3rd Class - Class Work

22 – 26 June – 3rd Class – Mr Clancy and Mr Bolger

Hi everyone. We hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well.

This is it! 

This is the last week of work that we will be setting out for all of you. We won’t leave quite as much to do this time (you’ll be pleased about that). We have missed working with you since last March. Little did we know what was going to happen at that stage. We all thought that it might only last a few weeks. It has been a very strange time for everyone. But, this has also been a chance to learn new skills, have different experiences and a chance to spend more time with family. 

We hope that you all have a great summer and that everything in school will be back to normal in September.  

Stay safe but enjoy yourselves over the holiday period and be helpful at home of course. 

Take a look at what we have left and do what you can out of it. No pressure. Try the ‘Padlet’ link too for bonus features. Enjoy the selection of videos going with the work.

If you would like to photo/video some of your work/activities/projects (e.g. video of you presenting a project) you can send them to the following address:

lclancyolgc@gmail.com for Mr Clancy

cbolger@olgc.ie for Mr Bolger

All Mr Clancy’s videos since March can be seen at this link – click here


Try this ‘Padlet’ link. We have some extras in here that you might enjoy.

This week we want you to fill the padlet with extra videos from Youtube.com that everyone can enjoy. This must be with your parent’s permission of course.
