Yr 8 are studying Macbeth. What lovely work by one of our Gibberdians. Why ? Themes he explores are just as relevant today. They are related to basic human nature, which remains constant regardless of evolutionary, industrial or scientific developments. https://t.co/kd5C63jxOs

Reading given own lesson on timetable

Reading given own lesson on timetable

Posted: 14th December 2020

Reading is taken so seriously at Sir Frederick Gibberd College, it has its own lesson on the timetable.

Time is allotted in each school day for students to focus on their reading.

Students are read to by a member of staff and discuss books, explore vocabulary and complete word banks, as well as taking quizzes on the books they are reading to assess their comprehension and to encourage reading for pleasure.

Mizgin Koker, English teacher and reading lead, said: “We love reading at Sir Frederick Gibberd College.

“We have a diverse reading curriculum and each reading class enjoys reading three sets of novels throughout the academic year.”

Students in Year 7 are reading Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman in class.

Amelia said: “I really this book. It teaches us how prejudices can come in different forms. I like how the novel has many plot twists and each chapter ends with lots of cliff-hangers.

“It’s also really fun to read as a class!”

The school also encourages students to enter local and national writing competitions and provides recommended reading lists, as well as providing a selection of free ebooks for students to read.

Students marked National Poetry Day by writing and performing their own work in class. The winner from each class performed in a virtual whole school assembly and an overall winner was chosen by each class voting for their favourite performer.
