Joe Wicks P.E lessons:



  • Make some Easter cards for your members of your family- get creative!

On-going work:

  • Start a project on a topic that interests your child. The children can add a page each day.  It can be about their favourite book, person, film, hobby, football team, Disney character or a country. They can write, draw, paint and even cut-out pictures to add into their book each day and they can present their masterpiece when school starts back.
  • Each day (Monday to Friday) RTE 2 will be airing a school programme from 11-12pm. Tune in for some interesting activities!


I am very much looking forward to looking at the children’s projects and work once we are back in school.  All you can do is your best and I will be happy with that! I will be in touch with you again after the Easter holidays. 

Have a lovely Easter and enjoy it as best you can.

Ms. McNamara
