Have a look at some of our gorgeous sunset silhouettes 🙂
In fourth class, problem solving is a challenging area in maths. We have started to work on trickier problem solving sums in class and we will be doing a lot of work on them in class to improve our problem solving skills. I will start to send home some problem solving questions for homework too so that the girls are getting plenty of opportunity to practice them
There are also some good questions that you can do at home if you follow this link https://ie.ixl.com/math/class-4 and scroll down to mixed operations. Start at F1 and work down through the questions. They get harder as you work your way towards F9
The more practice we do, the better we will get at them 🙂
Hope you all enjoyed the lovely mother’s day cups and cards the girls made last week 🙂
We were studying various types of rocks and soils in fourth class. We had to sort and group the rocks and samples of soil and then compare and contrast them, focusing on certain criteria.
We looked at different samples of soil from areas around Dublin. In our experiment, we added the same amount of water to each soil type and observed how each reacted.
We also had to look at the properties of various rocks in our groups and share our findings with the class.
Lastly, we explored the influence of soils and rocks on animal and plant life in our environment 🙂
We had great fun building 3-D shapes from craft sticks. Take a look at some of our work 🙂
Please listen and practise these songs everyday so that we know the words off by heart.
Recently we started reading our second novel, ‘Born to Run’ by Michael Morpurgo.
Murpurgo is a fantastic author! This book is a little different as the main character is a dog. We are following the adventures of Best Mate.
Some of the roles we play when reading novels are;
Word Wizard– find interesting or new words in the text
Artful Artist– visually depict anything about the story that engaged you.
Clever Connector– connect the text to your own lives, books, movies etc.
Summariser– write and share a short overview of what you have read.
We will be reading this novel for homework over the next few weeks. The girls have been advised to read with an adult. The reading can be shared, with both student and adult taking turns of reading. Discuss the plot with your daughter, predict what happens next, use new and interesting vocabulary together in daily conversations.
Táimid an-ghnóthach i seomra a seacht, ag canadh amhráin agus ag damhsa do Lá Glas agus don Chéilí. Tá na cáilíní ag déanamh iarracht a chuid Gaeilge a úsáid i rith an lae. Déan cleachtadh ar na phrásaí atá ar an Class Blogs.
Inné bhíomar ag foghlaim faoi Mháirt na hInide agus d’itheamar pancóga blasta. Beidhimid ag déanamh seanfhocail agus ag tarraingt postaer chun na seanfhocail a mhíniú.
Rinneamar hataí freisin inniu. Féach ar ár hataí an-fhaiseanta!
Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sí!
