Dear Parents /students,
I hope you are all safe, well and happy. I received  great feedback about the staff message we put together for you all, delighted  you enjoyed it.👍 Well done to you all for all the fantastic work you are doing at home and sending to me through email, you are all working so hard, I’m very impressed, also all the wonderful and creative activities you are doing at home with your family, I love hearing about them and seeing the lovely photos. Keep it up. Unfortunately we now know that schools will not reopen until September, I was hoping to see you all again in class before the summer. As you know Mrs. Kerr will be back in June, so I’d like to say a big thank you to each and every one of you for making my time in first and second class so enjoyable. You are a wonderful bunch of kids.😊 Stay safe and take care
Ms. Breen

If you are finished your class reader Bedtime Stories , there are some extra reading material from the same rainbow English programme online with activities such as vocab games, poems, interactive posters online on
If possible it would be hugely beneficial to keep up some reading daily during this time, whether it be school books, magazines, comics, or any other suitable material for children.

The Stay Safe Programme we were completing in class for S. P. H. E is available on the website, it is very much a discussion based subject with group work and role play in class, however the worksheets are available to print and complete here under the 1st /2nd class tab. (the printed booklets are left in school unfortunately) however the programme has been covered orally in class with the stories and video clips resources so your child  could complete the worksheet activities on it.
