Week 7 - Literacy Week!!!!
We had a great time in Room 13 during Literacy week! Everyone enjoyed the workshops run by Stu Duval! He was very entertaining with his story about Huia Bay and the pirate, Captain Black Custard! We also loved learning about cartooning and all created some cool cartoons!
We enjoyed D.E.A.R - drop everything and read - it was great to stop and pick up a book and just enjoy reading when the buzzer went off!
During the week we enjoyed many stories read to us by MS.Maloni! Some were her OLD favourites from when she was a kid, such as, 'The Diggingest Dog,' 'The Story of Ping,' 'The Five Chinese Brothers,' and the new favourites, 'Baa Baa Smart Sheep' and 'I Love Lemonade.' We even wrote letters to the author and illustrator of the books and are looking forward to getting a reply from them!
The final day of Literacy Week was celebrated with a Book Character Parade! We all dressed up and enjoyed parading around for the whole school to admire our awesome costumes!
