Primary Students enjoyed taking part in Global Library

Children in Years 4, 5 and 6 have recently been enjoying taking part in the Global Library. This is a worldwide book club designed to encourage students to read a wide range of classic and contemporary books, and share their experiences and ideas with their peers around the world.

The Global Campus has provided a reading list of twenty books aimed at children in each key stage. Books have been chosen from a range of genres from around the world. There is also a range of difficulty levels so children can find titles for themselves which are accessible and challenging. Students can read as many titles as possible over the school year, in library lessons, in class or at home. Our books are displayed in the primary school library (see photograph of display above).

After reading each title, students can log onto the Global Campus website and answer a multiple choice quiz, to check their knowledge of the book. They can also post comments in the forum to discuss issues raised in the book.

Some of the books enjoyed most by our pupils so far have been: Goth Girl, The Red Bicycle, Alphabetics, How to Make the Universe in 92 ingredients, The Death of the Hat and Wonder.

Certificates have been awarded for participation in the Global Library online in term 1. Additional awards will be presented to children who continue to answer quizzes and post in forums, as well as for those who have read 5 or more books. We hope teachers, parents and pupils continue to enjoy using the Global Library!
