Week 1 update

Hi everyone,

I know that lots of great work was done at home this week, both online and offline. Well done boys and girls, I am so proud of you! A big thank you to your families for helping and supporting you.

I posted the plan of suggested work and activities for this week here on the blog to give everybody a chance to get used to using Google Classroom. If you haven’t already, please log in and say hello! You can find the plan, as well as other suggested activities and links, there in our class group. You are also welcome to share photos etc. of work and activities that your child might be doing at home, but this is completely optional. I don’t want to put anyone under pressure and I am aware that everybody’s circumstances are different. You can find more information about logging into and using Google Classroom in the message that I sent on Aladdin last Friday. If you have any questions or need a reminder of your child’s login details, please feel free to get in touch by emailing me at msmcnamee@sspeterandpauljns.ie. I will only be posting suggested work and activities for each week on Google Classroom from next Monday the 18th of January.

Have a lovely weekend!

Take care,

Ms Mc Namee.




Good morning everybody, I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and that you and your families are keeping safe and well. We are starting to use Google Classroom this week, please see the Aladdin Connect message that I sent on Friday for more information. I have attached a plan of suggested work for this week below. The same plan, as well as additional activities, challenges and support materials, will be posted on Google Classroom, as we will be focusing on using it as our main platform to communicate for the next few weeks.

This information might be useful for anyone with limited access to devices at home for accessing Google Classroom:

I can be contacted by email at msmcnamee@sspeterandpauljns.ie if you have any questions.

Looking forward to hearing from you on Google Classroom!

Take care,

Ms Mc Namee.

Merry Christmas!

It has been a very busy term in Room 8. Thank you to the boys and girls for all your hard work and to everyone at home for your support. Wishing everyone a fun, safe and relaxing break. Enjoy!

Christmas fun!

We really enjoyed watching the virtual Helix pantomime today. We got yummy chocolate lollipops from the Parents’ Association. We also enjoyed a special hot chocolate treat. We have been working together over the last few weeks to earn this treat. Yum!

Here is some more of our Christmas Art:

Have a lovely weekend everyone, just seven more sleeps! 🎅

Procedural writing

We have been working on procedural writing in English recently. We practised using ‘bossy verbs’ in recipes, instructions and directions.

Here we are working together to sequence a recipe for making a sandwich.

We all helped to write instructions for playing ‘Snap’. We then had fun playing the game in our table groups:
