Escape to Everywhere!

 

 

Next week, Week 2 we will be celebrating Book Week at William Carey.

This year’s theme is “Escape to Everywhere”.

Books can take us to so many different places in our imaginations, can’t they?

Have you ever enjoyed reading a book so much, that you lost track of time? I have.

There will be so much happening to celebrate Book Week over the next few weeks.

Monday- Wednesday:  After Recess: “The Great Teacher Swap”. Teachers will go to different classes to read some great books to the students.

Thursday : “Reading in a secret location”. Teachers will take their class to read a book in a  fun, “secret location”

Friday :  Grandparents Day . Students from K-3 will dress up as a favourite Book Character and be involved in a Book Week parade.

BOOK FAIR

Our Scholastic Book Fair arrives on Wednesday of Week 2 (Book Week) and will be leaving on Wednesday of Week 3.

Students and parents can view the Book Fair at lunch time and after school Wednesday Week 2 and before school, at lunch time and after school on Thursday.

Have you tried Graphic Novels?

What is a Graphic Novel?

Your parents and grandparents might have called them “Comics”

A Graphic Novel is a novel in comic-strip format. Graphic novels can be fiction, non-fiction, history, fantasy or anything in between.

We have a display of Graphic Novels in the Library ranging in suitability from Primary age to High School.

If you haven’t seen the shelves where they are yet…ask someone in the library to point you in the right direction!

Meet Henrietta

9781760290245.jpgHello everybody, it’s me. Henrietta the Great Go-Getter, and I’m having a big think. Right now I’m thinking I’d like a baby sister, so I can dress her up in different sorts of hats. But Mum says we’ll have to wait and see. I’m terrible at waiting.

Meanwhile, I’m an explorer of life, and that includes trees, bugs, animals and all mysteries. I’m going to school for the very first time, which means I might have to go as a spy so that I can have a secret peep inside…

When Henrietta sees Olive Higgie crying in the classroom, she goes on a rescue mission and finds that you only need one friend in a room full of strangers to feel perfectly happy.

Henrietta’s stories are full of funny thoughts and discoveries, and maybe the best are the ones that take a long time to come.

Other books in this series:

 

Suitable for newly independent readers ages 6+
