3rd Class Menu of Work 8th-12th June
Hi Rang a Trí!
We are nearly at the finishing line! I hope you all had a good week and managed to get through some of the work. I know it’s hard to focus at this stage but please give it all you can for the next week or two. I would be delighted if you managed a little bit of English, Irish and Maths daily.
The weather was lovely at the beginning of the week and then the mist and cooler days arrived. I love the fresh summer days and the summer breeze blowing on my face. The wellies and coats were out in my house midweek as it’s more fun playing outside, especially in the rain! We had lots of fruit that needed to be eaten so we made smoothies. Banana, kiwi, strawberries, grapes, natural yogurt and a splash of honey were blended and the result wasn’t too bad! The little pips in the kiwi was one dislike and another was that the grapes didn’t fully blend!! Lego, drawing and 'pin the tail on the donkey' were some of the rainy day activities and I heard the word ‘Bulldog’ mentioned but chose to ignore them playing this!! The kids visited the bog one evening to see how the turf is coming along. The next outing is 'footing' the turf but the enthusiasm levels don't seem great!
Back to your school work! The topic of the week in maths is ‘Weight’. You will estimate, compare, measure and record weight using appropriate metric units. You will also do some addition and subtraction. Once again, please look at the tutorials to help you understand the chapter in your maths book. I hope ‘Hit the Button’ is still going strong for learning your division tables! You will learn about ‘Soil’ in Science and ‘Ócáidí Speisialta’ (Special Occasions) is the theme in Gaeilge. This week you will learn words and phrases about ‘An Bhainis’ (The wedding). English this week consists of R.Z, E.I.P and Hand Writing. You can access ‘Ready, Steady, Write’ on the Folens website if you don’t have it at home. There is also a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) art activity that I would love to see if you complete it. You have to pick one of the suggestions and draw it!
This is a ‘menu’ of work, not prescribed, so please complete what fits with your own household and present circumstances including plenty of outdoor activity. I do not expect all work to be completed by all students. I know it’s getting tougher to stay focused but please try and do some English, Irish and Maths.
If you have any academic questions or queries, you can contact me at the following e mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
Do not be afraid to email me if you need clarification/answers or suggested solutions to anything. You can also e-mail me some of your work or a screenshot of it! I would love to see any art work or other activities you are doing outside. I am always delighted to hear from children and parents. Have a good week and I hope you and your family stay safe, healthy and happy! Ms. Leonard
P.S. If you haven’t been in contact with me, I’d love a short e-mail just saying ‘hello’ and letting me know how you are.
