On the last day of Bookweek the Reception- Year 2 children had a dress up day. We chose to dress up in any kind of costume that we had. There were a variety of costumes and the children all looked great. We held a parade outside so that we could see children from other classes in their costumes.
As a part of our Bookweek celebrations we brought in a book from home to share with our classmates. It was a part of our Sharing Time topics. We introduced the book, it’s author, told the class a bit about the story and why it was our favourite book.
It was really interesting to see all of the different books that we brought in – there was a really big variety and it gave us all new ideas of books we might like to read.

Today we went to the Library as a part of the Bookweek Celebrations. The theme for Bookweek 2011 is ‘One World, Many Stories.’ We worked with our Year 5 Buddy Class and had a great time together.
Mrs Langham, our Librarian, organised a variety of activities for us to do. With our buddy, we visited a continent and researched some facts about that country and recorded the information into our passports. We had lots of fun reading picture fiction and non fiction books together. We found out facts and traditions from different countries around the world.
This week we are celebrating SSO (School Services Officers) week at school. Our class celebrated the work that Mrs Graham does in our front office. She is friendly, kind and happy. She helps us if we get hurt. She helps to organise our great excursions.
All schools in South Australia have SSO’s. They work in the Front Office, help children with their learning in classrooms, work in the Library, work in the Finance Office (help book excursions and order supplies) and help with lots of jobs in the school.
On Monday our class had a session with Carol from the CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation).
We worked as Scientists by investigating and experimenting during 4 different activities about Forces.
We looked at:
Balancing points – the centre of gravity.
Waddling ducks – measurement.
Magnets – attraction and repulsion
Cartesian Divers – floating and sinking.
It was a lot of fun trying new ideas, trying out experiments, testing our predictions and recording our work. Have a look at our photos of the visit and tell us what you think about our work. We look forward to your comments!
