Book/ Literacy Week at Kuwait National English School Primary Department- 10th -14th March 2019
The Primary Department of Kuwait National English School hosted a successful Book/Literacy Week from the 10th - 14th March 2019. At Kuwait National English School, we aim to equip every child with the skills and enthusiasm to become confident readers and writers. To support our pupils reading skills, we use a wide range of Phonics Schemes and Reading programmes and Skills builder’s books in grammar are used to support spelling, punctuation and grammar.
Many activities were planned during the week to encourage and inculcate in pupils throughout the school an everlasting love for reading. Pupils participated in many activities including: reading, dictionary games and activities, book scavenger hunt, book reviews, musical book games, book mark making, book cover designing, buddy reading, creating a book wish list, library in a box, library search, poster competition, speech contests, poetry reading, etc.
The weeks activities culminated in a character dress-up day in Primary where pupils dressed up as characters from their favourite books in celebration of their favourite authors and illustrators. This was a perfect opportunity for parents, teachers and children to join together in appreciation of the world of literature and the life-long pleasure of reading. Pupils showed off their costumes and reading skills during the character parade.
Pupils were awarded certificates for their efforts in all the activities at the character parade assembly in the Primary school.
