LIBRARY TERM 4

P/1A & P/1W

This term our Prep and One students will read and share a wide selection of quality literature, the focus being on rhythm and rhyme. Follow up activities are predominantly language based, to extend students’ understanding and flexibility of the English language.

Students continue to be encouraged borrow two to three books a week to read and share at home. Please support your child by prompting them to return library books each week.

 

2/3J & 2/3E

The author, Paul Jennings writes for a huge range of audiences. His books, ‘The Gizmo’ and ‘The Gizmo Again’ explores the themes of peer pressure and consequences, in a humorous fashion, for the emergent reader. The intention is to discuss these themes, in conjunction with our School wide Values Program.

 

3 /4 A

As we begin our new serial, our focus is the importance of friendship.  Students will be given the opportunity to watch the first movie from the series, to compare and contrast the differences between the novel and the movie.

 

4/5 M

Last term students had the opportunity to showcase an author, a novel or series of novels that they have read. Students are responsible for choosing a variety of activities that reflect their understandings and appreciations of their chosen topic. This term, students are given the opportunity to showcase their show bag to other classes and complete a self-evaluation rubric, as an assessment task.
