Dear Parents,

Thank you for sending in the items for our travel table. We now have items from many countries. We will be visit St. Brigids well on Wednesday. Please send in the consent form and €3 if not done already. I am still looking for parents, grandparents etc to come in to class and talk to us about another travel/ other countries. We have 3 visitors lined up. Just write a note to me on this page if you could do that. You can bring photos, PowerPoint’s, items etc with you. You will be asked questions! We learned about the differences between Ireland and Bermuda. Dictation is continuing. Again please have a look at their dictation copy in their bag to see how they are doing.
