Last week, 10 students from Years 5 to 8 participated in the Bayside Regional Readers’ Cup Competition. In preparation for this competition, teams were required to read five novels with both our Year 5/6 team and Year 7/8 team showing tremendous commitment, meeting regularly throughout the term to recall the stories and quiz each other.
Although both teams missed out on a place at the competition, it was evident that our animated and enthusiastic group of readers had lots of fun – and have shared their love of reading with others.
Thank you to author, Samantha Wheeler, who captivated our Year 5/6 team when speaking about the ways in which she uses real life events to create amusing and sometime heart-wrenching scenes in her books.
Both teams are determined to place at the 2020 competition and are eagerly awaiting the announcement of next year’s novels.
