Literacy Week 2023
We had an exciting journey in the JLC this week, immersing ourselves in the wonderful world of children’s literature during Literacy Week 2023. Our celebrations intertwined with the Book Council of Australia’s Book Week theme of Read, Grow, Inspire. Our classrooms became literary wonderlands, where students could explore the magic of books.
Over the course of the week, our children showcased their spelling skills in the Hillspell Spelling Bee; challenging their young minds to spell their way to victory. Our top five in each year level were:
Eddie Lahey Rudd
Vincent van der Molen
The top five battled it out in the finals, with the following students being crowned the Hillspell Champions for their year level:
Year 4: Connor Berkowitz
Year 3: Helenka Swift
Year 2: Indie Lowe
Year 1: Jo Yanaka
Prep: Eddie Lahey-Rudd
Well done to all of our amazing spellers!
The adventures didn’t stop there! Our Bus Library transformed into a Scholastic Book Fair, where children could discover new treasures to add to their home libraries.
On Storybook/Book Character Day, children came dressed in costumes inspired by their favourite book characters, bringing these beloved stories to life. The children and staff looked amazing, with so much effort being put into the costumes. Our Prep – Year 2 children entertained their families with a rendition of Jack and the Beanstalk, which was a delight to behold.
To round off the week, our Year 3 and 4 students opened up their classrooms to showcase their learning.
What a wonderful way to nurture a love for reading and writing, sparking the imaginations of the next generation of wordsmiths; where learning is an enchanting adventure waiting to be discovered.
