Hello Ladies and welcome back to another week of school at home!
This week we have a new chapter with an old topic in maths – percentages! There’s a lot of work in Busy @ Maths, so you just do what you can, don’t feel that you have to finish every page. I’m also giving you a large topic in History – there’s a whole lot to listen to, but not a lot of writing to do. This topic is a good chance to work on your note-taking skills!!
I’m hoping to take delivery of a new microphone for my computer this week, so with a bit of luck (and some finger crossing), I’ll have improved my recordings on Seesaw in no time! 🤞🤞
Here’s the work for the week – all the additional stuff is up on Seesaw!!
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!! 🌤🌻 Try your best with the work set out for you and stick to a routine as much as possible with busy breaks. Don’t forget to check Seesaw daily for support material, activities and resources, especially for maths as this week’s maths is quite tricky. Just do what you can and if something is too difficult, please don’t worry, just skip it and move onto the next question. 😊
Hope you all had a great weekend!! It’s been so lovely hearing from you on Seesaw and seeing some of your work. Keep up the excellent work you’ve been doing! 👏
Try your best with this week’s work below. Just do what you can as I know everyone is different and some days are better than others. Remember to correct your maths each morning from the previous day before moving onto that day’s maths work. If you get any questions incorrect, try and figure out where you went wrong. Don’t forget to check Seesaw daily for support material, activities and resources. 😁
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!☀ Below is the work for this week. Keep an eye on Seesaw daily for resources and guidance under the ‘Activities’ section. Below are the answers to last week’s Abair Liom too as I forgot to upload them on Friday, sorry! 😊
This week in maths we are starting ‘The Circle’ pg. 148-151. If you haven’t managed to get hold of a protractor or compass for some of the activities in this chapter, please don’t worry about it. Just do the other activities and if you manage to get hold of them at a later date, then you can go back and complete those activities. 😊
Hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing bank holiday in that glorious sunshine!! Below is the work for this week. Reminder that there will be guidance for mainly maths and Gaeilge on Seesaw during the week under ‘Activities’ as well as some other enjoyable activities, so keep an eye on Seesaw daily.
We will also now be posting the mathsanswers to each page the next morningso that you can correct that page before moving onto the next page. So for example, on Wednesday morning you can correct your answers from Tuesday’s page before starting Wednesday’s work. This will help you know if you are on the right track. You will find these answers on my class blog under my new ‘Maths answers blog‘ and also on Seesaw.
Next week (May 11th – 16th) we will be starting a new maths chapter, ‘The Circle’. For this chapter you will need a maths set with aprotractorand a compassto complete some of the activities. Hopefully you will be able to get hold of these items before we start the chapter. If you can’t get hold of them, please do not worry, just skip the activities that require them.
I am very proud of all the hard work you’ve been doing!! These are certainly challenging times and you are an absolute credit to yourselves!!
Here are the answers to this week’s Mental Maths (week 27) and Capacity chapter pg. 170-173 and also the Gaeilge. Take your time when correcting. If possible use a red pen like we do in class. I’ve put the answers on Seesaw too, which I’ll be doing from now on. Throughout each week there will also be support (mainly for maths and Gaeilge) on Seesaw under “activities” as a lot of you have already seen. 🙂
Have a great weekend and enjoy the bank holiday. Chat to you again on Tuesday. Take care and stay safe! 🙂
Hope everyone is well! It was great seeing more of you on Seesaw recently. During this coming week, it would be brilliant if you could upload one piece of maths work, English work and Gaeilge work and one other piece from another subject of your choice. Your English piece of work could even be a recording of yourself reading a short piece of text such as a poem for me to listen to. 🙂
I will also be putting up some maths guidance on Seesaw throughout the week under ‘Activities’ so keep an eye on this on a daily basis. For the Gaeilge please use the Caitheamh Aimsire help sheet below and also Abair Liom online where you’ll be able to listen to the text/comhrá etc. for pronunciation.
Below is the work set out for you for this week with the links to resources. Remember to work neatly, stay organised, try your best and take busy breaks. Don’t forget to self-assess your work, checking for COPS (capital letters, organisation, punctuation and spelling). I will post the answers to maths and Gaeilge on Friday.
Hope you’ve all had a good week and enjoy the weekend. Seesaw (an educational online learning app) was set up earlier in the week with details sent to your parent’s email. It was great hearing from those who sent a few photos of their work on it. Next week it would be great if you could send me the last page of your handwriting book which you have completed so I can see how you’re getting on. Below are the answers to this week’s maths 3D shapes chapter and Gaeilge pages. Take your time when correcting your work. I’ll put them on Seesaw too.
Hope you all had a relaxing, enjoyable Easter break and filled up on loads of delicious chocolate!! I know these can be difficult times and I miss you all. I’m looking forward to seeing you again. I will be in contact with you again soon so please keep an eye out.
Below is the work for the week, set out day by day. Please try your best with it. I know everyone works at a different pace and everybody’s circumstances are different. I will post the answers to the maths and Gaeilge on Friday.
Stay organised and present your work neatly!
If you find something too hard, move on to something else and try come back to it later. If you still cannot do it, don’t worry about it.
Self-assess your work. Give yourself a smiley face at the end of the page if you have done your best
Take breaks – have a snack, do some go noodle or get some fresh air.
I’ve assigned Mangahigh 3D shapes activities as an option. Log in details were sent before the break to parent’s email.

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! 🙂

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.

Hope everyone is well and hope to see you all soon!! Please remember to help out at home and be kind! 🌻
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).
If the girls have access to an iPad or computer there’s plenty of online games to keep them going.
– Parent/adult sets themselves up as teachers with their own username, password and enter Prim20 as the school roll number.
– Search Abair liom G (5th class)
– Select resources.
– Select resource type Gníomhaíochtaí agus Cluichí for interactive games.
During this week also have some fun with creative writing. You all have great imaginationsand 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! 💕
Here are the answers to Mental Maths week 23 which you should have completed by today.
Here are the answers to the first 3 pages of the Weights chapter (pg. 135-137). If you haven’t gotten as far as 137, don’t worry you still have until next Friday to complete the chapter pg. 135-139. If you get any of the questions incorrect, try and figure out where you went wrong. 🙂
Hope the home learning is going well and you all had a lovely Saint Patrick’s Day! ☘️ Remember to take busy breaks and try keep to a routine over the next couple of weeks. I will be posting the answers to Mental Maths and Busy at Maths on Friday so you can self-assess how you’re getting on so far. You have until next Friday (March 27th) to complete the work I’ve put up so far so make sure you pace yourselves.
Here are some powerpoints on Saint Patrick and Ireland. See if you can create a quiz and quiz your family 🙂
Due to school closures until March 29th, we have linked below some work to be completed over the two weeks. Remember that your layout (steps) for maths is as important as the answer. Find yourself a comfortable work space and try to stay organised! Give everything your very best effort! I’ll keep in contact with you over the blog. 🙂
Page 47 – 51 (1 page per day). Look up the definitions of any words you don’t know the meaning of and record them in your English copy.

Hi girls – welcome back to another week of ‘Home for School’. I hope you are coping well with the work? Just remember that there is no pressure – you just do what is right for your home and your grown-ups! I’m switching the resources on to Seesaw as much as possible, but will still continue to post the week’s list of work here on the blog. I’m trying to upload as much support material as I can on Seesaw. This comes up as an ‘Activity’ on Seesaw, but bear in mind, it’s not extra work – it’s help with the work I’ve already given you. If you find that you need more work, just let me know!
