Mrs O’Connell’s Fourth Class: Ms O’Shaughnessy’s Group.
Hi girls, I hope you are all keeping well. I can’t believe that we are half way through June already. I’d love to see or hear a little message from you on Seesaw letting me know how you are getting on..
This work is optional so only do it if you have time on your hands. If you can’t do any part of it, do not stress, just do your best!
Monday: Skip counting: 6, 12, 18 etc. Count forwards and backwards. Play with a partner. Ask them to say a series of numbers but leave one out: Ex: 6, 12, _, 24 “Which one did they leave out? Exactly: 18”. Take it in turns to be “on”.
Tuesday: Repeat above activities, skip counting in 7’s.
Wednesday: What’s my table? Ask a partner to play with you. He or she chooses a number from the x6 tables. Ex: 44. You must give the multiplication and division table for this number. Ex: 6 x 4=24, 4 x6=24, 24 ÷ 6=4, 24 ÷4=6.
Thursday: Repeat the above activities for the x7 tables.
Friday: Write out the multiples for the x6 and x7 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 49, you can say 7 x 7=49, 49 ÷7=7 You could “race” each other, one of you turning over the multiples of 6 and the other turning over the multiples of 7. Have fun!
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:
Monday: What numbers come next in this sequence: 479, 484, 489, ___, _____, _____.
Tuesday: What is ¾ of 400?
Wednesday: 1 metre and 50 cm = how many cm?
Thursday: 20 people got on the bus at the first stop. At the second stop, 5 people got off and 5 people got on. At the third stop, no-one got off but 3 people got on. How many people are on the bus now?
Friday: Which number is the odd one out and why? 12, 24, 36, 42, 48.
Continue with My Read at Home Book (MRAH) if you have it – Read one each day and answer questions orally. Some of you may have different books and that’s ok, just read the one you have! Look up any words that you don’t know or that you find interesting and add to your copies. You can also find the books online at the following link: https://my.cjfallon.ie/preview/student/4131/1 (Bk 4).
Monday: P. 99 A Close One
Tuesday: P.100 Idioms

Activity A: Choose one of the Seven Wonders of the World and write a report about it. Remember the structure of a report: Classification (What is it?), Description (What does it look like, where is it?) and Summarising comment. You might like to upload your report to Seesaw so I can see it!). You might like to visit this website to find out some more: https://www.kiddle.co/Wonders_of_the_World
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.
Writing: New Words!
It is very useful to add new words to your vocabulary! Look up these words in your dictionary and then use them in a sentence to show what they mean!
If you go to Ms. Kelly:
*Please only complete these activities if you get a chance to do so *
