Dear Parent,

I hope you and your family are keeping well at this time.

Keeping our children in isolation is a very alien concept for them. There may be many changes in their behaviour and mood. Their mental well-being is of utmost priority. For that reason I am not putting any pressure on you to complete any of the following activities. The children may not want to engage at all as their motivation levels ha...

Dear parents and children,

I hope that you are all keeping well and are happy at home. This has been a trying time for everyone. Despite being very confined you are doing very well.

To supplement the work children are doing at home as guided by their own teachers, check out RTE's Home School Hub.  The ‘virtual classroom’ airs on RTE2 from 11am to 12pm.  Later on in the day, RTE Home School Extra will air as a catch-up programme at 4.15pm.

1st Class Parents,

To further help you and your child engage in education from home, Folens have agreed that you, the parent, can access our school’s online resources FREE OF CHARGE.

Details of how to log in have been sent to you via email and are also available on the Aladdin Noticeboard

As there is an abundance of resources to overwhelm you, I think it is advisable to select two areas of focus, Literacy and Numeracy.

A variety of literary characters visited First Class for World Book Day!  The children delighted in informing us who they were and from which story book they came.

It enabled them to express their joy in reading stories and entering into their imagination - however short-lived it was!

A fun day was had by all...

Thanks to everyone who helped in any way, including the Parent Association, all the staff, the pupils themselves, and of course the fantastic audience!
