On the 1st of February it was Wold Read Aloud Day. Our Grade 4 class had a reading session with the Department of Education Library commune. The purpose of this day is to allow children from all over South Africa to dedicate the day into reading aloud.
The event was started after the results of a global literacy study that revealed about 78% of Grade 4 children in South Africa cannot read for meaning in any language.
Thank you to the DOE Library commune held at our school, we read books together with our visitors. The grade 4’s really enjoyed the session.
