Junior Infants 18th January 2021

Hello Junior Infants,

Well done everybody for working so well this week. We are delighted with all the contributions to Seesaw that we have received so far. It’s great to see that everyone is dipping in and out the activities provided to find what suits your home and your child best.

We’re happy that nearly all the homework resource packs have been collected from the school by now and we’ve seen wonderful photos of children using their playdough, cubes and whiteboard markers to practise making and writing their letters, numbers and names. Keep up the great work!

Please remember if you have any queries about anything feel free to e-mail your child’s teacher or message us on Seesaw. If anybody has been unable to access Seesaw and requires a new access code we can organise that and e-mail one to you.

Kind Regards,

Ms Leonard and Ms. Flahive.
