Doodle Den

Doodle Den is an after-school literacy programme aimed at children in Senior Infant classes. It has been running successfully in our school since 2008. The Doodle Den programme runs for the academic year, and sessions are delivered three times a week for ninety minutes each. Two facilitators (Éilis O’Brien and Lorraine Quinn) deliver the programme to fifteen pupils. Doodle Den offers a programme that is activity based and incorporates literacy learning opportunities through games, art, drama and PE activities, as well as a more traditional approach to teaching literacy.
