Distance Learning 11th January 2020

Dear Parents and Pupils,

First of all I hope we all had a lovely Christmas. We are back to school on the 11th of January but this time we are back to online teaching. I will update this page with information for the week and we will be using Google Classroom for the time we are out of the class. Children can upload work to Google Classroom and I will be uploading videos and documents related to the work for the week. I have tried to include resources that don't require printing so children will be able to work in textbooks and copy. Second class work will appear on the website first this will be followed by third class work for the week. 

Second Class Work :)

Monday

 

English

  • My Christmas. I would like the children to write all about their Christmas break! Don’t forget the 5W’S who, what, when, where,why. Pupils can also draw a picture after they have completed the task. Be careful of handwriting and spellings ladies :)

  • Spellbound continue to the next week and complete Exercise 1. 

 

Irish

Bua na Cainte pg 77

Cúige Mumhan, Cúige Chonnacht, Cúige Uladh, Cuige Laighean (Munster, Connacht, Ulster, Leinster). Adults can point to each one and ask the question ‘Cén cúige é sin’ ‘What province is this’. 

Adults can ask the children ‘Cá bhfuil tú i do chonaí’ (Where do you live). Children must learn the response which is ‘Tá mé i mo chónaí i …. (Cuige Laighean - Leinster). Children can also ask the adult and ask each family member.

Time – Activities

Ask your daughter to make a cardboard clock at home with moveable hands. Use a paper plate if available or draw around a large plate (dinner plate) and cut out. Write the number 12 at the top, 6 opposite (at the bottom), 3 to the right and 9 opposite on the left hand side. Then fill in the missing numbers, 1,2,4,5,7,8,10,11 at regular intervals, decorate. Draw and cut out a long hand and a short hand, decorate. Attach to the centre of the clock, ensure the hands can be manipulated.

 

Suggested warm up activities - (partner/sibling required)

 

Skipping rope: One child skips while the other counts to

                     20/30/40/50/60. It would be best if the

                     partner could count while looking at the

                     second hand on a watch/clock.

Ball: Throw and catch- count how many good throws

      while counting to 60.

 

Clock

·   Explain to your child that there are two hands on the clock, the long (big) hand and the short hand.

The long (big) hand tells/indicates the minutes The short hand names the hour.

When the long hand points to 12, it tells the hour (o’clock). So, if the short hand is at 8 and the big hand is pointing to 12, it is 8 o’clock.

Do this with all the numbers.

Have your child do this with all the numbers.

·          Show a half hourly time i.e half past 5

Again explain to your child that there are two hands on the clock. When the long (big) hand points to 6, it tells/indicates the half hour (half past). So, if the short (small) hand is halfway between 5 and 6 and the big hand is pointing to 6, it is half past 5. The short hand is gone past 5. 

Do this with all the numbers.

Ask your child to do this with all the numbers.

 

B. a. M.p.114

·     Q.1 (a-h)

 -To what number is the long/short hand pointing?

-What is the time shown on the clock?

·          Q.2 (a-h)

Tuesday 

 

English

Children will begin their class novel today. I would like the children to read up to page 10.  Read page 1 below without showing the child the front cover or telling them the book:

‘I woke up with only two and a half memories. Something was very wrong. I should have remembered so much more. My head is built to hold millions of memories, and I also have extra space in my left butt-cheek, in case of emergencies. The first memory is 15 seconds long. A young girl pulls wrapping paper away from my face. She shrieks happily and her eyes twinkle brightly. The girl has dark hair hanging to her shoulders and a smile so wide it almost reaches her ears. Dangling from the girl’s neck is a butterfly pendant with 16 tiny green, red, yellow and blue jewels dazzling in its wings. This girl is the very first person I remember seeing.’

• Ask them to hunt for key words/clues about the character. Who or what do they think the narrator is? Read the text together, e.g.

• two-and-a-half memories

• built

• millions of memories

• space in my left butt-cheek

• first memory is fifteen seconds long

• wrapping paper

• Encourage the children to make predictions. Prompt with key questions:

 Is a human built?

 What might hold many memories?

• Read page 2 to reveal: ‘A toy robot! Thank you, Grandma!’ Compare this with the class’s predictions

• Pause at page 7. What do you think will happen in the story? Prompt with

questions:

• What motive does the character have?

• What might the robot really want?

• Where do you think the robot is?

• Share page 10 but cover the word ‘panic’. Focus on the action of the robot and the

situation it is in and get the children to fill in the missing emotion word

Time – Hourly time

 

N.B. 1 hour = 60 minutes or 60 minutes =1 hour

      ½ hour = 30 minutes or 30 minutes = ½ hour

 

B.a.M.p.115

·          Point to the clock in Q.1

  • What time is shown on this clock? (Yes, 6 o’clock)

  • How long does it take the long hand to make a full/complete turn of the clock? (Yes, 60 minutes. Using the homemade clock count the 60 minutes, in five-minute intervals.)

  • Give me another name for 60 minutes. (Yes, one hour) i.e 6 o’clock

-To what number is the long hand pointing?

-To what number is the short hand pointing?

