Mrs O’Connell’s Fourth Class: Ms O’Shaughnessy’s Group. 

Hi girls, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It’s so lovely to see your work and photos on Seesaw. Well done and keep up the good work! 


  1. Table Challenges: This week we are going to focus on the
    ÷ 2 and ÷ 3 tables. Remember, one strategy for division is the “Think multiplication strategy”. So, if you know your multiplication tables, you will be able to do your division tables! Complete the following activities. It can be handy to have a Tables book or Multiplication chart in front of you:


Monday: Skip counting: 2, 4, 6. Count forwards and backwards. Play with a partner. Ask them to say a series of numbers but leave one out: Ex: 2, 4, 8. “Which one did they leave out? Exactly: 6”. Take it in turns to be “on”. 


Tuesday: Repeat above activities, skip counting in 3’s.  


Wednesday: What’s my table? Ask a partner to play with you. He or she chooses a number from the x2 tables. Ex: 24. You must give the multiplication and division table for this number. Ex: 2 x12=24, 24 ÷2=12. 


Thursday: Repeat the above activities for the x3 tables. 


Friday: Write out the multiples for the x2 and x3 tables on pieces/ squares of paper. Place them face down on the table. Turn one over and say the corresponding table for that number: Ex: If you turn over 18, you can say 2 x9=18, 18 ÷9=2. You could “race” each other, one of you turning over the multiples of 2 and the other turning over the multiples of 3. Have fun! 


  1. Add Snap:

A change from Target Numbers this week! You need: A pack of cards with the Jacks, Queens, Kings and Jokers removed. If you do not have a pack of cards, you could always write out the numbers on squares of paper (you would have 40 numbers, 4 of each Ace-10, Ace=1). This is a game for 2-4 players. 

How to play:  

  • The dealer turns over the top two cards. The first person to add the two numbers together and cal out the answer wins the two cards. 
  • The person with the most cards at the end is the winner and becomes the dealer for the next round. 
  • You could also play “Sub-Snap”- subtracting the smaller number from the larger number or “Times Snap”, multiplying the two numbers. 
  1. Time: 

This week we are continuing our work on time. This can be a tricky topic. If you need help, try visiting and typing Teaching Clock into the search bar. Alternatively, you could make a clock if you have a paper plate, drawing pin or blue tack and paper or card to make the 2 hands. 

This week, we are going to do some further practice on the addition of hours and minutes. I will add this activity on Seesaw with a voice recording explaining how to do this. Let me know if you are having any difficulties. 

  1. Extra work- complete only if you have time to do so

Problem-Solving/ Practice: 

Monday: What numbers come next in this sequence: 20, 40, 60, ___, 100, 120, ____, 160, ___, 200, ____. 

Tuesday: What is 1/8 (one eight) of 80? 

Wednesday: 3 hours 15 minutes. = how many minutes?  

Thursday: 120 children took part in Active School week. The teachers split them into groups of 12. How many children were in each group? 

Friday: Which number is the odd one out and why? 28, 70, 14, 32, 35, 56.  



Look out for an optional activity that I will post on Seesaw! 

Read the following texts from My Read At Home Book 4 and answer the questions orally. If there are any words that you don’t know, look them up. If you don’t have the book at home with you, you can find it at: (Bk 4).  

MRAH Book 4:   

Activity A:  

Monday: P. 89 Rip 

Tuesday:  P.90 China 

Wednesday: P. 91 Bully 

Thursday: P.92 Irish English 

Friday: P. 93 Jackdaw 


Activity A: Choose one of these options: 

  • Create a Factfile about China. Include the following information: Population, Language, Capital City, Language, Main Religions, Food, Landmarks/ Landscape, Important Feasts and Festivals. You could upload your work to Seesaw if you like! 


  • The poem “ Bully” shows just how damaging bullying can be. Write a diary entry from the point of view of the person being bullied, describing a day in school. Again, you can upload this on Seesaw if you like. 

 Activity B: If you are using your Seesaw App, why not record yourself reading one of the stories from the My Read At Home book and upload it so I can listen to your reading! 

Writing: More Information Needed! 

We are going to make our story longer by asking questions and adding more details. Read the piece of information below then answer the questions. Finally, re-write the story to include your answers. 

One day, Tom got into serious trouble. He knew his friend was wrong when he suggested it, but Tom went along with him anyway. He knew in his heart that he shouldn’t have gone. Now it was too late. 

Now we are going to add to the passage to make a story. First we need to make up the answers to these questions: 

  1. Who did Tom go with? 
  2. Where did they go? 
  3. Why did they go there? 
  4. When did this happen? 
  5. What happened?  

Who? Where? Why? When? What?
