Mrs Lennon’s Class work for Weeks beginning 20th and 27th April

2 week Plan

Work for Week beginning 20th April AND week beginning 27th April

Dear parents and students

I have created a list of work across all subject areas for the next 2 weeks.

I am aware that working form home is going to be difficult and understand that we can only do our best. I ask children to attempt core subjects, English, Irish and Maths first.

If children are finding it too difficult or if there is too much (or too little), please let me know. Like for everyone, this is all new to me too, so I can take all feedback on board and adapt if necessary going forward. My email is

I hope everyone is staying safe and well and I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Take care,Mrs Lennon

I have attached an Explanation Text Checklist to help you.

Mental Maths each day as normal

Tables Champion each day as normal

Below is a list work for each day. Some children will find it easier than others. I suggest children spend no more than 30mins each day at maths completing what they can in this time.

The ANSWERS can be found on Folensonline (The same website for Abair Liom) so children can correct their own work at the end of each activity or can ensure they are on the right track.
