Second Class

March 30th – April 3rd

Dear Parents and Children,

I hope you all are keeping safe at home. The weather has been beautiful the last few days and I really hope you enjoyed it and played as much as you could outside! Please see below some suggested work for the week ahead. As was said before, this is only suggested work and you are under no pressure to complete the activities. I understand that these are very tough times for all families and school work should not be an added worry. If you need any help, advice or additional ideas during the week, please email me on e.oshea@upperglanmirens.ie . You can also send on pictures of the children’s activities or if you would like any work checked or corrected send it on. If you would like an audio of the Irish reading, cómhrá or spelling words please let me know and I will send it on.

Please stay safe and follow the government guidelines.

Take care,

Ms. O’Shea.

2nd Class Communion Preparation

The children received the prayers, order of the mass and the songs that they will be singing for their First Holy Communion. We would encourage children to read over these and try singing the songs at home. Each year, an art competition is held to design the front and back cover of the Communion booklet. We invite the children to take part and design their own cover for the booklet over the next couple of weeks and the two winners will be chosen when we return to school. See below for examples of previous years. If you would like some audio links of the Communion songs for the children to listen to or just to have on in the background you can email me and I will send them on.  If you need a copy of the prayers and songs or the children have misplaced theirs, email me and I will send them on.

Tables:

·         This week they can work on -12. (-12 can teach as -10 and then -2 more) It’s good to show them this on a hundred square too. You could use https://www.primarygames.co.uk/pg2/splat/splatsq100.html

 

·         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ocpk-MdGH3k

·         You can continue to use this link to say our tables to the beat everyday. Try to learn four tables everyday off by heart after saying the tables through. After this, you could give your child ten sums based around this week’s tables to answer and correct them together. You can mix it up a bit too e.g. ____ – 12 = 6 (remind them to reverse and add to find the answer).

·         Some great websites for working on tables in a fun way is https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button and http://www.theschoolhub.ie/sample.php

·         Table topper sheets that children were getting for homework are available online on Folens which is free to sign up to but if you did the above with your child that is plenty for each day.

Maths Topic: Length

·         https://www.scoilnet.ie/learning-path/ref/15256/ This is a link to a few activities that might be useful for exploring length throughout the week.

·         Monday-Measuring the length of things (how long something is)

First pick three things and use your hand span (stretch out your hand and your span is from thumb to little finger across) to measure. Guess (estimate) how many hand spans long something is first and then measure with your hand span.

Thing to measure Estimate Measure

 Next you could trace around your foot and cut it out. Choose three more things to measure the length of. Estimate how many footprints it might be and then measure, carefully placing down the footprint, putting your finger at the end of it, lifting it and placing it down after your finger with no gaps.

 

Finally, using strides (a big step), estimate and measure the length (longest side) of your yard, garden, hall or a room in your house.

 

Irish

Reading (Leitheoireacht)

Read one sentence per day or entire piece depending on your child.

·         Answer the questions from Part A p 57 in homework copy.

·         Complete pg 59 – compound words

A nice activity to support this would be to play a game of go fish, and when you turn over two words that make a compound word e.g. basket and then ball which makes basketball you get a point.

 

Maths: Master your Maths: New Week-Complete Tuesday

Tables: (see above)

Maths Topic: Length (how long something is)

Repeat activities from yesterday estimating for example how many spoons long the table is and then measure. Talk about how everyone has different sized spoons, hands, strides and so everyone would have a different measurement when they measured length. So we need something standard that we all use. Centimetres (one cm is about the size of your baby finger) and metres. Try to measure out a metre (cut a piece of string) and have your child go around the house to measure things that are about a metre, more than or less than and introduce half (50cm) and quarter (25cm) of a metre.

Dear Parents and Children,

I hope you are all keeping well and are enjoying the beautiful weather today. Mr O’Connell has received guidance from the Diocesan Office about the First Holy Communion. We want to assure you that the Communion will take place however the dates are unknown at the moment. We will be in contact with you with any updates on the Communion. As it stands, we are to return to school on April 19th and the Communion was to be held the following Saturday. The original date is still in place however it would seem very unlikely that it would go ahead with the current situation.

 

I hope the children are able to follow the suggested work for this week . I would value any feedback about the work that has been uploaded and if there’s any resources you need to make it more accessible at home. Please feel free to send an email to e.oshea@upperglanmirens.ie at any stage for advice, feedback and anything else I can help with.

The priority at this moment is to keep your family safe, enjoy the weather and keep healthy.

Best Wishes,

Ms. O’Shea.

Second Class

March 23rd -27th

Good morning everyone!

I hope this finds you all in good health. Here are some suggested activities and lessons for the week. They are broken down into daily activities with some extra suggestions at the end if you would like to use them.  I have added some links too that will allow you to further explore areas of learning if you need them.  Obviously, I appreciate that situations are difficult at home and please don’t feel under pressure with all these suggestions. You would never get through everything on this list, they are just here as a resource and to help with a bit of structure to learning. If you would like an audio to support you with the Irish reading and cómhra you can email me and I will send it on. This week is National Tree Week so why not look out for different types of trees or look up some of the world’s most amazing trees and write or learn a few facts about them and the countries that they are in. Let me know if I can help in any other way. Feel free to email if you need any further support: e.oshea@upperglanmirens.ie . Have a good week and be safe.

Ms. O’Shea.

(*We were working on this when school closed and the children were doing very well with it. It is an important concept that they will need to know for 3rd class so the more revision we can do on this, the better. It is important not to confuse the children with the borrow one pay back one as I did in school myself.)

Remind the children to start with the units and say the rhyme: ‘More on top, no need to stop. More on the floor, go next door and get some more’. Always start with the units first. This link will support you if there is any confusion. https://ncca.ie/media/1439/tipsheet_helping_you_child_with_subtraction_tens_units.pdf
