Welcome to the new section on the Croagh N.S. website. Hopefully you will find some activities that will help you over the next little while. At the moment, the first section has some websites that can be used for accessing information in a variety of subject areas. Further down this page, resources are organised by subject area and we will be adding to this page. It is strongly advised that grown ups monitor children’s use of this page, as pop ups, particularly in videos, are beyond our control. If children have created art work/inventions/poems etc., we would love to see them.
There are resources in this section to support the development of language and literacy skills.
In this section you will find games to help with revision of maths skills and concepts, technology which can be used to create graphs, and most importantly, problems that need to be solved.
In this section there are links to some videos for activities that can be done indoors. There are videos by The Body Coach who is creating new PE lessons every day while everybody is at home.
