Welcome to Day 16 of Learning from Home.

I hope you all had a relaxing Easter break and enjoyed the lovely sunshine in your garden. We are starting Term 3 by continuing our online lessons. You are all getting used to this way of learning now, but I will try and make it even better and easier for you all as we continue to learn from home. Remember please to give me your feedback at the end of each day so that we can make it better - How was your learning today? What worked well? What did you find too challenging? 

All pupils in Room 3, please log in Microsoft Teams te again today to complete the day's learning activities (assignments).

Once you log in in the morning, I will be there in Teams to answer any queries you may have, so just post any comments, queries or issues and I will respond asap.

We will be doing our guided reading via Video Conference on Tuesday and Thursday this week again, so I am looking forward to seeing you all then. I am also going to schedule in video conferences for our maths lessons, so I can provide more feedback and support for maths going forward in addition to the Work It Out quizzes and corrections on your Class Notebook in Teams. I will schedule videos for class maths on Monday and Wednesday each class - 4th, 5th and 6th. I am also planning on continuing with our Irish reading on Wednesday, so will schedule a teams meet up for that on Wednesday also. 

I understand that all these sessions may not suit all families all the time, but please do attend when you can and I will post the video in Teams so that you can watch it later if you miss it.

Writing

Before Easter we read two explanations in Starlight. 4th Class read 'How Comic Books are Made?' and 'Why Do We Laugh?'. 5th and 6th read 'How do Deep Sea Creatures Survive?' and "What is a Submarine?'.

Explanation writing genre Collaborative Class Project for the next two weeks

We are each going to select a question that we would like to research and write an explanation about. Have a look at some examples here to help you select a topic, however you can choose ANY explanation title that you are interested in.

Example Explanations LINK

Monday - Choose a title and enter it into the class collaborative spreadsheet along with your name. Don't worry if someone else has selected the same title as you, but do try and pick something unique.

Watch Video explaining the features in explanation writing Video LINK

Tuesday & Wednesday - Do some research into your topic and break the process or the reasons into different steps. Note your research into your project copy.

Thursday & Friday- Review your research and do your first draft on the class project powerpoint. We will work on improving and developing these next week. I will give you feedback in Teams.

Remember the class rules when working on class collaboration projects.

Geography

Rocks

We are going to be doing a class project on rocks next week, so my task for you this week is to get out into your garden and find different types of rocks. Size doesn't matter. Why not clean them and take pictures of the different types that you can find. Add your pictures to the powerpoint below and when we are learning about all the different types them next week, we will categorise them and learn about their types and formation next week.
