Book Review in @seomraranga
Well done to Jack in 6th whose Book Review of Kings of the Boyne by Nicola Pierce was featured on the Seomra Ranga Website. The aim of Seomra Ranga is to share practical resources for the Primary School Classroom on the web. The teachers in St Colman's are regular users of this fantastic site. This is a huge honour for Jack & for our school.
His Book Review can be read HERE.
I have recently finished the historical novel, Kings of the Boyne, by Nicola Pierce. The book was mainly about the famous battle, Battle of the Boyne. The chapters switched between four groups of people: Gerald O' Connor and his French friend, Jacques, fighting for King James II,the brothers Robert and Daniel Sherrard, fighting for King William III and the two kings, King James II and King William III. The book told the story of how these men took part in the battle and what it was like to be soldiers.
We were delighted that both the author & the publisher complimented the Book Review through TWITTER.
