Dear parents, guardians and pupils,
I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. Last Thursday, the 12th of March, the boys were sent home from school with work to complete up until the 29th of March. Below is the list of work which I assigned to be completed by the 29th of March. When the full list is completed, it can be sent to me by parents on the school email- email@example.com to be graded OR I can collect and grade it in person when school returns. If school does not re-open on March the 29th, I will update the list of work each week and I would ask you to check the updated list.
I understand that this is a stressful and unclear time for us all and I do not wish to put added pressure on you or your sons however, it is important to maintain some degree of structure to help us to best get through this uncertain time ahead. The boys have worked so hard so far this year and I ask them to complete at least the three assigned pieces of work below to best ensure that this is maintained.
The assigned work for the week 23rd-27th March includes:
- Spellbound, week 25 (all activities- A to H)
- Master Your Maths, week 25 (Monday-Thursday)
- Book review- on any book with at least 100 pages (or there abouts). They were given a template to complete however if they misplaced the template or would rather not use it, they can write a copybook page to page and a half review on what the book was about, the characters, their likes, dislikes etc.
Here is also a list of activities which the pupils can do to help pass the time if they wish:
Phone an elderly relative for a chat.
Tidy your room.
Learn to tie shoe laces.
Help out by offering to a household chore everyday.
Drawing (there are great step-by-step tutorials on YouTube)
Participate in a skill challenge everyday. For example-
There are also a range of websites that you can check out:

Irish and other languages:
Duolingo- the boys already have accounts on this! An excellent and fun way to learn languages. If the boys have forgotten their login details, parents send me an email and I can give them out.
YouTube- great for step-by-step drawing tutorials!
If you have ANY questions, concerns, or wish to send me some of your sons' work, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
