READ AROUND THE WORLD CHALLENGE
We have been exploring the annual Book Week theme through the lens of the PYP. The theme is Australia My Story Country which we have adapted to exploring story through World Stories (using the continents as a way to organise these countries).
We have selected books from each continent that can be shared over the course of the term.
