Answer the questions below using your calendar to help you.

  • How many months are in one year?
  • How many months have 30 days?
  • How many months have 31 days?
  • What month comes before May?

Maths Group 1

Counting up in 2s as far as you can go. Now can you count backwards all the way to 0?

Time:

This week, if you have a calendar in the house it will be very helpful as we will be learning about the months of the year. If you don’t have a 2020 calendar, an old one will be fine!

Today, can you write out the names of all the months of the year using ordinal numbers?

e.g. 1st January.

 

Maths Group 2

  • 9 times tables. Write out all 9x tables. Pick out the ones you know and then focus on the tricky ones. Try to think of ways to remember these tables. e.g. We know that 10 x 9 = 90, 5 x 9 will be half of that, so 5 x 9 = 45!

Can you see a pattern with the 9x tables? When you write them down, the tens always go up one and the units go down one!! This might help you to remember them very easily!

  • We are coming to the end of division this week and are doing the Check Up at the end of the chapter. Try to use your Times Tables as much as you can!

Good Morning everyone,

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend at home. Today marks the first day of what would have been Active Week in school. Despite us not being able to do it in school, we are going to try to be as active as possible at home. In this time especially, it is so important to keep active to keep your body and brain busy. Because we have to stay at home for the moment, we are more likely to be bored and getting your body moving will get the blood flowing to your brain and decrease the chances of getting too bored! I will post up some ideas each day of ideas to keep active at home and you can choose whichever ones that you like!

Of course Urban Rascals will be live every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon as usual and Joe Wicks will be streaming from 9am every day.

RTÉ Hub will be on at 11 every morning also so make sure to tune in.

Have a lovely day!

Active Week Ideas for Monday:

  • Make your own obstacle course
  • Make your own work-out routine and then hold a family work-out class in the evening where you’re the instructor
  • Run up and down your stairs 5 times
  • Fitness Alphabet: Make up an exercise for every letter in the alphabet and spell your own name and other words

Hello everyone!

Today marks the day when we should have been breaking up for Easter Holidays but instead, we have already been at home for three weeks. We still don’t know when school will reopen again but we are so looking forward to having you all back.

While we will give you a break from school work during the holidays, do use the time to read, exercise, help your parents at home and relax.

RTÉ hub will continue during the Easter break. The lessons are interesting and fun and it would be brilliant to continue watching every day.

Urban Rascals will also continue during the break. Keep going with the exercise and send in your pictures of your workouts.

I hope you have a lovely and restful Easter Break. I will be back posting here on Monday 20th April.

Finding the difference:

When you are asked to find the difference between two numbers, there are two ways to solve this. You can 

  1. Count on from the first number to the second number.
  2. Take away – from the biggest number to the smaller number to find the difference.

Both strategies will give you the correct answer so it’s up to you to choose how you want to do it! You might want to try both methods to check with one you prefer.

You could use a number line or hundred square (Splat Square will help you) or you could use objects such as pasta to use as counters.

Find the difference in the following number sentences:

13 + _ =  18

11+ _ =  19

12 + _ =  20

8 + _ = 16

3 + _ = 15

Today, I want to show you how you can add 11 to any number! 11 is just one MORE than ten, and you know how to add 10. So to add 11, you add on 10 first and then just add one more!

For example: 24 + 11 =

Good Morning Everyone and I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

A few things to note for the coming week:

There are online classes on RTE 2 from tomorrow morning at 11. Be sure to tune in!

Urban Rascals will be giving away a prize of a Home Study Centre this week so please don’t forget to tune in at 1:30pm on Tuesday and Thursday this week, take a picture or video of your workout and send it in and you’ll be in with a chance to win. Joe Wicks’ workout will be available every morning from 9am also. Why don’t you use what you’ve learned from these workouts and lead your family in your own workout?

I have been trying to connect with some parents on Class Dojo. If your parents have not received a message from Dojo, they can email me at mmccarron@bunscoilris.ie and I can resend the invitation. Class Dojo is a quick and easy way of staying in touch and it means I can reply back to messages or queries very quickly if you should need any help.

Have a look at the Bunscoil Rís Facebook Page – there is food available for families instead of the lunch that you would receive if you were attending school. If your parents would like to avail of this food, they can phone 086 0211338.

Can you write a sentence using each of these words?

An extra little challenge today: I know most of you have younger siblings so I would like you to pick a book for a younger child today and practise reading it. Ask an adult if there are words that you don’t know. By evening, it would be lovely if you could read your little brother/sister their bed time story. Use expression and make it as enjoyable as possible for both of you! If you don’t have a younger sibling, you could ask an adult if you could borrow their phone and record yourself reading the book. You might have a younger friend or cousin who would really enjoy receiving the video and having a story read to them. Good luck and I would just love to see a recording if it was possible!

Adding 10 – Can you add ten to the following numbers? 20, 40, 70, 22, 45, 86, 21.

First you can write them down OR you can use Splat Square (google splat square primary games and a 100 square will come up)

What do you notice about your answers? What happens to the Tens digit? What happens to the Units digit?

