Book Fair and Author Visit: Nick Arnold

15 November 2018

This week, the children in NACIS had the opportunity to visit a Book Fair in our Library. All the students had a chance to browse many kinds of books and buy one especially for themselves. There were many options from 3D books to chapter books, factual to fiction and everything in between. It catered for every type of reader with picture and activity books for the younger readers to the classics for the older children. There was great excitement on all the children’s faces as they browsed through the books and found their favorite authors or genres of books, with many children wanting to bring more money to school the following day to buy more books. This opportunity should be taken to thank the organizers for travelling the world looking for the best books from each country, setting up and running a successful book fair.

This Wednesday, Grade 3, 4 and 5 had an incredible learning experience. They were lucky enough to be visited by Nick Arnold, the world renowned author of the Horrible Science range of books. Nick has been writing his books for over 20 years and is an absolute expert in Horrible Science.

Whilst he was with the children, he taught them about a range of different scientific topics including air pressure, gravity and centrifuge. It was a really interactive show which saw children getting involved with experiments, answering questions and winning prizes. The students really got engaged in the challenges he presented and really enjoyed the scientific journey they were taken on. Hopefully, this experience will have inspired the children reading interest even further and also planted some seeds for some of the worlds’ future scientists!

Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Encourage the children to read these books for you at home to get points for their Red Ted reading journals.
