Good morning all,

I hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready for a fun week of activities.  You will really enjoy this week. Thursday is going to be a Sports Day at home. Think of some activities you would like to do and let me know. I will have some suggestions for you on Thursday also.

As we cannot go on our regular school tour this year, you will have a virtual school tour this week also. Get your snacks and treats ready for your day of choice and take a look at the virtual tour ideas attached.

Keep staying in touch and have a great week everyone.

Hello everyone,


I hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Can you believe we are at the start of a new month and the final few weeks of online work for junior infants. The time has flown by.

Thank you for sending me the completed work last week and for staying in touch. This week is much of the same. Some more activities can be completed in the children’s workbooks that they have at home now.

Don’t forget to stay active, enjoy the good weather and make some time to play.
