Book week at OurPlanet is a time for us to celebrate the power of words and stories. All week students have been busy exploring poems, coming up with alternative endings for popular stories and designing a giant book cover for a favourite book to display on their door. On Tuesday and Wednesday, Omani authors Dr Fatma Anwar Al Lawati and Mrs Omama al Lawati came in to share their books with our Arabic as a first language students. Wednesday was also ‘word day’ and we all had a lot of fun reading each other’s words. As always, the week culminated in our dress as a book character day – it was wonderful to see the number of creative homemade costumes using re-purposed materials. Kids also had a chance to ride the ‘story carousel’ as they went from class to class to get a flavour of each others favourite books.
