Along with sharing some of our families' pics today, we've got a fresh crop of links and ideas to keep you going right through the Easter holidays!
We are definitely living through astonishing times. Huge, huge changes are happening all around us-and to us! If you haven't started already, get your own blog or journal going to record the day to day events.
Or just sign up for the initiative from our local History Society and Millmount Museum!
They would LOVE to get a story, a poem or a drawing from you about what you are doing during this Corona Virus Emergency. Ask your Mam, Dad or guardian to submit it via email-details below!
You could always do a session of birdwatching in your garden. Some of you guys are already keen birders. If you put out a few crumbs or nuts for the birds its amazing to see what birds you can attract. But put the food up high and close enough to a tree or a bush where the birds can shelter. Then you can play this game of Bird Bingo!
And here's a really popular birder and artist: Don Conroy. He's on TV and also on youtube. And, if you think we've mentioned him before, well, you're right! We really like what this guy does and we think you will too!
Just click on the links below!
There's lots of free maths games here
And David Walliams reads his stories at 11 am every day here.

These boys are keeping up with their Gaeilge, Music and the fitness through RTE's education hub. Their Mum joined in the fun too! We're just waiting for the photo to prove that though! :-)
You don't have to print sheets off either-why not make your own? It's amazing what you can do with a blank sheet of paper! Some GREAT maths practice here!
There's lots of resources for all parents on the NCSE website. It also includes support for Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and a great social story for children on the Covid-19 virus.
I havejust got to say... I love this! What a time we're are having now-with a right mix of the good and the bad and the challenging for all. But can also be a great time for family. It's a great time to pull together, get all hands on deck AND create a memento of this time together.
So, you might like to keep a journal, write a poem or draw a picture to remind you of this unique time in our history. Or just get your paints out and put all hands together.
Check out our class blogs here everyone! The teachers have been busy getting their blogs set up. You'll be able to send on your pics and your activities to your teacher right away!
Pics intended for publishing on the blog MUST be sent by parents or guardians.
Your identity or address will not be shared online.
Teachers are also on hand to answer questions or queries via email, tomorrow and after the Easter holidays.
Email Addresses at the end of yesterday's blog post here!
They will upload the next round of suggested activities for their classes on Sunday 19th April via Aladdin Connect so you're all good to get back into your learning routine from Monday 20th April.
