Book Week

Thu, Nov 1st, 2018

Holy Family Senior School took place in our school from October 22nd. to 25th., 2018. A series of reading activities took place in our school linking with this event. Each afternoon children were given opportunities to do fun, book related activities, listen to audiobooks and the only homework each evening was reading for pleasure. All the children were busily trying to reach their Accelerated Reader targets for this term and each class made a special effort to increase their reading word count. If you can continue to do some shared reading at home we are sure your child would love the help. We awarded
little prizes at the end of the week for those who made a special effort! Second, third and fourth classes had a visit from author David Donohue who has written
the ‘Walter Speazlebud’ series of books. The editor and CEO of the ‘Clare People’ newspaper, Colin McGann called to the 5th class students and talked about the writing process and how a newspaper is put together. He spoke about writing and collecting articles and the journey of the newspaper to when it arrives in our shops. The 6th class children went to the library in early October to hear well known children’s author Judi Curtin speak. The 5th classes also had a visit from the editor of the ‘ Clare Champion’ local newspaper, Peter O’ Connell who spoke about the newspaper and how articles are chosen and the different roles in newspaper journalism. All children will be brought to visit our local library in November. They will be given a tour of the library and a chance to pick up an application form to join.
