Book Week is one of the most popular and fun events at YCIS Chongqing. To complement the excellent reading programme at each year level, each year the school takes the opportunity to promote a ‘love of reading’ and, ‘How to make a habit of reading’, around campus and in the wider community.
The week of 16th – 21st March was our scheduled ‘Book Week’ and ‘Book Fair’ event on the School Calendar. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, it has been impossible to host any physical events on the campus to celebrate these events in 2020, which means we have missed the book character parade, reading competitions, as well as the library visit to our favorite book characters, which was to be ‘Alice in Wonderland’. But that does not mean our love of books can go uncelebrated as we welcome you to our ‘e-Book Week’!
Our staff have been particularly creative hosting the first YCIS Chongqing e-Book Week event, celebrating a love of reading across all year levels at YCIS Chongqing through the ‘cloud’. We invited students, staff and our parents to take part in the ‘Extreme reading challenge’ to celebrate Book Week. Everyone shared a photo of themselves reading in an ‘extreme’ situation to showcase their commitment to language learning. Teachers also shared their photos with a book they recommended to the students, which included fiction, non-fiction, and more than you could imagine.
Our lovely Primary students were also encouraged to share their favorite book, draw a picture, write a book review, record themselves reading it, introduce characters in the story, and dress up as a character from the book.
The event ended with the announcement of the winners of the competition, with their most creative and fun pose!
No one can say this year’s e-Book Week was less fun and as a community, we feel we are all together, hand in hand in the “cloud”! Go YCIS Chongqing!
