Remote learning-5th & 6th Class, 8th-12th March

Dear Parents, Boys & Girls

I hope that you are all continuing to stay safe and well. A plan of work for 8th to 12th March has now been emailed to you in daily timetable format. As always please do what you can and reduce or extend your child’s work to ensure it is suitable for their needs and ability. Hopefully next week will be the last week of remote learning and the long awaited return to school will go ahead as scheduled for Monday 15th March!

There will be another two Zoom classes next week, one on Tuesday 9th March for Irish and the other on Thursday 11th March for English but at a different time of 12.30pm on both days. During our Irish Zoom we will do a quiz, ‘Tráth na gCeist’ so I would ask that all pupils taking part have a pencil/pen and piece of paper in front of them. Our English Zoom class will focus on poetry and Novel work. As always the final part of each Zoom class will be set aside for Questions & Answers the pupils may have on any of their work.

Seachtain na Gaeilge, an International Irish language festival, runs from the 1st -17th March. As a result there will be a greater emphasis on Seachtain na Gaeilge activities in the plans for Irish next week. The pupils may choose to engage in some or all of the suggested activities in an attempt to encourage them to use and have fun with their native language. Lots of online events for Seachtain na Gaeilge are taking place which can be accessed by following the link https://www.energia.ie/snag-2021

Sincere thanks once again to all the boys and girls for their continued dedication and participation on Seesaw. I know this may be becoming a little more challenging as time goes on so I truly appreciate their interaction until we become reunited in our classroom very soon.

As always if you have any questions, queries or feedback, don’t hesitate to contact me on my email address.

In the event that some pupils are getting through their school work and the activities on Seesaw quickly, I have outlined a list of extension activities in all subject areas in my email to you, if they choose to engage with these.

Stay safe everyone and I look forward to seeing you all back in our class very soon!

Mrs Campbell
