2020 Book Week
2020 Book Week
Each year, across Australia, the CBCA brings children and books together celebrating Children’s Book Week. During this time Schools, Libraries, Booksellers, Authors, Illustrators and children celebrate Australian Children’s Literature.
This year, Book Week is being celebrated 17-23 October with the theme Curious Creatures, Wild Minds.
We have a number of fun activities planned and encourage the participation of all students.
Create a Curious Creature or construct one already known from a story e.g. the Gruffalo, using recycled materials. The creature can be up to 40cm tall, 30 cm wide and 30 cm deep. It must be able to stand without support so it can be displayed.
There are prizes for every year level.
All entries should be brought to the library by Friday, 16 October.
There is a colouring competition with prizes for every year level. Students complete the
colouring page at home and return it to the library by Friday, 16 October.
BOOK CHARACTER PARADE
The Book Character Parade will take place on Tuesday, 20 October in the assembly area.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, parents will be unable to attend the parade this year.
To prepare for the parade:
Each student reads a story book (not a non-fiction book) or has a book read to them. They choose a character from the book to dress up as. Students should make their costumes at home and are encouraged to enjoy the process of creating something fun from a book that they enjoy. They bring the book with them to carry during the parade or a copy of the front cover.
Prizes for the BEST DRESSED in each year level!
Michelle Taylor – poet, author and entertainer – will be at OLGC on Friday, 23 October and present to all classes. We are looking forward to her visit.
Michelle is passionate about poetry and its potential to bring some magic into our lives. She believes that poetry can allow both young and old to express themselves more fully, and to appreciate themselves and the world around them with new wonder. "I want those I work with to go away feeling two things - firstly energised, and secondly, empowered by words and their endless possibilities in our lives".
AND there are lots of other activities planned! Book Week will be wonderful celebration of children’s literature.
