RFE Poster (International Literacy Day)

LI: to raise awareness of international literacy day.

On the 8th of September, it is the international Literacy Day where everyone around the world celebrates the day and takes their time to acknowledge literacy. Being able to read and writie gives people a huge advantage. Literacy enriches lives, word knowledge and creates opportunities for people to develop skills that will help them provide for themselves and their family.

It is estimated that if people read for 20 minutes everyday, they are seeing 1,800,000 words per school year, whereas people who read books for 5 minutes everyday, are only getting 282,000 words per school year.

I found this activity interesting because it persuades me that reading is important daily, and it builds our vocabulary words each time we read. 

Queen Elizabeth II

LI: to research the reign of the royal family.

Today we have been looking at the history of Queen Elizabeth II. We thought of questions that we had in mind, to research about and get more information into the Royal family. We did this research to give respect to our well honoured Queen who has been in the longest reigning monarch for Britain. Each group looked at her background, example: at what year or age she became the Queen of England.
A new information I have found was how she was only 25 years old when she was crowned as Queen.
I found this activity interesting because it allowed me to get more knowledge on the Royal family, and some interesting facts about Queen Elizabeth.
