Class 5 and 6 students were introduced to sketchnoting which is a type of visual note taking. It is fun and can be used at different stages of the research process or when listening for information. There are many ways to sketchnote and many examples available.
With the end of the school year fast approaching, the Library is seeking the return of all library books. Library policy is that there is no summer holiday borrowing. This is to allow for end-of-year library procedures to be completed in a timely manner. It also ensures that books do not go missing during holiday times away from home or if families may need to move.
However, it is important for students to read during the holiday period. The Richmond Tweed Libraries are a great resource and we highly encourage families to join up to your local library, if you are not yet members. The annual Summer Reading Club has started too!
Happy holidays to all our students and families. The Shearwater Library looks forward to hearing about all the wonderful stories read when the new school year begins!
