A leathan briathra takes the ending óidh (mé,tú,sé,sí, sibh, said) and óimid (sinn)

A caol briathra takes the ending eoidh (mé,tú,sé,sí, sibh, said)and  eoimid (sinn)

  • Briathra Work.
    1. Last week, we started revising work we were doing in class, shortly before the schools closed; learning about Aimsir Fháistineach (Future Tense Verbs)

 

  1. Today, we are continuing to focus on Aimsir Fháistineach Briathra Aon Siolla (1 syllable verbs in the future tense)

Please open the attached link to refresh your memory about the rules.

Aimir Fháistineach Rules One Syllable

You must decide if the Briathra(Verb) is leathan (a,o,u) or caol (i,e) to decide which ending it takes.

-A leathan briathra takes the ending faidh (mé,tú,sé,sí, sibh, said)  and faimid   (sinn)

-A caol briathra takes the ending fidh (mé,tú,sé,sí, sibh, said)and  fimid (sinn)

 

  1. Please write out the three briathra into your copies from the attached sheet above and try to translate into English. (Remember I will, you will, he will….they will)

E.G.         Page one         Cuirfidh mé       =       I will put

Page two        Glanfaidh mé    =    I will clean

Page three     Féachfaidh mé   =  I will look

 

Maths:

  • Mental Maths on Class Dojo.
  • I would like you to go onto ‘Hit the Button’ today and spend 15 minutes practising your Multiplication Tables, focusing on 8 and 9 times tables. Try to beat your score each time. Some of you used to achieve fantastic scores in class!

Good morning 5th class. Another week completed and another month. I know as we move into May you will all continue to put in the same effort that you have been putting in, since we started our online learning back in March.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Chat to you next week.

 

English:

  • Please get an older sibling or whoever’s looking after you to give you your spelling test. Let me know how you got on, on Class Dojo.
  • Please fill in the 12 sentences on your spelling sheet, choosing the appropriate word from your spelling list for each sentence.
  • Free Writing: Please open the attached link, scroll down and write a story based on picture number 6(Rain scene). t-s-3564-picture-and-prompts-writing-template_ver_1Remember everything we have learned about story writing:

e.g. no boring/criminal words, think of the list of interesting/exciting words we compiled together in class. One example of a boring/criminal word: ‘said’ = More interesting/exciting words that can replace ‘said’ =  answered, replied, muttered, whispered, exclaimed, cried, shouted etc. I’m sure you can think of many more boring/criminal words!

Speech/Quotation marks if your characters are talking, correct use of capital letters and proof reading your writing! Does it make sense?You are all capable of creating some wonderfully imaginative and descriptive stories. This will become a weekly task, so please only do picture 3 this week.

 

Maths:

  • Today we are looking at Word Problems. We know every word problem is a short story that needs to be changed back into a Maths Sum using one or more of the four operations (addition/subtraction/multiplication/division)

Please open the attached Word Problem activity.T-N-807-Maths-Problem-Cards- There are 20 Problems, attempt as many as you can and/or all 20. Answers on the last page for you to self correct.

 

Gaeilge:

  • We are all watching extra TV at the moment.

Is maith liom Netflix.

Remember: An maith leat? Is maith liom/Ní maith liom

 

SESE:

  • As you all know we are living through a period in History that will always be remembered in years to come. Children in the future will learn about this. Therefore, I think it would be a fantastic idea and a wonderful keepsake for you to look back on in years to come, if you had your own Covid-19 Time Capsule.

Please open the attached link,My-Covid-19-Time-Capsule-Booklet    We will be working on this weekly so you may wish to download and print it. If not, you can complete each activity in your copy, each week.

Maths 

  • I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Number Sentence task. We are going to continue with this topic today.

Yesterday’s answers:

 

Let’s do a few more examples today:

Remember in class, we learned about fractions, decimals and percentages.

Fractions                 Decimals                Percentages

½                               0.5                           50%

1/3                            0.33                        33.3%

¼                               0.25                        25%

1/5                            0.2                          20%

1/6                            0.166                     16.6%

1/8                            0.125                     12.5%

1/10                          0.1                          10%

 

  • Today we are looking at a mixture of Number Sentences including whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percentages. We must use the correct Mathematical sign   <, = or > to make the Number Sentence true.

