18th March – 20th March work.


Hi Fourth Class 🙂 I hope everyone is keeping well. We need to try and stay as active and busy as we can! Please email me if you have any questions. The other fourth class can email Mrs.McGuinness this week if they have any questions. I know not all children have access to a laptop. If this is the case, please do as much as you can. Many of the worksheets I have attached do not necessarily need to be printed (if you do not have a printer). One could look at the worksheet on the laptop and write out the answers in a copy/on paper.

We can all do lots of reading, free writing and exercise! Here is a suggested timetable for this week:

Wed 18th March

Time – 5 minute intervals


If you do not have access to the internet simply test your child using a watch or ask them to draw out certain times e.g. 5 past 3.


Go over your Aimsire Chaite (past tense) irregular verbs. There are only 11 irregular verbs. They do not follow any rules so we just have to learn them.

We have learned these already and have had Friday tests on them. Remember if you learn them well now, you will have them forever! 🙂


Bhí mé – I was

Rug mé – I caught

Chonaic mé – I saw

Fuair mé – I got

Dúirt mé – I said

Chuaigh mé – I went

Rinne mé – I did

D’ith mé – I ate

Thug mé – I gave

Tháinig mé – I came

Chuala mé – I heard


For the month of March we are studying explanation writing. E.g. The lifecycle of a frog or how a volcano is formed. Choose a topic of your choice and upload this onto google classroom using google docs. ( Mrs.McGuinness’s class can email this to her). If you do not have access to a laptop or internet you can write this instead.

D.E.A.R time for at least 20 mins.



For the month of March we are studying the topic of ‘Myths and Legends.’ Pick a myth or legend of your choice e.g. The children of Lir. Upload this onto google classroom using google slides.

(Mrs.McGuinness class can email this to her). If you do not have access to a laptop or internet you can write this instead or make a poster project.
