St. Conleth & Mary’s Book Week

From the 16th to the 20th of May we celebrated Book Week in St. Conleth & Mary’s. Our second and fifth classes took part in a book themed quiz on Monday prepared by Ms. Conway. The quiz was won by Abbie, Elsie and Caoimhe (from Room 16) who were working with Eimear and Niamh (from Room 6).

3rd and 4th classes were visited by the author of the Grindelwood series, Jackie Burke. She spoke to them about writing and they had the opportunity to ask her questions about her work. Children from second class dressed up as characters from books on Friday.

The children spent the week preparing poems about their favourite character from a book. On Friday afternoon we gathered in the school hall for a poetry reading. One child from each class was selected to read their poem. They were presented with a certificate and a prize by Mrs. O’Neill.

We had a great week!
