The Summer Holidays are here at last! Did you throw your coat up into the air at midday on Friday? Mrs McCarthy did!!
Here are some of the our class’ favourite memories of Rang a Trí. Thank you for all of your hard work this year, both in Room 9 and during the school closure.
I know that you will all work hard for Ms Duffy in 4th Class. She is really looking forward to being your teacher. I have already told her about all the amazing girls she will have in Room 8 next year.
One of the best things you can do this Summer, is to keep reading! The Dublin libraries are running Summer Stars Reading Programme again this year. You can listen to audio/e-books, write short stories, read book reviews, do quizzes and enjoy storytime by the librarians and local authors. Definitely worth checking out! https://www.librariesireland.ie/services/right-to-read/summer-stars
Enjoy a wonderful Summer!
Can you believe that we’re in the last week of 3rd Class? As it is the last week of the school year, I have set out lots of fun activities for you to do this week. Try out as many as you can. Organise your week, and your learning, to suit your family.
Please fill in the Memory Page, and send it to me by Wednesday. I hope that you will feel proud of your work, and pleased to share it on the class blog.

Good morning !
I hope that you all have a good weekend.
This is our second last week of Learning from Home before our Summer Holidays begin! I really enjoy seeing your wonderful work on Seesaw and the lovely messages you send. Maith sibh! 🙂
For these last two weeks, instead of Busy at Maths, there is a Maths Choice Board, with activities similar to our Friday Maths Stations. I hope you’ll enjoy them.
Father’s Day is next Sunday, 21st June. I’ve included a sample of Scavenger Hunt clues that you could put around your home to lead your Dad to a lovely card, gift or surprise you’ve created. But you could get creative and make up your own clues!
Déan do dhícheall. Please organise your day to suit you and your family. If you need anything just send me an email or a message on Seesaw.
Have a great week!
