Write A Book 2019
Lots of schools in Ireland participate in Write A Book and Kiltiernan N.S has taken part from Junior Infants to 6th class for a few years now. Write A Book is where you write your own book, it can be of any genre and about whatever you want (e.g. fiction, realistic fiction, horror, thriller). It is an enjoyable experience as most of the pupils of Kiltiernan say. It gives them the experience of being an author and may even inspire some of them to be authors themselves. They have had about one or two months to do it this year.
Every year there is lots of remarkable Write A Books. The children choose a theme, the teachers and parents help them when they are writing their books by correcting spelling mistakes, grammar issues and more. They can go to the school libraries in each classroom to look for a book that they like and learn from that book (e.g. what it’s based on, the theme of the book and then write a book on their favourite genre). The books are submitted to Galway Education Centre and are shared with other schools and we get to see other schools books and see what they wrote about.
