Our Book Week Event, held between 13 – 15 September 2022, was bursting with excitement! Children from playgroup to kindergarten were exceptionally excited and eager to meet their friends during these three days. Kinderland planned the event with the intention to trigger our children’s imagination and allow them to get into their favourite book character. The event activities enhanced our students’ language and literacy skills and stirred their creativity and imagination.
Our playgroup, pre-nursery and nursery students were happy to stride and pose for their friends in their favourite character costumes. Our nursery children were engaged with art and craft, followed by a show-and-tell, to reinforce their learning of their favourite character. The showcase boosted the child’s self-confidence.

The all-awaited highlight of the event was the ‘Cozy with a book’ session. Our kindergarteners wore their most beloved pyjamas and snuggled up with their favourite toy for a story-telling session. Students paraded confidently in their costumes during the ‘Book Character Parade’, while impersonating the character from various storybooks.

The kindergarteners also made ‘Character Bags’ by creating a picture of their favourite character outside the bag. Words written on the bag described what the nature was on the inside. This activity helped them form a deeper understanding of the book character’s personality.
