Week 2: 23rd March – 27th March.

Hello to both fourth classes 🙂 I hope everyone is keeping well! I miss seeing you all very much. Ms.McGuinness and I were so impressed with all of the work that was sent to us – you are all wonderful 🙂

This week Ms.Brady’s class can send their work to her or to Ms.Atkin. Well done again everyone. Remember to keep busy and stay active. I am sure you are all helping your mums and dads out with lots of work at home!

Mon 23rd March

Any parent or student can access any of the CJ Fallon books online at the moment. I would ask you to do this as you can then access the children’s ‘Busy at maths’ book along with many other books the children use in school. It would be a fantastic resource for you to have at home. If anyone has any trouble with this, please email me and I can help you.

This week we will do chapter 22 – length.

Today I would like you to complete p.111 Busy at maths 4.



Go over your Aimsire laithreach (present tense) irregular verbs.

We have learned these already and have had Friday tests on them. Remember if you learn them well now, you will have them forever! These do not follow the rules. You learn these like spellings 🙂


Bím/ta mé – I am

Beirim – I catch

Feicim – I see

Faighim – I get

Deirim – I say

Téim  – I go

Déanaim – I do

Ithim – I eat

Tugaim – I give

Tagaim – I come

Cloisim – I hear




Well done everybody on your written task of explanation writing! I really enjoyed reading them all! Here were some of your topics – the lifecycle of a frog, the lifecycle of a butterfly, how bogs are formed, how beaches are formed, how a rainbow is formed and lots more!!

I want you to choose another topic to do another piece of explanation writing. Remember it is all factual information. We should not put in our own opinion. Ms.Brady’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.



Both classes learned all of the counties in Ireland at the beginning of the year. Today I want you to test yourself to see how well you remember them. Later in the week we will be learning the main towns of each county.



Also remember to look at our counties of Ireland poem to help you.
