How did you get on with yesterday’s work? You had to read a piece from Reading Zone. Did you enjoy it? The prince who later became king was certainly a foolish man.

Did you find the meaning of it? It means bad tempered or uncooperative.

How did you get on with yesterday’s work? Did you like the poem? It was quite short which was nice. The rhyming scheme was easy to figure out. It was AAA BBB. The imagery in this poem is very strong. You can really picture the eagle perched on top of a steep rock near the sea. The eagle is in a powerful position and is able to see all around him. At the end of the poem he takes off, in search of his prey it seems.

Today for English we will return to our Reading Zone book. We don’t have too many chapters left in this at this stage! Open up your book on p136.

Today is day 28 of the challenge and today I would like you to draw something from space. This is a lovely topic. It can be a planet, a star, a rocket or astronaut. The options are endless.

 

If you run out of ideas, there are so many suggestions of things to do available online, have a look at Twitter and Pinterest in particular. I also hope that you have all continued to read during this time. Have a good day and look after yourselves. Help your parents as much as you can and don’t forget to keep washing those hands and practice social distancing! Be Safe!

Open your Planet Maths on page 119. Today’s work is still about Ratio. Ratio is a war of comparing quantities of something. If you had a question such as Divide €50 in the ratio 7:3. To do this, you need to find total number of parts 7+3=10. The €50 has to be divided into 10 parts. 7/10 and 3/10. 7/10 of €50 is €35 and 3/10 is €15. So the answer is €35 : €15.

Try as much as you can on p119 in 30 mins and see how you get on.

How did you get on with yesterday’s work? Did you like the poem? When you read the poem, did you realise what events the poet was referring to? She was talking about World War Two and The Blitz. This was the bombing attack on London in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The imagery in the poem definitely provokes images of bombs and the aftermath of the attacks.

Today for English I would like you to write a diary entry. You wrote one of these last week, do you remember what a diary entry is? It’s a written account of personal events. The language in a diary is quite informal. It should read like you’re talking to a friend. Diary entries should be dated too. These diary entries will be very interesting to look back on in the future, as we are living in exceptional times.

I’ll leave it up to you whether you’d like to continue completing your confirmation book. The choice is yours. The books themselves are lovely, and you have made such an effort up to this point so the choice is yours.

Next week I will be adding details for Mathletics, which the school has now signed up to. I will update you next week.

Today we will continue work on problem solving. How was yesterday’s maths? Did you manage to figure out the answers?

A (a)They would all be back in the library after 60 days. The LCM of 3 4 and 5 is 60.

(b) They would all be back in the library on April 30th.

B There are 300 in the school. (40% walk, 0.45 go by car that’s equal to 85%. So 15% must go by bus. 15% = 45. 15% = 3/20 as a fraction. So 45 = 3/20. The whole school is 45 ÷ 3 = 15 x 20 =300)

C The time in San Jose is 3.35 am. (It is 18 hours in total behind Sydney)

Open your Planet Maths on page 118. Today’s is about Ratio. Ratio is a war of comparing quantities of something. eg. If you have 7 blue pens and 3 black pens, you would say the ratio of blue to black pens is 7:3. e.g. If you have 15 women in a queue and 19 men, you would say the ratio of women to men is 15:19. Also If you had 10 apples and 8 oranges, the ratio would be 10:8. This can also be simplified. Can you find a common number that divides into both equally? 2. 10÷2=5, 8÷2=4. So the simplified ratio is 5:4. Try as much as you can on p118 in 30 mins and I’ll give you the answers tomorrow.

Today is day 23 of the challenge and today I would like you to draw feet! They can be a picture of your fee, another human’s feet, they can be an animal’s feet – big or small the choice is yours!

 

I’ll leave it up to you whether you’d like to continue completing your confirmation book. The choice is yours. The books themselves are lovely, and you have made such an effort up to this point so the choice is yours.

If you run out of ideas, there are so many suggestions of things to do available online, have a look at Twitter and Pinterest in particular. I also hope that you have all continued to read during this time. Have a good weekend and look after yourselves. Help your parents as much as you can and don’t forget to keep washing those hands and practice social distancing! Be Safe!

Thursday April 30th

Morning everyone! I hope that the week is going ok for you and yesterday’s work was manageable.

Well done on the effort you’ve been making over the previous days and weeks and do your best to keep it up this week. I know it’s not always easy to stay motivated, so if you have any comments / feedback / questions on any of the work we’re doing don’t hesitate to contact me on Class Dojo. You can also add any work you complete onto your Portfolio on Class Dojo too if you would like to.

