Hello 5th Class.

I hope you all enjoyed the fabulous weather over the bank holiday weekend and had some  great outdoor  fun with your families.

Today was the date for our school tour and how amazing it would have been in Dunmore East Adventure Centre. I know many of you are disappointed that it’s not going ahead but fortunately we have next year to look forward to. In honour of the School Tour and to thank you for all your fantastic work  I would like you to take today off school work and  enjoy the fabulous weather .

If you are out and about  or even in your garden, please take a photo of something beautiful or unusual that you see. It might be a plant, tree, flower, insect, bird or animal. Send it to me and I’ll put them together in a collage. 

In the meantime have a great day.

Mrs. Walsh.

Maths

Mental Maths: Week 34 ( Wed, Thurs, Fri)

 

This week we will be working on the topic of Capacity. You will learn to a) select and use appropriate units of measurement. b) estimate and measure capacity using appropriate metric units and c)write litres and millilitres in fractional and decimal form.

 

We use litres(l) and millilitres (ml) to measure the capacity of containers. Capacity means the amount a container can hold.

 

 

Hot Tip!! Metric systems are designed for decimals  - so use them!

Fill in all the decimal places. 8.27 l = 8,270 ml,  9.8 l = 9,800 ml

Hi 5th Class. I hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend.  Thanks for all your hard work over the past number of weeks. I received some amazing artwork last week as well as some terrific Mexico activities.Some of you certainly know a lot about Mexican food! I am also really impressed with the amount of quizzes you are completing on Readtheory.org. Well done!

 This week please send me your Science experiments and any artwork or other projects you have been working on. I will put the answers to the rest online at the end of the week.


 Here are a few more relaxation exercises and visualisations that you might like to try if you are feeling a bit sad or worried.

Hope you managed to have a chat with one or more of your friends/classmates last week. If not maybe try and get in contact with them this week and have a catch up. I am hoping that I can have a short chat with you all this week, so at some stage I will call your mam or dad and ask if it’s ok. If it’s not a good time I will call back and if you don’t feel like having a chat with your teacher, that’s fine too!


 In the meantime take care and have a great week.The weather is looking dry and sunny so make sure to get lots of fresh air and exercise.

Maths

Mental Maths: Week 33

Tables: 3,6,9 - division 

This week we will be working on the topic of Weight. You will learn to a) select and use appropriate units of measurement. b) estimate and measure weight using appropriate metric units. c)write grams and kilograms in fractional and decimal form and d) solve problems involving grams and kilograms.

 

Remember that we use metric units grams (g) and kilograms (k) to measure the weight of objects.

1g = 1/1000 kg,   100g = 1/10 kg and 1000g = 1kg

 

Try the following:

 Operation Maths  page 77,   Q. 1 and Q. 2.

 Operation Maths  page 78 ,  Q.1 and Q.2

 Operation Maths page 79. Look at Q. 5. You are asked to estimate and weigh either four different shoes OR four different potatoes. Record your answers in the table and then find their average weight. Can you remember how to find an average?

 

Hot Tip!! Metric systems are designed for decimals  - so use them!

Fill in all the decimal places. 8.27kg = 8,270 g,  9.8 kg = 9,800 g.

Art

This week we will be looking and learning about a Spanish painter called Salvador Dali. He had a reputation for being a little eccentric or unusual and when he visited Paris Dali joined the Surrealist group in the city.  Surrealism in art is more about dreamlike images as opposed to lifelike paintings. He often used strange images in his paintings like melting clocks, elephants, eggs, ants, snails and locusts.  He painted ‘The Persistence of Memory’, one of his most famous works, in 1931. It features the famous picture of the melting clock.

You can find out more about Dali in this site www.tate.org.uk/kids/explore/who-is/who-salvador-dali

 

I think you will really enjoy this week’s lesson. It’s called ‘Lost in the Hall’ and includes elements of surrealism and perspective. It’s important that you start off with a square sheet of paper  (24cm x 24cm). The instructions are found here: kidsartists.blogspot.com/2012/10/lost-in-hall-lesson-about-surrealism.html You can use paint, markers or crayons and let your imaginations run riot. Spot the Keith Haring style figures floating in the hall.

