Children are tested before and after the programme and evidence has shown a considerable increase in the children’s reading ability after the 6 weeks. The programme runs for an hour 3 times a week typically Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. During this hour there are 4 adults in the room working at the following stations


  • Phonics
  • Writing
  • Familiar reading
  • New reading




Library visits

All classes will visit the Library on the first Tuesday of every month (weather permitting). Please ensure that your child brings their library card with them on these visits. All parents are welcome to meet us at the library to assist their child in selecting their reading material.

 World Book Day 2018

To celebrate World Book Day, the boys and girls in Scoil Bhríde were invited to dress up as a character and bring in their favourite book to school. First Class got to visit Fourth Class and pair up with the older pupils to read their books together which was lots of fun!


Positive Mental Health and Wellbeing Week

As part of Mental Health Awareness week in Scoil Bhride, 1st Class got the chance to do some yoga with Ms. Kennedy. Yoga and meditation have multiple benefits for all age groups, children in particular. It helps develop their body awareness, it builds concentration and it teaches children to manage stress in a positive way. It was also lots of fun, as the children did lots of poses based on the story “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen.
