Gib Gate Book Fair and Author's Visit
We feel extremely lucky to have been able to enjoy a full week of Book Week celebrations last week, before moving to online learning in Week 6. Book Week is core to the Gib Gate literacy experience as students and staff together celebrate our love of literature and dress up as favourite characters. The Gib Gate Book Fair, with virtual tour and online book list from parents, was a great success and it was pleasing to see all children choosing books to purchase and see their excitement as they were able to simply browse, consider and select a book of their choice. The Zoom visiting Author and Illustrator session was inspiring, and the children learnt many ‘tips and tricks’ from Aura Parker, author of one of our favourite picture books Twig, about how to begin writing and illustrating their own books. The children enjoyed the delightful spring weather and also appreciated a special Book Week cake!