Tuesday 19th May.

Good morning 5th class. Hope you’re all up bright and early so you can get some work done and then get to enjoy the good weather that is forecast.

I want to draw your attention to an item in the News section from Mr. Fogarty.  The title is ‘Easing and Reducing’ and I think you’ll be happy with its message.


Here is a link to some online magazines that are free to read. I had a quick look at a few and there are some very interesting articles included, especially in the Primary Planet magazine.

www.newsmagmedia.ie/Previews.aspx


If you have run out of other reading material, Fallons ‘Read at Home’ books are available online. They are suitable for 4th - 6th class so something there for you all. my.cjfallon.ie/preview/student/34560/23

They’re a bit like the Christmas annuals so you should enjoy the stories.


Have a lovely day,

Mrs. Walsh.


 


 

Monday 18th May.

Hi 5th Class. I hope you are all well and enjoyed the weekend.  Thanks for all your hard work over the past number of weeks and please continue to send on anything you would like me to look at. I received some amazing artwork last week as well as some great fact-files on Daniel O’Connell. Lucy kindly reminded me that last Friday was the 173rd anniversary of his death. Well done for spotting that!

 

  This week I am asking for your Geography (Mexico activity) and any artwork or other projects you have been working on. I will put the answers to the rest online at the end of the week.

 

 It is important not to get stressed about this work. Just do the best you can and remember quality is better than quantity! If you are feeling a bit stressed or worried you might like to try the following relaxation exercises and visualisations.

Art

You will have read a bit about the Aztecs in the Geography lesson this week. The Aztec civilisation lasted from 1300 AD to 1521 AD. They built Mexico city and made human sacrifices to their sun god. This week I would like you to try drawing and colouring an Aztec Sun Stone.The Aztec Sun Stone was an enormous calendar that was 12 feet high, 4 feet thick and weighed 24,000 tons! The Aztec calendar was different from our calendar today because it had 18 months each containing 18 days in a year.

 

 You can use whatever medium you prefer to colour it. It looks fabulous with oil pastels if you have some. Otherwise markers, paint or crayons are fine. Have a look here and see if you can create your own.You should create half of your sun using wavy or curved lines and the other half using straight lines. Then colour half of the sun with  warm colors and the other half with  cool colors.

You will see examples here:

greenbayartroom.blogspot.com/2008/09/4th-grade-aztec-suns.html

Good morning 5th class,

I hope you are all well. 

Some of you may find the Maths a bit tricky this week, so just do the best you can and if you are stuck you can contact me and I’ll try to help. 

I’ve received some History fact-files already so well done to those people. The art work I have received is absolutely amazing. Hopefully we’ll soon be able to hug our friends again.

It’s great to see so many of you have logged onto the Readtheory.org site and actually one boy has eleven quizzes completed. You know who you are so well done!

Have a great day everyone, don’t forget to get some fresh air and exercise.

Stay safe,

Monday 11th May.

Hi 5th Class. I hope you are all well and enjoyed the weekend. Wasn’t it so hot on Saturday? It ended with a thunder  storm here, presume it was the same in Clonmel. My two dogs were so scared!

Speaking of dogs, I heard that Róisín’s dog Polly had her puppies. I can’t wait to see a photo of them which I will share with you if it is ok with Róisín.

Thanks for all your hard work over the past number of weeks and please continue to send on anything you would like me to take a look at. I received some amazing artwork last week as well as some fabulous examples of procedural writing. This week I am asking for your History fact-files and any artwork or other projects you have been working on. I will put the answers to the rest online at the end of the week.

Work to be completed May 11th - 15th (Mental Maths, Operation Maths, New Wave English  to be completed in the books, everything else in your copies unless indicated ) This work is also available to view and print here wke.lt/w/s/eNhS6w

 

Maths

Mental Maths: Week 31

Tables: 10, 11, 12 - multiplication. 