Don’t forget this week is Active School Week or Active Home Week! There are lots of different things you can do inside or outside your home to stay active. Urban Rascals is today, Joe Wicks does P.E. online every morning at 9am and there’s plenty of videos on YouTube or GoNoodle to give you ideas either.

Maths

Ms. Tobin also includes maths on her page, so if there are any pupils that the find the maths here too hard then there is no problem with attempting Ms. Tobin’s work instead.

Counting challenge: Last week you looked at square numbers. Today I would like you to do a little bit more on this for your counting challenge. Start with the number 4 today. How far can you go calculating the value of 4 to the power of another number. e.g. 41 =4, 42 = 16 etc. How far can you get in a minute? Record your answer.

 

Yesterday’s work: p167

  1. Did you manage to complete the different patterns? I hope they were ok!
  2. 1) What are the next 3 terms? a) 25 30 35 b) 55, 66, 77 c) 30, 36, 42 d) 21, 25, 29 e) 56, 65, 74
  3. f) 51, 58, 65 g) 44, 50, 56 h) 106, 127, 148

2) a) 80, 75, 70 b)36, 30, 24 c) 70, 63, 56 d) 50, 25, 0 e) 108, 96, 84 f) -20, -25, -30 g) 7, 0, -7

  3. 1) a 9, b 25, c 64, d 100, e 144, f 196, g 400

 

We will continue our number theory work today. It’s a little bit different today. There is not as much maths involved as there is symbol decoding. Use the key at the top of p168 to help you. There is a little bit of info about the + symbol. This is called the plus or minus sign. It’s a little bit unusual, it’s not often used but it’s handy to know. if you see a question such as 70 + 5 means what is 5 higher or lower than 70 = 75 to 65. Another example would be 80 + 6 means 6 higher or lower than 80 so the range is 86 to 74. Go to p168 in your Planet Maths book. Answer as much as you can from on the page in 30mins. Read through each question before you answer, they are not as tricky as you might think. I’ll give you the answers tomorrow.

I hope your story in Reading Zone has been going ok this week. We’re almost finished it and I’m still none the wiser about John and what happened him in that strange inn. The language in this story should be easy enough for you to understand too? If you have any questions about the story or you would like me to check any of the answers you can send them on to me on Dojo. Today I would like you to answer E and F. E is a little bit of punctuation revision – capital letters, full stops, commas, speech marks and question marks. Do you remember where these are all used? F wants you to explore the text and give answers to support your opinion.

Did you like yesterday’s poem called Sea Fever? It is Josh Masefield’s best known poem. It’s a poem with a lot of feeling written in simple language. There are three verses or quatrains. A quatrain is a verse with four lines. The rhyming scheme of the poem is AABB CCDD EEFF. Did you realise that it’s all about the sea? The poet talks about his longing to go to the Sea, it is a place of great beauty and somewhere he longs to be.

Today for English I would like you to have a look at your Reading Zone book. Have a look at Unit 26 The Hook on p127. Have a little read through, there are lots of words highlighted in Red. Do you know what these all mean? If you can understand all the words that’s great. Read through to the end and when you are done, Answer A and B in your copy.

If you run out of ideas, there are so many suggestions of things to do available online, have a look at Twitter and Pinterest in particular. Twinkl, Vooks and Splash Maths are great too. I also hope that you have all continued to read during this time. Good luck with the work, have a good day and look after yourselves. Help your parents as much as you can and don’t forget to keep washing those hands and practice social distancing! Be Safe!

Snip Spellings – Session 24: revise all spellings

When you have had a chance to look over all your spellings, get somebody at home to ask you them. You can upload your spellings to your Class Dojo portfolio when you’re finished if you would like me to check them either.

Today for English I would like you to write another Diary extract. It’s been a while since you wrote one of these. Don’t forget to put a date on your diary extract. I’m sure over the last few days you will have had plenty of information that you can add into the piece. These can be uploaded to Class Dojo when completed.

This week’s verb was the verb “to see.” Have a quick look over all the tenses. Can you spell and pronounce them all? When you have had a chance to revise test yourself and see can you write the three tenses out correctly.

Try are correct the following sentences when you have the verb written out:

  1. An (feic tú) mo mhála scoile inné?
  2. “(Feic sinn) thú amárach,” arsa Jess.
  3. (Feic mé) an t-eitleán thuas sa spéir anois!

I saw this video on the RTE website during the week and it has inspired today’s work. https://www.rte.ie/news/newslens/2020/0421/1132835-jellyfish-venice/ Jellyfish have been spotted in Venice for the first time. There is definitely one silver lining to this current situation, there have definitely been an improvement in the environment, as this video shows. Have a look at the following PowerPoint. roi-t-20162984-life-cycle-of-a-fish-powerpoint-english_ver_1 It looks at the life cycle of the fish. When you have read through it you can draw and label the five different stages of the life cycle in your hardback. Draw them in boxes or in a loop with the different stages marked.

