Our CLOVER (children learn on very early reading) programme is finished in Junior Infants. To mark this event we brought the Junior Infants to Lucan library. There was great excitement as we went on a double decker bus. We met the head librarian, Catherine who told us all about the free services available to adults and children in the library. She also told us that the more we practise reading the better we will get, so try and read every day!!
The parents and experts then took over and read to their groups. It was such an enjoyable trip. Each child got a certificate for being a great reader, a certificate and a pencil and rubber. They promised me that they would try to read every day and would write down any new words with their new pencils.
I would like say a huge thank you to our lovely parents who volunteered their time over 6 weeks to come and read to your children. They truly have been marvellous and we could not have carried out this project without them. You were great fun!!
