Link to PDF for “The Secret Garden” 3rd and 4th class

Filed under Literacy,Uncategorized

https://www.goodreads.com/ebooks/download/2998?doc=28797

Dear Parents,

this is a link to download the novel, The Secret Garden, which we hope to read over the next few months. Save it on your desktop and it will be available then to read. We have started it at school and I will be giving pupils specific pages to read each night once we settle into the book at school. This is a very cost effective way for our older pupils to access good books so I hope it works for us.

Thanking you,

M. Mc Elligott.

4th and 5th Class were given some D..E.A.R (Drop Everything And Read) Time in the afternoon today as a reward for their good behaviour and hard work all week.

They went to our nice reading corner to read their Library Books.

The children even managed to all fit on our 5 Beanie Bags!!

Adjectives

Filed under Literacy

For homework last night, we cut out adjectives from newspapers which best described us! Some people typed up or hand-wrote adjectives which best described them. We’re going to mount our photos onto the coloured cards tomorrow which will put a nice coupe de grace on our Adjectives Cards. Well done páistí.
