Happy Monday everyone! our last Monday in May!

This week was to be a significant week in the life of our ‘Class of 2020′ , as this Thursday should have seen Ms. Hearne and her class making their way to St. Martin’s Church for their Sacrament of Confirmation. Similar to our Holy Communion class, this special occasion for the school and their families is currently postponed. We are in constant contact with Fr. O’ Reilly to find out any update as soon as we can so that you and your families can plan ahead for your special day to take place in the future! Until then, I ask that you use the wonderful gifts of the Holy Spirit, to continue to help guide and support you through these unprecedented times.

Your courage, wisdom, understanding and right judgement have been significant factors in assisting you to save lives in our country and you the ‘Class of 2020’ will be forever commended for that! Keep up the great work!

To keep us focussed and distract us from any potential upset, this week, sees the ‘Class of 2020’ take part in a transition programme to help prepare them for the move to secondary school. This will take place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10.30am! Don’t forget to join us! We look forward to seeing you online for this!

When asked about his birthday, a man said:

“The day before yesterday I was only 25 and next year I will turn 28.”

This is true only one day in a year – when was he born?

Find a number with its letters in alphabetical order.

If you are feeling a bit more artistically inclined today why not try to recreate these two drawings:

One of a local sight – that of a cow

The other – a non local tourist attraction, that we hope to see again in the future – The Statue of Liberty

Finally, if you feel like something mindful, why not give making your own ‘homemade lava lamp’ a go:

And for those who want to listen to a story:


Have a lovely day boys and girls and I will be back to top up the early finisher activities midweek. Don’t forget as always, feel free to send in any photos of your work to principal@piercestownns.com

A gentle reminder to email in the Active Week record charts to your teachers this week, so that we can get all of the certs in order to be sent out.

Chat soon, Ms. Walsh 🙂