 

P.E./Active work

Try to get at least 30 mins of exercise every day. If you can go outside safely and get some fresh air in this lovely weather that’s great.

 

Art

I hope that you have been enjoying the Art Challenge. I know that art might not be everybody’s subject but this challenge might encourage your creative side. Today is day 18 of the challenge and today I would like you to draw a famous landmark. It could be something like the Spire in Dublin, or the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or Big Ben in London. It could be the Pyramids in Egypt, it could be the Statue of Liberty in New York. It could be a landmark you’ve seen in real life or something you would love to go see. It’s up to you. I would love to see what you draw!

This week we will be looking at some number theory. Open up your Planet Maths on p72. Today we will revise what factors are. Factors of a number are all the numbers that divide evenly into that number. E.g. the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12. There is also some work on the highest common factor (HCF) for short. The HCF of a set of numbers is the biggest number which will divide evenly into all of those numbers eg. The HCF of 21 and 15 is 3. 3 is the largest number that divides evenly into both of those numbers. In your planet maths today I would like you to answer as many of the questions as you can on p72 in 30minutes. The questions are not too bad today so hopefully you will get them all completed in time. I will give you the answers tomorrow.

Yesterday for English I asked you to have a look at your Reading Zone book and to read through Unit 25 which was called A Rat and Some Renovations on p122. I hope you found the story ok and easy enough to read. Did you check the meanings of any words that you didn’t understand? Today I would like you to have another read of the story and this time I would like you to complete E and F in your copybook when you have finished reading. F wants you to explore the text a little bit further and give evidence from the text to support your answer. E.g. “I think this story is a comedy/drama because…we can see this in the story when…”

History-P.E. the Olympics were due to take place in Tokyo this Summer. They have been rescheduled for 2021. Hopefully they will go ahead then and we will all be able to enjoy viewing the events when they’re on. Today I would like you to look at the following PowerPoint about the Olympics. Olympics past and present

In this it gives you some information about the Olympics in its Ancient and Modern forms and compares the two. Have a little read through this and when you are finished I would like you to undertake a little bit of research online for me. I would like you to pick an athlete that would have been competing in this year’s Olympics and I would like you to write a fact file about them in your hardback. What’s their name, where are they from? what even were they competing in? have they won any medals in this event previously? I would love to see some of this finished work too, so you are welcome to take a picture of it and send it on.

I hope that you have been enjoying the Art Challenge. I know that art might not be everybody’s subject but this challenge might encourage your creative side. Today is day 17 of the challenge and today I would like you to draw something with wings. This is such a nice suggestion! You can draw anything you like with wings – birds, butterflies, aeroplanes or whatever you like! You can use your imagination and draw something that doesn’t have wings traditionally and you can add them on! The options are limitless and I look forward to seeing some of your work!

This week’s verb is the verb to see. Yesterday you focused on the A. Chaite, today I would like you to focus on the A. Láithreach.

Yesterday’s work:

1.      She saw the news on T.V. = Chonaic sí an nuacht ar an teilifís

2.      He will see the dog in the park = Feicfidh sé an madra sa pháirc.

4.      I saw my sister reading a book = Chonaic mé mo dheirfiúr ag léamh leabhar.

5.      They see the guards on the road = Feiceann siad na gardaí ar an mbóthar

6.      We saw lots of birds today = Chonaiceamar go leor éan inniu.

Litriú: siopa (shop), sliotar (sliotar)

 

Am Don Léamh p40  Mapa. Have a read of the story today and look at the vocabulary on the page. Do you understand most of the story? It should be reasonably straight forward. Use your dictionary to help you if necessary. Try answer part A and B in your copybook when you’re done.

Science – today’s PowerPoint is full of interesting and random science facts. There are quite a few for you to read!

I hope that you have been enjoying the Art Challenge. I know that art might not be everybody’s subject but this challenge might encourage your creative side. Today is day 15 of the challenge and today I would like you to draw your Zodiac Sign. Do you know what your zodiac sign is? If you’re not sure you can check on the following link https://www.buildingbeautifulsouls.com/zodiac-signs/zodiac-signs-kids/ There are images and signs and personality traits associated with each starsign and I would like you to draw yours today. This should be interesting!

 

If you run out of ideas, there are so many suggestions of things to do available online, have a look at Twitter and Pinterest in particular. Twinkl, Vooks and Splash Maths are great too. I also hope that you have all continued to read during this time. Good luck with the work, have a good day and look after yourselves. Help your parents as much as you can and don’t forget to keep washing those hands and practice social distancing! Be Safe!

