Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well today and got on OK yesterday as a start to our stint of ‘learning from a distance’. It’s not just you are learning every day, I’m learning lots of new IT skills to help me come up with different ways to teach subjects and to get to correct your work. Hopefully we will get into the swing of it in a few days.

Thank you to all who sent in copies of the work they completed and also for the dance videos. It brought a smile to my face to see familiar faces. I hope to hear from more of you today. It was lovely to read about the ways you spent Christmas too. 

Like school, do some activities, take some breaks…movement breaks especially. 

Below is a list of today’s activities. Keep up the learning homework and revising tables we have covered to date.

Science – As we are spending more time at home, it is a good time to observe more of our surroundings. We are going to observe the wildlife in our gardens and area around us. I am including a link to a bird poster with all of the common garden birds of Ireland.

I would like you to keep an eye out for any birds that land in your garden. See can you identify the bird from the poster. Count how many different types of birds you see. If you have a bird feeder in your garden you will have a bit of an advantage 😊

January Copy – Heading – Irish Birds and Wildlife.

Pick any one of the birds from the poster or that you have spotted.

Write the name of this bird.

Find out 3 to 5 pieces of information about this bird and write this into your January copy.

Draw a picture of the bird you are writing about OR print a photo of it and stick it into your copy.

 

ART

Get thinking about construction…making things. Using recycled materials…

Over the course of the next 4 weeks we will plan, design and create one of the following two items…

1.       A shoebox bedroom/room

OR

2.       Birdfeeder

At the moment, just think about which one would appeal to you most to create.

NO NEED TO MAKE ANYTHING YET… JUST GET THE THINKING CAPS ON 😉

 

Religion

So as to continue the development of your child’s faith during this time at home, the following guide may be helpful. CLICK HERE… If the time allows, one column per week during January.

 

If this isn’t an option, why not day a prayer at your sacred space (you may have set up yesterday) and remember those who are no longer with us since the past ten months. Remember those families who have lost a loved one too. It would be lovely to remember all those healthcare workers who care for the sick in our hospitals.

11th January 2021

Hi everyone and welcome to our learning and activities page for Rang a Trí.

I hope you all had a great Christmas and are all healthy and well. You must have lots of great stories about things that happened during your break from school. It is very disappointing that we are not back in the classroom but we will do our best to learn as much as we can, as best we can over the next few weeks and hopefully we will be back to normal life in the classroom very soon. For now, just try your best to work independently. If you need help ask your parents for it and if they are unsure about anything, I will be contactable via email from 9.30-3.00pm every day from Monday until Friday. 

We will try and keep to familiar work and activities that we had been doing up until now. Please start using two new blank copybooks – one for Maths and one for everything else (one lined copy and one square copy) to keep all the activities you complete at home together in one place. Use a read biro for margins, numbering, dating and putting titles on your work. 

Here are images of the layout you need for ruling your copybook…

Dance – Choose a song and come up with dance moves for the first 30 seconds of the song. If you are feeling confident, why not get your parent to video your dance and send it to me via email. I could share them to you as a big video. 

Religion – Why not set up a little sacred space in your bedroom or any other space in your home. Place some special items on it. Make it a little routine every day that you would sit by your sacred space and have a think or say a little prayer. For some ideas have a look at this link.

If you get one set up I would love to see a photo please 🙂 

SPHE – For January we will focus on being healthier in mind and body. Today we will look at nutrition. Why not make a list for this week of all the fruit you eat per week. Then next week we will focus on adding one piece of fruit or vegetables. We will do movement activities each day for exercise. Don’t forget, as the days are getting longer to be sure and get outdoors for fresh air each day…even if it is raining. You will feel much better to have got out and about. 

 

All the best and I am looking forward to seeing your work whether it is scanned or videos.
