Over the next two weeks it is important that you keep reading and learning. Remember that through reading a book you can visit amazing places (real and imagined), learn about amazing people and all of the things that make our world a wonderful place to live in.

Visit your public library or enjoy reading your Duffy books.
This term our focus for Green Week was understanding the Maori world view of Kaitiakitanga.

These books are always in the library. You can read them anytime of the year, not just during Green Week!!!.
