I hope you are all keeping safe and making the most of your time off. I am thinking of you all everyday and missing you terribly. Please be good for your Mammies and Daddies. Make sure do a little something to help them or bring a smile to their face everyday. And remember what I always tell you about thinking positively 😀 !

Even if you are not confident to speak Irish, there are some great ways to pick up some vocabulary. One really easy activity is to pick a topic, for example: food, household objects, colours, and so on, then write down 20 words associated with that topic in a list. Next go to https://www.focloir.ie/en/ and translate the words. The great thing is that almost every word on the website has an audio recording of it so you can listen to how to pronounce the words! As a family, you could try and learn a few words every day!
Another idea is to sign up to https://www.duolingo.com/course/ga/en/Learn-Irish to learn some Irish – 5 to 10 minutes a day and who knows how fluent you’ll be when you get back!
Easter – Lets not forget Easter is just around the corner. This is the most important Christian festival of the year. Here are some Easter activities which you can enjoy. Read through the powerpoint first and then fill in the story of Easter onto the comic strips. Your Mammy or Daddy may help you to print this.
