BIPS Celebrates International Literacy

On the 8th of September, 2020, BIPS joined in celebrating International Literacy Day. This year’s International Literacy Day focused on “Literacy teaching and learning in the COVID-19 crisis and beyond,” especially on the role of educators and changing pedagogies. The theme highlights literacy learning in a lifelong learning perspective.

In 1966, UNESCO declared the 8th of September as International Literacy Day. This means that International Literacy Day has been celebrated for over 50 years. UNESCO aims for this day to remind people everywhere that literacy is a human right and is the key to basic education for everyone.

Each class at BIPS demonstrated an appreciation of the International Literacy Day.

  • Reception class celebrated International Literacy Day by sharing their home book collections.
  • Year 1 class celebrated International Literacy Day by doing a Book Review. Students listened and watched a video of a story entitled “The Gruffalo” by Julia Donaldson.
  • Year 2/3 decided to dedicate their energy on creating bookmarks. This is because bookmarks help to keep track of pages in a book! Read a book and be free!
  • Year 4 designed an interesting and colourful book cover that someone would be eager to pick up and read.
  • Year 5s designed posters to show how important reading and writing is to the world.
  • Year 6 students made poems on the value of reading. The authors inspired these poems: Jane Baskwill and Susan Jones.
