2nd Class: 18th May 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Hello from 2nd class teachers! We hope you and your extended families are happy and healthy this week. 🙂

A big “Thank You”, to the children and yourselves, for completing and sending in the creative Heart Art pieces. The children seem to be enjoying family time, with lots of activities and new skills being developed. We hope they like seeing their efforts published to our website gallery. We further hope it gives them a small sense of connection with each other, spotting their friends’ creations and seeing that they are enjoying similar activities as a group.

As with other weeks, a guideline of work it set out below. Please, keep in mind, this is a suggested programme of work. Feel free to do what you can or what family life allows during these times.

It is lovely that you continue to make contact with us. We are here to help in whatever way we can and are thinking of the children every day. Should you wish, you can send us a message, photos of work, or even a simple “hello” via secondclasswork@scoil-bhride.com.

Thinking of our 2nd class children and looking forward to hearing from you.

Ms. Lanigan, Ms. Fogarty, Ms. Mc Mahon, Ms. Martin, Mrs. Troy, Mrs. Kelly, Ms. Keyes
