Hello Fourth Class.
I feel so, so lucky to have had you as my first class in Powerstown National School. You are all a credit to your parents and families. I was blessed to be your teacher this year – you are such a lovely group of children. You will never forget being in fourth class – the year of Covid 19. Thank you so much for your hard work and support this year – especially over the past four months. I’m really proud of you.
I am organising a Zoom call for this Wednesday (17th June) at 11am. It will be our last Zoom call together before the summer break. If you would like to wear your county colours for the Zoom call – I will be wearing my Tipp jersey! During the Zoom call we will do a Scavenger Hunt and a quiz. I hope you will be able to make it J

Many of us have enjoyed the good weather by going for walks, sometimes on the roads. With the increase in traffic on the roads of late we will explore some ways that we can remain safe on the roads.

You may notice lots of tractors and farm machinery on the roads and you may even live or visit a farm. It’s a very busy time of the year for farming and so we need to be careful on farms. We will explore how we can be safe on farms using the following links taken from the I.F.A. farm safety website: Watch this 7 minute clip of some children visiting a friend’s farm for a birthday party: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKzbnKPCPqI Explore the red circle entitled ‘Farm Safety’: http://agrikids.ie/safety-circle.php
