3rd Class Ms O’Driscoll

Hi All.


I hope you are all well and Happy St Patrick’s Day.


This is a whole new way of learning. As much as possible treat these weeks, not as holidays but as learning days!

Monday to Friday each day after breakfast put on your learning cap for about 2 hours.

I have included lots of ideas for interesting activities, work and learning websites. Feel free to  do anything Mr Kelly puts up too!


Each day try to read and write with a pencil. Use your homework copy if you have it but any lined paper will do. Write a diary entry and tell us how your day went. I know I don’t have to tell some of you bookworms to read but we can read anything – a book, a website, a kindle, a comic, a magazine, cereal boxes, instructions for a game. I will put suggestions on your Seesaw Account. Class log in QR code is at the end of this note.


Each day practice counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 8s,9s,10s.

I will put Maths assignments on Mathletics for everyone. Remember to use Mathletics as often as possible!!


Each day look at Seesaw for a simple Irish activity.
