Junior Room visit the Library

On Friday, 7th October Mrs Galvin and Mrs Gavigan took the Junior Room on a trip to Athlone Library. When we arrived we were greeted by Áine and were given a chance to look at and read some books. Most of the children were already members of the library but some became new members on the day. After we had chosen our favourite books to borrow, Áine brought us to the story mat where she read two books, ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson and ‘Doing the Animal Bop’ by Lindsey Gardiner. We had great fun pretending to be the animals in the stories. We were so happy that we could bring home some books to read and are looking forward to choosing some more when we return soon!

Roald Dahl Day

On Tuesday, 13th September, we celebrated Roald Dahl Day. This wonderful author would have celebrated his 100th birthday. We marked this special day by learning all about the life of Roald Dahl and taking part in some fun activities based on his books. The children are reading lots of Roald Dahl books at the moment and one of the class favourites is ‘The BFG’ which has recently been made into a movie!
