Outreach Work for Home

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Below you will find the links to work for home but, we must remind you all that this work is merely a menu, a list of suggestions. We do not want any family to struggle under the burden of additional stress from school. You decide what is right and possible for your children over the next few weeks. Pick and choose. Please do not see it as an additional chore that has to be done, particularly if you are undergoing other stresses at this time, as many of you are.  Anything children do not get done or have missed will be covered together when we return to school. Decide what’s right for you and your family and hopefully the suggested work will be a help rather than burden.

If you have any questions you can email us at ryan@lucaneastet.ie and sarahmc@lucaneastet.ie .

Warmest wishes,

Grainne, Ryan and Sarah.

If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again!


This week, 25th – 29th May, we are encouraging all of our students to spend a little extra time reading. Not only does regular reading help make you smarter, but it actually increases your brain power! So pick up a book this week and remember….

The more that you read, the more things that you’ll know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go!

Dr. Seuss

Now that the schools are closed, it is the best time to explore our local environment. There are so many fun things to discover just outside our front doors!

This week (18th – 22nd May), we are going on a TREASURE HUNT!

Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate!

Captain Jack Sparrow

Our grandparents are some of the most important people in our lives. They are often viewed as superheroes in the eyes of young children.

This week, 11th – 15th May, we are celebrating all of our grandparents.

We hope you join in on our weekly challenge which I have no doubt, will make your grandparents very happy!


Wow! The time is flying by and we are into the Summer months already! I hope you agree that Summer is the best time for fun activities! Drawing is always a very popular activity in the Outreach so this week, 5th – 8th May, your challenge is to draw something that makes you happy!

One of the highlights of this school year was our trip to the cinema to see Sonic the Hedgehog. We all had an amazing time and I hope it brings back many happy memories for all our students.

Here is a link to a step by step drawing of Sonic the Hedgehog which some of the students will no doubt enjoy.

You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have!

Weekly Activity Menu

Attached below is a ‘Weekly Activity Menu’ which is aimed to compliment the work which the children have already been assigned since the school closure. The tasks below are aimed to promote social & independence skills; gross & fine motor skills as well as encouraging curriculum based learning in fun and simple ways. We wish to remind you again that there is absolutely no pressure on you as parents or your children to complete the activities but hopefully they are quite simple and accessible.
