Thanks to everyone who participated in Zoom check-ins last week. The opportunity to see one another’s faces was appreciated by all who were free to attend. If you missed last week, do not worry – we will have more. The fine weather this week is a superb opportunity to learn outdoors. This link from our Forest Friday page has loads of simple ideas based on what’s happening in nature at this time of year: https://www.dspns.ie/forest-school/blog-of-sessions/

Through SeeSaw, we have seen pictures of amazing dens children have built in their back yards. We have seen lots of art work, much of it inspired by visiting beaches and exploring patches of grass.

We would also like to alert families to our end of year Whole School Assembly on Tuesday 23rd June 2020 via Zoom. Invites to follow closer to the date.

Thanks to all the children who participated respectfully and cooperatively in Zoom chats. The virtual meetings cannot replace the richness of the in-class experiences yet they help us fill the gaps and sustain us until we meet our friends again.

This coming weekend is a long weekend with Friday 29th May and Monday 1st June school holidays on our school calendar 2019-2020. All classes have received learning activities for a five day week so it is up to each family how to organise their days.