 

This week we will be working on Number Theory.  You will learn to a)identify factors and multiples, b)identify prime and composite numbers, c)identify triangular, square and rectangular numbers and d)identify odd and even numbers (Try your best but don't worry if you don't get all the Maths finished)


 

Factors and Multiples (we have come across these in Mental Maths)

When we multiply two factors, the answer is called the product. E.g. 7  x   9   =   63

                                                                                                           Factor x factor = product

What are the factors of 12?   Factors = 1,2,3,4,6,12.  Related pairs = (1,12), (2,6), (3,4)


We often use Multiples to help us count quicker.

E.g. The multiples of 3 are  3,6,9,12,15,18,21……….

These tutorials will help your understanding: data.cjfallon.ie/resources/20707/BAM5_Tutorial_083/lessons/BAM5_Tutorial_083/index.html

data.cjfallon.ie/resources/20707/BAM5_Tutorial_084/lessons/BAM5_Tutorial_084/index.html

Now try Q.2 in Busy at Maths p141 and Q.1 on p142. my.cjfallon.ie/preview/student/16884/149

Complete p81 of Operation Maths.

 

Prime and Composite Numbers: 

If a number has only itself and 1 as factors, it is a prime number, e.g. 7

If a number has more than itself and 1 as factors, it is a composite number e.g.12

Watch this video from Khan Academy which explains prime numbers;

www.youtube.com/watch

Eratosthenes was a famous Greek mathematician who invented the first known method of finding prime numbers.

It is called the Sieve of Eratosthenes. (You pronounce it as ERR + UH +TOS + THUH + NEEZ)

Now do Questions 1 and 2 on p84 of your Operation Maths Book.

For those of you who want a bit of a challenge have a look at the divisibility tests on p143 of Busy at Maths and it will help you to work out whether bigger numbers are prime or composite.  my.cjfallon.ie/preview/student/16884/151

Then try Q.1 on p 144. This is tricky so don’t worry about it too much. 

 

 

Numbers with Shape

A rectangular number can be arranged into the shape of a rectangle. Both factors must be greater than one. E.g. 2x4=8. When drawing them the length is one one more unit than the width.

Square number: When a number is multiplied by itself, the product is a square number. E.g. 3x3=9, 5x5=25, 8x8=64. 

A triangular number can be arranged in the shape of a triangle. 6=1+2+3                                                 

Have a look at the examples on p146-147 of Busy at Maths:my.cjfallon.ie/preview/student/16884/154

Now try Q.1-4 on p82/83 in Operation Maths

 

Odd and Even Numbers

All odd numbers end in ..1,3,5,7,9

All even numbers end in….2,4,6,8,0

A famous mathematician called Goldbach stated that every even number greater than 2 can be found by adding together two prime numbers.  E.g. 8 = 3 + 5,  16 = 5 + 11, . (Try it out!)

When two prime numbers are subtracted, the answer is always an even number e.g. 9-5=4

Now try Q.3 on p84 in Operation Maths

Maths

Mental Maths: Week 30

Tables: 3,5,7,9 - multiplication. 

This week we will continue working on length. You will learn to a) express cm as fraction and decimal of a metre  b) express m as fraction and decimal of a km c)add, subtract, multiply and divide m and km  d) solve problems involving perimeter

Remember: 

1m = 100cm          1cm = 1/100m = 0.01m         

 100cm = 1m         10cm = 1/10m = 0.1m

                              11cm = 11/100m = 0.11m

                              29cm = 29/100m = 0.29m

 

1km = 1,000m        1m = 1/1000km = 0.001km            0.009km = 9/1000km  = 9m

1,000m = 1km        11m = 11/1000km = 0.011km         0.076km = 76/1000km = 76m

                              123m = 123/1000 = 0.123km          0.475km = 475/1000km = 475m

Hello everyone,

Hope you're having a good week and are managing to do some schoolwork. If you look in the News section of the website Mr. Fogarty has included a link to some really cool and interesting activities. It can be found in the 'Some Advice' article. If you try any of them I'd love to see it. I particularly liked the Time Capsule and the letter to my 30 year old self. 

