See can they make me cry

When they laugh and call me names.

Or, the bit I hate the most,

Leave me out of all the games.

I want this nightmare over,

I don’t know what to do

Should I tell someone my troubles

And look for help? Would you?

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

Hi girls, I hope you all had a lovely week and enjoyed the good weather. I can’t believe that it is June already and there’s only 1 month left in school. Here is some work for you to do if you get the chance. I’d love to see any of your work on Seesaw or even just send me a little message to let me know how you’re getting on.


1. Table Challenges: This week we are going to focus on the ÷ 4 and ÷ 5 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:

Monday: Skip counting: 4,8,12 etc. Count forwards and backwards. Play with a partner. Ask them to say a series of numbers but leave one out: Ex: 4, 8,_,16 “Which one did they leave out? Exactly: 12”. Take it in turns to be “on”.

Tuesday: Repeat above activities, skip counting in 5’s. ( Easy peasy!)

Wednesday: What’s my table? Ask a partner to play with you. He or she chooses a number from the x4 tables. Ex: 44. You must give the multiplication and division table for this number. Ex: 4 x 11=44, 11 x4=44, 44 ÷ 11=4, 44 ÷4=11.

Thursday: Repeat the above activities for the x5 tables.

Friday: Write out the multiples for the x4 and x5 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 25, you can say 5 x 5 =25, 25 ÷5=5. You could “race” each other, one of you turning over the multiples of 4 and the other turning over the multiples of 5. Have fun!

2. Add on 7:

We’re going to play cards 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 players.

How to play:

· The cards are shuffled and placed in a pile face down on a table. Players take turns to pick a card. They add on 7 to the number on the card and the total is recorded on a scorecard.

· Ex: If you turn over a 2, you write down 2 +7=9

· Continue playing, recording your score each time you turn over a card by adding 7 on to the number that’s on the card.

· When all the cards have been turned over the totals are added up. The player with the highest total wins.

3. Problem-Solving/ Practice:

Monday: What numbers come next in this sequence: 110, 130, _____, 170, ____, _____.

Tuesday: What is 2/9 of 180?

Wednesday: 4 hours 40 minutes. = how many minutes?

Thursday: There are 30 children in fourth class. 15 children did their schoolwork on Monday, 5 on Tuesday and 8 on Wednesday. How many children had done their work by Wednesday? How many children still had to complete their work?

Friday: Which number is the odd one out and why? 9, 25, 31, 44, 43, 57.

4. Look out for an extra challenge on Seesaw!

· Activity B: Why not record yourself reading your favourite text out of the ones above and upload it to Seesaw so that I can listen to it? I’d love to hear your voices.

If you go to Ms. Kelly: 

*Please only complete these activities if you get a chance to do so * 

Hi Everyone! 

I hope you enjoyed your virtual school tours last week. I have been to Italy once and I visited Sorrento. I have yet to visit Pompeii or the Vatican City. Which tour did you prefer? 

For your activity this week I’d like you to write a piece convincing the reader to visit either Pompeii or the Vatican City. 

  • Why should the reader visit?
  • What is there to do there?
  • When is the best time of year to visit?
  • What is the weather like?
  • How long does it take to get there?

You can add a picture of your writing and record your travel tips on Seesaw. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing your writing. 

Enjoy your week. 

Ms. Kelly
