Thursday 14th May

Hello everyone,

A reminder that we have our zoom meeting today at 11am. The info is on our class story on dojo. If you could have two things to show us [one not to do with school and one piece of work] that would be great. If not, no hassle. Also, don’t forget about Urban rascals and school hub on RTE.

 

English:

1] Do two comprehensions on your ‘Read Theory’ account

2] Next 4 spellings

3] RZ p114 E- Insert a suitable verb. Remember a verb is an action [doing] word. e.g jump.

Maths:

1] Mathletics: (i) I have assigned a problem to you all. See how you get on.

(ii) Go to courses and place value [same as yesterday]. Today try ‘nearest 10’ and ‘nearest 100’

2] Tenths worksheet [attached below]

Wednesday 13th May

Good morning,

I hope you all managed to log on to Mathletics and were able to access the work I set. Please let me know if you experienced problems with this. As I said yesterday we will have our next zoom on Thursday at 11am. I have posted the link for this on class dojo.

English:

1] Do two comprehensions on your ‘Read Theory’ account

2] Next 4 spellings

3] RZ F p114-Describing the Princess’ character. Lots of detail and examples please! Would love to see what you come up with.

Maths:

1] 10 minutes of hit the button concentrating on x9 tables

2] On your Mathletics account go to course and place value like yesterday. Today have a go at the comparing numbers to 100, which is bigger and which is smaller activities.

3] Ordering decimals worksheet Page 1 [attached below]. If you were able to do yesterdays work, this should be no problem to you. What’s important to remember: The units and ten are completely different [Units are whole numbers and tenths are .1 or 1/10 of a whole number]. For example 5.0 just means 5. This is much bigger than 0.5 which means 5/10. So to figure out which number is bigger you need to look at UNITS FIRST.

Tuesday 12th May

Hello all,

We are going to do a zoom call again this week. It will be on Thursday at 11am. I will post the link on dojo closer to the time. It would be great if you had one or two things to show your classmates and I.. First of all you might show us something you are playing with/doing over the last while. It could be a toy, a game or anything important to you at the moment.. Even a pet maybe!! [You don’t have to have anything to show us, this is just how we will start off our chat]

It would also be nice to see a piece of school work you have got done over the last while. It could be your mini project on an Arctic/Antarctic animal, or some info on Spain, Tom Crean, the Incas, a piece of Artwork, a short story, etc.. Again, no pressure to have this, it’s just an idea.

Finally, I hope everyone is now set up on Mathletics. Please let me know if you’re not. We will get going with it slowly from today onwards. I am still trying to figure out the website myself! For today:

English:

1] Next 4 spellings [on class dojo]

2] RZ read 110-112. Answer A p113.

3] I am sorry to be giving a new website but this one is fantastic for reading comprehension! If you could sign up to read theory.org your child will be able to complete progressive reading comprehensions at their own ability level. Just complete the assessment today if you can. https://readtheory.org/

Maths:

1] Mathletics; i] I’ve sent a decimals problem to everyone in my class. See if you can figure it out.

ii] Go to courses and then to place value. Attempt the place value 1 and 2 activities.

2] Play this demicals game on Sheppard software. http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/mathgames/decimals/DecimalModels10.htm

Good morning,

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. This week we will be starting with a new website for Maths called ‘Mathletics’. I have set up our class on the website and will be sending a username and password to you all via dojo. Hopefully you can all get logged on. For today:

2] 10 minutes of hit the button concentrating on x9 this week. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

3]This week we are going to move on to revising Decimals. Do you remember that a decimal is the same as a fraction but just written another way?! E.g 1/10=0.1 [Zero full units and one tenth of a unit]. So if 0.1 means 1/10, what is 1.0? That’s right it’s just 1 or One unit!

Maths: 

1] Have a game of hit the button, today concentrating on your x8 tables! https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

2] Today we return to our Fractions and will focus on finding full amounts when given a fraction. E.g If 1/2 the marbles in a bag is 3, what is the full amount of marbles? Well we know that 2 halves make a whole.. So if we add the two halves together we have the answer. 3 is 1/2 so the other half must also be 3. Answer: 3+3=6. 

We do the same thing when we are given 1/4 and asked to find the whole amount. The only difference is we add four times [or x4]. e.g 3+3+3+3=12/

I would like you to try Planet Maths p106 B and C and p107 A.

Today is the last day before your Easter break. Well done on your work for the last few weeks. I will not be posting work over Easter but RTE school hub will continue as will Urban rascals. If anyone does want to continue doing some work they can follow the schools twitter page for ideas or scroll back through the work I have posted on this website as I’m sure there are parts you have not been able to complete. Otherwise, have a great Easter break and stay safe and well!

Best wishes,

PE Exercises:

For any day the weather isn’t good here’s some exercises you could try. Otherwise, get plenty of fresh air and activity over Easter!

  1. Mountain Climbers

Get into a push-up position and then alternate bringing your knee to your elbow. You can do same side connections or crisscross. The idea is to move fast and work up a sweat!

  1. Bear Crawls
    Palms and feet flat on the floor, arch your back so that you look like a big bear. Race across the room. 
  2. Star Jumps

Stand tall and then explosively jump into the air, expanding your legs and your arms so that you look like a large “X” in the air. 

  1. Push Ups

Straightforward and to the point.  Drop to the knee if you find this challenging!

  1. Sit Ups

Another classic. Feel free to tuck your toes under the sofa or coffee table if you need a bit of support.  

  1. Burpees

Who is up for the challenge? Start with a jump up, then drop to a plank, add a push-up, and then jump back up. It should be one fluid motion and try to not pause between repetitions. Make it a bit easier by opting out of the push up if you need to.

 

  1. Squats

To do this one, stand with your feet shoulder’s width apart, and do deep knee bends. Make sure keep your knees behind your toes and your arms out straight.

  1. Leg Raises

Lay on your side or on your back and then lift your legs without bending at the knee. Try to hold at the top. This works your lower abdominals, but be careful to not let your lower back arch.

  1. Lunges

Step forward and bend your front knee to a 90-degree angle. The goal is to have your back knee touch the ground without letting your front knee extend past your toes. 

  1. Planks

Elbows on the floor and balanced on your tiptoes. 30 seconds is considered the gold standard. 

  1. Butterfly Kicks

Lay flat on your back, and extend your legs straight out. Imagine a swimmer, and begin to flutter kick your legs without bending at the knee. Start with your feet high off of the floor, as the move gets more difficult the closer the action is to the floor.

You might find some suitable outdoor games here also-https://www.wired.com/2009/08/simpleoutdoorplay/
