The Global Campus Primary library books have now arrived! This is a worldwide book club launched last year to encourage students in Nord Anglia Education’s 43 schools to read a wide range of classic and contemporary books and share their experiences and ideas with their peers in 15 countries around the world.
Students can read as many of the titles as they can from their age group (under 8 or 8-11) over the course of the school year (see Global Library Reading List below). This could be through library periods, free reading time in class, lunch and break time, extracurricular groups or at home. There is a wide range of genres so students will encounter classic and contemporary fiction from around the world, poetry collections, non-fiction and graphic novels. There is a range of difficulty levels so students should find a mixture of titles that are accessible and challenging. Some of these books were introduced to years 5 and 6 in 5EN and 5CG’s assembly (see photographs above).
After reading each title, students can log on to the Global Campus via moodle: https://shunyi.learn.nae.school/login/index.php (using pupil login) and participate in the Global Library online in the following ways:
There is a chart in the primary library, which students can use to keep a tally of the books they have read. When students reach key milestones of having read 5, 15 and 20 books, they will be awarded a Bronze, Silver and Gold Global Library certificate respectively. We hope our pupils enjoy reading these new and exciting books, and benefit from sharing their experiences with Nord Anglia students around the world.
