5th Class

Fifth Class School Work 15th – 19th June.

Dear students and parents, 

Well we have come to the last week of home school. With that in mind, I’m going to set a few fun activities for the children to do over the coming days. Try as many as you want and I would love to see a few pics at the end of the week.  You are more than welcome to continue with the English in Practice, Mental Maths, Sumdog and ReadTheory.

Some of the project ideas I would like the children to try this week are as follows:

Geography – Go to
https://www.scoilnet.ie/go-to-post-primary/collections/tours/ and take part in a virtual school tour in Ireland, Europe, International or do a Global Trek.

PE – Climb a mountain or hill. Muckish, Errigal, Lough Salt are all close enough to make a day out in the mountains a real possibility. Give it a try.

SPHE- Leading on from last week’s menus, I would like you to either cook lunch or dinner for your family. Try to make it as healthy as possible!!

As I said last week, I’ve created a link for the class to access their Sumdog usernames and passwords. Once you login, you will be able to change it to something that might be easier to remember. I will be setting Maths topics to practise as the week progresses. Link is below:

https://photos.app.goo.gl/CYhPWuvvE3K7ydDMA

As I also said last week, it is very important that students use www.readtheory.org website as it’s an excellent comprehension tool. One or two stories a day will suffice. 

I’ve also created a link to an online Irish newsletter called ELeathanach. It’s aimed at 5th/6th class and is quite enjoyable. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/?pli=1#inbox/FMfcgxwHNgkTHhTZVZfGCmXDpqQRnGKh?projector=1&messagePartId=0.1

Remember, if you have any queries, difficulties etc., feel free to email me at kilmacrangacuig@gmail.com.

Kind regards,

Mr Gallagher

Fifth Class School Work 8th – 12th June.

Dear students and parents, 

Dia daoibh uilig. As I’m sure you are aware, we are coming to the final weeks of the school year. With that in mind, I’m going to set a few activities for the children to do over the coming week. Try as many as you want and I would love to see a few examples of the project work at the end of the week.  You are more than welcome to continue with the English in Practice, Mental Maths, Sumdog and ReadTheory.

Some of the project ideas I would like the children to try this week are as follows:

Geography – Create a presentation either on Word or PowerPoint on an indigenous tribe. Five different sub headings needed of child’s choice. 

 
Science – Investigate the different soils in your area and their pH levels.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUNoABu6AdA is a very good video to show you how.
 
History – Create a family tree going as far back as you can. Possibly interview a grandparent over the phone on life for them when they were their age. Areas like school, home life, pastimes, jobs could be possible questions. 
 
Art- Constructing your name using natural materials found in the environment, drawing a portrait of your family writing five positive things about each person and one thing they could improve on. 
 
SPHE- Creating a restaurant with a menu aimed at healthy eating or your own restaurant with a fun child friendly menu. 
 
Gaeilge – create PowerPoint ar Mé Féin. Eolas ar mise, mo chlann, mo pheata, mo áit conaíthe, mo scoil, mo chaitheamh aimsire agus rud ar bith eile suimiúil. 

As I said last week, I’ve created a link for the class to access their Sumdog usernames and passwords. Once you login, you will be able to change it to something that might be easier to remember. I will be setting Maths topics to practise as the week progresses. Link is below:

Fifth Class School Work Monday 25th – Fri 29th May

Dear students and parents, 

Fifth Class School Work 2nd – 5th June.

Dear students and parents, 

Hi all. Well what a fabulous weekend. I hope everyone enjoyed the sunshine and didn’t forget the sunscreen!!

Thanks to everyone who sent samples of their work over the past week. As time goes by, the emails are getting a little lighter so it would be great if you would keep in contact or let me know if there’s anything I can do to help. 

As I said last week, I’ve created a link for the class to access their Sumdog usernames and passwords. Once you login, you will be able to change it to something that might be easier to remember. I will be setting Maths topics to practise as the week progresses. Link is below:

https://photos.app.goo.gl/CYhPWuvvE3K7ydDMA

There hasn’t been a great uptake just yet but it’s not easy when the sun is shining.

In English this week we are going to be revising punctuation and sub headings as well as creating a piece of report writing.

