Book week
Last week we celebrated book week at Kapinara Primary School with flair!!!  During the week we had the opportunity to listen and work with Western Australian authors and illustrators including Aska Aska, Kitty Black and Kylie Howarth.

Book Week Assembly by 5P 
Congratulations to Mrs Kylie Powell and her amazing 5P class for their engaging and creative assembly based on the 2021 Book Week theme “New Worlds, Old Worlds, Other Worlds.”  We were transported to literary worlds and reminded how a book can take you anywhere. Congratulations on an awesome assembly!

Book week Parade

On Friday 27th August, staff and students dressed up as a book character and classes paraded around the Basketball courts.  It was fantastic to see the variety of costumes and listen to the children proudly talk about their favourite book and the character they had chosen to dress up as. It’s great to hear children speak passionately about books and reading. After the parade, parents and guests were invited into the library to see the Book week displays by each class.
Special thanks to Kylie Powell for coordinating the  Book week events and Joanne Moore, our Library Officer for organising book week events.

Filmbites’ Drama program

The ‘Filmbites’ Group are currently providing a series of drama lessons for PP to Year 5 over the rest of Term 3. These sessions will take place in the Music room.
‘Filmbites’ Drama program is aligned with the WA curriculum.  The program gives students from PP to Year 5 a fun and solid grounding in Voice, Movement, Role, Situation, Space, Character, Time, Tension, Mood and Relationship, through 45-55 minute modules for each element.
