Hello everyone, I hope you are all well and keeping safe.

This week I have put up work for four days Monday- Thursday as we were going to be off on the Friday before the June bank holiday. It was great to hear from so many people again this week and thank you to those who send on some of the fantastic work completed again last week. I will put up some more of the fabulous work I received this week over the weekend.

Like last week I have put up a grid on the blog with the work for each day and then here I have added the logins to the individual sites with some extra details too.

Maths

Over the few days your child will be learning strategies about the addition of a two-digit number to a two-digit number and regrouping. This is a new and very important topic and an important concept for the children to grasp.

The children now have their maths book so we will be doing two pages a day this week on addition.

There will be more maths this week to cover than other subjects so please spend time this week working through the examples on each page with the children to ensure they grasp the concept of regrouping fully.

Monday:

P. 142 introduces the children to the formal algorithm for addition of a two- digit number to a two-digit number. This is something the children have previously taught in class and so should be revision for them. The addition house concept is introduced here to help the children add, keeping the units in the unit house and the tens in the ten house.


Remind the children: Step 1- Add the units

Step 2- Add the tens.


p.143 In the first exercise on this page the children are required to regroup the tens and an amount of units between 10 and 19 into an equivalent form. Then they must regroup the tens and an amount of units between 10 and 29 into equivalent form. This page lays the foundation for addition with regrouping.

If you did not collect the books. Go to the CJ Fallon Website (Free login) Click Primary: First Class: Maths: Busy at Maths: Online Book (Click in the eye icon) Go to page 142+ p.143

Tuesday:

Today we will begin regrouping. These next two pages teaches the adding of a one-digit number to a two-digit number with regrouping.

Again remind the children

Step 1: Add the units. So in the example in the book you have 12 units.

Step 2: You have to regroup the 12 units. The 2 remains in the unit house and you regroup the 10 over to the ten house.

P.145 This page follows on from the previous page. Again the children are adding a one-digit number to a two-digit number with regrouping.

Go to the CJ Fallon Website (Free login) Click Primary: First Class: Maths: Busy at Maths: Online Book (Click in the eye icon) Go to page 144 & 145 if you do not have the book.

Wednesday:

P. 146: Aims to consolidate what the children learned yesterday on the previous two pages. It is important to get the children to estimate first before solving a problem. At the bottom of this page the children are asked to determine if the must regroup or not by ticking the appropriate box prior to completing the sums. Remind the children you only have to regroup if the unit’s side is larger than 9 units.

P147. This page the children often find very difficult. This page outlies a mental strategy for adding two-two digit numbers together. It involves leaving the first number alone and breaking the second two-digit number into tens and units and adding the tens to the first number and then adding the units to the answer.

Go to the CJ Fallon Website (Free login) as above.

Thursday:

p.148. This page introduces the children to the formal algorithm for addition of a two-digit number to a two-digit number with regrouping. As always in the example the red cubes are used for representing the tens and the green cubes are used for representing the units.

p.149: This page asks the children to determine if they must regroup or not by ticking the appropriate box prior to carrying out the sum. For the word problems make sure to get the children to write out the sum properly in the white space beside the problem.

Also the following is a great site with lots of games and activities for practicing your addition and subtraction sums and lots of other key maths concepts if you have time and access to the internet.

I will attach a sheet to the blog of games and activities you can practice at home to reinforce all the content covered this week.

SESE

This week we will look at Birds. You will observe, identify and explore a variety of common Irish birds in local habitats and environments.


Monday:

Read p. 90- Today you will look at and name 5 common Irish Birds and look at the nest and eggs of each of these birds.

This week spend five or ten minutes each day looking out a window and see if you can identify any of these birds in your garden? how other birds did you see in? Write down the names of any birds you see and how many.

Activity. If you have access to a printer, you could print off p. 90 and colour the birds the correct colours.

Alternatively, you could take a page a draw a picture of each of the birds and their nest and label them.

I have also added a link in this document that might be useful this week

1. It is a little checklist with pictures of some of the birds you might identify this week.

Tuesday:

Parts of a bird. I have put up a picture with a word box for you to draw and label all the different parts of the bird. See the link at the top of the document.


Wednesday:

Today I would like you to do a little fact file on one of your favourite birds. It can be any bird it doesn’t have to be an Irish bird. You could write some facts you already know or you could look up the bird on the internet.

The sheets I have linked for doing this are only a suggestion. You could simply draw the bird in your copy and write a few sentences or you can print off one of these sheets I have linked.

Links Above:

1. Bird Fact file: I have a picture of a sheet that you could fill in added above in a link. If the bird, you would like to write about is in this document you could print off just that page.

2. Bird Watch Sheet: I have added another sample of a ‘Bird Watch’ sheet- you could use this sheet to write about your bird either.

Art

This week you could create a bird art. You could simply draw a picture of your favourite bird, do a collage as I know lots of people told me they loved doing the summer collage. You could get a paper plate and make a bird’s nest and put your bird in the nest. You could make a tree if you have brown paper at home and put the bird and its nest in the tree. Maybe you have your own idea of what you could do. Have fun!
