Third Class

Work Schedule 30th March-3rd April

Dear Parents and Students,

I hope you are all keeping well. Well done on all your work so far and I hope students can access as much of this work as they need. You will find below a suggested outline of work for students for the 30th March-3rd April 2020.

Again I would like to remind parents of Mr Fox’s message on the homepage of our website ‘We hope that this is not creating any additional stress for parents and we ask that you access only as much of this work that you can do’.

Also, a reminder of useful websites Folens and Twinkl. Login and registration details are in the previous update.

As the Easter break is coming up, we will not expect any work to be done over these two weeks, as directed by the INTO. More important than anything else in these unprecedented times it is important to look after ourselves, our families, our neighbours and our friends.

I hope to see you all soon.

Beannachtaí na Cásca oraibh ar fad,

Mr Conneely.

Spelling and tables: If possible, have a spelling and tables quiz at the end of the week to revise over the spellings for this week. Spellings and tables could be read aloud, and students write them down then correct them after the quiz.

Butterfly Lion

On Friday students could write a book report about the Novel, that’s if the novel is finished. Here are a few tips to remember when writing a report.

·   What book is the report about? Who is the author? Where is the story set? Who are the main characters? How did the characters change? What was your favourite part of the novel? Would you recommend it to others to read?

Oral Language

Keep quizzing your children about the novel to reinforce their understanding of the novel. This can be done as you read through the novel and after every couple of pages. Students could also make a list of tricky words from some of the chapters they have read and look them up in the dictionary.

Oral Language and Spelling Games

These are a few games we use in class as warm up activities and because they are good fun.

·   Stop the Bus

·   Dictionary game: You read a definition from the dictionary and the other person must write down the word that matches the definition.

·   Name it game: Give your child a topic and have them name as many things associated with that topic in 1 minute. Give them another topic and try to beat your score.

Maths

Here is a link to the answer sheets for the Planet Maths text book if students wish to correct their work.

Symmetry

This week we will be focusing on symmetry. Here is a link to a short video to get you started on the topic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFzktJNmnPU

Quiz your child about symmetrical shapes, what makes a shape symmetrical? Can you see any symmetrical shapes in the room? Can you draw a symmetrical shape?

Here is a link to a symmetry game that can help practice spotting the line of symmetry in shapes, pictures and patterns: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/symmetry/symmetry-matching

As some of the work in planet maths require you to draw shapes and pictures in your copy, you could use baking parchment to trace the shapes or pictures and glue it into your maths copy.

Gaeilge

Folens have great resource to help consolidate and reinforce learning for topics covered in Abair Liom. Duolingo is also great for the revision of simple phrases as Gaeilge for students and the whole family. Encourage students to say the phrases out loud as they progress through the stages:   https://www.duolingo.com/

SESE

Science

This week’s focus is on transport. As part of Thursdays work, you could try and construct a moon landing vehicle from recycled materials. Have a look at this video before you start: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsftnWIjYnA

Remember your vehicle needs to be able to travel over rough ground, needs to be able to carry equipment and be light and small enough to transport in a space shuttle.

PE:

Physical education is essential to a healthy mind and body at this time. I would encourage students to exercise for at least 1 hour each day. Here are some links to a few great ideas to help you exercise both inside and outside the house:

The Body Coach will now be doing live workouts at 9am for children each morning on weekdays on his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1/featured

Just Dance is another YouTube channel which have great videos to help keep fit indoors: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChIjW4BWKLqpojTrS_tX0mg

Go Noodle is similar to Just Dance and has great videos to keep fit and get moving on them rainy days: https://www.gonoodle.com/

Art

LS Lowry was an English Artist. Lowry is famous for painting scenes of life in parks, cities and towns. Here are a few of his paintings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yc6mN1d_Nc8&t=87s

Using just pencils and colouring pencils, and LS Lowry as inspiration, try drawing your own interpretation of one of LS Lowry’s famous paintings from the video above.

Music

These two pieces are by Camille Saint-Saëns who was a French composer born 9th October, 1835. His great-aunt started teaching him the piano and, from the age of 5, he began giving private performances. Saint-Saëns was a musical prodigy and made his concert debut at the age of 10.

