The best book Friday ever!

 

From writing workshops to puppet shows and storytelling with uncles to authors what a day we have had in St. Oliver Plunkett school. It has capped off a fun week of reading and entertaining authors and a magical week of imagination. Well done to all involved and a huge thank you to our book buzz team.

What a wonderful OOh Aah experience with John Kane. Kids were so engaged and participation levels exceeded all expectation for a really fantastic book. Our infants and teachers loved it. As you can see our drawings really helped.
