Primary Department celebrates Book/Reading Week and Book Character Day
At Kuwait National English
School, we cannot stress the importance of reading enough. The Book/Reading
Week was observed from the 16-19 February 2020 with the school librarian and
class teachers hosting numerous events and
activities for KS1 and KS2 making full use of the school
Library and Media Centre to connect
readers with books and celebrate the joy of reading. The week-long
event is an annual celebration of books written for young people, and hopes to
inspire a love of reading.
A special Book Character
Assembly was held on Wednesday, 19 February 2020, where all pupils were given
the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book characters and speak about
them. Year 1 pupils were also involved in Buddy reading and a special Book
Character Assembly with Reception pupils as part of our continuous and seamless
transition programme from EYFS into Year 1.
Buddy reading in Primary is
done throughout the year to create an awareness and to encourage a love for
reading amongst our pupils.
Enthusiastic pupils were
rewarded with certificates for their participation in the various activities.
