Covid-19

Suggestions to help your children when learning from home:

From Monday the 30th of March RTE will be showing a classroom based program for 1st to 6th class students . It will air from 11-12 daily.


This is a list of websites and activities that may be useful when your child finishes work set by their class teacher. Some of the websites need you to register but they are all free. Under each web link or suggestion there is a short description.

A website with graded comprehensions. Anyone who attends Ms Ryan’s English groups is already set up and has a login name and password on the front of their copy. You do a 20 minute assessment and then the website gives you stories and questions at your own level. Great for independent work.
