Hi cailíní, 🙂
Hope everyone is well and has a lovely Easter!! I know you must be really missing school and your friends. Hopefully we will be back together soon!
There’ll be no schoolwork over the Easter break but please continue helping out at home, playing lots of games, being creative and staying active as much as possible. You can of course, if you wish, use some of the online resources I have recently suggested such as Gonoodle, Joe Wick’s youtube exercises, the online maths activities on Mangahigh and the other online websites under the different subject headings on my class blog. There are also Religion resources and links under the Religion section of the school website (along the top of the screen) so that you can catch Easter Sunday Mass if you or your family would like that.
If you would like to email me some of your work (maybe three pieces?), I would be delighted to see them. This could be work you are particularly proud of or something you’d like some feedback on. The email address is email@example.com and please put my name in the subject box.
Look after yourselves over the Easter break and be helpful and kind as always! You’ll have lots of time to fill up on delicious Easter eggs. Looking forward to seeing you all again! 🙂
Here are the answers to the Busy at Maths Area chapter and Mental Maths week 25. I’ve also linked some reminders and guidance for the Gaeilge verbs. Remember, don’t worry if you found something difficult, your best effort is what counts.

Happy Monday! Hope you and your family are well! Looking forward to seeing you all again. I miss you all and am very proud of you!! Try your best (déan do dhícheall) with the work below which has been set out day by day for you. If you find something too difficult, don’t worry about it, just give it your best effort. Remember to lay out your work carefully and neatly as you do in class and take your time. Find yourself a comfortable working space and stay organised. The time frames I’ve given are only a guidance as I know everyone works at different paces and that’s ok! Take regular busy breaks throughout the day.
Also, I would like you to self-assess your work as you go, using smiley faces; give yourself a 🙂 if you feel like you’ve made a great effort.

If you have completed the Busy at Maths weight chapter, then you can give these long division sums a go. Check the answers after (on the second photo) and if you found it difficult, go back to the maths blog and re-watch the video I put up. Don’t forget your workings and layout in your maths copy is as important as the answer! Continue with your mental maths each day and practise your tables (quiz yourself).

During this week also have some fun with creative writing. You all have great imaginations and writing skills, so put these into action over the next while. Proofread your own work after and see if you can spot and correct any mistakes, such as punctuation, capital letters and spellings. Read/perform your creations to your family. 📝🎤
Here are some ideas;
Accrostic poem, limerick, rap, song, letter, invitation, postcard, diary entry, creative story, recipe, factual report on an animal or event etc.
I hope we are also remembering to be helpful around the house and are showing kindness to everyone at home. Don’t forget to be extra nice to our moms this weekend – Use your creativity to make a special Mother’s Day card, a song/poem or do a random act of kindness to show how much we appreciate all their hard work! 💕
