1st Class, Mrs. O’Donoghue: 8th to 12th of June

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all keeping well! A huge ‘well done’ on all the amazing work that you have been doing over the past number of weeks! I am so proud of all my class! I know it is hard to do schoolwork at home, especially when the weather has been so good, but you have all worked so hard, and the good news is that the summer holidays are only around the corner!

As we wind down to the summer break, I have less suggested work uploaded for this week and I have not assigned set days to complete it on. From here on, please only complete what is practical for you and your son to complete on a given day. As always, if you have any questions or would like a phone call to discuss anything, please email me at eodonoghue@togherboys.com or message me through Microsoft Teams.

Hope you all have a good week!

E. O’Donoghue
