Literacy Lift Off

Literacy Lift Off

Ms. Kilmartin’s First class has been very busy for the last six weeks completing the Literacy Lift Off program. We had great fun!

New Book

We got a new book every day during Literacy Lift Off. We first read our book with Mrs. McCabe, before reading it at home. We practised our prediction skills, as well as figuring out lots of new words!





Familiar Reading

At the familiar reading station we read our books from the night before, with Ms. Kilmartin. We practised becoming quick readers and talking about the story, as well as learning lots about punctuation, grammar and spellings.





At the writing station, Mrs. McCullagh helped us to write a sentence based on our familiar book. We got lots of practise with letter formation and spelling tricky words!








Our phonics station was very busy! We practised our spelling and dictation on our whiteboards, and learned lots of grammar too. Mrs. Cronnolly also helped us with our spelling tests every Friday.







Word Work

At the word work station, we used magnet boards and letters to practise our word building strategies with Mr. Kilbride.









We got to use the ipads every morning to practise our spelling and grammar on the Spelling Bee app!


Futsol Champions

The annual Futsol blitz for 3rd and 4th class was held on Monday 5th December in Roscommon Town. Teams from all over the county participated.


The Cloonakilla girls played some lovely football and ended up beating Ballybay 1-0 in the semi-final. They were very unlucky in the final losing on a score line of 2-1 to Summerhill.


Next up was the boys’ competition. Both teams played brilliantly and we were represented by one team in the semi-final. Cloonakilla started very strongly and scored some early goals to set up a final with Cornafulla. The final proved to be very exciting and Cloonakilla were thrilled to win the match 3-1. It was a great achievement.


It was a very enjoyable day for all. Well done to all the boys and girls who played in the blitz. The medal presented was held after the carol service.
