5th Class Blog
Hi 5th Class!
Here is a suggested list of work to complete this week. As always, there is no pressure to complete everything on this list, but try your best to – it will keep you on track with your learning.
Every week, I attach a Suggested Schedule of Work that suits the work for the week in question, (attached below) which might help to keep you organised.
It was great to hear from so many of you last week, 5th class! I know you are all working hard and learning at home, be it the work assigned or important life-skills! I am very proud of you all.
Our Local History – Project Work
Tips for researching your project:
http://map.geohive.ie/mapviewer.html (Website I used to access both maps of Kilkerley)
https://sites.google.com/site/geographymapskills/map-symbols (Great website for studying map symbols)
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/ (The census has gathered information about people over many hundreds of years – you might like to have a look at this website with a parent, as it can be hard to navigate!)
I found this very interesting! Enjoy! See can you find the stories from Kilkerley!
In the 1920’s and 1930’s, the government realised that Ireland was changing and was losing a lot of it's old ways and tales – so a nationwide project was set up! All children were asked to go out into their community and listen to and record stories from old neighbours/friends.

Keep sending me your work, 5th class, as I am recording all that is sent. I also love seeing those who have engaged with our online platforms – Kahoot, Mangahigh, Imagine Forest and Khan Academy. You are doing a fabulous job, keep it up!