Take care,

Mrs. Walsh

Tuesday 28th April.

Good morning 5th Class,

It's a beautiful morning here so hopefully the sun will keep shining and you will all get outside for a while.


If you scroll down to the Fallon's Maths and Irish work that I assigned, you will find the correct pages to complete. Apologies to those of you who were wondering what to do as the link only opened to the book and not the actual page.


Can I draw your attention to two letters on the News page on this website. One is from the Board of Management to all the pupils in Powerstown N.S. and the other is for your parents/guardians. There is also a statement regarding the First Communion and Confirmation ceremonies.


Have a lovely day,

Mrs. Walsh.


 

 

Monday 27th April.

Hi 5th Class. I hope you are all well and enjoyed the weekend. Thanks to those who have sent on  their History projects, I am thrilled with the efforts you have made. I know it’s not easy trying to work by yourselves but try to do as much of the following work that you can. I have included some optional extra activities as well. 

 

Work to be completed April 27th - May 1st (Mental Maths, Operation Maths, New Wave English and Just Maps to be completed in the books, everything else in your copies unless indicated )

 

Maths

Mental Maths: Week 29

Tables: 2,4,6,8 - multiplication. 

This week we are working on length. You will learn to a) estimate and measure length using appropriate measuring units,  b) convert cm to mm and vice versa, c) how to add, subtract, multiply and divide cm and mm.

Remember: 

10mm = 1cm,    1000 mm = 100cm = 1m,    1,000m = 1km

To convert cm to mm, multiply the number of centimetres by 10. E.g. 3cm = 30mm

To convert mm to cm, divide the number of millimetres by 10. E.g. 55mm = 55/10 = 5.5cm

Small World Geog. Answers

Page 59 (A)

1 Rock materials and decayed plant materials become mixed. Some insects live in this mixture. Their movements help water and air to circulate through the mixture and gradually this process leads to the formation of soil.

2 Decomposers are bacteria, fungi and mini-beasts that break down dead plant material, causing it to decay.

3 Animals and mini-beasts in the soil need air to breathe.

4 They help to break up large lumps of soil, create spaces for air and water to circulate in the topsoil and carry humus from the topsoil to the subsoil.

5 Minerals are tiny particles of rock.

6 Humus is decayed plant and animal material. It adds organic nutrients to the soil.

7 It contains minerals with a small amount of humus.

8 It is a large block of rock that was exposed before the soil formed.

C (you had to do one question, answers may vary)

1 Life was very difficult as the cottier had to work for the tenant farmer without wages. He had to try to grow enough food for his family on a very small plot of land. The family mainly survived on potatoes. Eggs and pigs were sold to pay for clothes and other necessities. The family would have lived in a damp, one roomed cottage and often shared the cottage with hens or pigs.

2 There are few records of the 1741 famine as not many people could read or write back then. They may have been destroyed or lost.

3 Absentee landlords had no interest in their land other than making money from it. They didn’t care about their tenants and employed middle men to rent it out for them. These were very ruthless and would evict families if they fell behind on their rent.

4 Subdividing land was a bad idea as the holdings got gradually smaller and could barely feed a family.

 Fri. 20th March.

 

Good morning 5th class,                                                     

Hope you are all well. It’s a beautiful morning so try to get outside if you can. As Sunday is Mother’s Day you might try to do some art-work as a present for your mams.  Have a look at these: 

https://www.ducksters.com/biography/artists/georges_seurat.php 

https://www.happyfamilyart.com/art-lessons/art-history-for-kids/pointillism-georges-seurat-art-lesson/ (skip down to ‘Make your own pointillism painting’)

 

Then try to do a pointillism painting yourself. You will need some paper, paint and cotton buds. Keep the drawing simple. If you don’t have paint you could try using markers/sharpies. 

 

You could also write an acrostic poem using the word ‘MOTHER’.

There are lots of Mother’s Day activities on Twinkl which is free at the moment.

 

Remember ‘Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do’

 

Take care everyone and I’ll be in touch again on Monday.

 

Mrs. Walsh
