All students in Prep - Grade 2 visit the library each week with their classroom teacher. Students in Grades 3 - 6 visit each fortnight. This 50 minute session involves the development of skills needed to locate books and resources for both information and pleasure as well as exposure to a variety of literature and authors. There is provision within this library session for borrowing. This encourages students to make reading a regular part of their life.
Term 3 2018
Term 3 in Library at Apollo Parkways is the time we celebrate all the wonderful authors and illustrators from right here in Australia with the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards. For more than 75 years the CBCA have worked to promote Aussie stories to Aussie kids and their families. This year we are encouraged to “Find Your Treasure” in the wonderful books chosen for the 2018 awards Notables and Shortlists, which we will be sharing throughout the coming term, which include stories from Freya Blackwood, Phil Cummings, Alison Lester, Anna Walker and many more.
Later in Term 3 we will be sharing stories to celebrate our Dads, the coming of our 2018 school production and the excitement of Footy season.
Can’t wait to read with you in Term 3!
