Good morning everyone!
I hope that you are all keeping safe, well and happy at home. We got a lot of great work done last week and hope everyone enjoyed a safe and relaxing weekend.
For the month of June, our focus is on the outdoors. For ideas on how to explore the natural world around click here: https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/30-days-wild-schools-pack
If you do any of these, please share them on Google Classroom or you can send them through the school email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to mention my name in the subject line so I will see it. If your child completes any other activities or is working on a project, feel free to share it.
We are still looking for volunteers for our Virtual Sports Day and to show off our school’s STEM abilities. It can be something live or you can document it in pictures and video. I would be more than happy to present it for you if that’s a concern for anyone. But please, help me showcase the immense talent of 3rd Class!!
Also in keeping with our theme of Nature for the month of June I would also like to bring to your attention the brilliant resource available from Dublin Zoo. You can complete a virtual tour of the zoo itself here: https://www.dublinzoo.ie/virtual-tours-2/ and can get a tour of a Rainforest here. They have also created a worksheet based on the rainforest which I have included. If Space is more of interest you could also pay a visit to Smarttscience.com. It has been created by professor of astrophysics Stephen Smartt who also hosts a live video lesson every Tuesday at 11 o' clock via his YouTube channel. Check out his website and channel for the lessons he has already completed.
Home Learning: Week starting Monday, June 22nd, 2020
Our work this week will come from books we use in class. You can access these for free online at https://my.cjfallon.ie/dashboard/student-resources. I have attached the pages for this week again as well as the reading for our Book Club discussion. You can use Google Classroom to create a Doc to record your work or photo your work and attach it to relevant subject areas.
Spread your work out over the week - don’t try to do it all in one day! Do as much as you can. I know your parents/guardians are busy too!