Have a go at listening to both pieces of music below and discuss the questions:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=5&v=ug8hCAyBaqg&feature=emb_title

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qrKjywjo7Q&feature=emb_title

Which piece did you like better and why?

What instruments can you hear in The Elephant? (double bass, piano)

Could you imagine an elephant marching around to this music?

What instruments can you hear in The Swan? (cello, piano)

What parts of this piece do you think represent a swan?

What other pieces of music do you know that are about animals?

Rang a 3 Work Schedule March 23rd-27th

Dear Parents and Students,

I hope you are all keeping well and I hope you enjoyed listening to Raidió Rang a 3. Well done on your work so far. Here is an updated version of work for the upcoming week 23rd-27th March 2020. I had originally posted this work when the school first closed, and you should continue with this work, however I have now added more content and links to help and further your child’s learning at home. I will make a similar update next week 30th March-3rd April so keep a close eye on the website.

As Mr Fox said in his message on the homepage of our website ‘We hope that this is not creating any additional stress for parents and we ask that you access only as much of this work that you can do.

Routine is key to learning at home so I would encourage students to make a timetable for weekdays to help structure their learning just like in class.

Folens have made their content available to parents. This is a useful website as you can find lots of interactive and extra content to follow on from some of the topics in student’s textbooks. It is particularly good for content in relation to Maths, English and Gaeilge. Log onto to Folensonline.ie. Register as a teacher and use the roll number: PRIM20 to create an account.

Twinkl have also made all their resources free to use and have excellent activities, worksheets and timetables that could be of use. They are offering all parents a One Month Free Membership which will allow parents access to resources related to all curriculum areas. Just go to www.twinkl.ie/offer and enter the code IRLTWINKLHELPS

Oral Language, Reading and the Novel

Continue reading and enjoying the Butterfly Lion. It is important to ask your child about the novel. Here are some ways you can do that:

$1·       Get them to orally recount parts of the story to you in order to reinforce their understanding of the book.

$1·       Orally predict what will happen next in the story after each chapter.

$1·       Ask them how some of the characters would have felt after a major event in the book.

$1·       Who, What, Where, Why And When questions are always a good to use when reading a novel.

Here is a link to the author, Michael Morpurgo, answering some interesting questions. Before you watch it, ask your child if they had any question for Michael Morpurgo what would they be? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MV9WqzT3TM

Handwriting

Keep practicing your cursive handwriting in you Write Here workbooks. You could also keep practicing your cursive handwriting in your English and Novel copies.

Gaeilge

Again, Folens have great resource to help consolidate and reinforce learning for topics covered in Abair Liom. Encourage your child to use some of the phrases in the previous chapters of the Abair liom around the house and with family members. Games such as ‘Deir Ó ‘Grádaigh’ and Bingo (With spellings from this weeks F&F) are good warm up activities.

Duolingo is also great for the revision of simple phrases as Gaeilge for students and the whole family. Encourage students to say the phrases out loud as they progress through the stages: https://www.duolingo.com/

Maths

This week we are focusing on number patterns and sequences. Folensonline have great online games to practice and get a grasp on this topic. Practicing counting in 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, 20s, etc. can help with number sequence. Here is a video to introduce the topic:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Re3nbmqVaU

Some games we use in class as warm up activities are countdown, 4 rolls to 100, and of coarse SLAPS! The students and well versed in these games and could play them with family members as a warmup activities. SLAPS is a great game to recap on tables too.

PE:

Physical education is essential to a healthy mind and body at this time. I would encourage students to exercise for at least 1 hour each day. Here are some links to a few great ideas to help you exercise both inside and outside the house:

The Body Coach will now be doing live workouts at 9am for children each morning on weekdays on his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1/featured

Art

Create a Doodle. We did them before in class, but this time why not try to make a Doodle about Easter. Here is a link to a video which shows you how to start: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4N882MPTPQ

Before you start your Doodle think of all the things to do with Easter and try to fit them all into your Doodle.
