Hello boys and girls of 5th class,

We have made it to the final few days of the school year. It is hard to believe that it has been 3 months since we have all been together and we have missed you all very much. We know that it has been a difficult 3 months but we are extremely proud of you all and how much effort and hard work you have all put in at home with your school work. We loved receiving all your emails, photos and videos of all the activities that you did at home. We want to take this opportunity to thank you, your parents and your family for how great you all have been during this time and how well you adapted to the changes. It has not been an easy time but you have all been amazing. We know that are all must be looking forward now to a well-deserved break and we hope you all have a great summer. Remember to stay safe.

We are really looking forward to seeing you all again in September.

 

As it is our final week of school we have decided to take the focus off school books. We have posted some fun activities that we hope you enjoy taking part in. Make sure to send us in some pictures/videos of you and your family doing some of the challenges. We would love to see them.

*Scoil Cholmcille hopes to make a video for our Facebook page and website celebrating a selection of the children’s learning during the period of school closure.  It would be great if parents could send in a short video, showing the learning that has been taking place at home.  Unfortunately, due to time constraints, the video will be short and it may not be possible to include everything that is received.  We would appreciate it if you could send these video clips to our gmail addresses (listed below) or directly to Mr McGowan at mrmcgowan4thclass@gmail.com before June 19th. Thank you.

It’s hard to believe that this is the last full week of school, in a most unusual school year.  Once again, we hope that you and your families are well.  This week we are assigning much less academic work (most of our textbooks and workbooks are completed) and more digital activities.  Next week, we will focus on active challenges and wellbeing activities.  Please continue to email us some pictures of your work throughout the week; we love to hear from you.

There are lots of special guests and surprises in store.
