Gerry Boland (poet and author) visited our school in mid-March and the boys engaged in creative writing workshops with Gerry, based on narrative writing and poetry.
In 4th and 5th class pupils focused on poetry for one part of their workshop. Pupils read sample poems and examined the structure and layout. Gerry also read out a numbr of verses from his own poem that he wrote for his book.
Pupils then drafted their own 'I am' poems and later edited them.
Their poems were then published for display and for reading aloud on an 'Author's Chair'.
We will keep you updated with our school events on a regular basis
