4th Class Work at Home – Week: May 5th – May 8th 2020

·         All book publishers have made their books available from their websites. Here you can find additional home work. This may be very useful if you wish to have your child doing extra Gaeilge work. The online version of Bun go Barr reads the story in each chapter out loud. Go to the page number of the story you wish to hear and click Multimedia.

·         As before, we understand the challenge of getting work completed at home when your child cannot ask questions. If your child is unsure on a question, there is no problem leaving it blank.
