At 2pm, this Wednesday, 25th May one of our Kindergarten classes will perform "I got this hat", written by Jol and Kate Temple, and illustrated by Jon Foye.
Each year our school performs the book selected by the Australian Library and Information Association for the National Simultaneous Storytime event, an event encouraging reading aloud to children throughout Australia.
This year's book appeals to younger audiences but also provides opportunities for older students to discuss the purpose of hats, investigate the materials used to create them and incorporate geography skills to learn about where hats come from around the world.
The whimsical illustrations add to the humour of the story, with an almost hide-and-seek quality, only revealing the whole image of the narrator at the very end.
We hope to see our families and friends on the day. The performance will also be uploaded to our blog, so don't forget to come back for a visit.
