Today the children had their first GAA training session with our coach Mairéad. The children had a great time! They will continue to have training every Tuesday for the next 5 weeks.
The children are settling in well and are doing a fantastic job of adjusting to the changes in school. At the moment, we have been focusing on pupils’ wellbeing, having spent six months away from friends and school. To ease them back into learning, we have also agreed not to give homework for now, but to focus instead on building skills the children will have missed during COVID, especially in numeracy and literacy.
The children are still engaging in individual graded reading each morning. I would encourage children to also read at home. We are currently revising times tables using https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button which the children really enjoy.
Fourth Class have also been busy using our STEAM boxes to play games, create fantastic buildings, structures etc.
Welcome to the 4th Class webpage.
All of the relevant information will be posted here so keep checking in.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Board of Management has agreed to stagger the start date of the new school term over the first 2 days. This will allow us to teach the new Covid procedures in a smaller group setting so that all pupils are aware of how to be as safe as possible at school. The split is being done by surnames.
Surnames starting A-Mac: Start school on Wednesday 26th of August and do NOT come in on Thursday 27th.
Surnames starting Mag-Z (including Mc surnames): Start school on Thursday 27th of August and do NOT come in on Wednesday 26th.
All pupils will come together as a whole class group on Friday 28th of August.
As outlined on the message sent yesterday, please ensure you adhere to the new dropping off and picking up protocols.
Please visit the school website at here for copies of all messages related to the re-opening of school.
We are all looking forward very much to welcoming back the pupils for the new school year.
