Our Irish Reading

To help us with our Irish reading we have a page where we can listen back to our teacher at home. He recorded himself reading the pieces and added them, along with the text. It makes reading the pieces easier at home and our parents can read with us. Click on the links below.   Sneachta   Úlla Deasa Stoirm

We also drew pictures of items we would bring if we went on an adventure into outer space. We had to tell the class what we would bring and how we might use these things on our adventure.
