Communion 23rd May

Today should have been a day full of celebration on your First Holy Communion. Unfortunately things have not worked out as planned.

However we are looking so forward to celebrating it with you all on another day! (We would love this to be in Autumn but we have to sit tight and see how things are going over summer – we have our fingers crossed though!).

So today instead of celebrating communion, celebrate yourself!

You are amazing! You are doing so well and we are so proud of you all.

Keep up the fantastic work and always remember to keep smiling! 🙂

Monday 13th January 2020

Today was a very busy day in school with lots of learning!!
Everyone is working very hard and we are delighted with the effort being made in the new year.

Project
Half the class presented their Park projects today and the other half of the class will present their projects tomorrow. I will post pictures shortly… I am sure you will be as impressed as I am. Lots of fun learning taking place and great excitement when presenting their projects to their friends.

Park Projects Presentation Part 1

This week the children are getting to pick their own project. We had a class discussion today on what they might like to work on. They can pick any topic that interests them. we had discussions about Harry Potter, Minecraft, Fairies, Diary of A Wimpy Kid, sweets, Roman Baths, Birthday Cakes, Egypt etc… they can draw, bake, build, sew… whatever they want. As long as they have FUN doing it, can work independently and it is not a chore!!

As normal we have Work It Out every night, our dictation sentence and now with our dictation we are dictating two Irish spellings a day. Children will not be tested on this, it is the spellings that we teach every Friday in our Litriu lesson, this is not extra homework. We are teaching two words a day in school. We call out the word, they try to spell it , then we give them the correct spelling. Preparation for our Friday lesson.

Gaeilge Homework –

Read sentences at home

Dathanna

What we are learning this week:

Literacy
In literacy this week we are reading and responding to an extract from the Twits. Answering questions in full sentences, writing stories, revision of capital letters, full stops and question marks. Using a word box to fill in missing words in a paragraph and using a dictionary to look up words.

We have also started reading our new novel, The Sheep-Pig by Dick King-Smith. During the day we have DEAR time.. Drop Everything and Read, they are allowed to bring in their own novel from home for DEAR Time. Some children have also began a library loan system. They lend books that they have already read, to their friends. They write their name on their novel before they loan it out. They record who has taken what book and on what date. The child signs the book out and signs it back in when returned. A great way to use books that are lying at home and the children love the idea of having the responsibility of being the librarian!! A great idea to encourage more reading.

Numeracy
This with is all about Symmetry. A topic the children always have great fun with. In our math stations we have 5 groups. We spend 6 minutes at each station before we move onto the next. Miss Dillon is working on problem solving with one group. Problem solving requires pupils to understand and explore a problem, find a strategy, use the strategy to solve the problem and look back and reflect on the solution. The children will tell you what they do at the different stations. At my station we are counting orally as this is so important. All groups can now count in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s to 100. Most of the class can count in 3s to 30 and we began counting in 4s to 40. It would be great help if they could practice this at home, a bit of fun counting everyday. They are so proud and get so excited when they can count in 3s and 4s without making a mistake. During the next couple of weeks we will be making our way up through all the numbers from 1-10. This method is called skip counting. Skip counting is important in the development of fluency in calculation, number sense and as the basis of multiplication and division. Skip counting is a skill that develops over time growing as students continue to expand the range of numbers with which they can skip count.

Gaeilge – Caitheamh Aimsire
History – Games in The past
Geography – People at Play
Science – Thaumatrope – exploring Optical illusions
SPHE – Change and Choices

Last week our lesson in Science was based on the theme ‘ Now you see it..now you don’t! We built a thaumatrope to explore optical illusions

A huge congratulations to the class on their fantastic nativity play. Everybody made a huge effort to practice for their part and they gave it their all on the night!

As we have been so busy lately, and we are focusing on completing our Christmas assessments this week, children have been given no written homework. They should keep up their reading and tables each evening, and enjoy some free time!

We have been opening up our class advent calendar since the beginning of the month. James opened day number 1 and had to take a selfie with the class. We loved the photo and wanted to share it with you all 🙂

Monday 9th December 2019

Good Morning everyone. We have a very busy week in school with final preparations for our Christmas Play. The children are all very excited and I am loving hearing all their Elf and the shelf stories every morning!!!

