Optical Illusions can use color, light and patterns to create images that can be deceptive or misleading to our brains. The information gathered by the eye is processed by the brain, creating a perception that in reality, does not match the true image.

For this optical illusions you’ll need two markers or a marker and a pencil to get the two different shades. Just watch the video first and watch and then have a go pausing the video as you draw.

Topic Topic 20: Area.

Area is the term used to define the amount of space taken up by a flat surface. We measure small surfaces in centimetres squared, this is written as cm². Large surfaces are measured in metres squared, this is written as m².

Area is calculated by multiplying the length of a shape by its width.

Area of Rectangles and Squares Each square is equal to 1 cm².

Finding the area of a rectangle:

Step 1: Measure the width of the rectangle = 6 cm.

Step 2: Measure the length of the rectangle = 8 cm.

Step 3: Find the area = Length x Width of the rectangle = 8 cm x 6 cm = 48 cm².

Step 4: If you need to check your answer count the number of squres.

Draw these rectangles on squared paper. Then find their area:

  1. L = 4cm, W = 2cm
  2. L = 10cm, W = 3cm
  3. L = 7cm, W = 5cm
  4. L = 10cm, W = 8cm
  5. L = 9cm, W = 4cm
  6. L = 8cm, W =  1cm
  7. L = 12cm, W = 2cm
  8. L = 11cm, W = 5cm

Topic Topic 25: Number Sentences.

Open sentences are a mathematical sentence that has an unknown part. The frame □ represents the unknown part. For example: Rachel baked a hundred fairy cakes for a party. At the end of the party only twenty five were left. How many fairy cakes were eaten at the party?

100 – □ = 25. The empty box is called the frame, this represents the unknown part of the open sentence

Write each of these as an open sentence using a frame. Calculate the unknown part to complete the equation. 

For example: A number divided by 8 is equal to five.

÷ 8 = 5 

40 ÷ 8 = 5 

  1. A number plus 33 is equal to 62
  2. 21 divided by a number is equal to 3
  3. A number plus 18 is equal to 51
  4. A number multiplied by 6 is equal to 24
  5. A number divided by 11 is equal to 2
  6. 72 minus a number is equal to 12
  7. 55 plus a number is equal to 96
  8. 32 plus a number is equal to 57
  9. 58 minus a number is equal to 47
  10. Seven times a number is equal to 35
  11. 55 plus a number is equal to 96
  12. A number multiplied by 3 is equal to 18
  13. 72 minus a number is equal to 12
  14. A number divided by 11 is equal to 2

STEM engineering challenge  

The greenhouse effect is a process that occurs when gases in Earth’s atmosphere trap the Sun’s heat. This process makes Earth much warmer than it would be without an atmosphere. The greenhouse effect is one of the things that makes Earth a comfortable place to live.

Read this article to understand the greenhouse effect before we start https://climatekids.nasa.gov/greenhouse-effect/

This video also explains the greenhouse effect https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYHAZaasdxI

Building a mini green house:

You will need:
• Empty milk cartons, Straws (for the frame), Large plastic sandwich bags (to cover the frame), Soil, Seeds, Scissors, Tape.

Challenge Instructions:
• Your goal is to build a mini greenhouse using only the materials provided.
• Cut milk carton in half to make the greenhouse base.
• Tape and bend straws to make the greenhouse frame.
• Cut out plastic to cover the top and sides of frame.
• Leave the front side loose so you can water and tend to the plants.
• Add soil and seeds and watch plants grow

To Do: Make Mini Greenhouse...half-gallon Milk Carton, Plastic ...

Remember your design may look very different, engineer’s develop their own products and ideas so give it a go over the next few days and send me a picture of your green house. It’ll be exciting to leave in the sun and watch your seeds grow!

That’s it for today, have a great day!

  • Grammar:

Irregular Past Participles

The past participle is formed by adding the suffix (-ed) to a regular verb root. For Example: Walk = Walked.

However, not all verbs make their past tenses and past participles by add (-ed), these verbs are irregular and have to be learnt. Often they change the vowel sound and sometimes they add other letters too.

These verbs have (i) in the root word, which changes to (a) in the simple past and (u) in the past participle.

Infinitive/Present Simple Past Past Participle
Ring Rang Rung
Swim Swam Swum
Sink Sank Sunk
Begin Began Begun
Drink Drank Drunk
Stink Stank Stunk
Sing Sang Sung
Shrink Shrank Shrunk
Spring Sprang Sprung

These verbs change the vowel sound in the simple past and add (n) or (en) to the infinitive for the past participle.

