Third Class - Ms. Byrne/Ms. Kelly

Work to be Completed During School Closure

30th March-3rd April


Hello again Third Class!


I hope that you and your families are all well, at this time. I know that you are all enjoying lots of family time at home and are busy helping out around the house. Here is some work to be completed.


1. Spellbound- Complete the next week and learn the spellings. Try and test yourself or perhaps ask someone to test you.

2. Fuaimeanna agus Focail- Complete the next week and also try a little test.

3. Tables- Continue to revise all the multiplication and division tables that we have completed so far. You could also start the 7 times tables. Write them out. Can you make up some simple word problems? For example, one apple costs 7 cent. How much will 10 apples cost?

4. Math's Activities-Try some more Maths activities on the Topmarks website. Hit the button is a great game to revise your tables.- https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

5. Gaeilge- Check out www.cula4.com or download the app for some great games, shows and activities as Gaeilge.

6. SESE Project: Britain. This is our research week. Begin gathering together lots of research. You can use books, encyclopedias, newspapers, the internet and anything else you can find at home to inform your project.

Please use the following headings to help-

  • Geography (Mountains, rivers, capital city, etc.)

  • History (Britain has a vast history, so choose maybe two things to focus on, such as The Romans or perhaps some information about the World Wars)

  • Monarchy (Who is the current monarch? Who are the members of the Royal Family? Who was Henry the Eighth or Queen Victoria?)

  • Sport (What sports are popular? Any that originated in Britain? When did they host The Olympics?)

  • Politics / Current Affairs (Who is the current Prime Minister? What was Brexit? What is Westminister?)

  • Famous People (Notable writers, actors, singers, performers).


7. Book Report: Continue to complete one report per week. Don’t forget to tell us your opinion, would you recommend it to your friends to read? Marks out of ten?

8. Read at Home and Leigh sa Bhaile- continue to complete one page of each book every day. 

Extra suggestions:

 Daily Journal: Continue to write a short account of your daily activities and news in your spare copy.


Art / Craft work: We are look forward to seeing all of your artwork, completed over the past few weeks. Keep this up!


P.E. GoNoodle, Cosmic Yoga and the Joe Wicks P.E videos on YouTube are all a great way of staying active at this time. Keep trying them daily.


Science-You could download some lovely, simple experiments from Discover Primary Science www.sfi.ie and try them out at home.


Online Activities-For lots and lots of Maths and English exercises, you could look at the https://ie.ixl.com/website. You can do all of the activities online or you can checkout the activities to do during the school closure page for further activities- Activities page


Reading-You can sign up to Oxford Reading Tree for free and access lots of lovely free ebooks. www.oxfordowl.co.uk


Once again, please don't worry if you can't do the online activities. We understand that mams and dads may be using the devices for work and there is plenty of other work which you can complete without a screen.


There is a lot of work here and you may not get everything done. Just try your best to complete what you can. We hope that you are doing lots to help at home and we look forward to seeing you all soon.


Lastly, a few happy birthdays! We missed Maeve’s birthday on the 22nd so a very happy belated birthday to you Maeve, we hope you enjoyed your day! And double birthday wishes to Eadaoin and Una for Thursday, 2nd April. Hope there’s lots of cake!


Take care and all the best,


Ms. Byrne and Ms. Kelly
