This Wednesday in Year Three we celebrated our love of reading by participating in the National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS). NSS is an event held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously all around Australia.
This year’s book was ‘Whitney and Britney: Chicken Divas’, which is written and illustrated by Lucinda Gifford.
We enjoyed the (brief) spot of sunshine as we read this funny, dazzling and exciting story. While reading, we shared ideas about the characters, setting and plot and made connections between the story and our own lives.
After reading, we completed a book review to reflect on our personal opinions and feelings about the story.
We then enjoyed exploring our creativity and individuality by designing and decorating our very own ‘Chicken Divas’. It was lots of fun!
From the Year Threes, Mrs Ryan & Williams
