Homework 1st Class

Dear Parent,

I hope you and your family are keeping well at this time.

Keeping our children in isolation is a very alien concept for them. There may be many changes in their behaviour and mood. Their mental well-being is of utmost priority. For that reason I am not putting any pressure on you to complete any of the following activities. The children may not want to engage at all as their motivation levels have been depleted.

The following is just an outline/framework to provide a short structured period to their day.


  • Mental Maths: (Mon-Thurs. 10 questions daily) Friday – Test.

  • New Wave English: (Mon-Thurs. 10 questions daily)

  • Spelling List: (Mon.-Thurs. 2/3 spellings daily) Friday Test.

  • News Copy: Can record events in a diary format.

Optional: The children can select one page from their textbooks daily. (Planet Maths........Starlight.........Bua na Cainte)

Core Reader: Have sent this home as a revision exercise as they have already completed this book.

It is a very stressful time for all of us and each household is dealing with the challenges in the best way that suits each individual household. Fear and anxiety surrounds us all. For the children it manifests in them in different ways.

Be gentle on yourself and each other!

Wishing you all good health in mind, body and spirit.

Berniece Connolly
