World Book Day 2021
In early March, World Book Day presented a lovely opportunity to have some fun and take a break from lock-down learning.
Creating a ‘book nook’ (creating a special reading place), recreating the food described in a famous book (suggestions included a Hogwarts banquet!), recreating a famous scene from a book, book reviews, poetry, creating a comic strip and audio book recommendations- these were just some of the activities we suggested our Senior School students try. There was also the option to simply read a book!
In response to the task, this beautiful poem was created by Artie, one of our students:
The sky is like the sea, beautiful in ways
Birds are like boats skimming across the waves
Clouds are like mist slowly to be unveiled
The sun is like a buoy bobbing on the swell
Thunder rings out like a ships bell
Lightning flashes like fish darting through a reef
Rain lashes down like a flock of greedy guls
The wind blows strong pushing hard like a wave
These are some suggestions of Audiobooks from Alex in Year 9:
I've loved the Mortal Engines quartet and the Fever Crumb trilogy. They're all by Phillip Reeves. The order of the books are:
Fever Crumb, A Web of Air , Scriveners Moon , Mortal Engines .Predators Gold , Infernal Devices , A Darkling Plain
They're a very good series. I found them very interesting as they're steam punk books and about traction cities. It's a pretty crazy world.
Our Prep students enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters….
