Dear Parents,

I hope everyone enjoyed the mid-term. 1st Class have now completed their standardised tests. The results will be included in your child’s report card for the school year. You should get those in the next week. We are encouraging all children in the school to cycle or bring their bike to school on Wednesday 14th of June 2017. Please bring your helmet, hi-viz and a working bike, scooter or flicker.

COW (Cycle on Wednesday) day activities will include

  • a helmet check to ensure your helmet is fitted properly.
  • a bike check to ensure your bike is safe to ride
  • a cycle in the school yard or GAA pitch
  • a skills test of your balance, braking, pedalling and cornering.

We will have a word check on the Tricky Words 7 (yellow words) and a handwriting test this week – I will say the phonics sound ‘a as in apple’, ’k as in kite’, ‘oa as in boat’ etc, and the children will write the letter or letters.
