I hope you all had a brilliant Easter and you got to do some nice things with your family. I was hoping we might all be back in school now but, alas, this was not to be. However we will make the most of the situation and hopefully we will get to see each other soon.
As you may know by now our Confirmation will not be going ahead on the 10th of May, but I am going to continue your preparation as hopefully you will be able to make it soon. Ok work wise this term I am going to be doing things a little bit differently to tie in with those of you who are going to be using Seesaw. I will be allocating work daily and they you can post the work back to me on Seesaw (if you are using it) and I can give you feedback. If you are not using Seesaw you just engage with the work that I post here as you have been doing already. Just a reminder, consent must be signed before I can issue you any work on Seesaw.
It is going to be a little bit different but hopefully you will find it enjoyable and we are going to try and interact as best we can!
We will be doing projects and lots of fun things, like we would in school. If there is anything in particular you would like to do let me know and I will see can I incorporate it in.
Try your best to do as much as you can. I am missing you all and hope you are all safe well and happy.
1: Master Your Maths Daily Activity plus Friday Test. (I will post the answers for the week on Friday)
2: Read at Home: Monday-Thursday Read and do questions. Also aim for 20 minutes minimum of daily reading.
3: Comhra Bheirte: Keep doing your booklet. One topic per day.
4: Keep Going with our Active breaks. You can keep it at the 3 ten minute activities or you can do a 30 minute block its up to you! Mix it up a walk/cycle/hurling/ 10@10/ dance breaks/go noodle....whatever you like!
5: Mindful time: Do something that you enjoy doing for 10-15 minutes (at least) every day. It might be some colouring, some extra reading, listening to music, baking, kicking a ball, yoga, whatever makes you relax and take some time out. The one thing I don't want it to be is screen time (if you are doing yoga and want to follow a session that's ok).
You will have three daily lessons posted in addition to these tasks. These will be either an English or Irish Lesson, a Maths Lesson and one other lesson (It might be History, Geography, Art.....etc etc.) Do your best to complete as much of the work as you can and if you are using Seesaw, post your responses on there.
