K.C.C. Writer in Residence Gives a Workshop

Máire Holmes enthralled children and teachers alike, as she elicited great ideas and descriptive vocabulary, while exploring poetry.

Fourth class were very attentive.

Máire had a wonderful way of getting the children to contribute and to laugh!

Ms Claire organised this for Fourth and Fifth class as we acknowledge WORLD BOOK DAY in two weeks time. Children should visit the poetry section in the town library and enjoy reading poetry aloud at home. That,s when it really comes alive.

Also try writing poetry. It’s not just for Valentine’s Day, you know!
