I hope you enjoyed the weekend, it was nice to see the sunshine back. This is our second last wee in the school year!
This week’s plan of work includes 3 choice boards for you to choose work from; last week’s 1950s board, our Writing board and a new Maths Choice board. I have also included a school tour trip to the Seashore.
As always do whatever you can and if you have any problems or questions send me a message on Seesaw or an email.
Scoil na Mara means school by the sea. Checkout the Scoil na Mara activity on Seesaw to go on a virtual school tour to the Seaside shore. There are three separate tours. After each tour you might like to try some of the following activities.
Write 4 things that are the same as nowadays. 4 things that have changed and 2 things that surprised you. You could refer to monuments, buildings, fashion, hairstyles, transport Pick a historical event from the 1950’s that interests you and find out more.
Singing in the Rain was made in 1952. It is a great musical with lots of singing and dancing. You could: Watch it and do a film reviewWatch part of it and describe the clothes and dancingLearn a song from the movie
Interview an older family member or family friend who remembers Ireland in the 1950s. Ask them how was life different. Ask them 5-10 questions. Share what you find out on Seesaw.
PE & Dance
The dance style popular in the 1950s was ROCK AND ROLL. Have a look at this routine to Barber Ann on Just Dance. https://youtu.be/XfMZ8hcsVqYI would LOVE to see a video of you dancing! I have been doing this routine all weekend around my house!
We are coming towards the end of the school year. I must congratulate you and your parents on the marvelous work you are doing at home. Here is the plan of work for this week. Please focus on the Maths, Irish & English. I would ask you all to please do the PAWS (Primary Aquatic Water Safety) programme because I think it is really important to know how to stay safe around water this summer.
There are lots of other interesting activities for you if you wish to try them including lots about Life in the 1950s. Do what works for you and your family. I look forward to hearing from you all on Seesaw. Can everyone please post me some of your work during the week. Also if you have any pictures or photos from Activity and Sports week, which you haven’t already sent me, please do so as I will make a Class Sports blog for you.
It’s hard to believe it’s the end of May already! I know that sometimes the days can seem long but the weeks are flying by. I am so impressed with the great work you have been doing at home and sharing with me on Seesaw.
You are all amazing!
Here is this week’s plan of work. Also attached below are some sheets you could use to practise your tables.
Here is a worksheet which if you have access to a printer you might enjoy. It relates directly to the Virtual Tour of No. 29 Fitzwilliam Street. It is very good but quite long so you may not want to print all of it.