 

Examples:

  1. 11 + 12 + 3 ___     56

26            ____    56     (We know 26 is less than < 56 so we use the < sign to make our Number Sentence true)

26            <          56

 

  1. 56 – 23  _____   44

33          <       44    (We have used the < sign to make this Number Sentence true)

 

  1. 0.1 of 40 ___    10

(We know we must change decimals and percentages into fractions to work out a sum like this.     0.1 is 1/10  as a fraction. So we now can divide by the denominator (number on the bottom) and multiply by the numerator (number on top)

1/10 of 40     ___   10   (40 divided by 10 = 4.      4 x1= 4)

4                   ___   10

4                   <         10

 

  1. 75% of 16 _____    9

(We know we must change decimals and percentages into fractions to work out a sum like this.     75% is ¾  as a fraction. So we now can divide by the denominator (number on the bottom) and multiply by the numerator (number on top)

¾ of 16   ___    9   (16 divided by 4= 4.          4 x3=12)

12            ___    9

12           >         9

 

  • Today I would like you to open your Planet Maths book on page 157 and complete Box D Questions 1 (a, b, c) – 4 (a, b, c ) Look back at the examples we did above to help you.

SESE:

Easter Rising 1916 is our topic this week. This was a key event in Irish history, which took place between Monday 24 April and Sunday 29 April, 1916. It was a rebellion against British rule in Ireland and was defeated after a swift British military response. As a military campaign the Rising was ultimately a failure but it had an important legacy in that the British response to the event turned the majority of the Irish public towards the concept of a fully independent Irish Republic.

  •         Please read through both of the attached power-points and record 5 facts you have learned about the Easter Rising from each power-point.

  • Group 1 +2 Spelling List 26 for this week. We are revising ‘ious’ words. As usual on a Monday, Group 1 Revise first 3 Spellings. Group 2 Revise first 5 spellings.

Use your dictionaries to look up the meanings of today’s spellings, write the definition into your copies. Then put each of your spellings today into a sentence, to show your understanding of each word. If you don’t have your dictionaries, use this link belowhttps://kids.wordsmyth.net/we/

  • SNIP Literacy Spellings: (Pupils already using this in class only)Open the attached link and focus on Session 1 and the activities to help you learn your spellings.literacy_programme_part_2

Maths

  • We have a very good knowledge of our multiplication and division tables, so today we are looking at Number Sentences and using our knowledge to determine if they are true or false.

 

Lets look at a few together first:

 

  1. 8 x 4 = 61. This number sentence is false as we know 8 x 4 = 32.

 

  1. 89 = 21 + 56. When we add 21 + 56 in my rough work (R.W.) section of my copy it gives me 77 so we know this number sentence is false.

 

  1. 110 < 5 x 12. We know this sign < is less than, so we need to figure out what 5 x 12 is , 60. Now our sum reads as 110< 60 which we know is false.

 

  1. 3 + 7 x 6 = 40 + 5

(Remember the rule we learned in class for a sum with more than one operation : MY DEAR AUNT SALLY (Multiply/Divide before Adding/Subtracting) So that reminds me that I need to rewrite my sum as:

3 + (7 x 6) = 40 + 5

3 + (42)     = 40 +5

45            = 45      So we know this number sentence is true.

 

  • Today I would like you to open your Planet Maths book on page 157 and complete Box C Questions 1 (a, b, c) – 5 (a, b, c ) Look back at the examples we did above to help you.

  • Briathra Work.
    1. At this stage we know our Aimsir Chaite Briathra Aon Siolla agus Dhá Shiolla well (1 syllable and 2 syllable verbs in the Past Tense)
    2. Before we finished up in school, we had begun learning about Aimsir Fháistineach (Future Tense Verbs)

Today, we are focusing on Aimsir Fháistineach Briathra Aon Siolla (1 syllable verbs in the future tense)

Please open your Bun go Barr books on pg 38 to refresh your memory.

Like the Aimsir Chaite you must decide if the Briathra(Verb) is leathan (a,o,u) or caol (i,e) to decide which ending it takes.

