There's no limit to what you can do!

Hello Boys and Girls😀

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and didn't get blown away with the strong winds.🙈 I think the lovely sunshine will come back this week so you can have some fun outside! 😎

I hope you are happy that you got your books and copybooks home. Can you believe all the FANTASTIC work you did in class? When I was getting all your books ready, I noticed how much everyone's writing has improved since you started in First Class - writing on the lines, really good spacing, neat writing with a sharp pencil and full stops at the end of each sentence. I know from the work I have received from your Mammy or Daddy that you are still doing fantastic writing at home. Well Done boys and girls, I am so proud of you all!👏👏👏 (I think that deserves 3 big bualadh bos claps from your múinteoir)

This week, I want everyone to read and remember this everyday:

🌟You'll never be bored,
when you try
something new.
There's really no limit
to what you can do!🌟

This week, I have included some new activities for you to try. I have 2 new Irish readers 'Daideo ag siopdóireacht' (Grandad shopping) and 'Peata Áine' (Áine's pet). I wonder what will Grandad buy when he goes shopping? Will he buy some bainne agus arán (milk and bread) or will he buy some milseáin (sweets)? I wonder does Áine have the same peata as you? Also, this week I have included some fun activities for S.P.H.E. because I know how much you loved it in class and when you got to sit on the cushions/mats in class and we all sat in a circle together. As well as that, I have included a fun activity book, it will be like a diary for you to fill in and keep. When you get older you can look back at it. 📖

Once again, it was great to hear from some more of your Mammy's and Daddy's last week. I was so HAPPY to hear how hard you are working at home. You are doing a SUPER JOB. Keep it up.If your Mammy or Daddy would like to send me on some of your work to correct or even just for me to see some of the brilliant work you are doing at home they can send me an email at anytime.

Maths: Planet Maths Mental Maths p.155 Part A
Part A:
1.     A half is when two parts are the exact same. When you colour in the shape, you should have the same number of small rectangles coloured and not coloured.
2.    You can check p.157 for help if you forget what face means.
3.    Be really careful answering this question. Look where the equals sign (=) is. The equals sign = means the two sides have to add up to the same number. Look at the first part. Add what is in the brackets first. 6+3=? Use your answer and now add on 1. Now you know what the other side has to equal too. Look at the other side of the equals sign. There’s a blank box. What number will go into this box. You add 6+3 and that equals what? How much more have you to add to this side to make it the same as the other side of the equals sign.
7. Just like no.3, you need to have the two sides of the equals sign equalling the same amount/number. First side, 10+2= what? Now look at the other side of the equals sign. All you have is the number 3. Take 3 away from the value of the other side and you will get your answer.
8. Can you remember which way does the scale go when you place something heavy or light on it? Can you remember in class we weighed everyone’s pencil cases and we used a lot of copybooks to find out how many copybooks weighed the same as everyone’s pencil cases? The pencil case was heavier than 1 copybook. But was the pencil case up or down?

Busy at Maths p.122 Money
Look at each item. Look at the price of each item. Write the price of each item in the box under the item. The first one, how much is the green apple? 3c. Write 3c in the box under the green apple. Now, how much is the tomato? 3c…Write 3c in the box under the tomato. Add the price of the green apple and tomato together. 3c+3c= what? 6c. Now write 6c in the box after the equals = sign. Now try the rest by yourself.

Today, I want you to pretend you are in this siopa [shop] with Neasa, Rossa agus Clíona. I would like you to pick 6 things you would like to buy if you were in this siopa [shop]. Draw a picture the 6 things you would like to buy and write the words under each picture. I would also like you to include a price for each item like we are learning money in Maths. You can colour each picture. I can’t wait to see what you would buy.

 Music – Jamaican folk song
Today you will be learning a folk song from Jamaica. Look below and I will show you a picture of where Jamaica is in the world. It is an island beside Mexico which is beside America.

Here is the link to learn all about a song called “Hill and Gully Rider”. You need to have signed up with Dabbledoo music to have access to this link.

Hill and Gully Rider is a Jamaican folk song from the 19th Century written about the local fishermen who would risk their lives trying to catch whales.

There are 3 different versions of this song. I think you like them. You will feel like getting up to dance to some of them. They’re so much fun!

I found a colouring page of 2 whales and a fishing boat and you can colour it in if you like also.

S.P.H.E.:Time Capsule  (see link below) -If you are unable to open the link below, please send me an email and I will upload it via a different method as I think all children would really enjoy completing this booklet)

Each day this week, you can fill in 2 pages of the Time Capsule I have included below. You can keep this booklet and look back at it when you get older and remember all the fun things you did at home. It will be like a diary but full of pictures instead.
Today, you can colour in the cover of your booklet. Make it really colourful! You can fill in the second page also “You are living through history right now”. This makes you extra special because you are the only children ever to be in First Class who are doing their school work at home and not in school. When you get older you can say you were the only children ever in First Class in the Convent of Mercy N.S. who got to do their school work at home. How cool will that be!!! And even better, you can keep this book and show it to people about everything you did!
On this page, you can draw pictures of everyone who you are living with right now.

Part B:
1.     Half past – what number does the big hand point too? Hint: If it was 8 o’clock the big hand would point to 12. So what number will point to for half past?
2.    Can you think of something that is 1l? Milk carton… carton of orange juice…Do you think an egg cup holds more or less than either of these?
3.    Don’t do this question. When you get back to school you will learn how to do this. You will learn a special way on how to do this type of subtraction.

S.P.H.E.: Time Capsule
Today you can fill in the next 2 pages of your booklet – “All about me” and “How I’m feeling”
“All About Me”- if you don’t know how tall you are or what you weigh, don’t worry, why not draw something you like in each circle instead. If you have more than one favourite colour or song you can write down your 2 or 3 favourites. This your book, it is all about you so you write as many as you like.

“How I’m feeling” – what I have learnt most from this experience? Are you realising how much you like to be at home or how much you like to play with your brothers or sisters or how much you like to help your Mammy or Daddy at home or maybe you miss school and seeing your friends or playing outside with your friends.
What are you most excited to do when this is over? See your cousins, friends, go to the toy shop, go to school, play football/camogie, go back to gymnastics or music lessons, go back to the pitch on Wednesdays for ABC’s. These things will be SO special when this is over, you will be so excited, you are probably getting excited already. I know I am super excited to see my cousins and friends again and to go back to school just like you all are.
