Message from Ms. Downes.
I hope that you and your children are keeping well during these strange and unpredictable days.
Under this unprecedented worldwide emergency situation we must follow Government and H.S.E recommendations and guidelines.
There is a likelihood that we will not be returning to school on March 30th as first suggested by the Department of Education and Skills. If that is the case, teachers will prepare another week of work for your daughter(s) to bring them up to the standardised Easter break. However I do realise that being at home with your children, whilst still working can be very challenging so I would like to remind you that any work set by the teacher is “suggested” work. Please do not be hard on yourself or feel in any way guilty if the work is not completed or it isn’t the right time to do the work. Education happens in many ways for Primary School children and our children are resilient and will bounce back and may indeed pick up other useful skills during these weeks. We would like to reassure you that the necessary curriculum will be covered when we return to school and all work will be revised multiple times.
When and where possible keep up:
- Lots of reading
- Free writing – diary, letters, make a time capsule.
- Do some practical hands on maths via cooking, maths games, board games, Lego, cards.
- Exercise and allow younger children to engage in lots of imaginative free play.
Follow us on Twitter @CorpusGns to keep up to date, where we are sharing many more ideas and activities.
May God bless all of us – pupils parents, guardians and staff of Corpus Christi G.N.S. May we all keep safe and healthy, keep washing those hands, maintain social distancing and soon be back in school together again.
