“READING IS A WAY FOR ME TO EXPAND MY MIND OPEN MY EYES AND FILL UP MY HEART” -OPRAH WINFREY

“THE ONLY THING THAT YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO KNOW IS THE LOCTAION OF THE LIBRARY” -ALBERT EINSTEIN

The pupils at WASCZ Primary undoubtedly believe and work on these sayings and these are positively reinforced by our teachers. Pupils walk to the library everyday excited looking forward to finding their next read. The fact is, books and reading are a part of their everyday life here at WASCZ.

Students have been excited to take part in BOOK CLUB ECA and consider this to be a great opportunity to showcase their love and passion for books, their favorite genres, and authors. 

The students of a class are divided into smaller groups and under the guidance of a teacher they read in turns after which they do linguistics-based activities like Word Searches, Crosswords, Treasure Hunt, Story sequencing etc. related to that book to explore and understand their reading and understanding.

The Accelerated Reader quiz (commonly known to students as “AR Quiz”) has had a fantastic impact on their reading comprehension levels. They undertake this quiz after they have read through their book, noting down new words they come across. These quizzes have a positive impact and encourage them to read more and more.

This is the time where the pupils choose a favorite book to share with their classmates. The book is either read by the teacher or children love to read them with their friends.

The first step of truly knowing a book is knowing more about its author. This term we have begun “Author of the Week”, where we pick a particular famous author such as Roald Dahl, Julia Donaldson, Eric Carle, Enid Blyton , J.K Rowling etc.  and we research about their lives and learn more about their backgrounds and what inspired them to write their stories. This helps the students to widen their knowledge on various authors and genres which were not known to them before.
