Book Week

From the 22nd to the 26th of May both sites at Wadestown School celebrated their yearly book week.  This consisted of competitions, shared reading, visiting authors, literacy quizzes and the book fair. The ever popular book parade also took place at the end of the week, and was enjoyed by students and teachers alike!

Writing from Year 7 students:

‘It was very fun and there were lots of creative costumes. Mr Piper dressed up as Wally from ‘Where’s Wally?’ and the Yr 7\8 teachers were all dressed as characters from ‘The Lord of the Rings’.’

‘On Wednesday, author Bianca Begovich came to our school. She has written many children’s books about the environment, and talked to us about how to write successfully. She said you should always write about the things you love and are passionate about.’
