We had our second appearance on TV. But this time it was on the TV of Eastern Slovakia. They were interested in the activities we are working on, in the Erasmus + project which is in progress. You can see the report (on the 5:30 minutes) here!
On the walls of our school have appeared new posters connected with the competition WALL READING. Now the excerpts are from fantasy books popular among the students. There are different posters in English language and Slovak language again. The students have links on our school web site and can answer the questions. The students started to compete immediately and they are eager to read and win. The completion takes place until 23. June 2017.
On Thursday 23. March 2017 students from 1.B, 2.B. 3.B and sexta, took part in an amazing „book day“ in the local library Gemerská knižnica Pavla Dobšinského in Rožňava. The activities were prepared by our teachers Eva Szanyiová, Tatiana Chocholová and Lýdia Kalinová. March is the month of books so our teachers wanted to liven our lessons up.
The first group of students worked with wonderful paintings and a wonderful fantasy story in English language. The second group of students was working with a heart breaking but a wonderful story with Mrs. Kalinová. And the biggest surprise was the perfect book hunting competition led by Mrs. Szanyiová. The students were divided into groups and we were looking for books with the help of different hints. We were competing with each other. One hint led us to the other one we were having a feeling to be real detectives. There were not only Slovak books but as well English ones involved. The boys from the 1.B won with perfect time and perfect knowledge about fantasy. Excitement, a lot of entertainment, unforgettable time and love towards books!
On 17. March 2017 some students of our school took part in a book presentation in the local library. The presentation was made by the author of the book: ABS book of health. Ján Zbojek, the author of the book, introduced the students his idea of the health system which reveals different causes of illnesses and his simple view of the heart of health. The foundations of his book are the pillars of health, he would like to enhance young people to keep these pillars and thus they can improve their own health condition. The author focused on students and recommended them to read this book. The interview was breathtaking and the author´s presentation was appealing. He was talking not only about the content of the book but he included information about the structure of the book and the language also.
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.
