Hi all,

I hope everyone is doing well. It is hard to believe we are now in the last week of May. As per the text you got last week, we will be in the school at some stage during this week- and will organise work etc. for the children. Please complete the form on the school website if you have not already done so Thanks, Bernie

Spellings: Continue working on spellbound - Unit 31 (pg 64/65)

Grammar: -  Plurals

Plural means more than one thing. Usually you can just add an “s” at the end of the word.

 E.g 1 boy, 2 boys or 1 girl, 2 girls

When the word ends with an “s”, “x”, “ch” or “sh”- we add an “es” to the end of the word.

E.g. 1 dress, 2 dresses 1 box, 2 boxes 1 bench, 2 benches 1 brush, 2 brushes

  1. Use a plastic bottle (a mi wadi bottle or anything you have) 

  2. Cut the top third off it (just where is starts go in). 

  3. Place this piece into the rest of the bottle upside down. (Should be a v shape inside the bottle).

  4. Pour some top soil into the “v” shape.

  5. Place under a light (maybe a lamp).

(The minibeasts should drop from the “v” shape into the bottom of the bottle.)

Science:

Light: During science week we looked at light and dark. We looked at our reflections in the mirror.  We made silhouettes of each other and hung them up in the school. A silhouette like a reflection- but it blocks out the light. This week we will look at refraction.  Refraction is the bending of light. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkv0uZTP_zo

Task: Draw two arrows – one above the other.  Then pour water into a glass. Move the arrows up and down behind the glass. What happens?

Geography:

“Global Earth Day” is Wednesday 22nd April. We had been talking about recycling at school and I can’t wait to see some of the art you made before Easter. Maybe this week, children could help save the planet around the house, some examples include: sorting the recycling, switching off lights, conserving water when washing their teeth, helping with a spring clean etc. I would love to hear any other ideas the kids come up with

This are only some suggestions, please do not feel under any pressure to do all of the above. Children work at different paces and have different concentration spans. Your child’s safety and happiness is priority at this very uncertain time. Please do not hesitate to contact the school on scoilcholmcille@hotmail.com or via the school website contact page. Please also keep an eye on the padlets as more resources will be added.

 I hope everyone is keeping well and hopefully I will see you all in the not so distant future.
