We have more MMMMM ideas for the last day of March.

Music

Here is the link for Junior and Senior Infants Music Generation: https://youtu.be/FvgG2XCStVE All classes links to music can be viewed repeatedly – see yesterday’s blog.

Mental Health – positive tips

We got some great ideas from Joanna Fortune at the Mental Health event during book week. How long ago that seems! Here’s a link to a podcast that might help the whole family understand one another’s responses to the extended school closure and help foster positive mental health: https://podcast.rasset.ie/podcasts/audio/2020/0329/20200329_rte2fm-louisemcsharry-caringfork_c21742168_21742172_232_.mp3

I am also grateful to a friend who shared these wise words: “We are not stuck in our homes; we are safe in our homes.”
