Reading- Poetry

The Road not Taken by Robert Frost

Questions

1. What images does the poem create in your mind? A young man walking in a wood, stopping where the road divides into two paths and deciding which road he will take.

2. Is the poem written in the past present or future? Why do you think this? I think that it is written in the future because at the end of the poem the poet tells us that he took the road ‘less traveled by and that has made all the difference’. This means that he is writing the poem in the future when he knows how his life has turned out. What do you think?

3. What do you think the word diverged means? Look it up in your dictionary – to separate from another route and go in a different direction

4. What choice does the poet make? He took the ‘other as just as fair- because it was grassy and wanted wear.

5. What decision did the poet  make and why? He took the roaI less traveled because he thought he would lead a different life by making that choice

6. Do you think that the poet will ever get a chance to travel the other path?In don’t think so because as the poet says ‘ knowing how way leads onto way I doubted if i should ever come back.’

Our School Tour was to take place on June 12th and we were going to go to the Outdoor and Adventure Centre in Tagoat, Wexford – we were booked in to try Kayaking, Battlezone Archery , Team Challenges. We were also supposed to call into Super Macs on the way home! On this page write about why the tour did not take place and how you feel about that. Maybe write about what you were looking forward to – being with friends, bus journey, activities.I know that this is not a very nice task but your Confirmation Book is a keepsake and will be a reminder of what life was like in June, 2020 – Do your best and remember to colour in all pictures.

Number Theory

We begin a new topic in Maths this week.  Today we take a look at Multiples and Common Factors.  

Factors are whole numbers which are multiplied to get a product (answer when multiplied)

Factor x factor = product     3 x 4 = 12

A Multiple is the result when 2 numbers are multiplied – we can also say a multiple is the product of two or more factors

If we look at factors of 24 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24   now the factors of 12 –1, 2,3,4,6,12,  Now we can see the common factors which are underlined. We can also see the Highest Common Factor (HCF)

With Multiples – just count up in that number – Multiples of 5 are 5,10,15,20,25 and so on.

Complete Qs 1-4 on the page attached  Number Theory Multiples & Common Factors Tuesday

*** Mathletics – I have selected Number Theory on Mathletics to match up with our work in Maths – Try to work your way through each of the activities throughout the week – Begin with Factors , Multiples

RELIGION

Today I’d like you to go to the page entitled ‘What Being Confirmed Means to Me’. I would like to to think about what being confirmed means to you and your family.

Some thoughts which may be of help –

Being Confirmed helps me to learn more about my faith.

Being Confirmed helps me to develop a friendship with God.

Being Confirmed gives me an opportunity to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit – Wisdom, Understanding, Right Judgement, Courage, Knowledge, Reverence, Wonder and Awe in God’s presence. These Gifts will help me live as God wants me to.

After being Confirmed and having received the Gifts of the Holy Spirit then I will show the Fruits of the Holy Spirit in how I live my life – I will show Love, Kindness, Gentleness, Joy, Peace,  Patience, Faithfulness and Self Control

Being Confirmed means that I get to celebrate with my Family – (It may mean that Grandparents , Aunties and Uncles, cousins and friends come to visit, describe how you plan to spend the day, etc.)

That’s the lot for today.

Keep up the good work.

Mrs Brazil

No prizes for guessing that I love Fridays! It’s so hard to believe that we have completed another week. I know that it can be difficult to stay engaged with school work after being away from our classroom for so long now. Try your best to keep up the work for this last few weeks and focus on the positives – the lovely weather, the annoying brother or sister, Mam or Dad who also can be a little annoying (sorry parents) but they love  you! Try  to think of Reasons to be Cheerful when you are feeling a little ‘fed-up’ with it all.

ART

I’m very conscious when giving Art activities that not all of you have the same Art supplies that we have in school so I have chosen an activity today that uses items that most of us may be able to lay our hands on.

Foil Embossing: Tin foil and Sharpies (Try other Markers here if you have any)

You will need:

cereal boxes,

aluminum foil, tin foil

yarn,/string

white glue,

coloured Sharpies.

Samples

Foil Embossing with 4, 5, and 6 grade. Use cereal box, yarn, aluminum foil, glue, and sharpies | a faithful attempt

How to ..

Cut out a piece of card from a cereal box.

Draw  a basic design

Use wool/string ( thick if you have it)

Cut a piece of tinfoil bigger than your piece of card – about 6cm of an edge which we can fold to back of card. do not glue this yet.

Then put the foil over the top and beginning at the centre gently rubbing in the foil around the wool/string. Take your time here, if you are careful your design will be nice a clear.

