Fifth Class Work (Múinteoir Colin)

11/5/20 to 15/5/20

Hi everyone. I hope you had a great weekend. Firstly I want to say that I received some excellent Famine projects on Aladdin Connect and if anyone else has any more ready, please send them to me on Aladdin or email admin@naascns.ie.

Secondly, a big thank you to the children and parents who are sending me work on Aladdin. I love to see it and would like to see some from other children who haven’t sent any yet. If anyone has any photos of their portraits, I would love to put them up on the school website.

Listed below is the suggested work for this week. Try to get as much done as you can but again, don’t stress if you don’t get everything completed.
