5th Class Blog
Hi 5th Class,
Just a little post to let you know that I have been in touch with the Junior Entrepreneur Programme and they have told us not to worry, we will be given a new and fair deadline to submit our work. We will continue making our Super Spinners and completing our JEP folder as soon as we are back to school! :)
A few websites you might like to have a look at:
One you are familiar with... Our KiVa Programme! Feel free to make your way through the game!
Some websites to boost your literacy skills:
I have already seen some fantastic creative writing on Imagine Forest and excellent practice on our Maths on Mangahigh - Well done!
Keep safe and enjoy that sunshine!
Hi 5th Class,
Easter will be upon us very soon! Although it might not be celebrated in a way that we are familiar with, here are a few activities that you might like to engage with and try as we approach Holy Week and the celebration of Easter:
Grow in Love: We are on Theme 7: Holy Week and Easter
To access videos, songs and activities, simply login on the www.growinlove.ie website with the following details:
Why not create an Easter Hunt for any younger (or older) members of your family? Maybe using your knowledge of Easter and spring (take time to find out what flowers or plants are growing in your garden), you could include riddles, rhymes, and clues that lead to different areas of your home and garden - and could there be a prize at the end of the hunt?
Create an Easter scene of the three crosses on Galgotha using paint (add lots of water for a watercolour effect) or colored paper. Ideas attached below.
Knit an Easter Basket:
Challenge yourself - can you remember how to knit? (In through the rabbit hole, around the big tree, back through the rabbit hole and off pops she!) I have attached a few Easter ideas below - the beautiful Easter basket can be made with 2 long rectangular shapes (one for the sides of the basket, and shorter, smaller one for the handle), and one square shape for the base!
Don't forget to check the previous post for work to complete this week. If you are unsure of anything, or just want to ask a question, please feel free to email me! :) (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I miss you all and I hope you are keeping safe!

Just a quick post to let you know about a Live History Lesson that will be streamed on Facebook Live, from a Secret WW2 Bunker in Liverpool.