As I also said last week, it is very important that students use www.readtheory.org website as it’s an excellent comprehension tool. One or two stories a day will suffice. 

In Gaeilge,we will be continuing the chapter on Scoileanna leis na Blianta (School through the Years). Be sure to use the online resources on folenonline.ie. It really helps with the chapters and is reasonably fun and easy to understand.

In Maths this week we will continue revising topics already covered this year. If your child is struggling in any of these areas, please let me know and I can advice you on extra resources.

In SESE/ SPHE/ Art this week, we will be using some ideas and areas covered on the RTE School Hub including Gratitude (SPHE), Time, The Suffragette Movement and Flower Art. If you can’t watch it between 11-12, be sure to record it.

Remember, if you have any queries, difficulties etc., feel free to email me at kilmacrangacuig@gmail.com.

Mr Gallagher

Dear students and parents, 

Another weekend has flown by and we’re back at the grind stone again. Many thanks for keeping me posted on all the schoolwork being completed as well as info on sunscreen and mnemonics to remember the planets. Although I’m hearing from lots of students, I would love to hear from a few that haven’t been in contact as much.

I’ve created a link for the class to access their Sumdog usernames and passwords. Once you login, you will be able to change it to something that might be easier to remember. I will be setting Maths topics to practise as the week progresses. Link is below:

Fifth Class School Work Monday 18th – Friday 22nd May

Dear fifth class pupils and parents,

Another busy week for myself reading through projects, presentations and samples of school work. There are so many pupils doing really great work. Many of you have gone above and beyond. It’s really heartening to see so keep it up.

From next week (Monday), I’m hoping to start the whole class on an online programme called Sumdog. Some pupils are using it already and it is a fun interactive way of revising Maths skills.

In English this week we are going to be revising a bit on punctuation as well as revisiting recount writing. It would be very beneficial at this time of year to continue working on readtheory.org. It’s a great comprehension resource.

In Gaeilge,we will be doing the chapter on Turas Scoile (School Tour). Be sure to use the online resources on folenonline.ie. It really helps with the chapters and is reasonably fun and easy to understand.

In Maths this week we will be begin revising topics already covered this year. If your child is struggling in any of these areas, please let me know and I can advice you on extra resources.

In SESE/ SPHE this week, we will be using some ideas and areas covered on the RTE School Hub. If you can’t watch it between 11-12, be sure to record it.

Fifth Class School Work Monday 11th May – Friday 15th.

Dear fifth class pupils and parents,

I’ve had a busy few days over the last week reading and viewing some of the projects that were sent to me by my enthusiastic and productive fifth class pupils. I really enjoyed the various countries, each with distinctive cultures, as well as some projects on famous historical figures. Many of the PowerPoints were very professionally done and I’m sure the kids are teaching the adults a few things!

In English this week we are looking at poetry based on the alphabet. Have some fun with it and email me your poem on Friday. There’s a possibility of The Tirconnaill Tribune publishing one of them in the coming weeks!!

In Gaeilge, be sure to use the online resources on folenonline.ie. It really helps with the chapters and is reasonably fun and easy to understand.

In Maths this week we will be looking at Chance. Although not a hugely challenging topic in fifth class, it is none the less very important in secondary school as Probability is an integral part of that Maths curriculum. If possible, try to use probability language as much as possible around the house this week.

In SESE this week I want you to use the web address www.2kmfromhome.com/5km/ to plot how far you can travel inside your area. Your goal is to visit five sites/ areas of interest inside this 5km zone. You can either take a few pics or write out the list of places visited and email it on to me.

Fifth Class School Work Tuesday 5th May – Friday 8th.

Dear fifth class pupils and parents,

Many thanks to the pupils who sent me work/ activities from the past week.  I was inudatated with persuasive writing articles, projects on European countries, more lambs, active week in the bog, caitheamh aimsire audio as well as recommendations of places to visit throughout Europe. It was great and I really enjoying seeing and reading everything that was sent.

In SESE, some people have finished their country project but there is still loads of time this week to complete it. For anyone finished, I would like you to create a project/ presentation or info sheet on a famous historical person. Personal info, images, major life events, fun facts and relevance in today’s society can all be headings used.

