The Kilkishen N.S. camogie team competed in the I.N.T.O. mini 7's blitz in Tulla recently. The girls recorded victories over O'Callaghans Mills, Killaloe, Broadford and narrowly lost out to the tournament winners Clonlara. There were great performances on the day from Emily Pewter, Chelsea Canny, Abby Heffernan and Hollie Nugent. Well done to all involved.
The next genre of writing that we have been focusing on is the Narrative genre. Narrative writing tells a story. It can be real or make believe. It has a beginning, a middle and an end. It features characters, settings and a plot and it is usually told in sequential order. The children were busy all month writing their own books for the Write-a-Book competition. We also set up stations in 3rd and 4th Class based around the theme of narrative writing. The stations were as follows:
Characters Station - The children had a variety of characters to choose from. They then had to describe these characters in terms of their physical appearance and their personality traits.
Settings Station - The children choose one or two settings and wrote about them, setting the scene for their stories.
Cartoon Strips Station - The children wrote a short story in the form of a cartoon strip.
Reading Station - The children read short stories.
Quiz Station - The children answered questions from a Quiz booklet based on their novel Wildflower Girl.
Storybird Station - The children used the artful storytelling website storybird.com to create short stories based on a picture of their choice.
The boys and girls soccer teams competed in the FAI SPAR 5 a side county finals in Lees road yestersday. Both teams secured two victories losing the vital 3rd games which would have seen them progress. Both boys and girls teams represented the school with pride and passion leading to compliments from spectators and rival teams. The boys had numerous stand out performers notably Darragh Moroney and Sean Boyce while the girls had Chelsea Canny and Hollie Nugent to the fore. All members of the panels deserve huge credit and acclaim for how they represented the school and performed.
