My class with Carolyn the librarian, at the Kapiti library.

During the last week, my class has been regularly visiting the local Kapiti Library which is right on our school doorstep. We’ve been working with Carolyn, a librarian who has special skills and knowledge in the children’s part of the library. She has been teaching the class about different parts of the library. We have been taking our Chromebooks too. After our library lessons, we then do our classwork using online programs such as Reading Eggs and Studyladder. My class is really enjoying working outside the walls of their classroom, and using local amenities as an extension of their classroom.
