Hi, the Easter Holidays are here and I hope you are are all enjoying your unexpected time off school. We did give you some school work to do over the past few weeks and we hope you managed to get it done. If not, don’t worry about it. You can do it over Easter or, if it’s a little difficult to get done, your teacher will help you catch up with the work when we get back to school.

I hope you’ve heard our most recent School News. We have nine healthy new chicks, hatched from the eggs in  Ms Ferry’s Fourth class Chick Hatching Project. Our Debating Team won the Donegal Concern Debating League. Grace, in Sixth Class, was runner up in the Highland Radio Art competition. Well done to all.

Recreational Easter Ideas: If you are looking for ideas for Easter, how about trying a few of these.

1. Organising an Easter hunt,

2. Drawing an Easter Card

3. Writing a nice letter/postcard to a granny, grandad or to a friend in your class,

4. Write a daily diary of what you are doing, who you meet and what’s in the news,

5. Going for a daily walk,

6. Identify three new flowers or trees near you house,

7. Look for frogspawn with a parent,

8. Visit your church or chapel,Learn a little about what Easter Week means/Spy Wednesday/ Holy Thursday/ Good Friday/ Easter Sunday.

9. Play with a toy from Christmas last year.

10. Offer to do a job in the house each day.

11.Watch Virtual Classroom on Rte2 at 11am or Explore how to take a virtual Tour of Dublin Zoo.

12. Read a book (or ask somebody to read you a story this week).

If you’re allowed, visit our School Website with a parent {Pupil Zone} and look for an educational game you like. (www. Mathionaire.com is good fun for multiplication practice for 3rd to Sixth. Use the code Prim20 to access).

For anybody who is looking for Project Ideas, how about Famous People in History/Famous Irish People,  or Famous Women. You could write a story about your Grandparents and prepare some questions for a telephone interview. Keep your work to show your teacher when we get back to school. We certainly look forward to seeing it.

You don’t have to do any of the above ideas, but you might like some of them. You might even have some better ideas yourself.

We hope to see you soon. Take care,

From all your teachers at Kilmacrennan School.
