5th Class Work

18th-22nd May 2020

Hi 5th class,

I hope you’re all still doing well. Below is the work for this week.

All worksheets and power points are on this Padlet link: https://padlet.com/emmakaneteacher/o5friez0vfihsl35

You do not have to print anything off. Any sums or questions can be written into your copies.

Don’t forget to tune into the Home School Hub every day from (11am-12pm)! Let’s make use of all the great home-learning opportunities that are available to us!

As usual, you do not have to complete all activities on this sheet. Just try and get whatever you can done! My school e-mail is funfitnessqoa@gmail.com. Your parents/guardians can contact me using that e-mail address with any questions at all.

Friday 22nd May

S.P.H.E.-Goal Setting

Watch lesson on RTÉ Home School Hub.

Set yourself 3 goals to accomplish by the end of the year. As an example, you could learn how to make a dinner a week from the cook in the house!


  • English in Practice: 1 day per day. Continue with daily exercises. (5 days completed by Friday)
  • Spelling Workbook: Complete next spelling list and workbook pages for it. Write each word into 1 sentence.

4 extra spellings: smiled, fraction, melody, surprise. Write each word into sentences also.

  • Grammar topic: Idioms. See power point and worksheet on Padlet link.
  • Story: You have now planned your story and the characters in your story. I want you to structure your story this week. This is very important when reading a story as you want the beginning, middle and end to be clear. Please write what will happen in the story in the beginning, middle and the end. This is not writing the exact story. You are just telling yourself what you want the reader to read in the beginning, in the middle and in the end. Your story will only be 2-3 copy pages long. So remember to keep it short and simple. Sometimes we can include too many details that make sense to us but don’t make sense to the reader as there is too much to take in. Your reading comprehension for this week is ‘The Fable of the Two Doves’ and is an example of a short story to give you an example of structuring a beginning, middle and end.
  • Please complete one page of handwriting in your workbook each day.
  • If you are one of the children in the class who does not write in cursive (I have told you if you don’t) then I would like you to practice your handwriting by writing out the poem ‘Television’ on page 73 of your Better English book.
  • Complete reading comprehension 'The Fable of the Two Doves.'


  • New pronoun: ag-at (also used to indicate possession-e.g. Seán has a car-Tá carr ag Seán)
  • Learn off by heart. Write 3 times in your copy.

Ag-at (or possession)

Agam-at me

Agat-at you

Aige-at him

Aici-at her

Againn-at us

Agaibh-at you(pl)

Acu-at them

  • Power point ‘E-Leathanach 351’. 2 stories from the news on a power point. If you click the speaker you will hear me reading the stories and translating them. There are 3 questions for each story to answer. If you would like me to correct these, you can e-mail me your answers. You are all well able to answer the questions without me!


  • Topic: Long Division: As it has been a while since we did long division in class, and the feedback I have received is that we are struggling to remember the method we learned a few months ago, I have uploaded a power point where I talk you through step by step. It is on the Padlet link. There is a photograph of the sum at each step and you have to click play on the speaker symbol to hear me talk you through it. If you found the long division easy last week, you can practice it more using the worksheets on the Padlet link.
  • Try some of the long division word problems on the Padlet link. There are different levels as you scroll through the worksheet. You can decide how much of a challenge you want! The answers are also on the worksheet so you can correct your work and see how well you found that level.
  • Mental Maths: Complete 1 day per day (have next 5 days completed by Friday).
  • Tables: Keep practicing all your tables. Try and get quicker at answering your tables. Set yourself speed targets.
  • If you do different maths to the rest of the class, you are going to begin long division:

Follow this link: https://my.cjfallon.ie/dashboard/student-resources

Click Primary-> 4th class-> maths-> Busy at Maths-> Busy at Maths 4th Class

Watch tutorial 29. Please complete page 42 Busy At Maths 4th Class Online book.

When you are confident with these sums, look at the power point on long division on the Padlet link. Practice long division questions on the Padlet worksheet. If you find this too difficult, spend the week practicing the short division questions I uploaded on the Padlet link and when you are confident with those, you can try long division again.


  • History: Anne Frank: there are 3 reading comprehensions in the one document based on the life of Anne Frank. She was a young Jewish girl who hid from the Nazis during World War 2. This will give you an insight into the life of a Jewish child during World War 2. There are 3 levels. The first level you see is the least challenging to read and the third is the most challenging to read of the three. Use the 5 finger rule to decide which is the correct reading level for you and answer the questions. The answers are at the end of the questions so you can self-correct your work.
  • Geography: See RTÉ School Hub lesson.
  • Science: See images of butterflies and moths and birds that you can see at this time of year on the Padlet link. When you are on your walk or out in your garden, see if you can find any of them.

Art: Stop motion animation-see the RTÉ Hub activity on Wednesday for details. If this is not an option you can try shadow art! See the picture on the Padlet link as an example!

You can also follow Artzone’s weekly art classes here: https://www.artzone.ie/art-classes-dublin/artzone-live/ and on their Instagram page. Don Conroy does weekly drawing classes also. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1YV_Y6dQUk . All links must be accessed with a parent/guardian’s supervision.

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/

I hope you are all well and doing even a small amount of work each day. Please do not feel under pressure to complete all the activities on this sheet. If you can prioritise English, Irish and Maths, that would be more than enough! Everything else you manage to get done is a bonus!

Stay safe and well,

Ms Kane.
