6th class

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well. Below are some ideas for work but remember the most important thing is to get through these strange times.  So take these as suggestions and do not feel pressurised to do them, but the ideas are there if you want them.  I have tried to offer a structure and some variety to make the day go well.

If you have any questions or would like to sign up for Google classroom you can contact me at s.weir@ourladyoflourdesns.ie

We are hoping to set  up a video meeting through Google classroom the coming Friday so if everyone could sign up to Google classroom that would be great.

22 April

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and doing ok.

I will add work ideas to do to this website on a weekly basis. I have also started using Google Classroom. You can get an app for it for your phones so you do not need access to a computer. If you would like to join you can e mail me at s.weir@ourladyoflourdes.ie and I will send you an invitation. If the e- mail is not your name please remember to say who it is from.

If you are happy with using the website and do not want Google Classroom access it would still be great to hear from you and to hear how you are getting on.

Take care

Mr Weir
