Welcome Back to Distance Learning

Welcome back to  another few weeks of distance learning ! We know it’s not the same as being back together in school but hopefully it won’t be for too much longer.

Our teachers have lots of exciting activities planned for everyone over the next few weeks  and they will be in touch tomorrow through Aladdin Connect or Google Classroom. ….and don’t forget the RTE Hub everyday as well.

For our pupils from 3rd up , Ms. Brennan has created a short HOW TO video in case anyone has forgotten how to complete assignments on Google Classroom.

We have emailed all passwords and logins so they are  now stored in the Connect Parents Portal under the Texts and Email tab.

 

 

We are also very excited to introduce Mangahigh to our Senior Classes. This is a world renowned game based  Maths platform.

The school code is 440342 and pupils login with their google classroom logins. The teachers will post assignments on their google classrooms.

We are beginning Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds with our Juniors. It is new so it will be a learning curve for everyone. The teachers will give instructions  as to when and how to start.

Reading Eggs is based on solid scientific research and focuses around the five essential keys to reading success – phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension and fluency. The programme is designed by expert educators with over 30 years of experience.

Again, as we have said many times, no pressure… just do as much as you can.

 

Happy Easter Holidays !

We want to wish our staff, pupils, parents, guardians  and most especially all the grannies and grandads who are self isolating a very happy Easter. We know these difficult days will pass and we will all be back together soon. In the meantime  just look at the gorgeous Easter Bunny from Mark in 5th class. He might have a mask but he still has his Easter Egg !
