Homework 12th of June

At Belmayne ETNS we value the holistic education of our children. As such a decision was made at our staff meeting to give NO WRITTEN HOMEWORK for the remainder of June. 

Allow your child to be busy with the work of the child....PLAY and BE KIND. 

Instead use this time to:

*help your parents in the house 
*Walk your dog
*Learn a song *turn off all social media for one evening 
*play /chat with your friend *visit the library
*tidy your room 
*plant a flower
*climb a tree 
*go for a walk
*play your favourite sport 
*read a book
*play a board game 
*chat to a friend
*visit an elderly neighbour/grandparents
*cook/bake a new recipe
*organise a street clean 
*make up a new game
*draw, paint, colour,create
*play some music
*dance short.....just BE A CHILD

Please email pictures of June homework activities to for our website.

The children will be given the reader Where can GG sit?, as well as the reading homework guide to complete for another short period as it is still hugely important to practice their reading each night. 

These readers will be sent home tomorrow and will be collected on the 22nd of June.

Saving the animals in Aistear!

The Aistear topic of 'The Vet' was such a great topic to explore. The children were really engaged and loved looking after the sick animals and nursing them back to health. They also got to design butterflies, create mini-beasts and make their own animals out of playdough. I think we may have a few future vets in our classroom!
