Hi everyone,

This week is a short week so the children have an Irish and English poem in their copies to read and they can do this sheet below orally. There is also a little bit of handwriting marked for them in their handwriting books.

Have a great short week everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. A big thank you for all your efforts with the children last week in encouraging them to read at home, it sounded like the children were really getting into it and enjoyed telling me what they were reading and how many pages they read. We will continue to do the same this week as well as the reading assigned below.

Have a lovey week and thanks again for the support with homework.

E. O’Shea

This week we are learning about words to use instead of said and nice. You could read a few of these words each night with your child:


This week we are learning – 10 tables. Please learn four per night and revise on Thursday.

We will be revising time this week. Please talk about what time it is in the first picture and I will send home the second worksheet for the children to do the section shown below at home to revise time. There is no need to return this, you can correct your child’s work or send a picture of it to me in an email if you would like me to correct it. We will be doing lots of work on this in school daily but it would be good for the children to go over it at home also.


Please learn two spellings per night.

Please read these sentences each night:

Welcome back to all the children today. I hope you enjoyed the Easter holidays! We are heading into our final term and I’m really looking forward to better weather and hopefully more outdoor activities. We had fun planting some potatoes before Easter and hope to plant lots more things in the next week or two. Pictures to come! This week I will put up Communion responses for the children to go over at home until we get confirmation of any dates. We have been doing these in school too.

The homework for the week is below which I will go through. On Thursday I will put a link to the EPIC App for further reading.

Have a great week everyone.

Ms. O’Shea.

We will revise the same spellings as before Easter as these were tricky.

Irish Reading: Please read nightly. It should get easier for the children as the week goes on as we will be reading this daily in school also.


Please learn -9 tables this week. Four per night from tables book. The children have loved learning these well for the tables knockout game and are making good progress at quick recall which I am proud of!

Please try three per night up to number 12. We are learning how to take away with regrouping. The children are learning rhymes to help them. More on the top, no need to stop. More on the floor, go next door and get some more.

Monday 22nd March

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely few days off and had fun trying to trap some leprechauns! There are some more traps below for you all to see but I haven’t heard of one being caught yet!

Please see the homework for the week below. Please read the English and Irish reading each night, learn four tables, four English spellings and two Irish spellings each night. It would be great if you could do three addition sums per night and a few of the tables activities from below each night. I have also assigned a book on the epic app for this week. The children could read five or six pages per night. Class code: qyg6640

This week we hope to get to the community garden weather permitting, to lay our ladybird houses and to plant some potatoes, tomatoes, sunflowers, carrots and a few more bits and pieces. If any children have garden gloves they could bring in in a zip lock bag with their name on it and leave in school, it would be great for the next couple of weeks so that we could head up and do a bit of planting and weeding every now and then.

Thank you for your support and have a lovely week.

E. O’Shea.

Good morning everyone and Happy Pancake Tuesday!

I’m sure many of you will be making pancakes today and a lot of our activities are based around pancakes below for the day that’s in it. I would love to see some pictures of your pancake making and tossing skills and maybe what your favourite toppings are on your pancake! If you can take a picture, send it to me and I’ll make a collage for the website and put your name in a hat for a prize that I will keep for you until we’re back at school. I’m looking forward to seeing how high you can toss those pancakes!

I will also send on zoom details for a zoom meeting tomorrow, Wednesday at 10am if you would like to attend for some fun. Have a great day and hopefully I’ll see some of you on zoom soon.