When adding ten to any number, the TENS digit goes up by one but the Units digit stays the same. This is because we are adding on one ten but 0 units!

If you look at the pattern when you add on ten, you should easily be able to add on ten in your heads!

Now try adding ten to these numbers: 33, 90, 16, 49, 52, 66.

Maths Group 2:

This week we will be revising 5x tables! These are ones that we are very familiar with and shouldn’t take as much time as the others! So if you have time, please revise tables 2, 3 and 4 this week as well to check that you don’t forget!

Well done for getting through week 2 of home learning. Ms. Whelan’s 6th Class won a Pizza Party today because almost all of their parents had connected through Class Dojo. Have your parents connected using Class Dojo?

I hope some of you enjoyed the Urban Rascals workout today. It will be back next week.

Again, please don’t feel pressure to complete all of the work. If there is work on your own class website that you are able to do, you don’t need to do both. Get out and enjoy the lovely weather. Daffodils will be gone very soon, so why don’t you pick some if there are any growing near your house. If you have food colouring, you could put a daffodil into a glass/jar of food colouring. It will suck up the colour and dye itself. 

If you have any pictures of creative work that you have done, be sure to send it to me or your class teacher and we will put it up on Class Dojo.

Have a great weekend 🙂

Good Morning everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

I hope that you have gotten used to learning from home and are able to keep a routine going. Today, why don’t you do something to help out at home such as washing the car, hoovering the inside of the car, choosing a cupboard that needs to be sorted and cleaned or cleaning out your bedroom.

If you would like to ask the Minister a question, email him at news2day@rte.ie. You can write your question or record it and include your parents’ contact details in your email. Keep an eye on News2day for updates.

Well done for getting through the first few days of learning from home. It’s almost the weekend so you will have a break from learning.

Hope you are all getting out in the nice weather, helping your parents and filling your days with things that keep your mind and body active. I am going to post a link to the 10@ 10 on RTÉ but you could also do Joe Wicks Kids workouts, Cosmic Kids Yoga or you can get outside and come up with your own way to keep active.

I am hoping to have Class Dojo up and running for next week so please feel free to ask your parents to contact me if you need any more information or guidance on the work I have planned. I am sure you will know which group work is relevant to yourself, but if you are unsure, I can let your parents know which work you should pay attention to. I would be very happy to help. Again, my email address is mmccarron@bunscoilris.ie.

Have a lovely weekend with your families.

Ms McCarron

Good Morning everyone,

I hope you found the first day of working from home OK.  Hope that everyone is following the guidelines and staying at home and practising social distancing as much as possible!

Please don’t forget to get some fresh air and exercise, it is really important that you keep active in order to keep up with your learning.

If you are confused about any of the tasks outlined on my plan, please feel free to contact me and I will get back to you. My email address is mmccarron@bunscoilris.ie.

Please start your day by doing the 10@10 with RTÉ Jr.

10 @ 10

Literacy:

Toe by Toe – if you are doing the Toe by Toe programme with me, please ask an adult to work with you and you can move on to the next page.

Reading: Spend 15 minutes reading a book by yourself. Folens online have made their content available online for free since yesterday so if you are short of books, go to their English books and choose a comprehension that you can read. (this may not be from the 5th Class book, pick one that you are able to read)

 

Phonics Play Page. Click on Phase 3. Work on the sound ee. You must sort the words into real words and nonsense words. Sound and blend each word. Give Obb the nonsense words and Bob the real words. Please use the link that was provided yesterday.

 

High Frequency/ Tricky words

https://www.highfrequencywords.org/hfw100fp.pdf

Revise reading and spelling the first three words on the list. Write sentences using these words.

Maths

If you were successful with your 2x tables yesterday, move on to 3x tables today. It’s a good idea to write down your tables, rub out one or two and see if you remember them. Keep going until you can remember them all!

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Maths Group 1: Number Bonds to 10. Write all of the ways that you can make 10. If you have a sibling or parent who is free to play a game, play ‘Number Bond Tennis’ where you pretend to bat a ball between you. One person shouts one number and the next must ‘bat’ back shouting the matching number bond. e.g. 5 + 5, 6 + 4, 10 + 0 etc). Alternatively, there is also a number bond game option when you click the link above.

Maths Group 2: Fractions: Find a quarter of the following numbers: 24, 16, 48, 36, 8, 28. Don’t forget that you can use your times tables to find the answers.

Get outdoors as much as you can during the day and be as active as you can.

Good Luck!

Ms McCarron

Dear Parents,

Hope that everyone is keeping safe at home. I am including some tasks that will help your child revise what we have covered so far this year. As I have a number of different groups, some of the learning material may not be relevant to your child. If this is the case, please don’t worry and complete tasks that they can access and are familiar with.

I have included tasks that will appear daily as it is important that they practise these as much as possible. I do understand that Class Teachers will have assigned tasks also and that every child’s home situation is different. Please don’t stress if all tasks are not completed. This will just be a guide on how you can help your child to progress during this school closure.

Many thanks,

Mary McCarron
