In the meantime, here are a few ideas to keep you busy at home.
To all parents/guardians if you see this post if you could please leave a comment so I know who's looking at the blog. Thanks!
Firstly, it's very important to stay fit and healthy while we're spending so much time at home. Here is a great way to start your day, every morning at 9 a.m. this week - PE with Joe Wicks. Just subscribe to his You Tube channel
Introducing "P.E. With Joe"
Daily Live Workouts for Kids
Join me every day next week for a home workout Starting Monday 23rd March I'm going to be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on my YouTube channel.
With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive.
Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic.
The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved.
You don't need any equipment, just tune in to my YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.
One more thing! I really need your help to spread this message. So please please share this with everyone that might like to get involved, and together we can help keep the nation moving 🏻

Lots of love, Joe x
2) For Maths counting is king! Get a piece of paper and a pencil and try skip counting in 2s, 5s or 10s starting at different numbers up to 50. If you're feeling like a challenge go as far as 100. But don't forget every time we count forwards you have to count backwards as well e.g. 1,3,5,7,9 then 9,7,5,3,1 :-)
Parents we can help by keeping an eye on your child's number formation - check all our numbers are facing the correct way.
3) Reading any nice stories? This is a great time to read lots of stories when we're stuck at home. Pick your favourite part of any one of your story books and draw a picture of it and write a little piece to explain why, "My favourite part was when...".
4) Gaeilge watch a cartoon on TG4. Don't worry about not understanding it, you'll pick up new words anyway. I'm loving Spongebob Squarepants!
I will put up some more links and material over the coming days once I know who is viewing this.
Parents, if you are in contact with any other parents from Room 15 please point them to the school website and this blog.
Please remember there is NO pressure to do any of the activities given here, these are merely suggestions.
Stay safe everybody and see you all as soon as this time has passed!
