Hi girls, we hope you had loads of fun on your virtual school tours last week. We would love for you send us in some photos for our school website. If you have any, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload them to SeeSaw!
This week we will working through SeeSaw. It would be great if you could record yourself reading our poem below and uploading it, or if you have pictures of your Science Experiment or of the worksheet on sinking and floating, it would be great to see them. You will need to download the app on a mobile device and your parents will receive a text to help join SeeSaw experience.
We miss you all,
Mr. McCrudden & Ms. Duffy.
The Sound Collector
A stranger called this morning
Dressed all in black and grey
Put every sound into a bag
And carried them away
The whistling of the kettle
The turning of the lock
The purring of the kitten
The ticking of the clock
The popping of the toaster
The crunching of the flakes
When you spread the marmalade
The scraping noise it makes
The hissing of the frying pan
The ticking of the grill
The bubbling of the bathtub
As it starts to fill
The drumming of the raindrops
On the windowpane
When you do the washing-up
The gurgle of the drain
The crying of the baby
The squeaking of the chair
The swishing of the curtain
The creaking of the stair
A stranger called this morning
He didn’t leave his name
Left us only silence
Life will never be the same

For your activity this week I’d like you to write 3-5 sentences about either Áras an Uachtaráin or San Diego Zoo. Pick your favourite tour and write some travel tips! Draw a picture of your favourite tour.
