Greetings from Mochuda!

Homeschooling is fun (and challenging at times!!) . We are keeping connected through email and Google Classroom ๐Ÿ™‚

Routine is the key for happy children ๐Ÿ™‚

Suggested Timetable

1. Exercise: Before any home learning gets done, it’s a good idea to get
in some exercise.

There are plenty of options for this depending on family circumstances:

– Walk the dog for 30 minutes

(if you donโ€™t have a dog, just walk without one!)

– Do one of our HIITs or choose from the hundreds on YouTube

– Every morning at 9am, Joe Wicks, the Body Coach is doing a live workout for kids on his YouTube Channel

2. Core Subjects: Literacy/Numeracy/Gaeilge
NOTE: This session should take no more than 15 minutes per year of the child’s age,(i.e. 5 year olds no more than 75 minutes)

3. Break Time: It’s important to take a break. Make sure to have a snack and to try and get outside for some fresh air.

4. School On TV: Every day at 11am, RTE2 are showing School on TV.

5. Project Work (1 per week)

6. Lunch Time: It’s important to eat lunch.
Children should try and get outside if they can too.

7. Free Time: School work should be completed by now. Children, of course,
can continue with projects or have some downtime or there are a million
other suggestions out there – LEGO challenges, various competitions,
art projects, going around, decent podcasts, TV programmes and so on.

Liosmรณr Mochuda National School is a mixed two-teacher school in Lismore, Co. Waterford under the Patronage of the Church of Ireland. It is nestled at the top of North Mall between the historic St. Carthages Cathedral and the Deanery.
