The Għaxaq Primary Book Club meets every Friday during the mid-day break. We meet in the Literacy Room. Children gather to hear a story being read aloud to them. The aim of read aloud is to instil a love for reading and to demonstrate that reading is fun, important and valued.
Books are pleasurable as well as informative. The setting is informal, everyone is encouraged to sit on cushions while they munch away on their lunches and follow the story. After the read aloud, children are encouraged to share their thoughts on the book and to make connections with what they’ve heard and their everyday lives.
