A big thank you to all the parents who came to the school gates on Monday to return books and collect belongings. It was great to wave to lots of the children too. I am not setting work to do, just some ideas for you if you like.

I hope you got an invite by email to our last 3rd & 4th Classes’ Video Call. The call will be at 11 o’ clock today, Wednesday. Imagine it is our small break time in school, so you will need a little snack ( maybe some treats as we are celebrating the end of the school year!) Be ready to do some NTV Dance along!

Remember you will be invited to the whole school end of year Video Call on Thursday at 12 to say goodbye to 6th Class. Watch out for this too!

You can contact me through ClassDojo ( Portfolio or message) or you can email me chylandgns20@gmail.com if you have any questions and I’ll get back to you.

Dia daoibh! Hello everyone!
I hope you are ready for a new day of work.

Thank you for sending me lots of work. I was in school yesterday, gathering up all your belongings in the classroom and packing them in bags for collection soon. It was strange to be there without you but it has been wonderful to be in touch with you all through Class Dojo, emails and on video calls.

On Wednesday night as I was uploading your work for yesterday my webpage suddenly stopped uploading for me. You might have noticed the song was missing from the Music section. My webpage went to the website doctor and he said there was too much work on the page!!!! He took away the older posts and now it is working perfectly again! Good news!!!!
