Book Week Scotland 21st-26th November
P3 will be celebrating Book Week Scotland next week. Due to other exciting reading activities we will not be following our normal reading schedule. I will not be sending reading home. Instead, I would like children to read for enjoyment or share books together as a family. Children should aim to read for 20 minutes each night. See below for further information.
- I would like children to bring a book in next week to read for enjoyment (if you don’t have a new one or you forget then there are plenty in school to borrow). In addition to this, I would like them to bring in their favourite book. If they could keep it in school for the week that would be great.
- In class we will be using the ipads to create ‘book trailers’ in groups (like film trailers), writing book reviews on our favourite books, creating book marks for the library visit and recommending books to each other.
- Children will be asked if they want to do a really short informal book talk. It will be a little like show and tell but for book recommendations. They should introduce their book, say why they like it, why they would recommend it to other children and read a very small excerpt from it. I will speak to children about this next week and then send a little slip home so they can prepare.
- On Friday 26th we will end the week with an exciting visit to Loanhead Library.
