6th class parents and pupils

Now that we have our design and our signatures all sorted, pupils can start placing their orders for their very own 6th class hoodies, using the link at the end of this post.

As I mentioned yesterday, we are under a bit of time pressure to have them manufactured and delivered by the end of term, hence the speed at which we are progressing.  We are not asking for payment at this stage.  I would ask th...

To all in 6th Class:

Thank you for completing lessons and for keeping up with your schoolwork. Today marks the start of the Easter break which will run for the next two weeks. Children should take a break from formal lessons and enjoy playing and resting. Your teachers w...

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.

You can also watch online, where you will...

Dear Parents 

Khan Academy is a very useful education website for teaching and learning maths

For 6th Class, I have set up a class group. The link has been sent to you by email and allows you to join the class group for your child. I can then monitor his/her learning remotely.

Keep safe
