Two 8-year-old boys with very different things to say about the topic (while reading Black Beauty).
Our Highflyer and Voyager kids are reading Black Beauty from April to June 2021.
“…there is no religion without love, and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast, it is all a sham…”
Our SkyWalker kids are reading Robinson Crusoe from April to September 2021.
Robinson Crusoe is one of the world’s most popular adventure stories. Daniel Defoe based his classic tale of survival on an uninhabited island on a true story.
Even today, the story remains relevant and meaningful for the following reasons:
1) Impact of Nature.
Nature controls Robinson Crusoe despite his best efforts but also inspires and challenges him. Crusoe’s journey of self-discovery occurs entirely through his association with nature, until the point when the man he calls Friday arrives.
2) His relationship with Friday.
Crusoe forms the deepest friendship of his life with Friday, a man he rescued from death.
3) Being thankful.
We realise again and again, the need to be thankful for what we have and not to be greedy.
Our students acquire good English skills speedily and naturally by way of constant usage. They are teased into a READING HABIT from Day One and in good time, they are able to derive joy from expressing their thoughts in writing.
Here’s a picture of our SkyWalker kids immersed in their lesson. Most of them are from age 6 to 8, and they are reading stories like Robinson Crusoe and King Solomon’s Mines while learning to construct proper sentences.
