7th June - Good morning boys and girls. It's Trinity Sunday today! Saint Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. The shamrock is made up of three separate leaves that make one plant, just like the Holy Trinity with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit all making up one God. When I was training to become a teacher Sr. Margaret, a nun who taught me R.E. used a 'Twix' bar to explain the Holy Trinity. I've added a link below for you to look at as well. Have a lovely Sunday everyone, whatever you decide to do, enjoy!
P.S. Answer to yesterday's challenge is 6! 2+1+3=6
6th June - Good morning boys and girls. It’s the weekend! Alphabetical order below. Thanks for all your photos! Well done!
I went to TESCO yesterday. You have to stand in a queue before you get in. Today’s challenge is another Numeracy one!
As I was standing in the queue I noticed two people in front of me and three people behind me. How many people were in the queue altogether? One way to get the answer is to draw the people! Have a good day.
5th June - Good morning boys and girls. It’s Friday! Today you have a Literacy challenge. Read the words below and then put them into alphabetical order. I’m going to make my Top Hats today!
Have a great day!
4th June - Good morning boys and girls. I’m thinking of our P7 pupils as they receive an important letter today, confirming which BIG school they will be attending in September. Best wishes.
Today I have a Numeracy challenge for you. Look at my clock below. What time is it?
If I go shopping one hour before that, what time will it be?
If I arrive home two hours after the time you see on my clock, what time will it be?
Use your school clock to help you. You will need to move the hands backwards and forwards to get your answers! Good luck!
3rd June - Good morning boys and girls. People in the United States of America celebrate national egg day today!
I challenge you to find the USA on a map of the world or on a globe PLUS, find out how many types of farm animals lay eggs.
I’m going to have poached eggs and toast for my breakfast this morning. Have a good day!
Ps. It’s also the Feast of St. Kevin of Ireland. If you know anyone called Kevin say a wee prayer for them.
2nd June - Good morning boys and girls. Do you like my avatar? Yes, that picture above is supposed to be me in school! Today’s challenge is for you to make your own avatar. Mum or dad can help you. All you have to do is to log in to Twinkl on a computer, search for Avatar and follow the instructions from there. If you make one, I’d love you to send it into school. I’m going to make another one, with a different background! Have fun!
P.S. I joined The Wildlife Trusts annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild! It started yesterday! The aim is to do one wild thing a day throughout the month of June: for your health, wellbeing and for the planet. I did a few things (they’re underlined in yellow). The bumblebee went that fast, I couldn’t follow it!!!
I’ve added my photos below plus the link, just in case you want to do it too!
1st June - Good morning boys and girls. I hope you are all set for another week of home learning. Today’s challenge is a WAU one. Complete the farm animal puzzles below. Good luck.