Monday April 20th

Morning everyone! I hope that you all had a lovely Easter and enjoyed the weather. Things are still a little bit strange but hopefully schools will know more about what’s happening in the coming weeks. In the meantime, though we’ll continue with school in its current form. Well done on making such a big effort before Easter and I hope you will be able to continue it over the next few weeks. If you have any comments / feedback / questions on any of the work we’re doing don’t hesitate to contact me on Class Dojo.

Don’t forget you can tune into School Hub, it’s on RTE2 every day at 11 or you can watch on the Player. This might give you some new ideas, or might be a good distraction!

Maths

Ms. Tobin also includes maths on her page, so if there are any pupils that the find the maths here too hard then there is no problem with attempting Ms. Tobin’s work instead.

Counting challenge: write down the number 72. In two minutes, how many sums can you write that will give you an answer of 72? You can do addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. Write down all the questions and tally them at the end.

This week we will be looking at some number theory. Open up your Planet Maths on p69. Today we will revise what Prime Numbers and Composite Numbers are. A Prime Number is any number that is only divisible by itself and 1 e.g. 3 or 11. A Composite Number is a number that can be divided evenly by numbers other that 1 or themselves e.g. 12 or 6. In your planet maths today I would like you to answer as many of the questions as you can on p69 in 30minutes. The questions are not too bad today so hopefully you will get them all completed in time. I will give you the answers tomorrow.

He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven

Have a little read of this poem and when you’re done write it into your copybook. Can you figure out the theme and tone of this poem? Is there a rhyming scheme? If you have any questions/comments you can send them onto me on ClassDojo.

Yesterday’s Answers: April 3rd

Please sign up for Splash Maths this week. I’ve sent emails/texts to all parents with the login details. I’ve assigned some maths challenges for you to try and I can see your progress too which is great!

Counting challenge: This week I would like you to use Hit the Button https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button where you can practice your tables daily. Every day this week we’ll revise a different set of tables. Today try the 12 times tables.

This week’s topic is all about money. Remember our currency is the Euro, it’s symbol is € and there are 100cents in €1. There are again lots of resources available online and https://teachingmoney.co.uk/eurosite/euroindex.html has lots of online games for you to play.

How did you find yesterday’s maths? Were you able convert Euros to the various currencies? Today’s maths is a revision of all the work covered during the week. It’s on p135 in your Planet Maths. Try as much of the page as you can in 30mins.

Today for English I would like you to try and write a diary entry. You wrote one of these last week, do you remember what a diary entry is? It’s a written account of personal events. In a diary entry people write about their thoughts, feelings and opinions. They also recount what has happened on a specific day. I want you to think back to yesterday, what did you get up to? Could you write a little bit about yesterday’s events in a diary entry? The language in a diary is quite informal. It should read like you’re talking to a friend. Diary entries should be dated too. These diary entries will be very interesting to look back on in the future, as we are living in exceptional times.

Religion

Today I would like you to complete the page Jesus is Crucified. It’s hard to believe that Easter is only around the corner with all that is going on, but it is! Easter is one of the biggest events in the church and a lot of important events occurred in this week. If you need to refresh your memory have a look at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL8R158Ujp4 . If you need help getting started you can begin with the following “On Palm Sunday Jesus entered Jerusalem where he was welcomed by all the locals. People were so happy to see him, they waved palm leaves and placed palm on the ground. During this week Jesus visited the Temple, where he saw people were not respecting it as a place of worship. He chased people out of the Temple and this angered the Elders. They plotted with one of Jesus’s disciples – a man called Judas, and on Holy Thursday Jesus was betrayed and arrested by the Roman soldiers. On Good Friday…”

How did you find yesterday’s maths? Were you able to calculate the VAT on the various amounts?

Today’s maths looks at foreign currency and exchange rates. This is very topical at the moment in real life as the exchange rates are frequently changing. At this very moment €1 = £0.88 and US$1.09. This is often changing and might be worth looking at in the news. In the planet maths book they give different figures and that’s what you will use for maths today. On page 134 in your Planet Maths I would like you to try and convert the various euro amounts into different currencies. Try as much as you can on this page in 30mins and I’ll give you the answers tomorrow.

Reading Zone Unit 24 p117 I hope you understood the story as you read it yesterday. It was a nice story for the week that’s in it. The main character Betty seems so positive. We could all do with having that attitude at the moment!

Read through the story one more time today and when you are finished answer E and F in your copybook. E is a grammar section and looks at abbreviations. Some English words can be shortened and a full stop is added to the end of the word e.g. Doctor = Dr.