Infinitive/Present Simple Past Past Participle
Grow Grew Grown
Draw Drew Drawn
Write Wrote Written
Fall Fell Fallen
Bite Bit Bitten
Hide Hid Hidden
Know Knew Known
Give Gave Given
Take Took Taken

  • Grammar:

Contractions

A contraction is a shortened form of a word (or group of words) that leaves out certain letters or sounds. In most contractions, an apostrophe represents the missing letters. For example:  I am = I’m

Contractions and the Verb ‘To Have’

Past Perfect (had) Present Perfect (have/has) Future Perfect (shall/will have)
I’d walked I’ve walked I’ll have walked
You’d walked You’ve walked You’ll have walked
He’d walked He’s walked He’ll have walked
She’d walked She’s walked She’ll have walked
It’d walked It’s walked It’ll have walked
We’d walked We’ve walked We’ll have walked
You’d walked You’ve walked You’ll have walked
They’d walked They’ve walked They’ll have walked

Grammar 7-5

Write the whole words as contractions and write the contractions out in full, with no letters missing. Rewrite the sentences, either expanding or contracting the verb ‘to have’

For example :

I had = I’d

I’ve = I have

They had eaten at that restaurant a few times before = They’d eaten at that restaurant a few times before.

‘We’ve painted a lovely picture’ said Anna – ‘We have painted a lovely picture’ said Anna.

  • Planet Maths:

Remember: Unitary method – The unitary method involves calculating the cost or value of one unit. For Example:

¼kg of flour costs 50c.
How much would 1kg of flour cost?
¼kg + ¼kg + ¼kg + ¼kg = 1kg
50c + 50c + 50c + 50c = €2.00

10 lollipops cost €2.00.
How much would 1 lollipop cost?
1 lollipop = €2.00 ÷ 10
1 lollipop = 20c

Find the value of one:

1. If 12 pencils cost €4.80, how much does it cost for 1 pencil?
2. If ½l of lemonade costs €0.75, how much does it cost for 1l?
3. If 5 chocolate bars cost €5.75, how much does it cost for 1 chocolate bar?
4. If 7 oranges cost €2.24, how much does it cost for 1 orange?
5. If 3kg of sugar costs €3.39, how much does it cost for 1kg of sugar?
6. If 4 T-shirts cost €32.80, how much does it cost for 1 T-shirt?

Calculate:

1.If 6 rubbers cost €1.62…
(a) how much would 2 rubbers cost?
(b) how much would 5 rubbers cost?
2. If 9 apples cost €3.24…
(a) how much would 3 apples cost?
(b) how much would 5 apples cost?
3. If 2m of wool cost €1.46…
(a) how much would 1m of wool cost?
(b) how much would 5m of wool cost?
4. If 3l of water cost €3.30…
(a) how much would 7l of water cost?
(b) how much would 1½l of water cost?
5. If 5kg of potatoes cost €12.50…
(a) how much would 2kg of potatoes cost?
(b) how much would 7kg of potatoes cost?
6. If 10 spoons cost €2.50…
(a) how much would 5 spoons cost?
(b) how much would 12 spoons cost?

Morning,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and had plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sunshine. We will be having a Zoom meeting during the week to have a catch up and a chat, i’ll pop the details up here on the day of the meeting, hope as many of you can join as possible, would be great to see you all! , Remember: Urban Rascals tomorrow at 1.30pm on Urban Gym’s Facebook, RTE School Hub every day from 11am to 12pm and Cúla4 Ar Scoil is on every day from 10am to 10.30am on TG4, this is a fun way to revise and refresh your Gaeilge.

English 

  • Spellings:

As this is a short school week I won’t be setting any new spellings, we will start a new spelling list on Monday!

  • Grammar:

Present and Past Participles:

The Present participle is formed by adding (-ing) to a verb root which helps to form the continuous tenses, which is also used in verb tenses or as an adjective.

The Past participle  is also used in verb tenses or as an adjective. If the verb is regular, the past participle is formed in the same way as the simple past tense, by adding the suffix (-ed).

The rules for adding (-ing) and (-ed) depend on how the root verb is spelt:

1. If the root verb ends in a consonant which is not immediately after a short vowel sound, simple add the suffix (-ing) and (-ed) got example: to dream  = dreaming = dreamed.

2. If the root of the verb ends in (-e), remove it before adding the suffix (-ing) and (-ed) for example: to bake = baking = baked. Except when adding (-ing) to a word like ‘tie’, in this case the (ie) is changed to a (y) for example: to tie = tying = tied

3. If the root verb ends in a consonant immediately after a short, stressed vowel sound, double the final consonant before adding the suffix, for example: to chat = chatting = chatted

4. If a root very ends in (y) simply add the suffix, unless you are adding (-ed) to a verb which has a consonant immediately before the (y), for example: to worry = worrying = worried. The (y) changes to an (i) in the past participle.

Grammar 6-5

Complete the worksheet, make the present and past participle for each of the verbs by adding the suffixes (-ing) and (-ed), using the spelling rules.

Over the next few days we are going to be starting to learn about The Great Famine in Ireland in the 1840s, what caused it, the impact it had on Irish people, how it changed life in Ireland and how it led to mass emigration to Britain and America.

Morning everyone,

Happy Friday, can you believe we have another week finished already? It’s also the start of a new month! Hopefully May brings some positivity!

