Please find below a list of resources and websites that may be useful to you and your children over the next couple of weeks. Any websites or work mentioned is purely a suggestion- there is no obligation for your child to do any of this work. The most important thing at this time is to look out for and care for each other. Please listen to and obey all advice given by the Health Officials. Things will return to normal at some stage- the most important thing is that everyone we care about is there with us when we get back to normal life.
This link will take you to twinkl.ie who have produced 3 weeks’ worth of school closures packs for each class level
An excellent site that has online maths and English activities for all class levels
Educational publishers have made available their online resources to all during the school closures. These include Folens and CJ Fallon. You only need to register. Directions available on the homepage of the following websites.
Again, these are just suggestions that you or your children might like to use. Most importantly is that we all stay safe and keep our loved ones safe.
Stay safe and stay well,