A leathan briathra takes the ending faidh (mé,tú,sé,sí, sibh, said) and faimid (sinn)

A caol briathra takes the ending fidh (mé,tú,sé,sí, sibh, said)and  fimid (sinn)

 

Leathan :     Tógfaidh mé an leabhar amárach = I will take the book tomorrow.

Caol:           Brisfidh mé an cupán amárach= I will break the cup tomorrow.

 

  1. Please fill in the rest of the table, on page 38 in your book, for both of the above Briathra.

Good morning 5th class, Week three down! Well done to all of you for adjusting to this new way of life and to all of you who have been in contact with me on ClassDojo, sending me samples of your work.

Few Important items to draw your attention to:

This is the last day of your work before the Easter holidays. Of course, these holidays will not be like previous years, but it is important that you all take a break in some way. That way we’ll all be refreshed for when we return to online learning on Monday the 20th April. While there is a break in the structured school work, in the sense that I will not be posting daily, I would urge all of you to continue following a routine of some sort. Routine is so important at a time like now.

Here are some suggestions:

  1. I have set up a SPLASH MATHS account for all of you. Details of how to log in and your passwords will be sent to you on Class Dojo. This is a fantastic site, that will allow you to continue to access all areas of the Maths Curriculum. I would advise all of you to log in to this. More details on Class Dojo.
  2. Continue getting out into the fresh air and exercising. The importance of this cannot be underestimated!
  3. Read every day for 15 minutes, don’t forget about David Walliam’s daily audio stories available at the following link https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/ .
  4. Urban Rascals will be continuing as normal every Tuesday and Thursday at 1.30. As will Joe Wick’s live exercise classes Monday to Friday at 9am on his Youtube Channel.
  5. Continue watching the School Hub on RTE2 at 11am.
  6. Continue your Diary Entries.
  7. Continue drawing, remember “Draw with Don” on YouTube, if you’re looking for ideas.
  8. Look back on previous posts on this page and catch up on work that you may not have had the chance to start.
  9. I have added a 5th Class Work Pack for you also, if you should choose to avail of this.

Good morning 5th class, Week two down. Well done to all of you for adjusting to this new way of life and to all of you who have been in contact with me on ClassDojo, sending me samples of your work. Enjoy your time off over the weekend, try and get out in the fresh air if you can do so safely, maintaining social distancing at all times. Try to help your parents out too with some cleaning and cooking. Perhaps you could send me some photos on ClassDojo too.

  • Please get an older sibling or whoever’s looking after you to give you your spelling test today. Let me know how you got on, on Class Dojo.
  • Free Writing: Please open the attached link, scroll down and write a story based on picture number 3 (Pirate scene). t-s-3564-picture-and-prompts-writing-template_ver_1    Remember everything we have learned about story writing:

e.g. no boring/criminal words, think of the list of interesting/exciting words we compiled together in class. One example of a boring/criminal word: ‘said’ = More interesting/exciting words that can replace ‘said’ =  answered, replied, muttered, whispered, exclaimed, cried, shouted etc. I’m sure you can think of many more boring/criminal words!

Speech/Quotation marks if your characters are talking, correct use of capital letters and proof reading your writing! Does it make sense?

You are all capable of creating some wonderfully imaginative and descriptive stories. This will become a weekly task, so please only do picture 3 this week.

Half way through the week 5th class! Well done to those of you who have been in contact with me on Class Dojo this week. It’s lovely to hear from you, you are working so hard and it’s great to see. I’m looking forward to seeing some of these WW1 Projects when you are finished! 

Parents, by now you should be getting into more of a routine, hopefully, and starting to see what your child is capable of. If you feel your child has done enough work for the day, but hasn’t completed everything I have assigned, that is ok. You decide what works for your child and your family. We are all going through quite a stressful situation, so I certainly  do not want school work causing any further stress. As always, feel free to check in with me on Class Dojo, if you want to ask me something or your child wants to send me their work.

Maths 

Here are the answers to this week’s Mental Maths. Box C +D  pg 27. Please be honest with yourself in your corrections and learn from your mistakes, so you hopefully don’t make the same mistakes in next week’s two Mental Maths Challenges.

As you know, we were about to begin the topic MONEY in Maths so we will work as best we can online.

Open up Planet Maths Topic 18 Money pg 114 and look at Box B ‘Eoin’s Ski Shop’. 

