Hello

Hi Room 24 and families,

I hope everyone is keeping well and has been teaching everyone at home how to wash your hands like we did in class. You will all be sick of singing Happy Birthday to yourself by the time we see each other again!

Before we left school I sent home some work to be completed by March 29th. I can't wait to see all of the projects, science fair experiments and write a books when we get back to school! If anyone would like to send on pictures (to put on the blog or just show off your great work) of what they have done so far or need a bit of help with that my school email is gdeegan@stgabrielsprimary.ie.
We will celebrate all the hard work I have no doubt you're doing on it when we are back in school!

This Friday I will be posting some more activities to do each day next week. It will be easy for you to manage independently and as I always say the most important thing is not to stress about it. I know lots of you will be helping out at home and may find it difficult to get it all done. Don't worry, try your best!

I hope you are all making the most of this time- practising the things you love doing, trying new things and helping out around the house! Keep washing those hands and get some exercise- I can't wait to hear about the dance challenges, pe workouts and other things you've done when we are all back together.


Ms. Deegan
