Harmony Day Primary School Visit
We were thrilled to be invited to St Aloysius Catholic Primary School in Queenscliff recently. The Primary school were keen to have the Book Van onsite to help participate in Harmony Week activities and enhance their in classroom learning.
The Itty Bitty Book van arrived at 9.30 and set up before the first group of students arrived. The group of Grade 6 & Grade 1 buddies were given a quick intro and had opportunity for Q&A before filling into the van to awe at the shelves of picture books and select some favourites to read.
Some students choose to relax on the caravan couch others positioned them selves on the benches and as the sun was shining some decided to make use of the oversized beanbags outside the van.
To tie into the with the Harmony Week celebrations we included a selection of picture books with this underlying theme. We also provided a variety of ‘hats’ for the kids to try on and discuss what type of hat it was and who wore it. There was also a themed colouring activity provided.
