Room 17 – Mr. Twohig’s Class
Dear Parents and pupils,
I hope you are keeping well during these challenging times.
I have put together a list of work that you can do at home but please do not feel under any pressure to complete all work. Do as little or as much as you can.
English – Complete one unit per week
Login to Edco e-books at www.edco.ie using the username: primaryedcobooks and password: edco2020
English Writing – Write in a free writing copy about any subject
Maths – Complete one unit per week
Studyladder has lots of fun maths resources www.studyladder.com
Khan Academy – https://www.khanacademy.org/
Go Noodle has lots of music which you can sing and dance to. You can put on the words to the songs by turning ‘cc’ on.
Online radio – https://ieradio.org/ There are lots of great online radio stations that you can listen to, depending on your child’s preferred music. I find that playing Lyric FM at a low volume in the background can be very relaxing.
Karaoke – There are lots of Karaoke songs available on youtube, where pupils can sing along to their favourite songs.
Relaxing Music: There is a lot of relaxing music available on youtube
Exercise/ movement breaks/ P.E. – 10 @ 10 https://rtejr.rte.ie/10at10/
10 @ 10 is also on RTE Junior at 10 am Monday to Friday
Gonoodle – This is an excellent resource. It contains a variety of activities such as songs, dances, workouts and mindfulness activities.
Flow – Mindfulness – Relax and unwind to mindfulness activities.
Fresh Start – Workout activities.
I recommend setting up an account, so that your child can pick their own character and get points. https://www.gonoodle.com/
I find that doing 3 activities (depending on the length of the activities) is a good movement break.
Drawing with Don – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CRFX5zUdbk
Mindfulness Colouring Twinkl – there are lots of colouring activities on Twinkl, which you can download and print. There are also a lot of resources for all subjects.
Twinkl is currently free. Go to www.twinkl.ie/offer and enter the code IRLTWINKLHELPS
Free drawing – Draw things you like or any subject
Guided drawing: youtube has a lot of guided drawing lessons which pupils may enjoy.
Scoilnet is a great site which has lessons for all levels and subjects https://www.scoilnet.ie/
RTE Home School Hub – This is a great initiative by RTE. It is aimed at a variety of levels and it is on RTE2 at 11am daily, which I highly recommend.
It is also available online: https://www.rte.ie/player/series/rt%C3%A9-home-school-hub/SI0000006854?epguid=IP000065950
