Good Morning Boys!
I hope you are all well and keeping busy.
First week of LOCKDOWN - It's a very strange time for everybody.
Just remember you boys will be FINE.
It's the older people we need to mind.
So make them cards, chat on the phone and/or send the An Post Postcards just to let them know we LOVE them.
We had a SHOWCASE from Week 25 - Well done to Liam A. A great story - you can all read it HERE. It was the prompt with the 5 words.
This week has 2 prompts - you can choose 1 or you can do 2 stories.
… was this really the only…
Diamond Book Upset Lost Sprinting
Don't forget to Brainstorm your ideas first.
I really look forward to reading your stories so Thank you Boys for brightening my days!
RTE's Home School Hub is starting today.
RTE2 at 11am...Everyday.
Why not include this in your daily routine?
Try testing your SPELLINGS at Spelling City. I put up last week's spellings.
The Usernames & Passwords are HERE & at the side.
Have a good day and make sure you get lots of breaks outside in the fresh air.
I have put up the ANSWER BOOKS for
New Wave Mental Maths
English in Practice
so you can correct your own work.
Check out the right hand side of this page under Classroom Resources.
Do whatever is easiest for yourself either daily correcting or at the end of the week.
It's Friday! Yippee!
And we survived another week of Home Learning - well done everybody!
I'm still getting 100 word challenge stories which is great. Another well done!
I have set up Vocabulary Spelling City for you to test your spellings. Lots of FUN activities to do. The Log in & Usernames & Passwords are at the side.
Do Week 23 ( Includes Spelling Test Me& other games.) - It's on this week's Spelling List.
Try it if you have time.
Today is also the last day of the Seomra Quiz if you want to give it a go!
Most of your houses will have gotten these postcards by now from An Post.
Please use them.
We all have people we know that we love and can't see right now especially our Grandparents.
Send them a message to let them know you are thinking of them.
I saw this being advertised and I thought I'd share it with ye - KIDS' Disco.
Think of it as GOLDEN Time.
Last but not least, I'll post the answers to Week 28 Mental Maths later.
Have a lovely weekend and take a well earned break.
Good Morning Boys,
I hope you are all keeping well.
Today I want to talk a little bit about BALANCE. It's easy in these strange times to get stressed about all the work on the plan. Please don't.
I would like everyone to do a little English, Irish and Maths everyday ...if you can ...
but that English today might be listening to one of David Wallaims' audio books.
He is releasing a different audio book every day.
For Maths today why not try the
"Maths Party" on
White Rose Maths
Choose your Year Level - 5 ( Do 6 if that's too easy.) Watch the video and answer the questions. It looks good and would be something different.
I'm hoping to start DUOLINGO for Irish myself today. I will let you know how I get on.
Have many of you tried it?
We had another entry to the Story Competition. Well done Aidan. Another great story.
Has anyone tried the Quizzes in Seomra Ranga yet? I have cousins that do them every day and LOVE them.
Last but not least saw this today and thought it would be FUN - Design SOCKS for your entire class. ( This includes the teacher, I hope!)
Good Morning Boys,
I hope you are all keeping busy.
Again this week I was delighted with all of your 100WC Stories.
My GEMS this week are the stories by Colin & Jacob.
Super work Boys - Keep writing!
I've had another entry for the John Boyne Short Story Competition. Another great story - this time from Dan. Well done! Remember the closing date and time is today at 5pm. You would need to have them written by 3.30pm to give me a chance to send them off.
If you've time why not give it a go?
Best of Luck!
Try and Keep active, Stay at home and Keep Safe!
Good morning Boys - Hope all of you are doing OK?
Did any of you join PE with Joe over on YouTube yesterday morning at 9am? Nearly 1 million kids did worldwide...apparently. Wow!
Well done to all the boys who did their 100 word challenges. I will pick the GEMS later. If anyone else feels like entering the Short story Competition - the closing date is tomorrow. You can write about anything - in under 300 words.
Again this week, I will post the answers to this week's Mental Maths on Fri - No cheating!
Stay at home and Keep Safe!
