Suggested Work for Muinteoir Emma’s Sixth Class

11th – 15th May

Hi Sixth Class,

Let me start by saying a massive thank you to those of you who have been sending me your work. Outstanding effort! I really enjoyed looking at the work you’ve been doing, and the variety of ways you’ve been sending it, either by sending me pictures of your copies, making Power Points, word document and some of you even making actual projects like we would in school. I’ve been a very proud teacher this week. Keep up the great work!

Again, let me remind you that you shouldn’t feel pressured to complete all of the work, like I’ve always said I really appreciate the engagement and effort you go to, but I understand it’s not as easy as coming to school every day.

I hope you’re all doing okay, helping out at home and maintaining social distancing.

Take care, be good and have a nice week 😊

M. Emma
