Book Week Activities Recount
Yesterday, on the 19th of June, the whole of Glenbrae school enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters, presenting their book dioramas and presentations, as well as watching a show.
Last week was book week, so to finish off the interesting week we dressed up as our favourite or main character from one of our favourite books. Every student that dressed up paraded around the school hall, even the staff joined in. The most impressive costumes were awarded a prize.
To showcase our favourite books, we created book dioramas and drawings. Some dioramas were made with figurines, paint, cardboard and other materials. A junior class also made a big drawing of their favourite book, ‘Where the wild things are’ by Maurice Sendak.
At the end of the day, we were entertained by a show called the “Super Duper Show”. Two very wonderful actors presented a story to us about superheroes and books. From the act, I learnt that there are always superheroes around you that are willing to help you when you need them.
Overall I enjoyed all the activities, especially when we presented our dioramas. Since this was our first time doing this, I think it went pretty well. Hopefully in the near future our school will do this again.

Fortnite shouldn’t be allowed to be played in class
Fortnite is a video game which was made by a company called, Epic Games. In my opinion, I think students shouldn’t be allowed to play Fortnite at school or in class. Fortnite shouldn’t be played in class , because in the long term kids could grow up to be antisocial. If the game were to be played at school, then they would be distracted from learning.There is also a chance of kids running into strangers, which could cause problems, such as cyberbullying.
At school we all learn how to make friends and socialize with others. If Fortnite were to be introduced, then students could get addicted and not want to interact with others.
In learning, determination, focus and active listening skills are needed. But of course, like I said earlier, Fortnite is a obstacle in the way of children’s learning. Fortnite could distract the kids mind and make them go off task. How? Because Fortnite is just to addicting and students could keep wanting to go back to it.
If you’ve played Fortnite before, then you would probably know that there is a place where you can chat with people. This is a dangerous feature that could lead to students talking to unknown people. Although most kids would be smart and not even try talk to someone anonymous, there are still some kids who have very curious minds which they cannot stop.
So that was just my opinion of why Fortnite should not be played/taught in class.