There is an orange list detailing the price of different items. (First item: Socks €5.60) There are 8 customers in the table, each customers purchases are listed and the money they handed to the cashier. 

Q1 asks you to calculate how much each customer spends?

Q2 asks you to calculate how much change each customer receives? 

So lets look at Customer 1 together :

Jane bought 2 goggles and 1 helmet. We know goggles cost €33.50 each and Jane bought 2 so when I multiply this by 2 it gives me €67.00. 1 helmet costs €77.25. So, to answer Q1 I need to add €67.00 + €77.25 which tells me Jane spent €144.25.

Now lets move onto Q2. We can see Jane gave the cashier €250 when we look at the table. So we know to work out the change she received we need to subtract what she spent (€144.25 ) from what she gave the cashier (€250). This tells us Jane receives €105.75 change

Please work out the rest of the customers now please in your copies. I will post answers tomorrow.

I know a lot of you were keen to start a research project on this topic. So I encourage every one, if you wish to begin a Research Project on WWI. I would really enjoy seeing some of your projects  when we are all set up on Class Dojo. Take your time with this project.

Scanned pages attached of the chapter for those who don’t have the book:

Good morning 5th Class. 😊   I hope you are all well and remembering to hand wash and the importance of social distancing. 

Parents, you all should have received a text message from Mr Moran yesterday about Class Dojo.  Class Dojo is a tool that we already use in our classroom, your son/daughter will fill you in on how we use it. Over the next few days, you will receive an invite to join Class Dojo, please accept. This will become a form of class communication for you, should you or your child have any questions or queries. Please remember class communication should be kept within school hours 9am-3pm Monday -Friday only. I will do my best to reply to messages within this time frame. Please be mindful, that this is a class of 30 pupils/30 parents communicating with me, thank you.

Please find your work outlined below. Decide with your parents what works best for you and your family. Will you complete all work today and have a free weekend or will you do a little today, tomorrow and Sunday, to spread the workload and give you something to do each day?

Cursive Handwriting: Please continue on from where you finished in school in both your Handwriting Book and Handwriting copy. Do one page in both please. Remember to check the self assessment on the top of the page and please rate your handwriting using the smiley faces, like you do in class.

I have attached handwriting sheets for those of you who were not in on Thursday and may not have your Handwriting Books/copies. Please just do your handwriting in the copy you are using, if you don’t have your handwriting book/copies. If you would like to follow on from where you left off in your handwriting book, perhaps you could text one of your friends from class and get them to Whatsapp you on a picture of the page you’re on.  Continuous Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet 2  Continuous Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet

Free Writing: Please open the attached link, scroll down and write a story based on picture number 2 (ski scene). t-s-3564-picture-and-prompts-writing-template_ver_1    Remember everything we have learned about story writing:

e.g. no boring/criminal words, think of the list of interesting/exciting words we compiled together in class. One example of a boring/criminal word: ‘said’ = More interesting/exciting words that can replace ‘said’ =  answered, replied, muttered, whispered, exclaimed, cried, shouted etc. I’m sure you can think of many more boring/criminal words!

Speech/Quotation marks if your characters are talking, correct use of capital letters and proof reading your writing! Does it make sense?

You are all capable of creating some wonderfully imaginative and descriptive stories. This will become a weekly task, so please only do picture 2 this week.

Diary Entries :I would also like you to begin ‘Diary Entries’ from today on please, to document you and your families daily life and routine during this historic time.  These links below will help you, please remember neat handwriting and presentation.

  2. A box of chocolates cost €4.85, what change did I get from €50 when if I bought 9 boxes?
  3. What must be added to 10 times 53 to make 600?

Dhún tú an dorás inné.

Dhún sé an dorás inné.

Dhún sí an dorás inné.

Dhún sibh na doirse inné.

Good morning 5th Class 🙂 I hope that you and your families are well and are keeping safe at this time.

Like we discussed in class last Thursday, I will be posting work for you to complete on this page on a daily basis.

Please try your best to complete what you can and continue to focus on neat handwriting as usual.

I understand some students were not in on Thursday to take home books so I will attach the scanned pages of the books that I will be assigning work from, for those pupils.

Pupils who were in on Thursday have all of these books at home, so you will not need to use these scanned sheets.
