Each of these challenge cards are asking you questions based on different types of answers. If you struggle with forming full sentences when answering reading comprehensions, you can use the ‘Reading Comprehension Skills Challenge Cards with Sentence Starters.’ This will give you a start to your answers. The answers are below each set of questions so you can check if you are correct. Don’t forget to use CUPS to self-correct all your written work.

  • Learn off by heart. Write 3 times in your copy.


Liom-with me

Leat-with you

Leis-with him

Léi-with her

Translate these sentences:

Watch tutorials 101, 102 and 103 for each of the pages. Please complete pages 153-156 Busy At Maths 4th Class Online book. This may be quite difficult but you will hopefully remember a few things from last year so give it your best effort and don’t feel too much pressure to get everything right.

Art: Outdoor Art: over the month of June you can try out one or two of the different outdoor art options on the Padlet link. If you have access to a printer you can print it out and colour in each activity you do. Enjoy!

Drama: Continue learning your lines for the musical. Try one of these fun scripts with anyone at home! http://www.teachingheart.net/readerstheater.htm


Go Noodle: parents/guardians can sign up for Go Noodle for free here. It has a range of workout videos, yoga, mindfulness and lots more. It is very important that we stay as active as we can during these strange times. Hopefully this link helps with that! https://www.gonoodle.com/good-energy-at-home-kids-games-and-videos/

Well done to all of you for all the work you are doing at home. You should be very proud of yourselves!

Stay safe and well,

Ms Kane.
