I hope you are all safe and well and that everyone is keeping healthy. I know that times are difficult but I know you will all rise to the challenge. What do I always tell you, your mindset is everything. Look at the brilliant opportunity you have for a different type of learning and embrace that.
I am giving you a loose theme for this week which is Irish Traditions. Lots of you have completed your personal projects on the GAA so I thought you might like to extend that work this week. I want you to continue on with your personal project work (I know some of you have already submitted them so well done!) I will be posting the projects here during the week so you can have a look at each others work, as we can't present them in the traditional way that we would. Keep going with your confirmation preparation too please!
I am going to give you some comprehensions to use your strategies on like we would in station teaching and I want you to read, read, read and if you run out of stuff to do guess what.....you can read!!!!
I am giving you a science and an art challenge this week. Give it a go and see how you get on! Ask your parents to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or tag the school in Twitter and have a bit of fun with it!
I am providing the answers to lots of the work I am giving you so you can correct it yourself. Your own honesty and integrity will decide whether or not you look at the answer sheets before or after you try the work yourselves. You won't learn nearly as much if you look at them before hand.
If you need any help drop me an email.
Best of luck

Powerpoints on the Gaelic Revival and the GAA. We will be learning about the Easter Rising after the Easter holidays so this picks up in Ireland after the famine and will lead into that. I think you will find it quite interesting! There are questions based on the Gaelic Revival and a comprehension on The Sam Maguire Cup. There is also a crossword as an extra if you are bored!
Getting Ready for my Confirmation Pages 5, 6 and 7. This is all based on your Bible work. Can you remember some of the books of the Bible we discussed? You can research it if you want. There are six passages for you to research also.
This is one to have a bit of fun with! There is a tradition in Ireland (and other countries too) of designing something called an 'Easter Bonnet' It can be made by up-cycling an old hat or using an online template! People would then wear the hats in a parade on Easter Sunday to celebrate the end of Lent. They would be adorned with coloured feathers, eggs, chicks, flowers streamers you name it it went! Think Easter, Spring, Joy and Colour!!!
If you make one PLEASE send me a picture....and if you are very brave and I get enough people I will put together a 'virtual parade' if you send me in a short video of you with your 'Easter Bonnet'!!
