Harrow Book Week

Reading allows us to be transported from our world to another. Between the pages of a book, we can become immersed in the lives of fictional characters and learn about a culture entirely different from our own. The importance of reading for children cannot be underestimated. Reading for pleasure can benefit a child’s education, social and cognitive development, their wellbeing, and their mental health.

这一周,我们是小作家,用笔触写下天马行空的英雄故事;我们是设计师,用画笔将光怪陆离的想象与灵感,埋藏在书籍封面设计里。这一周,我们脑洞大开,装扮成最炫酷的书籍人物;我们住进了《哈利波特》中的对角巷,体验巫师棋、占卜与奇妙魔咒。这一周,我们与当代儿童作家、诗人云会面,零距离探讨写作与阅读;我们与书友们在读书俱乐部,快意畅谈读书的心得与体会。这一周,有太多的道不尽的惊喜!话不多说,让我们一同查看本周的精彩瞬间,走近哈罗读书周的奇异世界!

Ms St Clair-Ford (Acting Head of Senior School and Whole School Literacy Coordinator) put together a fun, varied and educational Harrow Book Week agenda which our students and staff have loved. Do enjoy her introductory video.

Early Years Reading ignites creativity, sparks curiosity, and stimulates the imagination in young children. Often, this leads to role-play as children grow which helps to develop other skills such as empathy, problem-solving, and morality.
