Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend. I want to thank you all for the great work that is being done at home, both on Seesaw and in the children’s books. We seem to be getting the hang of it now and everyone is working very hard. Well done to all!

Below is a suggested scheme of work. As always there is no pressure to complete all of this work. Do as much as you are able for and in any order that you like. Ms. O’Sullivan and I will continue to put activities on Seesaw each day but this can do be done whenever you like. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at mslanigansnc@gmail.com or msosullivansnc@gmail.com.

Kind regards,

Miss Lanigan.

If we had been in school, I would have been making dioramas of the rainforest with the children. We would have been using shoeboxes for the base and using different materials such as cardboard, crepe paper, playdough, pipe cleaners, etc. to make the trees and ground. They can also use leaves and branches from trees, pictures that they have drawn or anything else they think will add to their diorama. I will attach some picture of examples. If you would like to try these at home then please send me on some pictures of completed dioramas.

Alternatively the children can go to www.drawourheroes.ie if they would like to enter a competition.



First to 50 challenge



Rainbow Moments are all of those little moments during the day when good

things happen. Maybe you played a fun game, watched a funny movie, created

something interesting, had a nice lunch or dinner, noticed something beautiful in

nature – there are lots of good things all around us, even at difficult times in

our lives. We need to train our minds to notice the good things – our minds are

already too good at noticing the bad stuff!

Write three Rainbow Moments for each day on the sheet.
