Reading Ambassadors Venture out into Beijing

Reading Ambassadors Venture out into Beijing

The Excellent Readers are busy being ambassadors for the virtues and challenges of reading fiction: something increasingly important in our world where many different things vie for attention. One brilliant statement on the power of reading to inspire can be found at the amazing website: www.bookstoreadbsb.weebly.com  (founded and maintained by Claire Shannon-Vermillion and BSB alumni Alyssa Elliott).

Inspiring our students to read or submit book reviews, to showcase their own writing skills and discuss their love of literature, this website provides something for any student.  They have also include quizzes, information on authors, info on the books included in Battle of the Books competition and videos. With a professional design, we are proud of their achievement.

See Ms Harrison, Mr Anderson or Ms Jiang for more information.

Creating Creepy Interactive Fiction with Year 6 and Year 9

Deep in the unknown coldness of darkened wood stands a haunted house. Tucked away, it is difficult to find. But find it our Year 6s and Year 9s did, with interesting consequences...

Over several weeks a select band of intrepid students from Year 6 and Year 9 have been working together in our theatre on creating interactive fiction in the style of the 'Choose your Own Adventure' books of the 1980s and 1990s. .

Mathilde of Mr Cottrell's class told us that, “It was really interesting and fun. It was something so different.” Macie told us that “working with older children gave us a new perspective on English.” Perhaps most important, Kane declared: “Fun, fantastic and different! I really enjoyed it.”

Mr Anderson’s class were glad to work with the younger students. Aliisa was perceptive about this project is helps her to improve her own writing: "Teaching the students helps us to really know how to use writing techniques ourselves. It's one thing to just use them: it's another thing to teach someone else how to use them!"

Deborah told us, “I wanted to talk to the Year 6s as if they were me at that age. Knowing some of these writing techniques would help me write even better!”

Watch this space to read the final story, if you dare...
