World Book Day

We had a great week celebrating World Book Day with lots of exciting activities. The theme this year was an Irish one so we focused on Irish Myths and Legends. The children chose 3 of their favourite Irish myths to learn about; Children of Lir, Cú Chulainn and The Salmon on Knowledge. We learned all about the stories and acted them out in class. The children then chose characters from the legends to dress up as for our character parade on Friday. Check out our costumes below!

We also had a visit from a storyteller who really captured our imaginations by telling us two great stories. We invented our own characters then and drew pictures of them.

The book fair was also a huge hit and the children loved browsing the books for some new reading material.
