Good luck to­day, Miallo!

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS @SCHOOL -

SE­LECTED stu­dents in Years 4-6 at Miallo State School con­trib­uted to its stu­dent-led ‘Lit­er­a­ture Cir­cle’ read­ing pro­gram, in which par­tic­i­pants read the same novel or au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, and un­pack its lit­er­ary fea­tures and themes.

As part of Miallo’s Literacy Ex­ten­sion Pro­gram, ‘Lit­er­a­ture Cir­cles’ has been suc­cess­fully chal­leng­ing high level, flu­ent read­ers and ex­tend­ing and sup­port­ing their read­ing skills.

Stu­dents are be­ing en­cour­aged to take charge of their learn­ing while sup­port­ing and in­spir­ing each other.

The pro­gram is based on Har­vey Daniels’ work, sup­ported by the read­ing com­pre­hen­sion ideas of Sheena Cameron and mod­i­fied for our ex­cep­tional stu­dents.

Five of our ‘Lit­er­a­ture Cir­cle’ stu­dents have been se­lected to par­tic­i­pate in the Read­ers’ Cup com­pe­ti­tion to­day (Thurs­day, June 8).

This is a state wide com­pe­ti­tion for young read­ers which is or­gan­ised by the Queens­land Branch of the Chil­dren’s Book Coun­cil of Aus­tralia and held in Cairns.

Our stu­dents will be com­pet­ing along­side 35 oth­ers from the Cairns re­gion, and are read­ing six nov­els in their own time, in or­der to pre­pare. Best of luck to Team Miallo!
