Literacy Week 2022 & World Book Day
Category : Post Primary
On Monday, students took part in a Calligram competition. This cross-curricular activity combined their artistic skills with their vocabulary.
On Tuesday, students took part in a school count down the competition. In groups, they had to record the vowels and consonants and make the best words they could think of collectively.
On Wednesday, students played a game of Kahoot. All years groups took part. A student in third year won the competition.
On Thursday, it was World Book Day. Lots of students and teachers dressed up as their favourite characters from their chosen books. Students took part in a poetry hunt around the school. Students organised themselves into groups and then read the poem “Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening” by Robert Frost.
Students then were given clues in order to go to certain classrooms to get pieces of the poem. Students had to work out what room they needed to go to, go to the room, and then answer the question asked by the teacher in order to secure the poetry piece. After students gathered all 7 clues, they came back to the hall to try and assemble the poem correctly.
On Friday, students found out the results from the activities during the week.
