Dear families,

The information below contains an outline of work that we have prepared for the children.

This includes work in a range of subjects including Literacy. Gaeilge, Maths, Art, PE, SESE (History, Geography, Science) and Music.

The pupils have been provided with two At Home Work packs, their homework books, handwriting books and free writing copies. Some classes may have additional workbooks.

In addition to this, each class level has a list of other work detailed below, and a list of links to support your child’s learning.

A number of links to educational sites and tasks have been provided for parents to use with their children. Pupils should be supervised by an adult when using any internet links or websites.

All work should be retained and returned to school upon reopening of the school.
