As you may have noticed, I have been experiencing some technical difficulty with the spelling city website. I've managed to figure out a way around this. If you click on the link below, it will bring you to my page and all the spelling lists are listed. Your child will no longer need their username or password. It means that I will not be able to monitor their results as closely but the site will remain free to use. Please let me know if you have any problems.
As we are busy revising our cities, counties, lakes, mountains, rivers and towns for our Easter test, here are some useful websites you can try at home!

World Book Day was a massive success in Scoil na Mainistreach this year. We all dressed up for the day with characters from the novels we have read this year being firm favourites! There were some great costumes including Gangster Granny, Mrs Grimms, Hetty Feather and a few Harry Potters to name but a few! Even Miss Daffy dressed up as a dictionary!
We also joined up with Miss Howley's first class to engage in some paired reading. This provided a great opportunity for some of our boys and girls to read with their younger brothers or sisters and was a great success!
Ever wonder what we get up to if its raining on our PE days???
Well we've been using the website www.gonoodle.com!
This website is great for giving us activities for the mind and body on rainy days. Though carrying out these activities in our classroom isn't ideal, we still manage to keep a smile on our faces!
Pop over to our twitter account to see a video of us in action!
