Library

“Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.” Laura Bush

OVERVIEW

Students develop their understanding that being able to read is a part of God’s plan and that through the written work we can learn about God and the world around us. Students revise library rules and procedures on borrowing and caring for books. They listen, read and respond to a variety of Picture Books and build on their understanding of the different parts of a book. The aim is to help students gain an appreciation of the beauty and power of God through the language they read, allowing them to listen to, read and view a range of literature. As well as continue to build confidence in the library procedures to care for and borrow books
