Hooked on Books 2017

We have spent the month of August celebrating books and reading, with a variety of fun activities designed to inspire a love of reading in children. Grade 1 and 2 children decorated their classroom doors to represent the covers of children’s books. Learners carried books on them for Drop All and Read Friday’s and raised funds through the school Readathon, where they’re sponsored for each minute that they read. To conclude the month of reading festivities, learners spent a day dressed as their favourite book characters and were treated to a show by Hooked on Books, who showcased various extracts from new and exciting children’s literature.
