During term 2 a group of Year 7 students has been participating in the Sandringham 7-10 Readers’ Cup.
Students read two books, Chasing the Valley by local author Skye Melki-Wegner and The Golden Day by Australian author Ursula Dubosarsky, they then answered a set of questions on both books and presented a creative piece on the book of their choice. All three groups made high quality movie trailers which were presented at a celebratory morning tea. Students also talked about their favorite book.
21 book club members are currently competing in the 2013 Beaumaris Campus Readers Cup. Book club members have read the books Legend by Marie Lu and Birth of a killer by Darren Shan. 3 teams of 7 have just completed quiz question relating to the two set books. The teams are now working on their creative piece, which they will present to the other members at a special literary luncheon.
Book club is well and truly underway on the Beaumaris Campus. Students are working on The Readers Cup. They have been given two books to read: Legend by Marie Lu and The saga of Larten Crepsley: Birth of a killer by Darren Shan. Once they have read these books they will form teams to compete in the cup. The first part will be answering trivial pursuit type questions based on both books. The Year 10 students in the club will be making these up. They will then be asked to create a piece of work based on one of the books, it could be a poster, a book trailer a picture book, it is up to their creative and imaginative minds. We will then celebrate with a literary lunch.
