Week beginning 20/4/20

Hi all,
I hope that everyone is keeping well and that you are helping out at home! Many of you probably do not have all of the copybooks or schoolbooks that you may need. Do as much as you can with what you have and use the online books if you have access to the internet. You may want to do all your work in one new copybook to keep it together. Sometimes it might suit better to discuss certain topics or tasks with a parent, instead of writing them out. The most important thing is that you do a little every day and that you keep on reading! Try to read a novel a month, although some of you may read much more. Do not forget to get out in the fresh air every day and try to use this time to learn some new skills!
Le gach dea-ghuí,
Ms. O’Doherty and Ms. Harney.
