The class have been encouraged to compose fictional stories in English for most of their year in Rang A hAon. The approach has been to avoid written correction of spelling and grammar mistakes with the focus being on developing their confidence in written story telling. They really loved the idea with many of them filling multiple cóipleabhar saorscríbhneoireachta with short fictional stories and associated illustrations.

The standard story had to have at least three characters and take-up at least three pages, although many of our young authors decided to link pieces together as chapters. Every child had a copy of my basic English dictionary and was actively encouraged to look-up spellings and to re-read their work as part of a reflective editing process.

Over the last couple of weeks before the holidays the gasúir switched from writing in their cóipleabhair to using special leathanaigh designed to allow them show-off their story-telling, joined handwriting and picture drawing skills to a wider audience - to become published authors! Tá a scéalta iontacha anseo thíos agus táim lán cinnte go mbaineadh sibh sásamh astu.
