Pauline Devine Children’s Author

Thanks to Philips Bookshop for organising a visit from the children’s author Pauline Devine to our school on Tuesday 10th November. Pauline is renowned for writing both Irish and English children’s books and they are all available in Philips Bookshop, Mallow.

World Book Day

Our school takes part in World Book Day every year. Each child is invited to dress up as their favourite character from a book or comic. The children take part in various activities throughout the day incorporating reading and books, for example: shared reading, DEAR time etc.

Literacy Lift Off Programme

We have also introduced the Literacy Lift Off Programme in some classes which gives the children great individual attention and zones in on the problem areas for English.  At present 3rd and 4th class are doing the Literacy Lift Off Programme. The children are taught in small groups for fifty minutes, four days a week where elements of english are studied. This is a great success so far and we plan to introduce it into every class eventually.
