On 7th March 2017, our students, grouped in three different teams, were involved in a challenging and exciting game based on their knowledge about books and authors . The games were loosely based on the Italian TV programme " Per un pugno di libri". After reading Brothers Grimm's fairy tales, they had to answer quiz questions focused on events and characters in these works. They showed great enthusiasm and keen interest in the game which they found enjoyable and entertaining: they really read for fun!
Watch the video here!
Some of the games were:
1)From book to character..... from character to book
Students listen to 10 short passages regarding descriptions about the main characters of well-known novels. Students guess the character to whom the passage refers to and the book in which the character appears
2) From book to author
Some titles of famous novels are read out and students have to find out who the author is
3) Within the tale
Students answer 10 questions on Brothers Grimm's fairy tales
4) Who are the authors?
Students have to answer a few questions about the authors
5)Once upon the time...... the fairy tale
True/false questions about the fairy tale as a literary genre
On this occasion we also kicked off our Permanent Book Market Stall- students brought some spare books of their own to be exchanged throughout the school year.
