English Treasury- Walk the Moon Page 58 

Begin by reading through the story on Page 58 

On page 59 start with Exercise B and use your dictionary to look up the highlighted words and put them into sentences. 

Once you have B finished read through the story again and make sure you understand the text fully.  When you have finished reading move on to Activity A and answer the questions.

Gaeilge Gaeilge– Bun go Barr 

 Pg 106 A- Look at all the different Caitheamh Aimsire (Pastimes) 

What do they all mean? Could you put them in a sentence? 

Example- Chuaigh me ag imirt peile sa pháirc. 

Thosaigh  ag canadh sa halla. 

Is maith liom ag feachaint ar an teilifís sa seomra suí. 

Try and make as many sentences as you can. 

 Pg 108 C- Try and put the jumbled up sentences in the correct order. 

 Pg 108 D- “Is maith liom a bheith ag……” (I like to …..) 

Match the pictures to the past time and write the sentence. 

 Continue to use the site listed below and try and do one or two every week. (Not too easy but not too hard) 

https://www.cogg.ie/taisce-tuisceana/ This is a good site for you to read stories and answer questions.  It is very similar to the comprehension box that we do in English.  If you scroll down you can choose the level.  I would recommend using Béar or Asal 

Find a level that you are able to do and do it like we do the comprehension box in English.  You can find the answers down the bottom of the page where you choose the level. 

Maths Continue with any revision you are doing at home.

 Page 125 is a good page for revision. 

 Pg 126 looks at adding hours and minutes and there is a video online which shows you what to do when adding when you go over 60 minutes. http://data.cjfallon.ie/resources/20691/BAM4_Tutorial_088/lessons/BAM4_Tutorial_088/index.html 

 Pg 127 looks at subtraction of hours and minutes and there is a video online which shows you how to rename with time.  This is different from when we rename in normal subtraction as there are 60 minutes in an hour. http://data.cjfallon.ie/resources/20691/BAM4_Tutorial_089/lessons/BAM4_Tutorial_089/index.html 

 Pg 128 looks at timetables and is a mixture of addition and subtraction problems. 

 Try your best on this chapter as it can be tricky!  Let me know if you need help with anything 

 Continue to use khan academy and I will be assigning different tasks that you can try but feel free to find your own tasks. Some boys have lots of work done on khan academy which is great to see.

Active HOME Week’ Challenge (April 27th – May 3rd)

As you know ‘Active SCHOOL Week’ takes place every year and is a really enjoyable part of the school year for many children. This year, because of Covid-19 it is not possible for this to go ahead right now so we are asking you to participate in the Active HOME Week challenge instead.

 

ABOUT the Challenge

The idea of the #ActiveHomeWeek challenge is to:

·        Reach out to parents/guardians to support the work that is taking place in their school

·        Support parents by providing them with ideas and a challenge format to encourage children to build physical activity into their day

·        Encourage children to find NEW ways of being physically active that they ENJOY

·        Raise awareness about the fact that children need at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day

To complete the challenge children have to find four different ways of being active every day making sure that this add up to 60 MINUTES, or more. Children are encouraged to try something NEW, have FUN with a family activity and to ENJOY the week!

 

IDEAS

There are so many great physical activity suggestions in circulation at the moment from local/national sports clubs, role models and agencies that we decided to organise them into an IDEAS word cloud graphic. All of the activities in the word cloud can be viewed ‘in action’ and ‘in the one place’ @activeflag  The Twitter feed includes activities to suit children of all ages, abilities and interests with indoor and outdoor options and ideas about how to make sports equipment out of every day household items. It’s definitely worth a look

The word cloud is designed to make it easy for parents and children to find ways to complete the challenge, but children don’t have to stick with just these ideas. They can use activities, not listed here, that they are already doing or create new activities of their own. You might decide as a school to suggest activities or to create your own school/teacher challenges! 

CHALLENGE Charts

 

Parents are welcome to return the completed challenge charts to your school in whatever manner is easiest for them, and in whatever way that suits your school best.

 

  • Hand drawn chart – Completed, photographed and sent back as an attachment to an email to Ms. Sheedy.
  • Printed out chart – Completed, photographed and sent back as an attachment to an email to Ms Sheedy.
  • Fillable PDF – Saved as a file, completed and returned as an attachment to an email to Ms Sheedy.

Send your pictures or videos of you keeping active at home to Ms. Sheedy at msheedy@charlevillecbsprimary.ie
