Hi 5th Class!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend, can you believe we are starting February already?! Well done on all of your hard work last week, I love seeing your work and sometimes even your faces or hearing your voices when you read! I heard lots of great opinions last week when you all recorded yourselves which was great!
This week we continue with the topic of Éadaí in Gaeilge and WW1 in English and SESE, we move on to Length in Maths and we will celebrate St. Brigid's Day today. We will continue our 5th V 6th class P.E challenges (don't forget to earn your class some points!!), but possibly something you might find the most exciting this week is starting our Junior Entrepreneur programme! We will start our first lesson on Thursday and next week I am really hoping to get lots of great ideas for products off you all!
I have attached a suggested timetable for the week along with other activities that I have on seesaw but some children might like to print them from here. As always if you have any issues with anything just let me know, I'm here to help! :-)
Hello 5th Class!
Well done on another great week of learning last week. I know it can be very hard to stay focused and motivated when we are not in the classroom but you are all doing a great job so please keep it up :-)
A great effort was made to complete a project on Mayan Civilisation and to have it in for last THursday, well done to everyone who took part, I really enjoyed hearing about what you learned!
This week we will be starting a few new topics, in Irish we will start the theme of Éadaí, in Maths we will be working on Decimals, and English and SESE we will be looking at WW1. Don't forget about our 5th V 6th movement challenge. 5th class gathered 20 points over the course of last week so well done! :-)
I have attached a timetable for the week to guide you all along but as per usual all of our work will be on seesaw.
Looking forward to seeing lots of lovely work this week again.
Mrs. Kelly :-)
Hello boys and girls, I hope you are all keeping well. What a great first week we have had of online teaching and learning. Lots of you have been trying your best and I am so happy to see that, so well done and keep it up!
For this coming week I am attaching a timetable with a brief outline of work. It would be a good idea to print this timetable so that you have it throughout the week and you can stay on task with your work. Just like last week, your tasks will be assigned daily on Seesaw, let me know if you are having any difficulty accessing these.
Don't forget that 5th and 6th class are going head-to-head in a P.E challenge throughout this time while school is closed. Three P.E activities will be posted weekly. If you complete the task and post a photo or video on seesaw you will earn 1 point for your class... so the more of you that complete our movement challenges the more points we earn! Keep a close eye on seesaw for more infomation!! :-)
I'm looking forward to seeing lots of great work again this week. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need anything, you can send a note on seesaw or you can email me at email@example.com
Bye for now,
Mrs. Kelly :-)
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we present you with the sporting event of 2021. The Olympics? The Euros? The Six Nations? All will pale in comparison to this clash of the titans: The Great 5th vs 6th PE Challenge
Each week Ms Condron and Mrs Kelly will upload 3 challenges. Each challenge you complete will earn a point for your class. Take a photo or video of each challenge and upload it to SeeSaw. Who will win? The power is in your hands….. and legs, and core, and shoulders and well you know what me mean!
Week 1 Challenges:
Hello boys and girls, I hope you all really enjoyed the holidays and had a lovely Christmas and New Year with your families. I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. I am very disappointed that we are not all in the classroom together to start this new year but hopefully we will be in soon. In the meantime we will continue our 5th class learning online. I will now explain how this will happen.
Remember boys and girls when you post your work on seesaw only I can see it, the rest of the class cannot see it. However if you write a comment under our daily work then everyone will see that. At times I may create a group discussion task, on these tasks all children will see your comments. If there is something you would like me to share with the class, maybe something fun you have made or done, you can let me know and I will share it with your classmates.
