Home Learning Packs – April

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It’s been a testing time for everyone over the past few weeks. We have been working on the best way to support parents and pupils during this time.

To facilitate and support Home Learning, we will be providing our next Home Learning packs for all pupils next week. These packs will be available for collection from the school next Wednesday, 1st April, between 10am and 1pm. Social distancing and safety procedures will be observed during this time to ensure the safety of all involved. Parents are asked to call the school phone when they arrive at the school, 065 6820070, and a member of staff will bring the pack to you or your car. If you cannot call, please knock on the front door and we will pass you the pack.

If you cannot travel to the school, due to lack of transport or self-isolation, please let us know by emailing info@eetns.ie or by texting Mary on 0858569152. We will call you and arrange for the pack to be delivered to your house.

Packs will include two weeks worth of work, to cover the period after the Easter Holidays to the end of the month, 20th April until the 1st May. They will include a suggested sample timetable of what pupils in each class could do each day. They will also include the stationary supplies needed to complete the work.

All work sent out is revision work planned to be completed by pupils independently. We appreciate that this is a difficult and stressful time for many families, and in many cases parents are trying to juggle work and managing kids at home. There is no obligation for any of the work to be completed, and it is not intended to cause any additional stress for families. It is there as a support to keep the pupils ticking over, and give a structure for families who would appreciate having guidance in this. Each pack will also include an email address to contact your child’s class teacher in case you have any questions, or would like to send on any photos of your activities. Trina is also available at info@eetns.ie.

Additional online and digital resources will continue to be uploaded to the school website and social media pages for those who would like to engage with additional activities.

There is still some uncertainty around when schools will re-open, and should we be directed reopen, the packs can be returned to school with your child.

Keep in mind all activities your child is doing at home, from free play, to lego, to colouring, to helping with jobs around the house is learning. Walks outside, conversations with parents and reading stories together are the most valuable learning at a time like this. Our priority for all out pupils and families is to look after your wellbeing. If there is anything we can do to help or support with this, please get in touch.

Stay safe,

Trina
