Mr. O’Brien 6th Class: 15th June – 19th June

Hello 6th Class,

I hope you’re all keeping well and enjoyed your weekend. We’re nearly there now, just two weeks to go! This week’s activities are again slightly different to the last few weeks. There is English on Monday & Wednesday and Maths on Tuesday & Thursday. In addition I’ve included a few fun Wellness activities that you can try. You do not have to do all of them but there might be something there that you would enjoy doing. I’d love to see some of the work you produce for these activities as I really enjoy seeing how you’re getting on. Try your best with your activities, stay safe and have fun.

Your Wellness Activities are included on this word document:   Wellness Activities
Try 1 or 2 every day.

Mr O’Brien 6th Class: Monday 8th June – Friday 12th June

Hi again 6th Class,

I hope you all had a good weekend!

Just like last week there is only work for both English and Maths to complete this week. Try to continue your own personal daily reading for 20 minutes on top of this work as well. Here is an example of a timetable that might help you out this week to stay on top of your time:

Time Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
9.30 – 10.00 English Maths English English Maths
10.00-10.30 Maths English Maths Maths English

 

You might prefer to do your Maths or English first everyday, that is entirely up to you. Try and spend no more than 30 minutes on both subjects (although work hard for those 30mins😊).

Remember you do not have to complete all the work, just try your best with what you can do. If you get stuck on something, don’t worry about it and move on to the next piece.

Once again if there is anything that I can do to help you please let me know. My email is: stjosephssixthclass20@gmail.com
