3rd Class: 27th April 2020

Hi Boys and Girls in 3rd class,

We hope you are all feeling ok and that you are enjoying this extra time at home with your family. The third class teachers are really missing you and have a very special message for you! It was great to hear from so many of you last week and we look forward to hearing from lots more of you this week.

We would really love to get some photos of the different things you are doing at home with your family ( playing with your brothers and sisters, baking with Mam, building a den, gardening). We will put your photos up on our third class page on the school website.

Use the following email address: thirdclasswork@scoil-bhride.com

It is very important to remember that this is just a suggested outline of work for next week and there is no pressure to complete it all. Please only do what you and your child are comfortable with. We do not wish to put additional stress on anyone at this time.

Stay safe and keep well!

Ms Lanham, Mr Wall, Ms Carroll, Ms Fleming, Mr Bartley, Ms McCarthy, Mr Mulligan and Mr Monaghan.
