4th, 5th and 6th classes: Working at home!


As all schools are to remain closed for the next two weeks, I have devised a body of work which your child may engage with while at home. This work is to help keep your child engaged in their learning while schools are closed. We also encourage children to also keep reading, practice their musical instruments, play board games, bake, get fresh air and engage in outdoor activities if possible and within the HSE recommendations.

The school work outlined below ( based on the note the children received today) encourages independent learning and revision.

All projects should be attempted and the manner of display is up to the children. (poster, PowerPoint, word document, book, art work etc)

All children learn in individual ways and some children will fly through the suggested assignments while others will struggle with the workload. Please use your own judgement and base amount work completed on your child’s ability and pace.

Please dont worry about your child falling behind if they dont complete all assigned work  and put undue stress on your child to complete everything. Decide on a maximum amount of time, you as a parent feel your child can work at independently and successfully each day and after which cease work.

Click on link below for an outline of work to complete as well as a list of links and resources.

        Hi Nicole, you can just use a different one in the same subject or your homework copy. Just do what you think is best and make sense for you.

  2. Hi Ms Roughneen
    I was wondering if there is a minimum or maximum of pages to the project?

      Hi Beth,
      There is no minimum or maximum pages. It can be a PowerPoint presentation (slideshow) or a word document if you want to do it on a computer. It could also be a movie if you wanted to try that. If you don’t want to use a computer, it could be a poster, booklet, brochure or piece of art work for example.

      Hi Conor,
      Week 24 is a revision week, so I didn’t give you that one. Do you have week 23 and week 25 or weeks 25 and 26?

      Week 24 is a revision week, so I didn’t give you that one. Do you have week 23 and week 25 or weeks 25 and 26? Week 24 is a mistake in the schedule. I didn’t have the book with me when I wrote it.

      Hi Caoimhe,
      It can be in your SESE (History and Geography) copy or you can type it in Word or Pages if you prefer.

  8. Hi ms roughness, sorry to bother you but what exactly is a nature walk?
    From Nicole

    • Ciara Roughneen

      Hi Nicole, A nature walk is just a walk around your house or village where you just look at and examine the trees, plants and animals you might see. Try to identify some of the things you see. You can find information here https://www.glinskns.ie/identifying-trees/ Remember to keep checking the website for updates, information and resources.

    Hi ms roughneen
    The Irish spellings sheet I have is ticead ar an talamh for this week. Is that the right sheet because it says a different sheet on the schedule
    Kayleigh

    Reply
    • Ciara Roughneen

      Hi Kayleigh, yes that is the correct sheet. An Teilifís is the theme and Ticéad ar an Talamh p47-49 is the chapter.

  10. Hi Ms Roughneen, how do we do our book review? Do we do one for every chapter?
    From Nicole

    Reply
    • Ciara Roughneen

      Hi Nicole, No, you dont need to do one for each chapter, just an overall review of the novel. You can look at the post https://www.glinskns.ie/under-the-hawthorn-tree-2/ which is all about Under The Hawthorn Tree. There is a book report sheet on page 23 of the workbook link you could use or you can write up your own review.

    Hi Ms. Roughneen
    Lust wanted to ask what we have to do with google classroom as I saw a new assignment on it
    Thanks

      Hi Caoimhe, I will be sending an email to all parents with an suggested outline of next week’s work. We will (hopefully) be using Google Classroom and other remote tools to show your assignments and work. The link you saw is a sample assignment to try it out! As you (and all 6th class pupils ) already have your login details, you can try it out if you wish or wait until next week. Use the Template “This is Me” and edit it in Google Slides (very similar to Powerpoint) for yourself. It’s all trial and error as we try these tools out, especially as you have had no practice with the programme. I will be putting up the projects you have been working on as “assignments” so you can link those up too. (hopefully)
