Homework Note Week 31

Post date: 02-May-2017 13:38:18

Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a great long weekend. Our Aistear theme is now “The Shop”. We are discussing the different types of shops, why we need them, their opening hours and who might work there. We are also doing siopadóireacht as gaeilge. If you have any items that would help us play, please send them in. I will return them in a few weeks. Our school tour will be on Friday June 16th. We will be going to to the new Mungret playground and the Omniplex Cinema (film to be decided close to the date) and. The cost is €13 including bus for the day and a cinema ticket. Children will bring their own lunch. Please send that in before the end of May if your child is going to attend.
