Reading competition on the 200th birthday of Arany János

On the 200th anniversary of Arany János - the Hungarian poet our school is named after- we organised a reading competition for the 7th and 8th grade primary school students of Százhalombatta. We worked on William Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream, which was translated into Hungarian by Arany János.
On the other hand, students read the text in English in an easier version and competed in groups of four completing several tasks based on the common reading.

The participants completed 8 tasks ranging from quiz questions through crossword to matching original quotes with modernised ones. 

During the final activity each team was given a chapter from the text and they needed to create a wordcloud and an illustration to that part of the story and also needed to give a mini presentation using their created materials.

 It was a really enjoyable afternoon and our students could develop their communication and language skills while cooperating with their peers on various activities. We will try to organise events like this in the future as well!
