Program Description

Do you love action, adventure, and fantasy? Does your imagination run wild most of the time? NPE’s latest online Book Club is the perfect program for you! In Term 3 we will be reading an incredible kids' fantasy book "Wings of Fire"- The Dragonet Prophecy. Let's follow these dragonets through a series of amazing adventures- friendship, prejudice, sacrifice...The book has well-developed characters, a great plot and deeper themes with many twists and surprises! At the Book Club, you will dive deep into the fascinating world of books, at the same time sharpening crucial literary analysis and reading comprehension skills. Book clubs create space for children to talk, ask questions, and interact with peers on a level that other reading groups in school or at home often can’t. These discussions are facilitated by NPE Learning Facilitator and presented in a way that is accessible for children and gives them the space to uncover the story independently and as a team. Each week before class students will read between 1 and 3 chapters. Then as a group we’ll meet and discuss what we’ve all read. We will also examine a few selected paragraphs for literary analysis and reading comprehension in the class. The weekly class will include book quizzes, group work which will include character explanations, summarisation and critical literary analysis. And lastly a short writing or sharing exercise linked or relating to the chapters, plot points, and in some cases deep literary meaning.
