Homework 11th - 14th March

Hi all,

Firstly I want to say well done to all the children for the work that went into the China projects. They are all brilliant!

Homework will be slightly different this week because it is Seachtain na Gaeilge! 

The children will not have their Master your Maths to complete this week. 

Instead I am asking that the children learn the clapping rhythm for Amhrán na gCupán (The Cup Song). We will be taking part in "The Gael-Factor" next week so we will need to know the song really well to be in with a chance of winning!! We will be learning the lyrics in class. 

Here is a link to the clapping rhythm they should learn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5zuY4Nprk0
