Book Week Celebration 2019

Book Week Celebration 2019 قراءتي مهارتي During Week Six, Al Amanah students joined children all around Australia to celebrate Book Week. This year’s theme is ‘Reading is my secret power!’ and our school chose to celebrate this theme by turning the Super 6 Reading Comprehension Strategies into 6 Reading Super Robots! On Tuesday, parents and grandparents had the opportunity to visit their child or grandchild's class to listen to them read. This was very beneficial to our students, and encourages both the families and the school to work in partnership to help our students improve academically and to value the importance of reading. Thank you to the parents and grandparents who visited our classrooms this week. Throughout the week, students completed many book related activities in class. There was an array of characters from a wide range of Australian authors who mesmerised and captured the attention of all our students. English and Arabic teachers read stories during class time, and students also presented their story sacks to their classes, which they had made as part of homework. On Thursday, students came to school dressed up as a character from a book and participated in the book character parade. One student from each class was selected as having the best costume and story sack! Leading up to Book Week, competitions were run throughout the term to celebrate and acknowledge the value and importance of reading. Library competitions were organised and students were able to complete activities during library time. Congratulations to all participants and winners for their hard work. Entries are on display in the library as a part of new decorations. To continue our Book Week celebration, English and Arabic teachers read stories during class time. What a fabulous week it was. We can’t wait for next year!
