Year 5 and 6 "Reading Conversations"

The boys learn from their peers about their reading journeys as well as sharing their own experiences.
Teacher Librarians Ms Palmer and Mrs Lusink also actively help boys find books they want to read and discuss strategies that may help them develop their reading engagement.

Photographs in the Mud

"Miss, we’re reading a picture book!?" the boys in Year 6 exclaimed, insisting they were already too grown up! As they settled into the story of “Photographs in the Mud” by Dianne Wolfer & Brian Harrison-Lever, the boys kept an open mind. Many people don’t realise that a wide range of picture books are in fact written for all ages- requiring the use of multiliteracies to gain meaning of a particular subject or idea. 
The discussions that followed these initial comments were both an engaging and a valuable exploration and questioning around particular subjects that arose throughout the story.
