Senior Infants

End of Year Message

School is out  A massive thank you to all the children and parents of Senior Infants who have worked so incredibly hard this year, and adapted to online teaching seamlessly in the last few months. Without the dedication and support of the parents, it really could not have been done.

Unity

 I really enjoyed interacting with you all on the Seesaw app and I have been very impressed with all the uploads, videos and pictures you have done since the schools closed in March.

 I hope everyone has a super summer and I look forward to seeing you all again really soon.

Wishing you all the very best in September.

Kind Regards,

Ms.Judge

15th-19th June

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

We are now on our last full week of Senior Infants and as we get closer to the end of the school term we will begin to wind down and reduce the workload as we would do in a normal school year, I have uploaded a list of work to choose from throughout the week.  I will be uploading various different fun activities to do on SeeSaw daily as well. You can upload pictures of one fun activity you do daily from the list. 

Once again thank you for all of your work and support, you have been amazing throughout all of this.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions.

Kildalkey Rocks!

The idea is simple – to paint, hide and find rocks in your local community. Take a rock, colour it with your own design or message, and leave it in a public place while out walking (observing social distancing at all times, of course).

If you come across somebody else’s rocks, don’t bring them home – pick them up,
