poems from around the world.  Children are able to contribute to online reviews and post comments about the books they have read.
Visual Art Competition – Classes have been working hard to produce a piece of art work that compliments a story from the Creative writing competition.  This allows the students to become illustrators themselves.
Photo Competition – This competition pushed our reading to the extreme. Where is the weirdest/funniest/strangest place or position that you can get your class to read?

 

Each class has been buddied up with another class to read to each other.  This has been a wonderful opportunity to share interests, meet new friends and be introduced to new books and authors. 

To end the week we had a Dress-up day on Friday. Children and teachers came to school dressed at their favourite characters or authors.

This week we celebrated every child as a reader. Our aim was to energize the children’s book world and bring as many children and adults together as possible to celebrate this wonderful annual tradition known as Children’s Book Week.  Well done BSB Sanlitun.
