St Nicholas' Primary School

Local author visits school

Northern Ireland author, Adrian Thompson visited the school today and read extracts from 'The Itchy Feet Guide to Ulster.'


The book is made up of character based cartoons, narrative stories, games, puzzles and activities aimed at introducing children to the history, myths and legends of the province of Ulster. 


It also encourages children to get out and explore various attractions that Ulster has to offer - including for example the Ulster Museum, Ulster American Folk Park and Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Giants Causeway, Navan Fort and Titanic and Carrickfergus Castle as well as many other places of interest.


The P5/6 class worked on some extension tasks during their Creative Writing lesson with Mr Burns and enjoyed the activities related to the book. 

The book is £9.99.  If you would like more information go to
