Literacy Month in Elementary!

The first day of Literacy Month started with a whole school assembly and children dressing up as their favourite Dr Susse to celebrate this famous author's birthday (the 3rd of March). During the month children were able to take part in the Read-A-Thon, writing competition, book swap, decorating classroom doors, special word games at break time and buddy reading. We also had a special Pyjama Day where each class had time to go and read in the winter garden and drop everything and read times twice a week all month (DEAR). In class, children were learning to use expression during reading by taking part in readers theatre. The end of the month finished with a closing ceremony where we celebrated all we have done all month, our achievements and the winners of the competitions.
