Third Class

Wishing Everyone a Safe and Happy Halloween

The children had a great day today before we broke up for Mid-Term. They made Ghost lollipops and did the Monster Freeze Dance in their classroom. Here are some pictures of all the fun!

 

 

 

Advice Note - 3rd Class

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome!

I am looking forward to the start of the new year and meeting all the third class children on Friday 28th August. However, the school will be operating very differently. I understand and realise that there may be anxiety about the return to school but staff and management have been working very hard to ensure safety and wellbeing is paramount in these challenging times. This document will help you with any questions that you might have before the children start.

All single pupil families will enter the school from 9.20am – 9.30am. All other children will enter the school from 9.30am-9.40am. 3rd Class children will finish school at 3.05pm

3rd Class children will enter the school through the nearest PE door - nearest the main reception door. All entry points will be clearly labelled. They will be met by a member of staff. Children are not permitted to congregate anywhere at the front of the school and must enter the school building as soon as they reach the school and go directly to their classroom. When the children finish at 3.05pm, they will exit through the same door as entry.  Gatherings of parents or children outside the school are strongly discouraged.

 

Break Times:   Third class will have their breaktimes at  11am -11.15am and 12.00pm -12.30pm. They will be sharing their yard breaks with Féileacháin Class, Junior Infants, 1st Class and 5th Class. Children will not be allowed to  leave their designated areas on yard and mix with the other classes.

Lunch boxes must be easy to open and food to be put on the lid of the box and not on the tables. Please ensure that your child has enough water for the school day to avoid refilling at the classroom taps.  Children need to bring their own stationery, there will be no sharing of equipment. Please ensure all items are clearly labelled. We would ask that you purchase a large plastic tub, approximately 55 litres.  An example is posted on the Website homepage.  This will faciliate all of the children's items including their bag, books, coat. 

Children are not required to bring hand santiser into class.  Parents are asked to contact the school if your child has an allergy/skin condition  and cannot use the school hand sanitiser

Communication/ School Email:  Parents may contact me through email if they have a query. Emails can be sent between 9.30am - 4.00pm. Teacher email addresses will be put up on the  school website at the start of the term. I will endeavour to answer your query the same day, or if received after 4.00pm, it will be the following day.

I realise that this is a lot of information to take in but I would ask you to go through it with your child before school starts. 

More importantly, enjoy the following days with your families and I am so looking forward to seeing the children again. It will take time to get used to the new procedures in our school but I know that with all of your support, we can get back to school, safely and easily. 

Kindest regards

Jennifer Treadwell