F is a piece of creative writing. Here you get to use your imagination and write a paragraph on a character that is the opposite of Betty. You will need to give your character a name and describe their appearance, attitude and behaviour.

Planet Maths p133. Value Added Tax (VAT) A lot of the work today is similar to what we have already done in percentages this year. We have to find the VAT and add it on to the total figure.

E.g. calculate VAT on table that costs €400 if VAT is 20%.

20% of €400 =  (400 x .20) = €80

Eg 1 bag of crisps is 64c, a 6 packet of crisps costs €3.60. In the 6 packet one pack is €3.60 ÷ 6 = 60c. Therefor the multipack is better value.

Today I would like you to complete the page My Hopes for the Future. Given the uncertainty in our lives at the moment I thought this would be a nice page to do today. Use this time to think about all the things you miss at the moment and what you look forward to when things return to some kind of normality. I would love to see some of your answers for this.

If you need help starting you could begin with the following: “In these uncertain times it is hard to know what the future will hold. We are currently in the middle of a national and international crisis. Our lives are so different to just a few weeks ago. We are no longer in school, we can’t visit many of our friends and family and there are many businesses closed. When this is all over I hope…”

P.E./Active work

Try to get at least 30 mins of exercise every day. If you can go outside safely and get some fresh air in this lovely weather that’s great.

Art

I hope the art challenge is going ok for everyone! Today is Day 10. Today we’re going to practice drawing an Insect. This can be an insect of any shape or size, real or imaginary. The choice is yours. Send on some pictures!

If you run out of ideas, there are so many suggestions of things to do available online, have a look at Twitter and Pinterest in particular. Twinkl, Vooks and Splash Maths are great too.

Over the next few days please try and buy a spare writing copy and a scrapbook.

I’ll be in touch again tomorrow. Look after yourselves, help your parents as much as you can and don’t forget to keep washing those hands and practice social distancing! Be Safe!

English

One of my favourite things to do in English this year has been Poetry. Every week I have really enjoyed looking at a new poem in class and discussing the theme, imagery and finding a rhyming scheme. Let’s get back to that this week. I want you to have a look at the following poem by Philip Larkin called “The Trees”.

 

I want you to write this into your copybook and see can you figure out the rhyming scheme. When you have that done I want you to have a little think and see can you figure out the theme of this poem. What imagery is in this poem? This animation might help too: http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20151201-a-beautiful-animation-of-philip-larkins-the-trees

If you have any questions about this, or comments. Don’t forget to send them on Class Dojo.

I hope the art challenge is going ok for everyone! Today is Day Seven. Today we’re going to practice drawing an Urban Legend. An urban legend is a story, told by kids and adults alike, all over the world. Many of these stories have been told for generations, focusing on a certain area of a town that’s “haunted” or some inexplicable sightings that seem to plague an area. The following link has some examples of urban legends to inspire your art today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_urban_legends

Morning all! I hope you and your families are all doing ok and looking after each other. Thankfully the weather is nice, which makes things a little bit easier! I hope that you managed to complete yesterday’s work without too much difficulty. Did any of you take part in Urban Rascals yesterday? I saw plenty of pictures on Class Dojo from around the school.

Counting challenge: Final time! Set your timer for one minute. Start at the number 6 and I want you to double your number as high as you can go. Compare your final number to earlier in the week. Did you manage to beat the other days?

I hope that you’ve been doing ok with the topic of Area, especially calculating the area of irregular shapes. I know it’s a hard topic to do without guidance and it takes a lot of practice with those irregular shapes.

Planet Maths p. 116. This is a revision page at the end of the chapter. It revises many of the different kinds of questions you would have practised throughout the week. Make sure that today you know how to calculate the perimeter and the area of both regular and irregular shapes. Also make sure that you are able to change square metres to square centimetres and ares to square metres too.

Do as much of this page as you can in 30mins.

Today for English I would like you to try and write a diary entry. Do you all know what a diary is? It’s a written account of personal events. In a diary entry people write about their thoughts, feelings and opinions. They also recount what has happened on a specific day. I want you to think back to yesterday, what did you get up to? Could you write a little bit about yesterday’s events in a diary entry? The language in a diary is quite informal. It should read like you’re talking to a friend. Diary entries should be dated too. If you would like to look at some examples there are plenty online.

https://penzu.com/how-to-start-and-write-a-diary has some good tips. If you want to send me on any examples on Class Dojo I can have a look at them and give some feedback.

In his free time he wandered through Nazareth’s narrow streets and in the open fields, where He observed and learned much.”
