Excited listeners in Kindergarten to Year 2 celebrated the renowned Australian author Mem Fox’s birthday last week.
Our Teachers and Librarians read to the eager children some of Mem’s favourite books including ‘Koala Lou’, ‘Where is the Green Sheep?’ and ‘Possum Magic’.
Engaging in fun activities that linked to each of Mem’s books, our students had a fabulous afternoon celebrating a wonderful author. Kindergarten students also went on a little treasure hunt to find clues about the missing ‘Green Sheep’ – there were excited ‘ooohs and ahhs’ as they found each clue and came closer and closer to the final discovery of the missing Green Sheep.
Added to the celebration and excitement were some delicious colourful cupcakes.
Happy Birthday Mem Fox! Thank you for writing so many wonderful books that capture our little learners’ imaginations and give them a greater love of reading!
