Year 1 have a Blast at The Word!
Year 1 visited our new local library, The Word, for an intergalactic treat. The class met the children's librarian Jolene and she showed us around the children's library. We enjoyed looking at at the fiction and non-fiction books and even found some about space and Neil Armstrong.
We were then taken into the space themed story room. There Jolene read the story, 'The Aliens are Coming!' by Colin McNaughton. The class then labeled items they would find in space and some children even wrote their own space stories.
Finally we went on a hunt for books on the Top 100 Books list. These are books that every child should read before leaving primary school. We found quite a few as well as some of our other favourite stories that we have read in class.
