Literature Appreciation at Kenwick Primary

The goal of our Literature Appreciation Program is to expose students to the delights of literature by reading and exploring books in a fun and hands-on manner.

As part of Bookweek, many students participated in the City of Gosnells poster competition.

After reading the short story, Smart Ice-cream, by Paul Jennings, the Year 3 class created their own “smart ice-cream”. The jury is still out as to whether their ice-cream has worked for them!

The Year 4 class greatly enjoyed decorating “Dots” – little annoying characters found in the Emily Rodda novel, The Key to Rondo. Their “Dots”, however, ended up looking kind of sweet!

The Year 5/6 class created storyboards for the Morris Gleitzman novel, Once. The novel generated an enormous amount of discussion as it sensitively deals with the issues related to the Jewish Holocaust, as experienced by 11 year old Felix.