-What time is shown on the clock face?

-How many turns must the long hand make to get to the next hour? (Yes, one full turn.)

-Count forwards 60 minutes in 5 minute intervals.

-What time will it be on the clock in one hour from 6 o’clock? (Yes,7 o’clock)

         -  How many turns must the long hand make to go back one hour? (Yes, one full turn)

-Count back 60 minutes in 5-minute intervals from 6 o’clock.

-What time will it be? (Yes, 5 o’clock)

 

·          Do the same with times one hour earlier and later than a given time i.e 3 o’clock, 9 o’clock etc

Plenty of practice is required using the handmade clock.

 

·          Point to Q.2

  • How long does it take the long hand to make half a full turn? (Yes,30 minutes. Using the handmade clock, count the 30 minutes from o’clock to half past, in 5-minute intervals.)

             -Give me another name for 30 minutes.(Yes, half an hour.)

             -How long does it take the long hand to make a half a full turn from half past back to o’clock? (Yes, 30 minutes.

-Using the handmade clock count the 30 minutes in 5-minute intervals)

-Give me another name for 30 minutes. (Yes, half an hour.)

-So, 30 minutes + 30 minutes = 60 minutes or 1 hour. ½ hour + ½ hour = 1 hour

-To what number is the long hand pointing? (Yes, 6 or half past)

-To what number is the short hand pointing? (Yes, between 4 and 5, (past 4))

-What time is shown on the clock face? (Yes, half past 4)

-What time will it be in one hour from  half past 4?

1 hour = 60 minutes, count forward 60 minutes in 5 minute intervals from half past four.

-How many turns must the long hand make to be one hour from half past four? (Yes, one full turn.)

-What time will it be on the clock face in one hour from half past four? (Yes, half past 5)

 

Do the same for one hour before half past four.

-What time will it be on the clock one hour before half past 4?

1 hour =60 minutes, count back 60 minutes in 5 minute intervals (Yes, half past 3)

-Do the same with times, that are one hour earlier and later than a given time i.e half past 6, half past 11, half past 12, half past 7 etc.

-Plenty of practice is required using the handmade clock.

                     second hand on a watch/clock.

Ball: Throw and catch- count how many good throws

      while counting to 60.

 

Clock (Revision from second) 

·   Explain to your child that there are two hands on the clock, the long (big) hand and the short hand.

The long (big) hand tells/indicates the minutes The short hand names the hour.

When the long hand points to 12, it tells the hour (o’clock). So, if the short hand is at 8 and the big hand is pointing to 12, it is 8 o’clock.

Do this with all the numbers.

Have your child do this with all the numbers.

·          Show a half hourly time i.e half past 5

Again explain to your child that there are two hands on the clock. When the long (big) hand points to 6, it tells/indicates the half hour (half past). So, if the short (small) hand is halfway between 5 and 6 and the big hand is pointing to 6, it is half past 5. The short hand is gone past 5. 

Do this with all the numbers.

Ask your child to do this with all the numbers.

 

On page 92 children revise work done in second class on reading the time in one hour, half hour and quarter-hour intervals. They are also required to rename hours as minutes. On page 93 the children are introduced to reading the time in five minute intervals on the analogue clock. Page 94 extends the reading of time in five minute intervals on the analogue clock. On page 95 children are introduced to reading the time in five minute intervals on the digital clock. Page 96 has real life problems based on the reading the time in five minute intervals.

  • Use clock to reinforce when the minute hand is point to a number it is an interval of 5. In unison count by 5s as you move the minute hand around the clock. Then randomly point the minute hand to 4 different numbers.  Ask pupil to answer which minute it represents (ie, 5=25, 8=40, 11=55, and 2 =10).  Explain to students that the lines between each number signify a single minute, so that if the minute hand was one line past the 1 to tell the time we would have to realize that the 1=5 minutes and add 1 more minute to it so that it would be 2:06.  Demonstrate 1-2 more times with larger numbers (ie, minute hand on 3 past 8, 8=40 +3 = 43 minutes).

 

  • Point out to pupil that there is always only 4 lines between each number! Then ask how many minutes passed between the 3 and the 6, and so forth. Once the students understand that there are 4 quarters on a clock face, move on to following activity. 

  •  Then have pupil point the hour hand to the 3 and the minute hand to the 2. What time does the clock show? 3:20 Have students move the minute hands of their clocks 3 minutes past the 6. If a student has trouble ask them to count the minutes by fives as the hands pass each number until they get to 30. Once everyone has the minute and hour hand in the correct position, ask the following questions:

  • What time is it now? 3:33

  • How much time has passed? 13 minute

  • How did you figure out how much time had past

Reading the time on a digital clock.

Let pupil create a digital clock that they can manipulate/draw, children can draw numbers on one side of copy and draw the clock on the other side. Hold up an analogue clock face showing a specific time eg quarter past 8. Ask child to show the time (8:15) on the digital clock. Do this with various times. The children are only required to read 12 hour digital times in third class. Ie 8:15 rather than 08:15.  However most children will recognise 08:15 from their own watches.
