*Please only complete these activities if you get a chance to do so *
Hi girls. How are you all keeping? I hope everyone is doing well. Well done with all the work so far. Keep it going!
Have a lovely week everyone.
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!
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!
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:
This week we are continuing our work on time. This can be a tricky topic. If you need help, try visiting www.topmarks.co.uk 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.
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!

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:
Who? Where? Why? When? What?
