Book Week at St. Francis College

St. Francis College Library is pleased to announce that our yearly BOOK WEEK CELEBRATION is coming up VERY soon!

From the 30th of September through to the 4th of October the Early Years and Primary will be engaged in many exciting and stimulating activities related to books and reading.

 

Among these activities, one of them is that parents can book a slot with their child's class teacher, to come and read to their child's class. Children will be encouraged to participate in the bookmark competition and our famous BOOK BUCK activity will be also taking place. 

So start clearing up your bookshelves now!

TIRED OF THE SAME OLD STORIES? 

Come and take part in the BOOK BUCK activity!  All you have to do is bring a book that you do not want anymore and exchange it for another one. If you don't immediately find something to your liking, you will receive a BOOK BUCK DOLLAR, which you keep and can return another day to find something else!

 

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!!

MYP 5 Portuguese

Os alunos do MYP 5 se inspiraram em Mariana do Alcoforado para escrever, no português contemporâneo, cartas de amor com características do Barroco como o exagero na expressão dos sentimentos, pessimismo e contraste de ideias.

PYP 6 Portuguese - Cordel

Durante a primeira unidade, o PYP 6 investigou o conceito de cultura e como seus elementos influenciam a nossa identidade. Nas aulas de Português, os alunos aprenderam sobre a literatura de cordel, identificaram-na como parte da cultura de nosso país e compreenderam a sua grande importância literária. Para enriquecer a investigação e ampliar o repertório dos alunos, nossos bedéis, Josué e Pedrina, compartilharam suas vivências com as crianças, com muito entusiasmo e sabedoria. Josué leu cordéis que aprendeu com sua família em Pernambuco. Pedrina falou sobre a cultura nordestina, ressaltando a importância da Festa Junina. O encontro foi uma grande oportunidade de aprendizado para todos.

 

‘’O cordel é diferente

  Do repente improvisado 

  O cordel é sempre escrito

  Em folheto e declamado 

  O repente é improviso 

  Sem ter nada decorado.’’

 

A estrofe acima faz parte do livro "Vida rima com Cordel" (César Obeid - Editora Salesiana)
