BISS has been celebrating books all week. One of the highlights of the week has been DEAR – Drop Everything And Read. A teacher will pop their head into a classroom and shout DEAR. Whatever class is going on, it stops and they all start reading.
They also had a book fair and all the kids had plenty of opportunity to spend their money on a wide selection of books. Both Isabelle and Oliver found a couple of books that they liked!
Friday was Book Character dress up day. Isabelle decided to go as Rolly (one of the 99 puppies in 101 Dalmations) and Oliver was Cat in the Hat for the day.
Isabelle’s costume was so easy as she borrowed some pj’s from a friend and I just painted some spots on her face. Oliver’s was a little trickier. I had originally decided to make a pop-up Dr Seuss hat, but after 2 attempts of following the instructions, it ended up as a normal hat. Even so, it was well after midnight on Thursday before I had finished!! I made him a bow tie, had some furry fur sewed onto a black hoodie and white gloves finished the look. He was so reluctant to have anything (make-up/face paint) on his face, but I persuaded him that the look would not be complete without a black nose and whiskers!
The Infants (Year 1 and 2) had a costume parade and Oliver was thrilled to win the Boys prize for best costume! Guess the late night was worth it!
