6th Class Blog
I've uploaded the answers to A Titanic Maths Problem and Master Your Maths Week 24 below. You can use these for self-correction. I know there may have been some questions that you didn't fully understand maybe make a not of these and ask me to explain them when we return to school (or if you really need to figure it out you can email me on the class email!)
Hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well. I know it can be difficult to remember with all that’s going on that Easter is approaching so some of the activities this week have an Easter theme to try and lift the spirits!

Remember try your best with the activities given, you do not have to complete every single one. I understand that not everyone has access to great wifi (myself included!) and that others may have to help out in the family or that some activities might be a little challenging. The priority at this time is keeping everyone safe and well.
Missing you all,
Hope you’re all keeping well and enjoying the beautiful sunshine.
For anyone that might be finding the work in Small World a little challenging I have added some activities on the same topic of plants below. You can read them online and answer the questions orally or download them. The answers are included.
Boys and girls that go to Mrs Donnelly, Mrs Johnston or Ms Fahy there are lots of great ideas on the SET blog on this website. To practice reading you might like to take a look at is the Oxford Owl website.
There are lots of free online books to read.
On Monday I will upload the answers to the Titanic Maths Challenge and the answers to the first week of Master Your Maths.
Talk to you all on Monday,
Hope you are all keeping safe and well.
With the beautiful weather and spring in the air it’s a great opportunity to get outdoors for some learning in the garden.
In your Small World Geography and Science read Unit 4 on Plants and try to complete some of the following activities as well as the written activities on the unit. For anyone that was absent on the last day you can access the Small World books through the CJ fallon website
To access CJFallon's books online:
1. Go to my.cjfallon.ie
2. Click on 'Student Resources'

Read Pg.21 – Find 6 plants-anything that grows not necessarily a flower- in your garden/ around your house (they don’t have to be mentioned on Pg.21)
Read Pg. 22 – Watch some videos about plant and animal life in the rainforest
Read Pg. 23- Pull up some weeds in your garden. Can you identify the parts of the plant mentioned on Pg. 23- look out for the roots especially!
Read Pgs. 24 and 25- perhaps you might like to try some planting of your own. It’s a great time of year to plant potatoes – follow the experiment on Pg. 24 to help you out.
Here are some related websites if you’d like to do some research of your own:

After completing the unit, choose one or more of the following pieces of writing:
Listen to some the following track (or all of it if you like!). You might like to use it as an opportunity to take some time out to relax or use it as inspiration to create a piece of artwork or even to create a piece of Stop Motion on the topic.
As I’ve said before if you have any questions you can email me on the sixth class email address. Try your best with any of the work given and make sure to get plenty of physical activity in during the day too- even if that means the odd Tik Tok dance move thrown in here and there!
