Week 29


Chaos at Chrysanthemum Show

There was chaos at St. Christopher’s School on Saturday, due to a mistake in the school office.


Early in the morning chrysanthemum growers put up tables in the hall in order to display their flowers.  The judge was due to arrive at eleven o’clock to select the best blooms and award prizes.


However, at a quarter to eleven the school orchestra and choir arrived for a practice.  Instruments, music stands and chairs were placed between the tables of chrysanthemums.  Neither the school music master, nor the show organizer, could work out another scheme.  It was chaotic.


As the flower judge arrived, the orchestra struck up its first chord.

Homework is a very important part of a child's education and provides pupils with a good opportunity to revise content learned in school.


By sixth class, it is expected that children take responsibility for their own homework and strive to independently complete each task to their best of their abilities. At times, pupils may need to ask for help or support, but most work should be completed by themselves.


Homework should be part of the child's weekly routine. It is advised that homework should start at the same time each day, preferably as soon as they arrive home or soon-after. Leaving homework till late can prove difficult as they lose focus and concentration. Homework should also be completed in a quiet area in the house, so as to avoid disturbances. 


At sixth class level, homework should take around 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.


Please ensure that the homework diary is signed each night and that the child records how long they spent doing their homework.


Ní cheart go mbeadh an obair deacair ar an bpáiste nó ar an dtuismitheoir. If a pupil is experiencing trouble with the homework, please let me know.



Pas Obair Bhaile


As a reward, pupils may be given a homework pass. Pupils may use the pass whenever they wish.


Please note that the Pas Obair Bhaile only includes a night off written homework.


Pupils must revise Spellings and Litriú every night!





Please be aware that there will be a weekly test on Fridays. Tests will include the following material...

  • Dictation
  • Irish Spellings (Litriú)
  • Maths
  • English
  • Gaeilge

Tests enable teachers to assess pupils' learning and draw attention to areas which need revision.


Tests will be short and include topics covered that week in class.


Please sign their test copies each week.
