Our school celebrates Book Week in Week 10. On the last day of this term, we have our book week parade. This year’s Book Week theme is ‘Escape to everywhere’.
We are currently learning about the Age of Exploration and looking at famous early world explorers. A few weeks ago, we read a book about space exploration to the Moon. The Book is titled ‘The Sea of Tranquility’ by Mark Haddon. We will be using this book to discuss space exploration and brainstorm some possible costume ideas for the parade. These ideas may include astronauts, NASA scientists, astronomers, and photographers etc. Students are also welcome to dress up in anything they connect the idea of exploration/explorers with, so the opportunities really are endless.
If you have any questions regarding the parade or costume ideas, please let me know.
