Wellness with Paula: ‘Mind My Selfie’

This week we focus on “Mind My Selfie”. It’s to encourage children to stop comparing themselves to others, to be gentle & kind to themselves and to appreciate how well they are doing during these difficult times.

Dear Parents,

I hope you and your families are all well.  As you now have the textbooks, this week’s work will be slightly different. I’ll still post activities for each subject but instead of posting so many worksheets, I’ll try to include pages in the books as much as possible. I’ll also post new activities throughout the week on Seesaw and these will be linked to the work for the week. I look forward to seeing all the wonderful work!

Please click here for this week’s work.

This week’s Zoom chat will be on Tuesday at 2pm for those who can make it.  I’m going to do a mini handwriting lesson so please ensure your child has the handwriting copy and a pencil ready. We’ll still have our usual chat and a game but there will also be a short demo of this week’s handwriting. As we are now working on cursive (joined) writing, the children are not familiar with the letter formation. If your child cannot take part, he/she can do handwriting in the copy in his/her own time. If your child is taking part, please wait until after the lesson to do this week’s handwriting activities.  Login details will be sent in an email. Please ensure to use these new login details and not those of previous meetings. 

As always, please continue to email me and communicate through Seesaw. I look forward to hearing from you.

All the best,

Bairbre Elwood

Local Artists Recite Their Favourite Songs and Poems

This might be something fun for your child to enjoy. We have asked local singers/writers to recite their favourite poem or song that they learned at school to share with the children of Scoil Mhuire Junior. We will post new ones each week. Perhaps you could discuss your own favourite songs or songs you remember from your childhood. Maybe you’ll recognise one or 2 of these! This week we have a song from Noel Heavey and also a poem from John McKenna. Hope you enjoy!