Once you have finished  pressing in the foil, glue the foil at the back.

Then colour in your design in the colours of your choice – Do not colour the raised parts where the wool or yarn is. Best of luck!

Send in some images of your work.

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe and well.

Mrs Brazil

Activity A – Answers

1. The king banished all the old people from the kingdom because he thought old people were useless and stood in the way of younger men with ideas.

2. The old man took his grandson’s shoes and cut away the soles so that the shoes would seem whole from above but the young man’s feet would be on the ground.

3. The farmer was gloomy because he thought the richer men would look far and wide for the most exotic blooms but he could only choose from the wild flowers that grew around the farm.

4.  The princess raised her eyebrows in astonishment and the king wanted to know why the farmer thought this was a suitable gift for her. The farmer said that nothing is more beautiful than a field of wheat and that nothing smells more beautiful than freshly baked bread. 

5. – You may have different answers here depending on what you thought the moral was – Older people are important because they have knowledge and experience to pass on. Money is not everything.  Sometimes the simple things are the most beautiful.

RELIGION

As you know May is often known as the Month of Mary in the Catholic Church. Many families say the Rosary, Visit Grottoes, and have May altars in their homes.

A Bealtaine (May)Custom

When we were growing up the nuns taught us that May was Mary’s month. To their smiling approval we made May altars ( yes, even the boys). We brought fresh flowers every few days and said fervent prayers to Mary. Somehow we just knew she appreciated it. It felt nice and special and gave us a warm feeling. The nuns were delighted when, in answer to their questions, we vied with each other as to who had the best altar. It all made us feel close to the Blessed Virgin who lived in that mysterious, faraway place: Heaven

The May Altar decorated with mayflowers, here Marsh Marigold

I have attached a page from your religion book containing a story about Mary for you to read.

Religion – Mary

We all know the Hail Mary which is the most commonly used prayer when praying to Mary.

Here is another one for you to say:

Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,

Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope!

To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.

To thee do we send up our sighs,

Mourning and weeping in this valley of tears!

Turn then, most gracious Advocate,

thine eyes of mercy toward us,

and after this our exile,

show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Oh clement, Oh loving,

Oh sweet Virgin Mary.

Amen.

That’s it for today.

Mrs Brazil

Good Morning All,

I hope that you are all well and have had an enjoyable weekend. Wasn’t Saturday a beautiful day? Hopefully any of you with older brothers or sisters due to sit the Leaving Cert. exam are finding that they are  happy with the decision made by the Minister of Education and are feeling less stressed. We are all getting more used to ‘Working from Home’ now, however I still prefer the classroom!

Mr Moran has purchased a school license for a Maths Programme called ‘Mathletics’- some of you may have used it before? I will be setting it up over the next few days and giving you your Passwords and Usernames (via classdojo) to enable you to log in.

Today we are going to read an article about Native Americans

Answer the following Questions in your English copy please. Remember Date, Rule, Heading

  1. When did European settlers first arrive in North America? (p.44)
  2. How did the ability to hunt on horseback affect Native American culture? (p. 48)
  3. What is the Trail of Tears? (p. 51)
  4. What effect did the arrival of European settlers have on the health of Native Americans? (p. 49)

As this article is quite long I have included the page numbers where you may find the answers to the questions.

Coincidentally – At Present  Native Americans are being very badly affected by Covid 19 and they have  appealed for funds. The fund raisers were surprised to find that they were receiving donations from Ireland and were wondering why this should be. They found that the reason was that the Choctaw had sent money to Ireland in 1847 to support victims of the Great Irish Famine. The writer Marie Louise Fitzpatrick wrote a beautifully illustrated book about this called ‘The Long March’ – see picture of book cover below.

Coordinates

Our topic for this week is Coordinates. We have done a little on Coordinates as they sometimes appear in our Mental Maths

We use Coordinates to show the position of a point on a grid. We also use them as a location guide on Maps. Today we are learning about grids that have 4 Quadrants – this meas that the x and y axis have postive /plus and negative/minus numbers Take a look at the attached image which will help to explain  –   Please read  Coordinates 2

Try  these  which gives you some practise on plotting points on a grid with 4 quadrants

Plotting Points 3 FridayClick to open

This worksheet contains 4 Questions with parts A- F in each. You may copy the grids in to your Maths copies and then plot the points with the coordinates given. Remember to begin with the x axis (the horizontal line) and then go to the y axis (vertical line). The coordinates are separated by a comma – for example (4,3)

Science

Topic  – Plants

Last day of our topic Plants. Today we read about Plants and Humans – we read about how humans use plants and also how scientists and farmers breed plants to improve crops. Our final page introduces the topic of Genetic Modification of Plants – how scientists can modify the genes of certain crops to make plants grow a certain way. This process causes controversy as some people think that it is dangerous to modify and control plants in this way, biodiversity is affected, there is a possibility of cross contamination with other plants and if this happens we are not sure of the outcome. On the other hand we may be able to produce more food to feed more people all over the world -read the attached and maybe chat with your parents to see what they think.

