Here’s one that the 5SA Frenchies did. (BTW, we saved the image by using PRINT SCREEN and pasting the image into a Word document, cropping it and then saving it as a JPEG using Paint.)

As part of our Book Week celebrations, Tony Bones presented an adaptation of Audrey of the Outback, by Christine Harris. It’s on the CBCA Book of the Year shortlist, and it’s a great story.
Every year during Literacy Week we have a performance based on the plot from one of the Book of the Year shortlisted books. This year, Tony Bones based the play on Amelia Dee and the Peacock Lampo by one of our favourite authors, Odo Hirsch. The most popular character was Amelia’s know-it-all friend Eugenie, seen in the picture above – it was very funny.
Every year during Book Week, Miss Hill makes up questions about stories we’ve had at library time, and we have to guess the answers. Our teachers read out the question for the day, and we post our answers in the red post box outside the library. The winner gets a little prize!
At assembly on Monday morning, each class presented a book they had made for sharing on the BookMobile.
Miss Spychalla transformed one of the library bookstands into a sensational BookMobile which travelled around our classrooms during book week. You can see the books we made if you click here.
