Secondary School

This year as part of NAISAK’s World Book Day celebrations, Secondary School students were invited to share their love for literature by having their picture taken with their favourite book for a special World Book Day display. To promote reading for pleasure, students are regularly invited to discuss and share, within class and at home, their preferred texts and to consider why they have found a particular novel engaging.

Students in Key Stage 3 were encouraged to focus on a varied range of literature by taking part in an activity that required them to focus on different genres including, dystopian literature, adventure novels and classical literary texts. The activity enabled students to see how familiar they were with different genres and how well read they are in terms of having read different popular literary titles, in addition to encouraging students to consider what their preferred genre might be. The activity was team-basedand therefore supported students’ development in a range of soft skills including collaboration, communication, problem solving and leadership.

Our Year 7 pupils had the opportunity to partner up with students from Year 5 to support their reading skills and engage in discussion about their favourite books and what they enjoy about studying literature in Secondary School. The paired reading activity was a great way for students to focus on some of our ‘High Five Values’ including Aim High, Be Nice and Accept Responsibility.

In Secondary School, we continue to encourage students to read for pleasure in order to support the development of their reading age, their comprehension skills, their ability to infer and deduce, their ability analyse and improve their overall critical thinking skills. These skills are all transferable to other subjects and will support students’ success both in and out of the classroom.
