ENGLISH Week 2019

 

We had a host of activities to mark English Week which was held from 11th to 15th March 2019.

POP-UP DISPLAYS
A variety of displays revolving around the theme “Print to Screen” popped up around the school in the weeks leading up to this week.

   Students were intrigued by the pop-ups and learnt more about the theme through the display boards put up.


CHARACTER PARADE
As part of the launch, some of our teachers and school leaders marched in a character parade.

ASSEMBLY TALK
We also had Mr Phillip Lim, director of some productions like ‘The Teenage Textbook Movie’, ‘The Diary of Amos Lee’ and ‘The ExLosers’, share his experiences with us during assembly.

PICNIC IN THE HALL
During today’s recesses, we screened an excerpt from the movie ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ as part of our inaugural “Picnic in the Hall” today. Available picnic mats were snapped up quickly and our students enjoyed their food and movie!

WEEK-LONG GAMES
We also kicked off two games that students can take part in. In “The Sphinx’s Riddles”, students have to fill in a crossword puzzle using clues that will be released on the English notice board during the week. 
In “The Hunt for Mr/Ms Who”, students have to keep a lookout for “Print to Screen” characters who will appear during before/after school and during recess. If they identify the character correctly, they will receive a stamp on their game card. When they collect 3 stamps in a row – horizontally, vertically or diagonally – they stand a chance to win a prize!

WE LOVE READING!
The NLB was invited to carry out a mass borrowing session over Tuesday and Wednesday. Some students took the opportunity to borrow books that were related to the theme. The books in our GROW library were also tagged so that students could easily identify the related books if they wanted to explore the theme further.

ACTIVITY BOOTHS DURING RECESS
In collaboration with parents from the Parent Support Group, activity booths were set up in the foyer during recess to further engage students. They could dress up in costumes and take photographs at the photo booth, make crafts from recycled materials or participate in an ICT-based game that challenged their knowledge of “Print to Screen” characters.

DRESS-UP DAY & CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES

The event ended off with a bang as students came dressed in costumes or brought along props related to the theme. They also participated in classroom activities during their English lessons which saw them comparing excerpts of texts and movies and discussing the similarities and differences between them.
