First Year

Online learning 2021

As we return back to school fully on Monday 1st March, Mrs. Powers class spent some time reflecting on what they learnt during these strange time.

Divine - Loved the Friday activities - "The disco was great fun"

Kasey - "I really liked the 10.30am catch up with the class. We played scavenger hunts, show & tell, Bingo and had some really funny discussions like What would be your superpower or would you prefer to work indoors or outdoors :)"

The pictures below are

Siun - "I liked baking and here is my Penguin chocolate cake"

Caoimhe - Mrs. Power asked us to make some crosses using anything at home for St Bridgids Day. I used green paper to make it. It was fun

Julie - "We learnt about Fire safety in SPHE. I checked all our alarms. They were all working"

Kian - I helped my Dad with some plastering. I loved it and I liked telling my class what I did. It was hard but fun.
