Homework Note Week 26

Post date: 03-Apr-2016 22:50:06

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone had a great Easter break. Thank you for your help with our 1916 activities. The children looked the part on the day and hopefully they will remember the celebrations for years to come. We plan to continue have hurling training on Mondays and Wednesdays. So PE days are now Mondays and Wednesdays. You will see some Maths and phonics test in the homework folder of the next few days. Please sign and return those to me. Our School Tour this year will be on Friday June 17th. We moved groups and shapes before Easter so please ask your child about where they are sitting now. Our Aistear theme is moving to Travel. We will be talking about going to the airport etc. If you have any items needed for travel or from another country that we could talk about please send them in for our Aistear table. The children have picked England, Italy, Spain and China as the countries they would like to travel to.
