Extra Ideas Room 2

Dear Parents

Here are a few corrections to add to this week’s work.

Planet Maths pages 30-31 for the length. You can also use this link to download two more length worksheets. https://www.twinkl.ie/resource/roi-n-5524-measuring-length-using-non-standard-and-standard-units-activity-sheet You can just do the first page of this. We are not using rulers to measure. We can use cubes, lollipop sticks, or anything you may have at home. Here is another length worksheet. https://gmcontent.affino.com/AcuCustom/Sitename/DAM/065/CMJI.EW.10.pdf This is from a trusted source and safe to open.

Also here is a link to pictures you can use for the sentence writing. https://www.twinkl.ie/resource/t-l-2412-simple-sentence-writing-prompt-pictures

Here are some more activities for you to do if you wish. You can pick and choose what you wish to do.

Here are the words for this week’s songs and poems.

Bua na Cainte

Mo Theach

Féach ar mo theach, nach deas é,

Féach ar an dian is ar an simleár

Tá na ballaí bán, tá an doras buí,

Cé mhéad fuinneog ann?

A hAon, a Dó a Trí


Simleár Oráiste

Simleár Oráiste, Simleár Buí,

Simleár dearg

A hAon, a dó a Trí


Dhá Éan Bheaga

Dhá Éan Bheaga ina suí ar an gcrann,

Seo é Adam, Seo é Pól,

Imigh uaim a Pheadar, imigh uaim a Phól,

Tar ar ais a Pheadar, tar ar ais a Phól.


Glig, glag, glug

Glig, glag, glug,

Chuaigh luch isteach sa chlog,

Bhuail an chlog, thit an luch,

Glig glag, glug.
