Literacy Month – Reading Tent Buddies

Just after the First Term break, on Monday, 17th October 2016, Grade 4 students got to meet Lower Primary students in an activity organized for the Literacy Month – Reading Tent Buddies.

They changed into their pajamas for this two-period reading session.

The activity began with all students sitting in pairs (a Grade 4 student with one of the Lower Primary student), then they briefly explained parts of the books – the authors, illustrators, some of the characters and parts of the stories which they found most interesting. One of Grade 4 students had brought an all-time favourite story book so she asked her “reading buddy” to ask Yes-No questions about the book and finally guessed what the title of the book was.

Afterwards, all students sat for a story-telling session by Mr. Robert Davis. He read “The Gruffalo” and “The Gruffalo’s Child” which were written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

Then, they had another session with their “reading buddies” for each to read the book to his or her buddy. Some Grade 4 students also taught their “reading buddies” how to read some unfamiliar words.
