We were lucky to be joined by Catherine Gilliland on our first day back to school for the 2022-2023 school year. Catherine shared her story-telling skills and love for literacy with both classrooms. The Junior Room enjoyed meeting Barney the Bear and learning about his visit to the zoo. They also listened to a lovely story ‘Why are there so many books about bears?’ by Kristina Stephenson. The Senior Room enjoyed ‘The Matchbox Diary’ by Paul Fleischman and created story dice. The visit was topped off by a visit from Catherine’s lovely poochon, Ted.
Catherine provided staff training in literacy which was highly beneficial. We are very thankful to Catherine for joining us and look forward to working with her this year.
