3rd Class Homework: Miss Mangan 30th March – 3rd April

Dear Parent/s,

 I hope that you all had a good week and that you managed with the homework. I do want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your continued support and patience through this very difficult time and know that I hugely appreciate it. As I mentioned last week, try to complete each day as best you can and if the work given is proving stressful in any way, please take a break from it. If you have any questions or encounter any difficulties with the work, please don’t hesitate to email me at yvonnemangan10@gmail.com. I will be in contact with you again over the coming week.

By Josie Whitehead                             

Sweet daffodils in yellow gowns

Look out across our busy town,                                       

And beds of pansies – purple, white –

Display a bold but joyful sight.

White cherry-blossom ladened trees

Throw out their blooms upon the breeze

Which settle on the dampened grass

To watch the shoppers as they pass.

The church clock strikes from high above.

And two lovers walk and talk of love –

Hearts entwined with love sublime

And all because it’s Easter-time.

Ní maith liom an bhásiteach (I don’t like the rain)

Ag spraoi is ag cleachtadh ( Playing and practicing)

Ní maith liom an bháisteach ( I don’t like the rain)

Is fearr liom an ghrian ( I prefer the sun)

Lá amuigh sa pháirc ( Out in the park)

Ag bailiú nóinín (Collecting daisies)

Extra activities:

Gratitude Journal: Daily activity – Write three things that you are grateful for today.

Your family will need all your help and support during this time so maybe you could offer to help without being asked (help to prepare dinner/tidy up the dishes) or even be a good listener for someone in your family.

Daily Challenges (P. E.) –

  1. Go for a run with someone in your family. Discuss how you’re feeling afterwards.
  2. Keep a balloon in the air as long as you can. How long were you able to keep it up for?
  3. It is healthy to give your body some rest. Go to bed 1 hour earlier than normal tonight.
  4. Go show a parent 1 skill, game or exercise that you’ve learned in PE class this year. Go practice it with that person.
  5. Create a game with a brother/sister or a parent. What are the rules of this game? What is the name of the game?


At this important time in our own history, I thought it would be important to learn about The President of Ireland and his role and responsibilities. The link to the powerpoint and the worksheet is below (If you can’t print out the worksheet, you can use the heading and write it in your copy)

Stay Safe program:


Lesson 2: Feeling safe/unsafe:

Discuss with your child times when they feel safe and unsafe and ask him to give you examples from the lessons.

Talk to your child about the rules he should follow if lost or if a stranger calls to the door or on the phone.

Encourage your child to tell an adult about any situation in which he feels unsafe, upset, confused or worried.

Easter Activites:

Here are a list of websites and activities that you can do during the week or over the Easter holidays if you prefer. Remember these are extra activities; please don’t be under any pressure to complete them.




On Pinterest, look up the following fun Easter activities:

Easter Scavenger Hunt

Lego Easter Eggs Building Challenge

Salt Dough Easter Eggs

11 Fascinating egg Science Experiments for kids

Please make sure to look after yourself and your family and while schoolwork is important, be sure you make time for the fun things too. Stay safe and tell the boys that I miss them terribly.  Have a great Easter and enjoy eating all the delicious Easter eggs. I think we all deserve them at this stage.
