Thank you to all the parents and students who supported Book Week last week. Our Book Fair was very successful, with many books being donated to our school Library. On Thursday students attended a performance called ‘Read you can – Orang-utan’. 

On Friday we had a book parade and a lot of 5/6J members got dressed up for the day! Can you find: Judy Moody, Jake from Adventure Time, the Child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bag (complete with child!), The wicked witch of the West, Winnie the Pooh, Smaug the Dragon, Dracula and many more characters?

Who was your favourite?

Fantasy creatures feature in LOTS of stories we love reading, from Kindergarten picture books up to young adult fantasy  / adventure novels. They are used by authors to help create movies in your mind of fantastical creatures with extraordinary features and powers. 

Good writers use descriptive phrases, noun groups, similes and other devices to describe these creatures.

Good readers conjure up vivid images in their mind of how the creature looks and acts.

Here is a POPPLET Miss B made about the sleek from ‘Song For A Scarlet Runner’.

Now it’s your turn to use descriptive phrases!

Choose one ( or ALL! ) of the links below to visit boards where you can add descriptive words and phrases about how these fantasy creatures look and how they might act and move. 

Shimmering light!

Beware the deep!

Is it a tiger?

Last Thursday 12 KSPS choir members performed at the Opera House as part of the Pulse Western Sydney Concert. We travelled to the city by train and had lunch at Circular Quay. We had to rehearse all afternoon in the Concert Hall. In between the rehearsal and Dinner we walked around the Opera House forecourt and got to see a cruise ship leaving the harbour. 

After dinner at City Extra we headed back to the Opera House to perform! Finally at 9.30pm we were finished and got to head home! A big day!
