How to leave a comment

We'd love for parents, brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, grandparents and other pupils to leave us a comment on our blog. Remember, we're on the world wide web, so we can be viewed in any country.

A step by step guide on leaving a comment on our blog.

1. Click on the title of the post you want to leave a comment on.

2. This brings you to the full page with comments.  Scroll down to the bottom.  Here, you'll see the Post Comment Section.

 3. To put your name in, click on "Comment as" section. Click on "Name/URL" of the dropdown menu.

4. A box will pop up.  Type in your name.  Leave the URL box empty. (URL is for someone leaving a web address/ link). Click continue.

5. The box will disappear and you will be brought back to Post a Comment box.  (You'll notice your name is now in the Comment as section).  Type in your message and click "Post Comment".

6.  Last step!  You will be asked to type in a word (word changes every time).  (This is to stop any spam comments- people trying to advertise on our blog).  Type the word and then click "Post comment"

7.  Your comment is now in our inbox.  We check our comments regularly and publish them so your comment will appear as soon as we've read it first.

Up Donegal!

Calum's mum is from Donegal, so he brought in a Sam Maguire Cup to show everyone today. (Mrs White, who is from Mayo, was cheered up immensely by that!)

Sets and Patterns

In maths, junior infants are making sets of objects. Why not try making some sets at home? Put a pile of things (eg clothes pegs, pasta, buttons etc) in the middle of the table and sort them out into sets.
