Sapere aude - Dare to be wise

Book Festival May 2016

For the last week of Term 5 we have had a book festival. Leading up to this week children were encouraged to make a book box of their favourite story at home; these are now on display around the school and photographs of some of these fantastic boxes can be seen below. Each class has decorated their classroom door and made a story table,  John Foster a children's author worked with each class and thrilled the children with his poetry and challenged the children to write their own poems for a competition.  We also had a bedtime story session one evening where the children came back to school in their pyjamas, listened to a bedtime story with a cup of hot chocolate, the week culminated with a dress up day on the theme of story characters. Browse below at the various slide shows to see some of the things that took place during this week.
