1970-01-01 08:00:00




The scene at MIS this week different. Each morning when students and staff hear the alarm, they stop whatever they are doing and read!  Stop, drop everything and read! (DEAR) 


Reading is more than a hobby, it’s part of life, a way to engage and immerse oneself in fiction or fact.    


At MIS we launched (DEAR) sessions this week as part of MIS Book Week 2020.




What is MIS Book Week?

Welcome to Book Week 2020 for MIS! Book Week is about celebrating our love of reading at school, and we are encouraging any type of reading - from novels to comics, and in any language as well. The beauty of reading is that it allows us to travel through time and experience different people's cultures, histories, and lives. It also helps us develop a wider vocabulary and improve our language skills. Finally, it also lets us step into the shoes of another person, learn to be open-minded and see things from a different perspective. At MIS, the English and EAL departments have introduced a number of competitions to engage students in reading and express their love for reading, many MIS staff members are also participating in it. Students will also be able to earn Clan points for the year by participating in these activities with their Clan mates, so get reading, MIS! 



In honour of this year's Book Week, we  organised  a lot of fun and interesting activities.  



  HIGHLIGHTS 1  

"Get Caught Reading"


Where do you read? On a chair? in bed? No? MIS students were encouraged to send pictures of their unique reading places and the winner with the best photo will win points for their Clan. 



  HIGHLIGHTS 2  

"Who's Behind the Book?"


"Who's Behind the Book?" have a look at the displays around the campus to guess which staff member is hiding behind each of their favorite books. The top five winners also win points for their Clans. 



  HIGHLIGHTS 3  

Guest Readers From Our Community


A popular activity this week was held on Tuesday. Our English department invited guest readers from all the staff members to pick a book that means something to them and read to their Seniors group. Later our Juniors MISPA Class Representatives enjoyed reading with Juniors students. 



  HIGHLIGHTS 4  

"Joint reading"


English lessons focused on fun for reading. Teachers arranged "Joint Juniors/Seniors Reading" activities so that students could share their  favorite  stories with one another.   



  HIGHLIGHTS 5  

Roald Dahl for Juniors


Juniors are learning about Roald Dahl. Each year group is studying a different Roald Dahl book, completing various activities: buddy reading, baking, painting, drama, character analysis, plot development.   



Our annual Book Week at MIS shares the significance of reading from Early Years right through to Year 13. The value, joy and potential of reading as a tool for imagination and enlarging one's world is simply incredible.

曼校本周新气象。


每天早上当学生和员工听到音乐响起,就要立刻抛开手上正在做的事情,停下来拿起一本书开始阅读!


阅读不仅仅是一个爱好,是生活的一部分,是一种带入灵魂去体验和感受情节与时空交错的方式。 


2020年曼校图书周活动于本周正式启动。 





曼校图书周有哪些精彩活动呢?

欢迎加入曼校图书周活动!


为了展示曼校师生对阅读的热爱,弘扬开卷有益精神(曼校鼓励师生阅读各种体裁类型的读物—从小说到漫画)以及表达对不同语言读物的热爱,图书周活动应运而生。


阅读的美妙之处在于文字能够带你穿越时空,体验不同民族的文化、历史和生活。阅读丰富了我们词汇量,提升了语言表达技巧,而更为重要的是读书使人明志,学会换位思维,设身处地为他人着想,敞开心扉进行多角度观察。


本次曼校图书周,英语和英语非母语教学团队组织了一系列的比赛以捕捉曼校学子阅读时的精彩瞬间,教职工们也纷纷加入比拼。在比赛中获胜的学生还可以为自己所在的Clan赢得积分,因此跟自己的Clan朋友一起去阅读吧。


从这一刻开始阅读吧!加油吧小书虫!



本学年的图书周,我们组织了很多逸趣横生的活动 !来一起看看都有哪些吧! 



  亮点 1  

 捕捉阅读的精彩瞬间!


你会在哪里读书呢?在凳子上?在床上?曼校学生无所不能,我们鼓励曼校学生提交一张照片展示自己有趣或不寻常的阅读时刻,我们将选出最具创意的照片并给予积分奖励。 



  亮点 2  

有奖竞猜-“猜猜书后的人是谁 "


猜猜书后的人是谁?学生们需要查看桌上摆放的照片,猜出藏在书后的老师是谁?前五名提交正确答案的学生将为自己所在Clan获得积分奖励。



  亮点 3  

曼校社区里最会讲故事的人


图书周中最受欢迎的一项活动是在星期二的时候,英语教学团队邀请了曼校教职工当中最会讲故事的一群人,带上自己觉得最有意义的一本书,到中学各个班级进行读书分享。而后,小学也邀请了家委会的班级代表们前来学校和小学生们共享读书好时光。 



  亮点 4  

小学部/中学部学生联合阅读


英语课注重阅读的趣味性,老师们安排了“小学部/中学部学生联合阅读”活动,让不同年级的学生们彼此分享他们最喜欢的故事。 



  亮点 5  

阅读罗尔德·达尔系列丛书


作为读书周的“款待”,我们准备了罗尔德·达尔(英国杰出儿童文学作家、剧作家、短篇小说作家)系列作品提供给小学生们尽情领略书中精彩,同时学生们也体验了各种阅读相关活动:伙伴阅读、烘焙、绘画、戏剧、人物分析、剧情发展等。 



在曼校我们每年都举办图书周活动,这是为了提醒全校的师生阅读给生活带来的独特意义。阅读让你能够发挥想象力,拓展视野,其价值、乐趣和开发潜能的意义将持续终身。
