Students are reflecting on the goals they set in November.
Grade 4 and 5 selection for Seisen Book Bowl team begins.
As we are now approximately midway to voting for the Sakura Books, students are currently reflecting on the goals they set in November with regard to how many books they have read. The final voting will take place in April. Many girls have partially completed their goal. A few girls have already shown great enthusiasm and commitment and have reached their goals. They could say “I’m finished” but now they have decided to read more! Congratulations girls. Those who did not commit to this programme are asked to complete a reading goal based on how many books they will read from the library.
It is also the time when we select girls from Grade 4 and 5 who will be part of the Seisen Book Bowl team. We will be competing in April with 11 other schools from the Tokyo area. Being part of this team will require commitment and independence as each girl will be responsible to become an expert for two books from the English Chapter book list (see below). Girls will meet during their lunch times so we can eat together and then practice for the various rounds. The final competition team will consist of 12 girls but there may be more girls in the practice teams. The first meeting for those interested is in the ES library on 1st February.
Parental support is vital for the girls who make the team and we ask that you can support your daughter and the team on the day of the competition. This will be at St Mary’s this year on Friday 20th April.