Project

We have decided to give an oral language project this week. The page below is called ‘Christmas Time’. Read the questions with your child and have a nice discussion what is going on in the picture. They can draw a Christmas picture on the right side of the page. Maybe also read a Christmas story with you child. This is a very busy week in school with the play so we don’t want to over load the children with work at home.

A massive thank you to the amount of effort put into recent projects…THE STANDARD OF WORK IS EXCEPTIONAL…

Two days until our Christmas play so if you could continue practicing their lines and singing over the songs.

Week 18th – 22nd November

The weeks are flying by in the run up to Christmas and as always we are very busy in school!

We will be looking at the water cycle as part of our Geography learning this week. For their homework project, the children are being asked to identify various ways water is used in their home.

Children can record their findings however they wish (a diary, drawings, photographs etc.) However it is important to ensure they write at least one sentence about each of their findings as part of their literacy learning.

A simple idea would be to write down one or two things each evening that they have noticed involved water in their home that day.

As you know our Christmas play is fast approaching. Please ensure children are practicing their lines, paying particular attention to their cue to speak and also to their expression.

Our Gaeilge homework this week;

We have been continuing our theme of Bia (food) in Irish. Below is a link to a video containing some easy vocabulary based on the topic for you to watch at home. You could try using some of the words at home, or even discuss what you had for breakfast, lunch or dinner. E.g. D’ith mé tósta (I ate toast)

Monday 11th November 2019

A quick up date on what is happening in school this week:

English – In Literacy this week we are studying the song ‘ Over the Rainbow’. We had a great discussion today on what we would like to find over a rainbow. We sang the original version on you tube and discussed the Land of Oz in the film.

This topic brought us to our project this week… Each child has stuck a lined A4 Rainbow page into their scrap book to take home. They have to write what then would like to find at the end of a rainbow. They don’t need the internet for this project. They simply need their imagination!! Monday night you could have an oral discussion with your child. Tuesday night begin planning what they might write in their story and write a draft. Wednesday night complete their story in the page in scrap book and Thursday night practice reading their presentation.

Project 23rd – 30th September

Well done to the boys and girls for their fantastic projects about Blackrock! We are really enjoying listening to them in school.

This week children are going to be learning about the skeleton. I have given them an A4 piece of card and some cotton buds. They should try to create a skeleton shape by sticking the cotton buds to the card. Samples of this can be found online.

The children should then try to label the bones they have included on their skeleton.

To make sure children have enough time to prepare their project, and so we can listen to all projects, children will now be able to work on their project until Monday of the following week. This weeks project will be due in on Monday the 30th of September.

Outdoor Reading

We are enjoying our first novel of the year; The Giggler Treatment by Roddy Doyle!

Homework
We hope everyone is settling back in well to the school routine once more!
Just a quick note explaining homework this year;

Reading: Children have reading homework to complete every night. The pages read should be recorded on their reading sheet which should be signed at home.

Tables: Each week the class will work on a different set of tables which corresponds to their Work It Out book which they use in school. They have been given a tables sheet to help practice these at home.

Project: The class will be given various projects to complete throughout the year. This could take 1-2 weeks to complete depending on the topic. Details of projects will be shared here on our web page or in children’s homework copies.

Activity: Children will have a simple activity to complete each night. We are currently following the structure of Monday: ICT activity, Tuesday: maths activity, Wednesday: active homework, Thursday: oral language.

Dictation: Children will do one sentence of dictation each morning in school. They will then choose 1 or 2 spellings from this to learn each night. The words used in the daily dictation sentences are high frequency words. Although no formal testing will take place, the words will be recurring and so will be revisited frequently.

Time: As stated in the school homework diary; it is recommended that children in 2nd class spend 20-30 mins completing homework altogether each evening. This can be divided whichever way suits you & your child best.

We aim to make homework more enjoyable for children and hope this helps to explain it better. If you have any queries at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us through the school office!
