This week, Kelvin Road School has been promoting reading through a variety of activities, which ended with a book character parade on Friday. Niva Retimanu opened Book Week on Monday with her favourite story 'Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck! We also had David Kemeys- the chief editor of Sunday Star and Lyn Kriegler an illustrator and author who taught us how she creates her stories using puppets and lots of imagination.
During the week, children read as many books as they could so that they could add a reading block to the book wall to create a collage of favourite stories. Some of the cool activities included making book marks, entering poster competitions, quiz and library hunt and entertainment with Starfish.
The parade was a fantastic event, which saw favourite book characters brought to life on stage. Willie Iosa came to talk with many of the characters and enjoy the last day of our book week fun.
