Aisling Byrne and Naomi Cahill have come up with a lovely drama activity. Click on the link below. watch Aisling & Naomi demonstrate the activity and then try it with someone else! Click on the link below to open the activity.
List (you can list them orally or write them down) how the personal decisions we make around what we buy and how we get rid of our rubbish affect the world we live in.
Think about the following:
- What difference would it make if we just put all our waste into the rubbish bin?
- What difference would it make if we stopped buying so many thinks made from plastic?
- What difference does it make when we re-use items instead of throwing so many things away?
- Why is it so important to reduce, re-use and recycle?
Design a poster to encourage everyone to take care of the environment.
BAKE OFF WEEK!
This week everyone in the school is challenged to bake something delicious! You can bake anything you want, sweet or savory. All I ask is that you email me in some nice photos of what you bake. Some of you have been practicing all ready! Well done to you! Now lets see what everyone bakes this week.
This week an African American man called George Floyd died in tragic circumstances. His death has caused demonstrations to take place around the world. There was even a demonstration in Dundalk. God created everyone of us in his own image. Lets us pray this week that everyone is treated with respect and shown the kindness that Jesus taught us.
Can you make a list of the ways we can show kindness to others.
Continue with Joe Wicks! He really helps get you moving!
I know some of you have pedometers and fitbits. A pedometers count how many steps you take so does a fitbit. If you have one use it this week and see how many steps you can take. Go for some nice long walks and enjoy the weather. Below is another zumba class. See if you prefer it to the one we did last week.
Keep up the counting using real coins!
If you fold some images in half the two sides are exactly the same. This means they are symmetrical. A fold line is called a line of symmetry. You can see clearly in the image below where the line of symmetry for each shape is.
Lines of symmetry can occur in nature too! Think about a butterfly or a leaf. Look at the images. Can you see where the line of symmetry is?
Can you look around you and see things in your home or in your local area that have a line of symmetry through them.
Open up old newspapers or Aldi or Lidl brochures. Can you cut out images that have lines of symmetry through them. Fold these images to show the line of symmetry.
Finally do a mirror drawing. Look at the images below to help you. You will need a mirror and half a picture or image. You can draw your own half image to start with or maybe someone can draw a half image for you. Take a mirror and position it so you can draw the other half.
