Dia dhaoibh ar maidin. I hope you had a lovely St Patrick's Day. Well done to all who completed the forms and their work on Monday! It was great to see so many of responses to the work. Keep it up! I want 1st class to focus on their handwriting today. Dont worry about sharing word documents. I want you to focus on presentation and spelling! Send a picture to the school email of your work.
To wake us up this morning we are going back to one of the class favourites. It is very important for us to get up and do some exercise. It clears all the cobwebs in our body and clears our mind which gets us ready for a good day of work.
On Wednesday in English we focus on our writing.This week we are going to focus on Reccount Writing. Where we talk about something that has happened. What we are going to do is recount our St Patricks Day. Think of these questions while you're writing your story:
1. What did you do?
2. Who did you spend it with?
3.Did you go anywhere special or have special traditions?
4. Did you have a special meal for St Patricks Day?
5. How was this St Patricks Days different to last years?
6.How did you celebrate last years?
Make sure you plan out your reccount writing using the spider diagram. It is important to plan as you know what you are writing.
I am going to add a task for the writing for all classes. I want 1st class to add in one adjective to each sentence , 2nd class two adjectives and 3rd class 2 adjective and an adverb.
Adjective are words that describe a noun eg. The fat cat. Fat is the adjective because it is describing a noun which is cat. Try your best!
Adverbs are where your describing the verb eg The girl was slowly walking towards the school. Slowly would be the adverb as it is describing the verb.
Make sure to read the story again just in case you forget about it.
