During this extended period of school closure, it may be an opportunity for the children (or parents) of Saints & Scholars to learn a new language. I am thinking in particular about our Primary 7 children who will be moving onto secondary education in a school which Irish is taught and to those who attended my after-school Irish club.
With that in mind, I have decided to upload and share a range of learning resources for children to try out, should they be interested.
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Irish language publishing house, Futa Fata have begun broadcasting a few minutes reading in Irish for little ones at 11am every morning via their Facebook page and on Instagram too.
