This term Third Class are very fortunate to have the opportunity to read more books from some of their favourite authors including David Walliams, JK Rowling, Judi Curtin, Alan McDonald, Julian Clary and Francseca Simon.
We’ve secured 40 books from Kerry County Library for the term and the boys and girls are very enthusiastic to read some of these books. Once again this term they all have another opportunity to win some amazing prizes.
Each child will be given a ticket for each book read and will be entered for a draw at the end of term. The prizes as chosen by the children themselves are a Smyths voucher, a cinema voucher and a football.
Research has shown the importance of nurturing the love of reading at home and school from a young age. We hope that this programme and reading incentives will help develop their reading vocabulary and reading comprehension even further.