For all my fantastic artists, Ms Ryan is running an art competition. It involves presenting Cherry Blossoms any way you like. This is a great opportunity to get creative, you can use any medium you like, construction, drawing, painting as well as whatever materials you like such as crepe paper, chalk, oil pastels etc. The competition will be run right up until the 8th of May. There are some lovely art supplies for the lucky winner, i’d love it if as many of you as possible could participate as we have a class full of talented artists and this is our chance to show off 🙂

SPHE 

Since this is such a strange time for us all and so different from what we are use to, it is completely normal to feel a bit worried or anxious sometimes. It is just as important to look after our mental health as well as our physical health during this time. Mental health is the way we think or feel about ourselves and the world around us. It’s related to how we cope with life’s challenges and stresses. Mindfulness is a great way of improving our mental health and well-being.

That’s it for today, keep up the hard work 🙂

Morning 5th class,

Hope you are all getting through the work I am assigning okay, remember i’m on class dojo to answer any questions if you are stuck! Don’t forget to join urban gym’s exercise class on Facebook at 1.30pm today if you can!

Here’s your work for today:

English 

  • Spellings: 

Our spellings this week are words that end in ‘-tious’

Our five spellings for today are: contentious, nutritious, fictitious, propitious, fractious  – Put these words into sentences, trying to show the meaning of the word in the sentence (Some of these words are difficult so make sure you use your dictionary and look up what they mean)

  • Grammar:

Write the table into your  copy (leave around ten lines) and sort the words into adverbs of manner (how?), degree (how much?) and place (where?)

Remember: Adverbs of manner tell us more about how something has happened. Adverbs of degree tell us more about how much, or to what extent, something is done. Adverbs of place tell us more about where something is done.

cleverly                                 almost                            indoors                        nearby

calmly                                   hardly                            quite                             abroad

lazily                                     very                                silently                         upstairs

For example:

Adverbs of Manner Adverbs of Degree Adverbs of Place
fast  greatly downstairs
quickly enough in
slowly extremely below

Challenge: Think of some more adverbs of manner, degree and place and write them in the correct place on your table.

MM Week 29 – Monday & Tuesday

Week 29: Tuesday Questions 1-20

  • Tables:

Revise x 10 tables this week. Tables games on www.topmarks.co.uk  Try to beat your own score every day.

  • Planet Maths:

Topic 18: Money, Mental Computation (Questions 1-30) and Written Computation (Questions 1-12) – attempt as many as you can, don’t forget your rough work.

Planet Maths 28-4

Some of these questions ask you to increase or decrease an amount of money by a fraction, decimal or a percentage.

There is a few different methods you can use to figure out these sums, use whatever works and makes sense to you. A lot of the Mental computation you will be able to figure out without doing all the rough work but I’ve given some examples of how you work out the sums.

Example 1: Find ⅜ of €40

We need to divide €40 by the bottom of the fraction (8)                                   €40 ÷ 8 = 5

Now multiply the answer (5) by the top of the fraction (3)                                 5 x 3 = 15

So, ⅜ of €40 = 15

Example 2: 0.3 of €60

Turn your decimal into a percentage                                                                     0.3 = 30%

First, find 10% of €60                                                                                                    €60 ÷ 10 = 6

Now that you know 10%, multiply your answer by 3 to find 30%                    6 x 3 = 18

So, 30% of €60 = 18

Example 3: 75% of €32

Turn your percentage  into a fraction                                                                     75% = ¾

Divide €32 euro by the bottom of the fraction (4)                                              €32 ÷ 4 = 8

Now, multiply the answer (8) by the top of the fraction (3)                              8 x 3 = 24

So, 75% of €32 = 24

Sound

Sound is made up of vibrations, or sound waves, that we can hear. These sound waves are formed by objects vibrating (shaking back and forth). Sound waves travel through air, water, and solid objects as vibrations. When they reach our ears, these waves make the delicate skin of the eardrums vibrate. The brain recognizes these vibrations as sounds made by different things. The size and shape of sound waves determines the kind of sound heard.

Today we will be looking at unit pricing. We can use the unitary method that we learned yesterday to compare the prices of a single product sold in various quantities. That way we can figure out the best value for money.

Which of these is better value?

A bag of 4 apples for €2.40               or                      A bag of 6 apples for €3.00?

What is the cost of 1 apple?                                        What is the cost of 1 apple?

€2.40 ÷ 4 = 60c                                                              €3.00 ÷ 6 = 50c

So, 6 apples for €3.00 is better value, each apple costs 10c less than the apples in the other bag.

For example, Jane purchased 2 goggles and 1 helmet, the goggles were €33.50 each and the helmet was €77.25.

First I must add to find out how much Jane spent.

€33.50 + €33.50 + €77.50 = €144.50

Jane gave the cashier €250, I must subtract the amount Jane spent from the amount she gave the cashier to find out how much change she received.
