Sixth Class Video Medley.

We want each one of you to make your own video, we will then join them together so it looks like the one sequence.

In the video, maybe you could wear your school shirt, tied in a knot at your waist over your ordinary clothes.

Wear your tie as a headband or loose around your neck if you want.

For the video:

Someone must throw your homework journal or a copy to you, then you must catch it and throw it up into the air.

Stop the video when the copy or journal is high up in the air. Don't worry it it is longer. We can edit it afterwards.

 

 

We have attached an example of the video to this email for you.

 

 

Don't worry if you can't open the link just make your own video anyway. You can email your video to the address below and we will put them together for your farewell video for Twitter.

Area of a Circle (repeated)

 

 

 

 

The rule is     Area =   π   x radius 2  

 

 

 

This means     Area   = π x radius x radius

 

 

We now see that       Area = 3·14   x radius x radius

 

 

 

The correct way to write this rule using symbols is below.

Area = pi r2

 

Example Find the area of a circle when the radius is 5cm.

 

 

 

Area =  

3·14 x 5 2

3·14 x 5 x 5

3·14 x 25 = 78·5 cm2

Area of a Circle.

 

This is a video from yesterday going through the steps .

 

https://youtu.be/ZyOhRgnFmIY

 

You can stop the video at 2:58.

 

The rule is          Area =   π   x radius 2  

This means       Area   = π x radius x radius

 

We can say that     Area   = 3·14 x radius x radius

 

.

 

Example Find the area of a circle when the radius is 5cm.

 

Area   

Area = (3.14 x radius x radius)

 

3·14 x 5 2

 

3·14 x 5 x 5

3·14 x 25 = 78·5 cm2

 

These sums look complicated but they are easy if you follow the steps.

 

Find the area of a circle in this online activity.

 

 

Use your calculator always, use the full stop as a decimal point otherwise they will mark it wrong.

Area of a circle.

 

 

Optional activity introduction

 

 

Get a piece of wool or string and measure the circumference (the outside) of a plate or a circular object.

Then measure the diameter of the object.

 

Using your calculator divide the circumference by the diameter. Round your answer to 2 decimal places.

 

 

If you have done this properly your answer will be very close to 3·14. This should be true for any circular shape.

Do this for 2 or 3 different circular objects.

 

 

 

Maths    3·14   = π (pi)

 

 

3·14 has a special name in Maths, it is called π

 

 

This symbol is called pi and it is a Greek letter, remember your Greek alphabet. Can you still sing the Greek alphabet?

 

 

https://youtu.be/ZUrZHF_WBeI

 

We use 3·14 as π (pi) in primary school. In secondary school they use the fraction for 3·14 which is 22/7.

 

 

We use π in the rule to find the area of a circle.

 

 

Area of a circle will be part of Tuesday’s work.

 

 

This is a video going through the steps that we will use on Tuesday.

This week we are going to revise our Persuasive Genre.

 

 

This genre is used when you want to debate a topic or idea, or if you want to make a valid argument about something.

 

 

 

Some countries have reopened their schools now. I have heard lots of adults on the radio and social media giving their opinion on reopening schools but now I want to find out what you, the pupils think.

 

 

 

Today you are going to discuss the idea that 6th class should be able to return to school for one week at the end of June.

 

 

 

Imagine if you could write a letter to the Taoiseach or the HSE or the Chief Medical Officer or the editor of a newspaper giving them the reasons why or why not 6th class should return to school for one week at the end of June.

 

 

 

You choose your own side of the discussion. Discuss one side only.

See if you can make the pie chart yourself.

 

Question 1 (a) pg 159. Find the answers for the table only.

 

Find the fraction and the degrees.

 

 

Step 1. Find the fraction.

 

 

Make a fraction from each number of votes, by putting the number over 80 (total). Cancel down to find lowest terms.

 

 

Or you can do it this way:

 

 

 

If you divide the vote amount by 80, you will get the decimal and you can change the decimal to a fraction. Use your calculator if you want.

 

 

 

Step 2 Find the degree.

 

 

 

Find the fraction of 360 to find the degrees.

 

 

Eg     ½ of 360 = 180 degrees.

Then look at the degrees for each hair colour.

 

Follow the steps in the video yourself so that you can work out the other fractions.

 

Step 1 Put the degrees for each hair colour over /360 and find the fraction.

Step 2   Use the fraction to find what fraction of 36 children have each hair colour.

Follow the grid and finish Question 1 in your copy.

 

 

Question 2.

 

Use the degrees that are there, put each one over 360 degrees, then cancel down to find the fraction of the pie chart.

 

Then use each fraction to find what the answer to the fraction of 78 children

 

Example

45/360   = 1/8     Then 1/8 of 78 = 12.5

Then you can find how many liked each thing about their birthdays.

 

Follow the steps in the grid in Question 2 in your copy.

 

What fraction of 78 liked presents?

What fraction of 78 liked cake?

What fraction of 78 liked a party?

 

 

How many like presents?

Q 1 – Q 11.

Q 12 - 14  Info for Q 12 -14 Remember when we were learning about Time, we said that the time changes one hour for every 15 degrees.

We go forward an hour when we go the East and we subtract an hour when we go West.

