Literacy Week 2017

As part of Moyne College Literacy Week, many initiatives are currently taking place to enhance student interest in vocabulary, drama and reading. Drop Everything and Read is an ongoing part of our daily classrooms as is our Word of the Day and Solve the Riddle, whole school activities.

 

1) A creative classroom display by Ms. Knight (sponsored by McDonald's, Castlebar  - they supplied the boxes for our 'word' fries - )

We asked our own Mc somethings - namely, Donna McLoughlin, Ms. Sinead McCarthy and first year Patrick McGinty to join in on the literacy action, and showcase their culinary, artistic and dictionary skills whilst being vocabulary aware!

"The whole concept of this synonym display board is to improve student vocabulary and show everyone that there are many word options to choose when expressing yourself, if you understand their meanings. Why admit you are simply happy, when you can add more description and be ecstatic or indeed joyous?" believes Ms. Knight. 

We are awaiting McDonald's to supply more boxes soon. Maybe this time we will get a few chips thrown in too?! 

 

2) We were delighted to have local drama director Ray Collins in our school this week to share his expertise and knowledge with students of the theatre and how to stage a play. Ray spent time with second years who recently enjoyed studying works by playwright Martin McDonagh. He carried out some improvisation games and directed how students read lines and try to adopt the personalities of characters. They were thrilled.

Ray also worked with a senior English class and took the time to analyse and direct a scene from their prescribed English course, Sean O'Casey's, "The Plough and the Stars." Student feedback was extremely positive and we hope to work with Ray again soon

3) As part of senior Shakespearean studies, Ms Knight's 5th year English class also attended a production of "King Lear" by Cyclone Repertory theatre group this week in Westport's Town Hall Theatre. The event was enjoyed by all. 

 

We are also running competitions this week to entice students into creating their own literary pieces. Anything from short stories, poems, raps to rhymes are welcome and our winners will be announced at the end of the week. Ms Langan and Ms Jordan are currently knee deep in entries and so far a great response has been observed. Good luck to all.
