Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you are keeping safe and not stressing too much about your boy’s school work. Below are some suggestions of what you could do from the week of the 20th April until the 3rd May. The theme of this fortnight is Under the Sea. The Under the Sea theme is all about exploring the world’s oceans and all the sea creatures in them. It is about exploring water, capacity and floating and sinking.  This work includes Youtube Stories, Powerpoints and worksheets on Twinkl and other activities. Literacy in Junior and Senior Infants is most important so if you are going to pick one thing to do with your child, literacy is a great place to start. Please do not feel under any pressure to get this work done, these are only suggestions! When we are back in school we will pick up where we left off and work extra hard to cover any work that your child has missed. Reading a book, playing a game and having a conversation with your child is just as good so make the most of this time with your child and stay safe.

P.S. We miss all the boys very much!

* Please note – Boys that go to learning support or language support – The learning and language support teachers have put work separately on the website for the boys they take. Please check the website for work specifically aimed at these boys.
