Our literary year is off to a great start!

Our literary year is off to a great start! The pupils from Classes E and F have been reading two engaging science fiction novels: The Giver and Ender’s Game.
 
The Giver by Lois Lowry portrays a futuristic, seemingly utopian society with no pain, suffering, or violence. Over the course of the book, however, the community’s dark side is revealed…
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card is a high-energy read that makes it difficult to put down. It’s packed full of many of the classic features of science fiction: alien invasions, predicting advanced technologies, a moral lesson which serves as a warning to humans today…
Through this genre, the pupils are honing their analytical skills in literacy class by reading a variety of texts from this genre and by experimenting with tension and suspense writing using imagery. Debating and presentational skills are also practised as they consider ethical dilemmas and current issues such as cloning and climate change.
