Welcome Back in Term 2

Welcome Back to a fantastic Term 2.

I am really excited and looking forward to a fantastic term in the LRC.

Year 7 Fantasy and Fairy Tale Fun

We would like to find out more about you as readers.  So as a first task go to http://PollEv.com

 You can see the polls on the official LRC website in the year 7 Info Lit page.

Remember to enter the number which corresponds to each question first and then type your answer.

The questions are:

  1.  Who is your all-time favourite author?
  2. Which book changed your life?
  3. What did you read on the holidays?
On our website we also have a video on the chronicles of Narnia as we are showcasing Fantasy and Fairytales.
Yes, in our Fantasy Collection there are handsome swashbuckling princes, dynamic but stylish princesses, fiery dragons and all our stories are set in intriguing interesting places.  So tread gently. Don’t get squashed by a giant and open books with care.  As you can see  it is a hugely popular genre with many exciting books to explore and choose from.
We would also like you to explore Ziptales and all the wonderful resources.  Make sure you check out the Graphic Classics and the Informative Documentary on Fairy Tales.
If you would like more reading choices in an e-book format, please go to the ‘Read’ Page in this blog. There are many worthwhile websites to visit and enjoy.

Year 8 Science Fiction Fun

In our first session we will be focussing on Science Fiction.

As a warm up task go to the LRC website and click on the  Info Lit year 8  page and take the poll.  You can answer 1 or all 3 questions:

  1.  Who is your all-time favourite author?
  2. Which book changed your life?
  3. What did you read on the holidays?
*We will take a brief look at Dr Karin’s presentation on Science Fiction.  I think this is an exciting genre. I particularly enjoy reading works which present a post apocalyptic future but also challenges our values and thinking in the present.  Because is that the future we really want to create?
* Captain Sunita William’s video about life in space is fantastic.  Have you ever wondered how to brush your teeth or go to the toilet in space?  Remember we also have heaps of non fiction books about space and science fiction that are just as compelling.
* I also want to show you the Hunger Games movie trailer.  This really communicates the excitement of this genre brilliantly. Don’t you think?

Reminders:

Borrow at least 2 books.