Good Morning Everyone,

I’m sure that you all know by now that our school will not be re-opening until September. I really hoped that we would be back before the end of the year but as you know our Government believe that it is too risky at this point during this Covid pandemic. I was really sad to hear this and I ‘m sure that you were too. It’s important to remember the reason why this is happening; we are trying to keep everyone safe from  Covid 19. We have all been doing our best with hand washing and social distancing and we just have to keep it up for a little bit longer.

Please don’t loose heart and give up on your schoolwork, this way of working is not nearly the same as all of us learning together in the classroom and as part of the whole school, but it’s the best we have for now.   The last term for 6th Class is an important one, we had plans for activities and outings that have to be put on hold. Do try to stay in touch with us via the school website, classdojo and email. Mr Moran may be organising a Zoom meeting for our class soon and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible when that happens. I encourage you and your families to keep trying your best to do as much of the school work as you can. I really appreciate your efforts as I know that it’s not always easy.

The good news is that we have a short week this week… so on we go!

Activity E – Grammar – Siobhán crept along the hedge until she caught sight of the leprechaun.  He was in his blue coat and cocked hat with a red feather, an apron over his knees and he was hammering away at a little silver dance shoe. Beside him was a little pot of drink. She came up behind him and seized the back of his coat with the command, “Where is your treasure?”  “You’re hurting me, ” said the leprechaun as he tried to wriggle out but, of course Siobhán had a tight hold of him. She had no intention of letting go until he told her where the gold was hidden.

Poetry

The Mother by P. Pearse

Today I have attached a poem written by one of the 1916 leaders. It was written by Pádraig Pearse and is called The Mother. As we know from our studies Pádraig Pearse was one of the 7 signatories of The Proclamation and he was executed. His brother  Willie also took part in the 1916 Rising and although he was not one of the leaders he too, was executed.

The Poem: Like all poems it is much better when you read it aloud. Can you do that? I would love you to spend some time thinking about the poem and read it a second time, slowly.

Imagine that you are Pádraig and Willie’s mother – How would you feel?

Do you think that the poem addresses these feelings?

Do you think that Pádraig’s poem reflects a mother’s true feelings on the death of her two sons?

Today is the last day on  wild flowers too , now I could keep going forever – but I won’t!! Seriously though it’s been a great year for wildflowers as the weather in March and April was so good. Today’s wild flowers are favourites of mine too.  If any of you live within 2 km of Kelly’s Wood, The Ponds or Lacken Wood you may spot some of the flowers you have researched. See if you can identify today’s wild flowers.  Click to open  Irish Wild Flowers 4

I would like you to do some research on these flowers. Look at them carefully, the flowers and the leaves, go to the website irishflowers.ie and see if you can identify these flowers. On this website you will see a number of different tabs at the top of the page, click on the tab ‘Flowering now’ and select ‘April and/or May’ or the ‘Colour’ tab to see if you can find out the name of these flowers. I’ll give you the names tomorrow to check if you picked the correct one.

Over the next few days I would like you to research and compile a short Fact File on each of the 7 men (the people who signed it were all men). Some of you may have bought Scrap Books and if you did please do your project in your scrap book. If not please use a blank page for each of the 7 and keep. I will display them when we return to school. Check that your work is nicely presented and that all spellings and punctuation are correct to the best of your ability. I hope to received some pictures of your project work on or before Friday. – Good Luck!

There are other options here too, a lovely one with paint . I’ll leave it to you and they have some prizes too!! Get your pictures in before next Friday.

Today is also Irish National Poetry Day , as you know I really like poetry, it can help to express our feelings and to see how other people express theirs. You may have learned the poem Homework! Oh Homework! by J. Prelutsky when you were younger. I’ve changed the words a little for you today to express my feelings about Covid 19…..

Covid! Oh Covid!

Covid! Oh Covid!

I hate you! You stink!

I wish I could wash you away in the sink,

If only a bomb would explode you to bits,

Covid! Oh Covid! , you’re giving me fits!

