Good morning everyone and Happy St. Brigid’s Day!
Well done for all your hard work last week- I know some of it was a challenge (especially the maths!) but I’m very impressed you stuck with it! At this stage most of you will have collected your basket of books. This will take some of the pressure off constant screen time. I will still upload our guided lessons each morning so make sure you check in with SeeSaw each day- the videos are there to help you understand the new topics and concepts and fully explain what you need to do. Remember it’s also very important to send in your work so please continue to do so.
We are starting our novel ‘Holes’, this week, each Wednesday and Thursday our English activities will be based on it. You can download the questions for this week below and I will upload a guided lesson on it each Wednesday and Thursday. I see a lot of you have also logged on to Epic, the online library; I hope you are enjoying it, there are so many amazing books, videos and comics to choose from!
Your timetable of work for the week is attached below as are the questions for our novel. If you are accessing this on SeeSaw the questions will be uploaded as part of the English lesson on Wednesday and Thursday.
If you have any questions just ask, you can contact me on SeeSaw or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week,
Good Morning Everyone!
Week three already my goodness where has the time gone! Well done to everyone for their hard work and wonderful responses last week. Not only is it lovely to see your work each day but your responses also help me to see how well you are understanding each topic so it’s important to keep these up.
At the start of the year we discussed the advantages and disadvantages of remote learning. You have probably experienced some of the advantages in the first two weeks- choosing what subjects to start the day with, having a little lie in each morning, taking a tea break whenever you fancy it! I do however realize that many of the disadvantages we spoke about are starting to emerge- you miss seeing your friends, having a laugh at lunch, playing football and basketball on the yard. I certainly miss seeing you all and hearing your fantastic input, no matter how crazy it can be at times, my house is very quiet indeed! I understand it’s tough on you all but it’s also important to remember we will get through this. It can also be difficult to stay motivated but again it’s important to remain focused, the work you are completing will give you a good foundation for secondary school.
Your timetable of work for this week is attached below. Remember each day lessons are uploaded to SeeSaw with videos to help explain each topic so make sure to log on each morning. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me either on SeeSaw or my email email@example.com
Have a good week- hopefully we’ll get some more snow!
Hope you all enjoyed the PE challenges last week, there were some excellent activities to help improve your ball handling skills.
This week we have 5 indoor challenges as it could be quite chilly outside. You can attempt some or all depending on what interests you most. To prevent injury always warm up a little beforehand. Remember to take a video or photo if you can and upload it to SeeSaw.
Gotta Catch Them All:
Hand stand shirt challenge:
Basket Toilet Paper Challenge:
Get your head on the floor Challenge:
Work your socks off challenge:
Good morning everyone,
I hope you all had a lovely relaxing weekend, you deserved it after all your hard work last week. I know I’ve mentioned it already but I have been so impressed with the hard work and standard of responses. It shows a real maturity which will be of great benefit to you all as you move on to second level in August.
A timetable of work for this week is attached below in PDF format. Please remember that videos and activities to explain in more detail are uploaded on SeeSaw each morning. I fully understand that some of you may have poor internet access so try your best with what you can.
Again if you have any questions or need a little extra support do not hesitate to ask. You can contact me on SeeSaw directly or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week and keep up the super work,
Good Morning Everybody and Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a wonderful and safe Christmas. It’s very disappointing that we’re starting this term from home but just like the last time it will ensure we are all kept safe and well for the next number of weeks.
Now for the fun part:
Every Monday morning I will upload a timetable of work to both the blog and SeeSaw to be completed each day that week. It is in a PDF below so can be downloaded and printed off. Some of the activities can be completed using the books you took home before Christmas and some will be on SeeSaw. It’s important to remember that you are in sixth class now so you need to stay focused and try to complete the lessons to the best of your ability.
As we are all set up on SeeSaw, each morning I will upload your lessons for that day- this might be some videos to help explain maths, some oral work in Gaeilge or explaining how to complete an activity in your Skills Book etc. You can attach your responses and work to the activity- these can be photos of written work or typing the answers on SeeSaw etc. I will upload the answers to your maths questions each afternoon for self correction but I would still encourage you to send on a photo of your work as it helps me to understand how everybody is getting on.
Just like in class some of you may need a little extra help or may not get everything finished. If you are finding the workload a challenge please message me on SeeSaw or email me on my teacher email: email@example.com and I can give you further assistance. Similarly for anybody that is completing the timetabled work each day in a short space of time you can choose from a list of suggested activities for the week. Also if there is a topic/story/project you’ve always wanted to look in to go for it, this is a wonderful opportunity to practice your independent learning. Anyone that goes to Ms Fahy she will be in touch over the coming days.
Remember your passwords for SeeSaw are in your folders and also glued into the front of your homework diaries, along with your Spellings for Me login details. If you have lost them please message me and I can forward them on.
Fingers crossed we will all return at the start of February, you have so much to look forward to in your final six months of school life in Scoil Mhuire gan Smál!
