Hello to the fifth class children, well for another day or two before you become top of the food chain in HETNS and take your rightful place as sixth class students… the role models and ones that set the example for all who come after you.👩🏻🎓👨🏽🎓
Almost time to say goodbye until late August…👋 What a year this has been. Could any of us have predicted how fifth class would turn out? Not in our wildest dreams!🤯
We have put together a reading list for you, from both fifth class students’ recommendations and a few that might be new to you. Of course you don’t have to choose your reading material from this, if you have personal preferences for reading, continue with those… as long as you’re reading! 📚
We have included some websites and apps as well for games and interactive ways to continue practising English, Maths and Gaeilge at home, useful all year round, not just for rainy summer days. 📱💻👩🏾💻👨🏼💻
The reading list and websites are shared with you through seesaw.
In addition to these, we have shared the links to an end of year school disco and a reflective activity. Please logon to seesaw to receive farewell messages from your teachers.
We would also encourage you to get outdoors during this summer, lots of you have probably decided not to travel by airplane this summer to visit relatives and friends or for foreign holidays. 😖If you’re staying in Ireland (like us), day trips to the beach – Dublin is a coastal county, remember… as well as counties like Meath, Louth, Down and Antrim to the north of us and Wicklow, Wexford, Waterford and Cork to the south provide breath-taking scenery and welcome breaks from our usual environment. The Phoenix Park and Catherine’s Park, only ten minutes away from Hansfield provide wonderful wide open spaces for picnics and recreational activities like running, cycling and ball games (cricket and football). Dublin zoo and lots of farms will be open for visitors. 🏖⛰🚃🚗🛹🚲 Message is.. “just get out and enjoy what’s on offer locally, you’ll find more than you expected!”🤗🍦
Well done on all your hard work this year. We are really proud of you all. Enjoy the summer holidays and we’ll see you at the end of August.
Bernadine, Niall, Clare, Nicola and Emily
