Mata: lch 134, 135: Airgead. The first page is based on calculating
the change from €2. It would be great if you could put the appropriate coins in
front of the pupil. S/he would put aside the money due to the siopadóir and
count the remainder. I’m not a big fan of asking the child to subtract the
money formally in order to calculate the change. I think it is better grounding
to ‘count on’ from what is due to the siopadóir. Lch 135 is a ‘shopping’ activity. Again,
start with the appropriate amount of money for the two items and count aloud.
Writing the answer reinforces the idea that only € or c is used – not the two
together. It’s been weeks since we used coins but we will again someday!
praiticiúil: If there’s a catalogue from Aldi or Lidl in the house,
compose two shopping lists – My List, Daddy’s List, List for dinner etc. Comput
the cost of the shopping. One other activity I would like to try is to take 10
random packets from the kitchen. Pricew each one unevenly i.e. 37c, 73c not
20c! Make shopping lists of three items at a time and compute the cost.
New Frock: Read chapters 3 and 4 and answer these
What lesson was it after Art?
What did they find that was all pink?

What did the class complain about?

Journal: Scríbhneoireacht na seachtaine
We are living in historic times and there are a few suggestions here to help the children keep a record of these. These are downloadable suggestions and each one contains quite a lot of pages so only print off the ones you think you and your children will enjoy.
Bhí seo ar shuíomh Chairde na Scoile agus tá sé ana-mhaith. Tá sé I bhfoirm PDF agus é ar fáil ar leathanach Facebook Chairde na Scoile.

Weaving Wellbeing Programme. If you Google this, it appears on the website of
Outside the Box. The journal costs €3.95 from the publishers but you can

All of the
above have some great pages and a variety of activities. Pick and choose as you look through them
School Hub: RTÉ hope to let us know in advance what
will be on the Hub so that we can ‘tie in’ with the work so I hope matters will
be more streamlined next week. They also do a Homeschool Hub Podcast which
supports the programmes and the extra afternoon material and finish with a quiz
on Fridays. If you can’t find it I‘ll send you the addresses.

I had some feedback from parents during the week, all of it
very helpful. Please do not worry about getting work done. You have your own
work to do and, usually, more than one child to look after – nobody can
multitask to that extent. The accompanying list is to help you at home, not to
add to your stress.
I have been looking
at the RTÉ school hub each day and I think the bulk of the activities (bar
the Senior Maths on Thursday) could be done by the children. Worksheets can be
downloaded each day at www. rte.ie/learn
which revise what has been done. What I like about these lessons is that
they cover History, Geography and Science – all interesting in their own right.
If you can’t download them let me know and I will forward them to you. As far
as I can see they cannot be downloaded beforehand.

Mata: lch 146, 147. Ideally, these pages would be completed in the kitchen
with the children using appropriate glasses, bowls, jugs, ladles and pots. It’s
all about giving them a ‘feel’ for the volume of a litre. It may interest them
to know that a litre of water weighs exactly one kilogram and a millilitre of
water weighs one gram.
Bunlitriú Seachtain 26 Some parents have decided
not to ask the children to write the words in a sentence – that’s fine.
New Frock: Read the second chapter and
answer these questions
What happened to Bill on Monday?
Why was Bill’s Dad in a rush?
What did he say to Bill as he kissed him on
Who was whistling at Bill?
Why did Astrid complain?
What was Mrs Collins like about neat work?
Why did Bill decide not to play football?
How did Bill get knocked to the ground?
What happened when Bill tried to borrow the ball?
What area of the playground did the girls have to
What did Martin give Bill?
Keep re-reading and read up to leathanach a 11. What we want to do here is maintain fluency of
reading. Try to add an extra page each day for 4 days.

I would really like you to try to do. If you get that much done and the
children watch the School Hub you all will have accomplished a lot! Remember to
add some physical activity – you can get ideas from last week’s list of gníomhaíochtaí.

some of those can be printed off for ‘Am Suaimhneach’.
