We celebrated World Book Day in our school on the 23rd of
All the children looked fantastic as they came to school dressed
up as their favourite book characters.
Lots of reading- based activities took place throughout the day
such as character interviews, book reviews and shared reading
between junior and senior classes.
This year we were very fortunate to have a local author, Jim
Bartley, visit our school. Jim visited all the classrooms, he
discussed his work as an author and the inspiration behind his
stories . The children really enjoyed creating their own stories
with Jim's help.
Jim's lovely books 'The Adventures of Pippy and Dippy' can
be bought for €5 each. Please email the school at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to purchase one.
