1. ELLION

2. CELTLAWN

3.HEKEYES

4.DEDERN

Can you guess which teachers’ names we’ve mixed up? The first student to name the 4 teachers will earn themselves a homework pass!

Look carefully at the letters and think about your answers. Best of luck everyone!

Ceist na Seachtaine – ‘Feicim le mo Shiúlín…’

Tá an comórtas cáiliúil ar siúl ar an mblog arís! Bhí Rang Ms. Kelly ag imirt an cluiche ‘Feicim le Mo Shiúlín’ an tseachtain seo. Bhí siad ag foghlaim faoi ‘An Aimsir’ agus roghnaigh siad trí rud a bhaineann leis an aimsir. Níl a fhios againn cad a fheiceann siad! An bhfuil a fhios agatsa? Cuir síos do fhreagraí sna tuairimí. Caithfidh na freagraí a bheith as Gaeilge agus gheobhaidh tú pás obair bhaile má tá na freagraí ceart! (LEID: Féach ar na páistí timpeall an tseomra chomh maith!)
