Brigitte Schär got our Book Week off to a fabulous start with a presentation of her books. Explanations, singing and performing elements of her work kept the children entertained and enthralled as she explained the writing process and then the production process of her latest book.
The week progressed with a story character dress up parade including Elsa, Nancy Drew, The Paperbag Princess and Captain Underpants and the children enjoyed hearing the teachers’ favourite childhood stories. They all participated in a reading challenge through the week with the winners from each class receiving a book prize. To round the week off there was a book sale and performances for the parents in every classroom. What a wonderful way to engage with literature.
