Welcome back everybody after the Easter break! I hope you all had a lovely time in the sunshine. We've all been doing just GREAT with social distancing and hand washing so it's been good to hear that Ireland are doing so well in flattening the curve and preventing a lot of suffering from Covid-19! Still, we've got to keep up the work.
And hopefully keep up all the learning too!
...has been working his magic, delivering suggested work for every class. There were a couple of technical glitches with Aladdin's magic lamp this morning but they have been sorted now. If you have any Aladdin issues contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We're still happy to get feedback and pics at that email too. But we also have beautiful class blogs on our website! You can drop over there to look at them and each blog has an email address for parents to contact the class teacher directly.
The teachers really want to add lots of pics of your son's activities on their blogs too, so email them on directly to the teachers please. It can be a great motivator to see your work up online!
So how is your new routine going today? We hope you're mixing up the more challenging work with fun stuff.
We hope you're getting lots of exercise. Don't forget Joe's live sessions on TV and also on youtube.
And enjoy this really lively and inspiring series of programmes from TG4-a fun way to learn Irish!
If you've missed any programmes from RTE's Home School Hub you'll get them here It's on at 11am every week day morning.
And remember there also has been no better time to enjoy nature. You will learn a lot from getting out there watching wildlife, drawing what you see, or taking pictures.
Why not add them to your journal of this very special time in our country?
The very best thing you could do right now is get an ordinary blank writing copy and use it for your own daily observations on what is happening around you. You can keep that diary for yourself to look back on in years to come. Or you and your parents might be interested in the following project from Meath County Council....
Meath County Council are very interested in receiving diaries from everyone-children and adults-on life in these times. These diaries will be a great source of history for everyone in years to come. Read all about this initiative here.
Don't forget......SET UP A SCHEDULE for your weekdays!
Include exercise, art time, English and Irish, Maths, Science, prayer time, quiet time.
A random act of kindness!(or two!)
Now, head over to your teacher's blog for lots more suggestions on activities that you can fit into your routine this week.
