6th Class Blog
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 email@example.com
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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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!

A special message for all the boys and girls in sixth class on their last full day in Scoil Mhuire gan Smál.
Our final week! It’s hard to believe!
This week we are looking at some very important topics, not just for the summertime, but all year round.
I know we looked at internet safety already this year however as you move on to second level and begin to use technology more and more the importance of staying safe and being responsible online grows even greater.
To revise I would recommend re-watching the videos on the webwise site and complete the activities attached.
Summertime is a fantastic opportunity to head out for a cycle with your family, friends or by yourself. It is really important to be road wise when on your bike. Watch the video on cycle safety below.
Hand Hygiene and Respiratory Etiquette
A hugely important topic in our current times. Watch the videos below and come up with a catchy slogan to promote hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette that I could use in my classroom in September.
Some other activities:
Looking after yourself both physically and mentally is very important all year round and especially during stressful times like these. Below are some activities and suggestions that you may like to help support your health and well being.
I will upload any worksheets to the SeeSaw app.
Please remember to return your Educational Passport forms with your books this week as they will be sent on to your secondary schools.
Enjoy your last week, we may have a surprise or two in store before the final bell on Friday!
Yippee it's Friday!
Our final Kahoot of the year. After 8 years together it's time to see how well you know your class mates in this guess the mystery person quiz. To keep it fair on everyone please play only once. You have until next Thursday at 3pm, enjoy!

I'm sure you'll all be very disappointed to hear that this is the last page we will cover in our Busy at Maths! It's Pg. 182 and on the topic of Chance, we have covered a lot about chance already but this page deals with converting to a percentage chance. Video attached below to explain further but you should all fly through it! I will upload photos of the page itself on SeeSaw for anyone wanting to fill it in that way.
Have a good day,
Today we are looking at Pg.177 of our Busy at Maths and it deals with problem solving on the topic of capacity. To really focus on the problem solving part I will allow you to use a calculator to work out the computations. Be sure to check what units they require you to give your answer in! Video below to explain if needed.
Have a good day,
Today we are looking at the topic of Volume on Pgs. 175 and 176 of your Busy at Maths. You'll all be very relieved to hear it isn't as complicated as some of the pages from the last few days, well done on all your hard work I know it's tested your skills! Video below to explain all and I'll upload the pages to SeeSaw if you want to fill them in that way or you can do them in your copies.
Keep up the great work,
Today we are looking at Pg. 174 of our Busy at Maths, it's definitely one to get the brain cells into overdrive!! Take your time with them, there is a lot of work involved. In Q3. if you change them to litres using a decimal and put them in the correct order from smallest to largest you can use a calculator for part (i) and (ii) it will be good practice. There is a video below with a quick run through of the page, as I said it's very similar to our work from last week. Any questions just ask.
Have a good day,
Today we are looking at Pgs 172 and 173 in our Busy at Maths on Capacity, remember capacity is the amount of liquid a container can hold. They are very similar to the questions on weight last week as we are working with 1L = 1000ml. For Pg.172 you can complete it on SeeSaw of discuss it orally. Any problems you can contact me bu email or on the SeeSaw app. The video below runs quickly through all the work.
Try your best!
