Sites for Children!


Dear Parents and children. We hope everyone is keeping well and safe.

Each week we plan to upload links to various sites that children and parents / guardians may find useful and entertaining.

To start with it will be a mixed bag! Feedback would be very much appreciated as it would allow us to make the links more relevant.

Do not forget that these links can be viewed on Smart TVs, Mobile Phones, iPads etc

1: Free Books. With libraries closed and everyone being encouraged to stay at home as much as possible, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that there are hundreds of “Audio-visual books” on YouTube. These are a few of our favourites. More to follow next week.

There are also Irish Stories on YouTube!

2: Maths and English: Excellent site that the children enjoy. There are a large amount of interactive programs on this site. Children in 1st class are familiar with this site. Levels of difficulty can be changed to engage older children. This is a very large site with many programs. Click on following link.

3: PE. Out and About!! Finally, remember that Carlow has one of the finest linear walks in the country.

This is the Barrow Track. You can start from the Rowing Club in town. You may go for a spin down to Milford or Borris or Athy etc and enjoy the walk from  there!  Primroses  and  Dandelions are  now in bloom!  Bluebells are on their way.

Please note Oak Park walks are limited at the moment due to maintenance work.

Míle Buíochas. See you next week.