I’d rather take baths with a man-eating shark,

Or wrestle a lion alone in the dark,

Eat spinach and liver, eat ten porcupines,

Than tackle the illness this virus assigns,

Covid! Oh Covid!

You’re last on my list,

I simply can’t see why you even exist.

If you just disappeared, it would tickle me pink,

Covid! Oh Covid!

I hate you! You Stink!

The End

We’ll take a look at another (more serious) poem tomorrow.

Equations

Our topic for this week is Equations. We have done a little on equations as they sometimes appear in our Mental Maths.

We are practising finding the value of Variables again today.

When a symbol or a letter is used in place of an unknown amount, it is called a variable.

Example x + 20 = 100.  We are trying to find the value of  x – x is the unknown number or variable.   So.. x = 20 = 100,   x = 100 -20, Therefore x = 80.

Example: 5p = 15 . We are trying to find the value of p – p is the unknown number or variable.

So… 5p = 15, 1 p (or p) = 15 divided by 5, Therefore p= 3  ( 5p means 5 times p)

Try the examples on the page attached.  Click to open  Maths Equations 2

Most of you will be able to figure out the value of the variable by looking at the sum but writing it out may help.

If we all try our best then maybe our Government will be able to lift some of the restrictions. The most important thing to remember is that by following the guidelines as best we can, we are helping to keep others and ourselves safe.

Equations

Our topic for this week is Equations. We have done a little on equations as they sometimes appear in our Mental Maths.

Today we are looking at Variables.

When a symbol or a letter is used in place of an unknown amount, it is called a variable.

Example x + 20 = 100.  We are trying to find the value of  x – x is the unknown number or variable.   So.. x = 20 = 100,   x = 100 -20, Therefore x = 80.

Example: 5p = 15 . We are trying to find the value of p – p is the unknown number or variable.

So… 5p = 15, 1 p (or p) = 15 divided by 5, Therefore p= 3  ( 5p means 5 times p)

Try the examples on the page attached.  Click to open  Equations 1

Most of you will be able to figure out the value of the variable by looking at the sum but writing it out may help.

History

Topic:  The 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland

Easter 1916 is a very significant time in Irish history.

Last week we read about how Pádraig Pearse read out The Proclamation on the steps of the GPO. What was The Proclamation?   Today I have attached a copy of The Proclamation for you to read and to answer some questions on. Remember this document was written over a hundred years ago and so the language may seem a little difficult but try your best.

The 1916 Proclamation expressed the hopes and plans of the rebels for a new Ireland. It’s primary purpose was to declare an independent Irish Republic to the British and the rest of the word. They wanted a country that would look after all of it’s citizens – can you find any phrases that illustrate this ?

Happy, Happy Friday!!!

We’ve done a lot of work this week – just one more day to go so do keep trying your best. Although we are all happy that it’s Friday, it’s also a little sad. If this outbreak of Covid 19 had not happened most of us would be looking forward to our Confirmation Day tomorrow, it’s sad that it couldn’t take place and that, like many other things it had to be cancelled. However if we all manage to stay safe and well then it will be worth it and  the Confirmation will be arranged for another date. Hopefully the weather will be nice for the weekend and we can all enjoy the sunshine.

Length

Our topic for this week is Length. Length is a type of measurement, it tells us how long or wide something is. We use the metric system – Millimetre, Centimetre, Metre, Kilometre.                Remember:                                                                                                                                                        10mm = 1cm                                                                                                                                                       100cm = 1 m                                                                                                                                                   1ooom = 1km

Today we will complete our topic Length.

Firstly, a little revision on Perimeter which we covered with area. Can you remember what this means? Perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape or space. Please take a look at the attached and complete the table.Length 6 part 1

Secondly, we need to think about Scale. Scale is used in real life all the time, for example, in maps to represent countries and on house plans to represent the rooms in the house. If we were to draw n accurate picture of your bedroom we would need a very large piece of paper!! or we could find a way to make a smaller drawing using scale. We might use a scale of 1m :1cm – If your bedroom was 3 metres long we would represent this by drawing a 3cm line in our copy.

Try the 2 activities in Planet Maths page 86. Complete B Q 1-5 on the scale drawing of a kitchen and Q1-3 on the model railway. On the model railway the scale is 1:20cm which means that if something on the page measures 1cm it willbe 20cm in real life. If we measure 3cm on the page then it will be 3 x 20cm =60cm .  Just try your best and do what you can.

Happy Friday and Happy Holidays!

