April 24

Hello again

So, we’ve all survived another week of lockdown. It doesn’t get any easier but we’re being greatly helped by the fine weather – hopefully it will continue.

Here is the email I sent home earlier today – it tells you how to get Twinkl working for you again if you’ve been having problems with it:

April 24

I have a few more recommendations to make to you with regard to websites – some of which have been recommended by parents because their children are enjoying them. So here’s one:


This is a great website for children who are interested in our planet – especially oceans and seas. Given that Wednesday was World Earth Day, it’s a good time to have a look at it.

I know that many parents are finding difficulty engaging children with Irish and accessing the Abair Liom resources online. Don’t forget to try out Duolingo and Cúl4. These sites will keep the children in touch with Irish even if they are not doing all of the work that their teachers are sending.

For the quiz lovers, remember that there is a Stay at Home Quiz every day on the Seomra Ranga website.

Don’t forget the Primary Planet website – it’s really interesting. They’ve got a great competition going to design a front cover:


I know that Mr. Keane would love to see some entries from our school so I’m hoping some children will try it out.

Finally, Ms. Popplewell is suggesting a recipe for you to make at home:
