From science to reading  – or just how much do these subjects overlap?

Next week, 17-23 August is celebrated as Children’s Book Week in Australian schools. This brings our priority focus next week to ‘Reading: My Secret Power’, this year’s Book Week theme. All Junior School students, from 3-year-olds to Year 5, will experience a range of engaging reading experiences, including workshops with published children’s authors.

Book Week is also another opportunity for families at home to enjoy reading and sharing books together. We know just how valuable for children’s learning – especially young children – being read to regularly is. Parents are most welcome to visit conneXions to learn more about Book Week and to share a book with their child(ren) – next week or at any time.
