CAPER Reading

14th May 2024
C.A.P.E.R. stands for children and parents enjoy reading. It is an early intervention reading strategy implemented from the second term in Junior Infants to the end of Second class.

The aims of the caper programme are
  • To promote the reading levels of children in the Junior classes
  • To increase awareness of the value of parents contribution to the learning process
  • To strengthen links between home and school
  • To foster positive attitudes to reading
  • To extend parent and teacher knowledge of good children’s books
  • To create a love of reading and books.
Today our Junior Infant parents came to school today and listened to Suzanne read some stories after class teachers Laura Stapleton and Rebecca Delahunty explained the concept of CAPER.
