Brian Kirk

on June 10, 2016

This term an author, Brian Kirk came to fifth class. He showed us his book, The Rising Son. It was a very good book and very enjoyable to read. We were learning about The Easter Rising this year because it is the 100th anniversary.

He showed us pictures of The Easter Rising 1916 on the white board. One of the pictures he showed us was of a boy in front of the GPO. Then he asked us questions and got us to write a short story about it in 6 minutes. Half of the class wrote in 1st person and the other half in 3rd person. Some people read their stories out to the class and they were very good. This was very fun and would love another author to come back.
