Our SUIS Book Week was very exciting with a daily quiz and a huge book fair. This yearwe also had storytelling, a reading competition, door decoration and avariety of creative activities.
The vocabulary and idiom dress-up day costumes were quite impressive and creative too!On top of that, we had costume parades during assembly times.
We were lucky to have an entertaining storyteller, Carl Gough, all the way from Wales. He encouraged our students to engage in storytelling through the atmospheric use of his drone flute. Some of our Grade 5 students also participated in a workshop where they learned what makes spooky stories spooky.
We welcomed Mr. Peng Yi, a famous children's literature writer, translator and picture books expert, who gave a wonderful presentation about his ‘Fantastic Journey on Paper’ to the students of Grade One and Grade Two.
He was the guide of his fantasy journey, opening the door of fantasy to children with humor and emotion. Not only were children completely immersed in the world of fantasy stories, but they also learned how to read picture books in different ways. We look forward to meeting Mr.Peng Yi again in his fantasy books.
We also invited two famous actors from Debase theater company in Australia, Liz Skitch and Clint Bolster, to present afantastic comedy. They turned waiting into a game with imagination and creativity, which brought us great fun.
