Many of the 5th and 6th class students may already be familiar with the Primary Planet magazine. It is a children’s monthly newspaper style glossy magazine. It contains 40 pages of fresh, topical and up to date features each month.
The online version is jam packed with news, sport, entertainment, activities and competitions to children in a language they understand and in a manner they can easily relate to. It also encourages children to read and write for a purpose, providing opportunities for them to contribute to the magazine and engage with our readers.

An Post is giving every household two specially-designed postcards for free. They will be delivered over the coming week with additional cards available at local post offices. They are postage-paid and will be a great activity for your children. They could write a message to someone they love, such as their grand-parents or older relatives who are perhaps at home self-isolating.
They might choose to write to someone who is a nurse, doctor or other healthcare worker. Let them know you are thinking of them and appreciate everything they are doing for our country.
So keep an eye out on your letter box as they may be delivered this week!
