Book Week 2014

24 Mar 2014

 Book Week 2014

 
The theme for Book Week this year was, ‘Be awesome! Be a book nut!’  Class III read about endangered animals, Class IV read poetry, Class V researched healthy food and Class VI read biographies. The Read- Aloud sessions by Classes V & VI allowed the children to creatively enact stories, using props and costumes to engage younger listeners.
Teachers from the Middle Section got a flavor of their future students when they  read to the students of Class VI.
The Guest Speaker this year was Ms. Saman Shamsie, author of short stories and two books published by OUP: ‘The Magical Woods’ and ‘The Slothful Slough-off’. She captivated Class VI through her presentation on her life as a reader and read excerpts from her books.
Kitab Publishers organized Storytellers for our Book Week. Their aim is to revive the lost art of storytelling. The Dramatic Reading sessions were delightful for teachers and students alike.
Through the week, a Book Quiz was conducted in the library for all classes. The week’s activities culminated in a ‘Stop and Read’ session for 2014 seconds.