Thank you to all who found their inner Smurf and wore something  blue for World Autism Day – ‘little surprise’ for those who sent in photos.

There was a great response to Flags for Frontline to show support for all the workers providing services we all need in shops, farms, hospitals, at the doctor’s, drivers etc. I’m sure that it makes them feel better to know that they are appreciated.

Easter Holidays are finally here!!!! No more posts with school work from Mrs B.! What will you do???

I wish you and all your families a safe, healthy and Happy Easter. Thank you for all your hard work and support, I’m sure that you found it hard to adjust, as did I, but you stuck with it and in many cases did some extra work which is fantastic.

Easter is a very important season for the Catholic Church and for other Christian Churches too.

Easter is seen as a time of rebirth and hope as Jesus  is raised from the dead. We see it in nature and in ourselves as we try to be the best person we can be. Celebrate Easter Week by carrying out a random act of kindness for someone in your family.

Activity

Instead of Art today I am posting some Easter Recipes for Easter Biscuits and Easter Brownies so some time over the holidays maybe you could make a treat for your family – remember to tidy up afterwards. For the Easter Bunnies you could use small sweets instead of icing if you like. Mmmmmm. Biscuit RecipeEaster Brownies

Happy Easter to all.

Happy April Fools Day ! Lá na nAmadán shona daoibh! Try not to drive your parents crazy and remember it only lasts up to 12:00 noon.

In Question 1 you are given the average and you are asked to find the total so what do you do?Think about how you found the average – you divided . Now you have the total so you do the opposite you multiply. Example for Q1 a) you multiply 6 by 4 so the answer is 24.                                           In Question 2. We have to find the total and then we must complete another step to find the missing number. What will we do ? Example 2 a) The average of 5 numbers is 9 so that means the total of the numbers is 5X9 =45. Next we have to find the missing number so we add the numbers we have which comes to 40 and take the answer away from 45 to find the missing number 45-40=5                  Question 3. This question is a little more difficult – First we find the the total of the numbers for 4 cars by multiplying. Next we add the numbers on the cars that we have and take our answer away from the total of the numbers for four cars to find our missing number.

Can you try Questions 1, 2, and 3 today please?                                                                                 Complete as many questions as you can – just try your best. I hope your brain is not fried!!!!

WW2  Overview Clarendon Learning – This one is a little American orientated but it gives a good overiew.

Map of WW2 showing countries involved and how it spread. Contains a little more detail than we need at this point but for those who like Maps it show just how many countries were involved and illustrates how it truly was a World War.

We will do a little more reading on it during the week.

Hope all goes well with today’s work. Let me know if you have any problems via email: abrazil@bunscoilris.ie  or via the classdojo.                                                                                                           Just give everything your best effort and take care.                                                                                          Mrs Brazil

Happy Friday!!                                                                                                                                                      I hope that you are all getting used to this new way of working – all of the teachers have to get used to it too and I’m confident that we will all get better at it as time goes on. I have to say I miss my technical assistants!                                                                                                                                       If possible, over the weekend, can you ask your parents to buy a scrap book for project work? It would be great if you could get one for project work while we are out of school. I think that The Treasury may be closed but Kavanaghs or some of the Grocery Shops may have them  – do what you can. If you have blank paper and a folder of any kind that would suit also.

My email address is abrazil@bunscoilris.ie if you would like to contact me via email and i will do my best to answer any questions and to help in any way I can.

Religion

Confirmation Book  – Page Headed ‘My Favourite Bible Story’   – www.dltk-bible.com     might be of help with this. If you have a favourite bible story – any of the parables, the birth of Jesus, remember Zacchaeus ??   Include image relating to the bible story of your choice in the picture frame on the page and of course colour in.  Remember to keep your writing as neat as possible, with correct spellings, capital letters and punctuation.

Art

As it is Mother’s Day on Sunday – I’m sure that all the Mothers would love an original designed by you card!!!   Remember to include a nice poem – it can be Acrostic. Best of luck.

On the school website Ms Griffin has posted information about an Art activity / challenge for the whole school which I hope you will participate in. Many artists have used natural materials to create art. Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who uses natural materials such as leaves and stones to create artworks. Why not Google him if you are looking for inspiration. I look forward to seeing your creations! Take a picture or keep your work until we return and a great Art Exhibition will be something to look forward to. Create as many works as you like.

As the evenings are getting brighter maybe you can get out for a walk – remember social distancing and stay healthy

Have a lovely weekend and check in with me again on Monday!

Thanks for all your hard work.                                                                                                                      Mrs Brazil