In Maths this week we will be looking at capacity. This topic gives children the opportunity to investigate the capacity of containers. The weather’s hopefully going to be good this week so get out into the garden and do a bit of measuring. Lots of liquids in our house have the capacity measurement on the covers. Spend a little time investigating these also. Loads of videos on YouTube giving outline on capacity so have a look there too.

Continue with the Mental Maths, English in Practice, School Hub (if you’re watching), readtheory.org and library reading.

For anyone short of books to read, a good option is to download the Kindle app onto your phone. A very good website to check then is www.readbrightly.com/50-best-books-11-12-year-olds/. Children’s books on Kindle are usually no more than €5 and may be something different for them to read. 

Remember, if you have any queries, difficulties, questions or even stuck on a crossword clue, feel free to email me at kilmacrangacuig@gmail.com.

Fifth Class School Work Monday 27th – Fri 1st May.

Dear fifth class pupils and parents,

Many thanks to the pupils who sent me work/ activities from last week. I had pictures of pet lambs, brilliant projects on tourist attractions and a new pup, haiku poetry on Spring and Gaelic football, a nail biting essay on a sporting event, as well as some examples of school work also. Please keep them coming as they are genuinely of great interest to me.

In SESE this week, I have given the children a chance to do a project on a European country of their choice (not Ireland). It would be great if children could complete this on paper, Word Document, PowerPoint or any other digital platform they choose. There’s a link on Monday’s work to a checklist. You may find that a week isn’t a long enough period of time to complete this so please feel free do it over two weeks.

This coming week is also Active Home Week. Try your best to get out and about each day for at least 30 minutes! Again, I would love to see any fun outdoor activities you are doing.

Continue with the Mental Maths, English in Practice, School Hub (if you’re watching), readtheory.org and library reading.

Fifth Class School Work Monday 20th – Fri 24th April.

Dear fifth class parents and pupils,

The work below is for the coming week. Your child may find parts of it easy and some of it more challenging. Try your best to help them with it but if you’re not sure, feel free to contact me on kilmacrangacuig@gmail.com.

These are the links to the answers for English in Practice and Mental Maths if you would like to look at the answers after your child has attempted the work to see if it is correct:

https://www.kanturkbns.com/uploads/1/2/8/1/12810768/new_wave_mental_maths.pdf

https://www.kanturkbns.com/uploads/1/2/8/1/12810768/english_in_practice_5th_class.pdf

The RTE2 School Hub is an excellent resource and is quite enjoyable for adults also. It is on RTE2 from 11am – 12pmeach weekday. I would encourage parents to sit with your children while this is on and pause the programme to give the activities a go. Personally, our family has found this very enjoyable and educationally beneficial.

Maths:

This week we will be focusing on Data which is basically gathering, organising and reading information. folensonline.com has resources on this topic. A warm up using operations (+,-,x,/) is beneficialwith many online games or just doing them orally.

To access folens online, go to folensonline.ie, click register, add your details and for roll number just put in ‘prim20’. You’ll be able to access an array of resources in many subjects for free.

English:

This week we will continue with the Starlight programme. The topic this week is ironically Holidays in Ireland. Although I have not given a creative writing assignment this week, if your child would like to, they could write/ design an advertisement for a holiday activity or destination in Ireland.

As I have already said, readtheory.org is a very beneficial online comprehension tool and it would be great if everyone attempted it at least twice a week.

Gaeilge

Tg4 are starting a school hub from Monday, 10am – 10.30am. folensonline.com have loads of Gaeilge resources on the topics we are covering.

It would also be benficial if you went over some of the verbs and adjectives we have been learning at the beginning of the homework diary.

Also, Duolingo is a great site to continue to practice Gaeilge vocab.

Ms Galway/ Mrs Doherty Maths Groups

Ms Galway has asked me to remind any pupils taking part in the Nessy programme to log in using the code given. If you have misplaced the code, feel free to email me. Ms Galway and Mrs Doherty will also be mailing differentiated work for their Maths groups and are obviously not expected to complete the Maths work I have put up.

Finally…

I would love to see some pics of anything interesting you have done over the last few weeks eg nature walks or projects the children have completed or possibly schoolwork. Please feel free to email me some of this and I can put a selection of the children’s school work on the school website.

Kind regards,

Mr Gallagher
