Previous Work First Class

23rd March 2020

1st Class

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you and your family are well and healthy.

As schools remain closed, we have set out some work to keep children engaged and busy while at home. You can also continue with the revision worksheets sent home last week.

In addition to the work below, we encourage parents to revise topics we have already covered in school e.g. spellings, maths games, reader, Irish vocab, etc. Please assign your child a copybook, into which they can complete any written work. We have also included links to some of our school books that are found online.

 

Kind Regards,

Niamh and Evelyn

SESE Project – Dinosaurs

This week we would like children to create a project all about dinosaurs!
We want them to research information such as the different types of dinosaurs, their diet, where they lived, interesting facts, why they are now extinct, etc.
They can focus on one specific type of dinosaur or all dinosaurs, the choice is yours! How they present the project is also your choice, in their copy, as a poster, typed on a laptop, whatever best suits you at home.
Use the resources that are available to you at home for your research e.g. books and websites. In addition, we have also created a dinosaur folder on the Google Drive that may help you. Follow the instructions below to find it.

Best of luck and have fun!

Week Beginning 11/5/20

Hi Everyone,

We hope you had fun doing your dinosaur projects last week!

You might notice this week, there is no Read At Home planned but there is a reading comprehension and questions called ‘Night Life’ in its place. Follow the directions below to find it on the Google Drive.

We would also like to draw your attention to a fabulous Facebook page called Scéalta le Spraoi. This page supports and promotes the Irish language at home and has some brilliant resources. This week we’d like you to show your child two videos from this page. The first is a science experiment called Turgnamh Eolaíochta – Bolcán Líomóide. The second is an Irish story being read aloud called Scéal 1 – An Frog Prionsa. To make these videos more accessible, we have also added them to the Google Drive. You will need to download the videos from the GD to view them.

Have a good week!

Kind Regards,
Niamh and Evelyn
