A chailíní,

Tá fíor bhrón orm nach bhfuil mé in ann bualadh libh sa leabharlann chun caint faoi na leabhair a léigh sibh le déanaí.  Girls, I’m so disappointed we can’t meet in the library to discuss the books you have read recently. Ach is féidir libh labhairt le do Mham, do Dhaid, do dheifiúr, do dheartháir nó do chara! However, you can keep up reading though – get some of your family members or friends  to read the same book as you and then discuss it together:

  • The story (plot)
  • The characters
  • The setting
  • The ending
  • What you thought of the book

I have put some suggested questions on the website too for you.

Céard a léifidh mé/what will I read?

Some suggested books for 4th

  • Midnight Gang by David Walliams
  • Blob by David Walliams
  • Perfect Triology by Helena Duggan
  • Grindlewood Series byJackie Burke
  • Tin by Padráig Kenny
  • Pog by Padráig Kenny
  • Harry Potter Series 1 -3 by JK Rowling
  • Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter
  • Katy by Jacqueline Wilson
  • Books by Judi Curtin

4th class Céad Cruinniú Eile : WEDNESDAY 29ú Aibreán 2020

If you haven’t got a copy of a book, remember to check your class library as well as your school library. Some books may be available in your local library (Raheny/ Marino/ Donaghmede or Coolock) or you may be able to borrow from a friend.  Ensure you return the book in the condition you received it though! Try second hand book shops too – I love upstairs in Chapters, Ivy Exchange, Parnell Street, Dublin 1.
