Simultaneous Storytime and Leaf Art
This week, MCC took part in the “National Simultaneous Storytime, 2022” organised by ALIA – the Australian Library and Information Association.
The book chosen by ALIA this year is “Family Tree” by Josh Pyke, illustrated by Ronojay Ghosh. All Primary students watched Josh read his book live from the National Library in Canberra which was SO great. If you want to re-watch with your kids, head over to the Scholastic Australia Facebook page.
Afterwards our students completed some craft based on how a Family Tree shares the beauty of life through the growth of a tree, one that unites families and communities around the world, spreading joy, love and spirit – and it all starts with one seed. Children created a leaf that will be attached to a class branch and delivered to the library to create our community tree. Stay tuned to see the final result.
Oh PS – if you are wondering about the attire, it was MUFTI DAY for our Year 6 fundraiser.
