Narrative Writing – Super Stories!

1st and 2nd Class were very busy over the last few weeks writing their own stories. They created and brought their characters to life. Thanks to 6th class for helping them to edit their stories. They then designed their own covers. They are all very proud of their creations. Here is a sample of a few!

Comprehension strategies are being explicitly taught to the children in 1st and 2nd Class.  It is important that we think about what we are reading and to construct meaning.  We are busy predicting, questioning, visualising and making connections in First and Second Class.  We will be adding to our comprehensions strategies during the year.

Literacy Lift Off

Literacy Lift-Off is in full swing in Mrs Meeneghan’s first and second class.  Literacy Lift-Off is an intensive programme which gives the children lots of opportunities to read books at their own level of competency and gradually lift the complexity of what they can do both in reading and writing.  The programme uses specially graded “PM+” readers which were purchased by the Parent Association.  New reading, familiar reading, phonic work, word work and writing are stations that the children visit each day under the guidance of Mrs Meeneghan, Mrs Mulhern, Martin, Mr O’Boyle,  and Mrs Cawley.

 


Soil is Not Dirt Workshop in Kilglass House

The boys and girls in Mrs Meeneghan’s 1st and 2nd Class went on great trip to Kilglass House today as part of Science Week.  The children had a super time in the gardens of Kilglass House.  They really had lots of fun in the hands-on “Soil is Not Dirt” workshop.  The children were full of joy as they  learned about nature and the web of life.

Report Writing

The boys and girls in 6th Class have been working with 1st and 2nd Class on their Report Writing.  They are researching their topics on the iPads, talking about their facts and engaging in shared writing.  It is great seeing the children freeing up their imagination and writing independently with the support of 6th Class.
