Book Week 2016

This year for Book Week each teacher was asked to choose a book they wanted to read to their class and to complete an art activity to accompany the book. I chose the Winning book ‘Mr Huff’ by Anna Walker.

I loved reading this book over and over and talking to the students about the meanings behind the story and the pictures. Such a powerful message and suitable for all ages. I think every family should have a copy of this book at home.

The art activity was a huge success. The students all love loved making their own special Mr Huff to share secrets and worries with. Their own special worry doll. We all need one of these! screen-shot-2016-10-22-at-4-17-01-pm screen-shot-2016-10-22-at-4-16-53-pm screen-shot-2016-10-22-at-4-16-45-pm

 

Another art activity that turned out striking was the year 5/6 scrapper board based on the book ‘One Step At a Time’. These works of art are on display in the library. img_5558 img_5559 img_5560
