Write a Book in a Day

This week the Year 5 and 6 students participated in Write a Book in a Day. Students were given the whole day to generate ideas, plan out a story, organise group roles, write their 3000-word story and finish with editing and illustrations. It is a huge task for the students, but with the use of their Approaches to Learning and determination, they were able to achieve this goal. The books will be printed, bound and kept in the library for all Prep students to borrow and read.

CBCA – Recommended Reading List

Not sure what to read over the holidays?

The CBCA 2021 Shortlist has wonderful books that they have chosen as great reads! We have these books available at the Prep Library so pop by and borrow them and find out later in the year which book will be announced as the book of the year!

CBCA Book Week

This year the CBCA Book Week Theme is Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds! Over the break is a great time to start to think about a Book Week costume you would like to wear for our Book Week Parade in Week 5! This is a lovely time for families to come together and get creative whilst making their Book Parade Costume.

Some theme ideas to help you choose your outfit could include:

  • Fantasy
  • Dinosaurs
  • Medieval times
  • Space/Galaxies
  • Western
  • Dystopian

If you are stuck for ideas, please come and see us in the library to have a chat.
