Fifth Class

5th Class- Week 3 of Closure.

5th Class- Week 3 of Covid 19 Closure

Dear Parents and Children,

I hope that you all are well as we continue in these uncertain times. I want to thank you for your work with your children so far. The work I put up is to help you help your child in their education. Please do not feel under pressure to complete everything on the lists. As I said previously, a timetable that suits you and your families can keep everyone on task. The work is a guide for you to do some English, Gaeilge and Maths daily and 1 or 2 of the other activities/subjects included. If children are still on the other work list, that is absolutely fine, it is not about finishing everything, it is about keeping children doing some schoolwork daily. Work can be done in the copies that the children have. During these unprecedented times we need to look after our families and each other. Never has it been so important to work together by staying apart. We will not expect any work done over the Easter holidays, as directed by the INTO. I will include some recreational activities that the children might find useful over the Easter holidays.

Go dté sibh slán,

Aoife Lynch.

Covid 19 Prayer:

Pope Francis’ Prayer to Mary during the coronavirus pandemic 

O Mary,
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
