3rd/4th Class work - Monday 11th January

12th Jan 2021

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all safe and well and had an enjoyable Christmas. 

Unfortunately, what we had hoped would not happen, has happened and once again; our schools are closed and we find ourselves in the position of trying to teach remotely.

My aim for these coming weeks is to keep moving forward in our learning but also to encourage a sense of independence and responsibility in each student. The class work will be set on a weekly basis, with daily targets and activities to be completed. I would ask that one or two items are uploaded weekly to the seesaw app. Each student has a spare copy in their work pack. This copy may be used for both English comprehension work and for Gaeilge. For convenience, I have photocopied from the maths book and these photocopies may be written on to also.

This week, I am setting work from Tuesday 12th onwards. If, for any reason, you miss a day of work or a specified activity, please move ahead with the next activity set. In this way, we are all working at the same pace, at the same time and nobody should feel overwhelmed or behind in their work.

Please endeavour to do your very best with your schoolwork each day. Presentation of work and handwriting are of the utmost importance as you all know! We had made great strides with our handwriting over the past few months - let's continue to improve on this!

I will be available to contact on Seesaw daily so please feel free to contact me in regarding any class work set or any issues that may arise. I will post answers to the maths and English grammar homework on Seesaw on a daily basis which will enable the students to self-correct. We will begin our additional maths work next week (Monday 18th) beginning with Symmetry.

Ms. Corbett
