A very successful book week at RPCS this year! Thank you to all teachers and parents/carers involved, for your enthusiasm, effort and time in making this a wonderful day for all!
Last term, students had a lot of fun celebrating books, authors and illustrators. In the spirit of Book week, here is a recount of what Primary got up to, Dr Seuss style:
Read on as we share
how we escaped to everywhere…
Dressed up, paraded and had a book fair!
Oh, the exciting places we have been,
and all the wonderful things we have seen.
Reading stories with our buddies and stage,
transported us to a new World off the page.
Oh, the magnificent characters we met.
Did the teachers dress up? You bet!
Cat in the hat, thing one and thing two,
wait, is that a caterpillar so very blue?
Oh, the parade we marched in lines,
people in costumes looking ‘oh so fine’.
Music and singing filled the hall,
dancing and clapping, we had a ball!
Oh, the cheering we joined in,
praising those deserving of the win.
Bravo! The best dresser uppers,
and to our tip top talented writers!
Hip hip hooray,
for a most fantabulous day!
It’s one we’ll sure remember,
the best day in September.

“Book week was the best day ever! It was so much fun. I enjoyed dressing up and seeing everyone in their cool costumes. The parade was very funny.”

Extract from Caitlyn Nguyen’s short story, year 4.
I was born on the seaside, sad and lonely. I stared into the colourful sunset. Crawling and yelping for help, I’m only just a tiny turtle! No parents to look after me, no friends to play with, yet I still don’t know what this blue, shimmery water that goes on for a million miles is called. Suddenly, I heard a voice so similar to mine. I look around to find a turtle crawling across the soft sand. He wants to be my friend, of course I said yes! But one thing, he wants to go into the “Ocean”. It’s a big risk, I don’t know what lies beyond this sand, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take. I plop my fin into the deep, blue waters. My body overfills with relaxation. I realise that I was born to swim. I can swim so swiftly yet I still have a lot to learn. Other sea creatures come to greet the newest member of the Ocean. Me! All the animals have such unique patterns and personalities to discover.
