Book Week took place in SBN from the 31st of May to the 4th of June.
All our classes took part in activities throughout the week to promote and develop the love of reading. These activities included DEAR Time (Drop Everything And Read), Google Meets between classes to discuss books and read stories, class quizzes, word searches, making bookmarks and drawing illustrations for books.
Various classes also worked with picture books to develop comprehension skills. Younger classes took part in a colouring competition designing a new book cover for their favourite book. Older classes took part in a creative writing competition. They wrote short stories based on themes and activities happening in their individual classes.
