    Maths: Mental Maths book daily – Week 27. Revise tables X 12

    This week’s maths topic is Area. Area is a measure of how much space there is on a flat surface. … For example, in a rectangle we find the area by multiplying the length by the width.

    Example: What is the area of this rectangle?

    The formula is: Area = width × length

    The w = 5cm and L = 3cm: Area = 5cm × 3cm = 15 cm2 (cm x cm = cm2 , meters x meters = m2)

    If you have a ruler at home see if you can find the area of 2D objects from around your home.

  • Hi 4th class,

    We hope you’re all well and finding plenty of things to keep you occupied at home. Don’t forget to be kind and helpful to your parents and smaller brothers and sisters when you can.  Here are some suggestions for work that you can do at home this week. Don’t forget to send any questions that you have or photos of the work you have been doing to us at 4thclassteacherstkevins@gmail.com

    PE: Let’s keep up our fitness challenge for another 10 days but take it up a level! This time you can try: Mon – 20 star jumps, Tues – 20 press ups, Wed – 20 lunges, Thurs – 20 burpees, Fri – plank for 20 seconds.

    Maths: Mental Maths book daily – Week 28. Tables- divided by 2, divided by 3

    This week in Maths we are revising fractions. Remember to find a fraction of something we divide by the number on the bottom and multiply by the number on the top. So ½ of 12 = 12 divided by 2 = 6

    Find the answers to the following sums:

    1/3 of 24, 1/5 of 40, 1/6 of 36, 1/9 of 45, 1/10 of 90, ¼ of 44, 1/6 of 54, 1/5 of 55, 1/8 of 56, 1/10 of 100, ½ of 66, 1/12 of 48, 1/3 of 39, 1/10 of 10, 1/8 of 8

    Now, if we want to get 2/5 of something we have to remember to multiply by the number on the top. Let’s get 2/5 of 45. First we divide by the bottom. 45 divided by 5 = 9. This will give us one fifth. If we want to get two fifths, we then multiply our answer by 2. So 9 x 2 = 18. That means 2/5 of 45 = 18.

    Try these: ¾ of 24, 4/9 of 18, 7/10 of 30, 11/12 of 24, 3/8 of 32, 2/3 of 33, ¾ of 36.

    Look up topmarks.co.uk and click on 7-11 years category. Spend 10 mins a day on a challenge of your choice.

    English: Spellbound daily – Week 28. Do all exercises and write a sentence for each word in the word box.

    The Word Wise book is available free online from cjfallon.ie Just click on Parent/Student resources, click into Student Resources, tick 4th class/English/Word Wise and you can open the book.

    Read p82 (Eureka! Eureka!) and answer questions A, B, C and D on p83 in your sentences copy.

    Gaeilge: Our Bua Na Cainte book is available on www.buanacainte.ie

    We are continuing with the topic Éadaí (clothes) Click on the 4th class (purple) book and go to page 134.

     Tues: Read the story. Here is some of the vocabulary: ag cur allais = sweating, gliondar croí = delighted, in aice leis = beside. Look up  www.teanglann.ie for any other words you don’t understand. Answer questions 1-5 in your copy.

     Wed: Bua Na Cainte p 135. Read the sentences under the pictures. Bhain mé mo chóta díom = I took off my coat. Using the words in the penguin to help you, finish sentences 1 – 10 at the bottom of the page in your copies.

     Thurs: Bua Na Cainte p 136. Look up the words from the picture on teanglann.ie. Write the words and the meaning in your copies and learn them.

    Fri: Get someone to test you on the words from p 136.

    SPHE:

    Start a gratitude journal. This is a difficult time for everyone and we know it is so hard not to be able to see friends and family. Try and think of one small thing that you are grateful for every day and write it down. If you read this list at the end of the week it will hopefully cheer you up a bit!

    Remember all of these are just suggestions. Try and do a bit of school work every day. We know lots of you are reading and doing projects at home too. Don’t forget to get outside and get as much fresh air as you can. Have a great week!