France is one hour ahead of us, so that’s 15 degrees East.

NY is 5 hours behind us so that’s 5 x 15 degrees = 75 degrees.

Procedure for Leaf Experiment

1. Start by taking going outdoors and collecting various leaves.

2. Snip off the bottom of each leaf stem. Then place each leaf in a glass filled about a third of the way with water. You can use celery for this experiment as well.

3. Add red food colouring to the water. (We made our water a very dark shade of red to increase our chances of seeing changes in the leaves but any colour will work)

4. Observe the leaves closely. (You can use a magnifying glass if you have one.) Record your observations of how they look on Day 1 of the experiment.

5. Observe them for the next two days. Be sure to record your observations in your copy.

What’s Going On?

You should notice the red colour move slowly through the leaf.

Here’s a close-up of one leaf over three days.

The coloured water was moving through the xylem tubes of the leaf. The xylem tubes of plants transport water and minerals up from the roots through the entire plant. (Their thick walls also provide support for the plant.)

Want to go even further?   Use leaves to make leaf prints.   Make some leaf rubbings to compare the shapes and patterns of leaves.    Do a similar experiment using celery

Maths

Master Your Maths Wed pg 59

Today we are learning to change foreign currency to euro. This means how much euro we get when we change foreign money back to the euro. This will be good to use when you can go on holidays again.

Rule 2:

To change another currency Euro to you always divide the money by the exchange rate.

Change £49.92   sterling to euro @ an exchange rate of £0.78

Then you divide

£49.92 ÷ 0.78 = €64

These exchange rates are in your book.

  Q1.   €1 =     US $1.25   (USA)

Change $50 , $100,   $500, to euro  

Divide the dollar amount by the exchange rate.

  Q2.   €1 =   £0.78 (exchange rate in your book)

Change £46.80, £34.32, £43.68 to euro. Divide the sterling by the exchange rate.

FYI the rate of exchange from Euro to sterling today is €0.90. So if we changed £46.80 to Euro today using this exchange rate we would get €52

This week we are learning about foreign currency. This means how much money we get when we change our euro to foreign money. Use your calculator for these sums.

Do question 1 in your copy. Write out the names of the currencies and countries at the top of page 143.

Rule 1:

To change Euro to another currency you always multiply the money by the exchange rate. The exchange rates are in the box at the top right corner of the page. These exchange rates are not the same as the rates today but we will use them in the sums anyway.

Change €20 to £ sterling @ an exchange rate of £0.78

To do this sum you multiply €20 x £0.78 =£15.60. This means we would get £15.60 if we changed €20 to sterling using this exchange rate.

These exchange rates are in your book.

€1 =       US $1.25   (USA)

€1 =     AUD $1.45(Australia)

€1 =     £0.78

Use your calculator .

1. Change € 34 to each currency.

2. Change €87 to each currency.

3. Change €90 to each currency.

This week we had had an assignment called 'Cool Country.' We had to choose a country and discover some facts about it. Then we had to create a Powerpoint about the country.

 

We really enjoyed learning how to create our Powerpoints. We saved them onto a USB key and presented them to our class on the interactive touch screen in our classroom. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We designed our own cups of hot chocolate. We would have loved to have some hot chocolate after cycling class on Friday.

Narrative Genre:

The first person to walk on the moon. by: Abbie S.

June 20th 1969:                                                                                     

My name is Neil Armstrong, and this is my story.

I have been training in N.A.S.A for many years now and I have finally been picked by my professor to go on a journey to space. I am hoping to be the first ever person to land on the moon.

The day that I get to fly into space in the Apollo 11 rocket is here at last. I was filled with excitement but I was also nervous that something could go wrong. I told myself that I have to stay positive, and have trust in my training.

I was getting ready to take off with the rest of the crew, when the captain yelled “5.4.3.2.1” and then all of a sudden blast off. We were flying through the air so fast I couldn’t even see out the window. Approximately 8 ½ minutes later we had left the orbit and then into space. We finally slowed down and I looked out the window to see the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. Space! The sight was so amazing, I was bursting with excitement. I couldn’t wait to step out and be the first ever person to walk on the moon.

We had stopped and we were told to get out of the space ship. I put on my helmet and attached a cable which joined me to the rocket. Finally, I grabbed the flag. I stepped onto the moon and I was filled with pride. The moon looked like an off white football with holes. It was stunning I had never seen anything like it before. I planted the flag, and my friend took a photo to have proof of this amazing moment.

I walked forward filled with joy and ready to explore, as I announced

“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. J

 

 

Genre: Narrative. Space Astronaut Missing!

 

By Fiona

Somewhere in space, on Thursday the 21st of June, 1984, Jake Landel and his space shuttle disappeared. N.A.S.A sent Oliver Johnson on the case to search and recover the missing space shuttle.

Johnson’s spaceship was launched at 1300 hours on the Saturday after Landel disappeared. It was a nerve-racking launch because the ship needed some last minute repairs before it was certified ready to launch. Finally Johnson was launched high in the sky into space.

When his space shuttle docked at the landing area, Oliver began his search for Jake. He was a bit confused because he didn’t exactly know where to start. He tied a cable onto his suit that was connected to the spaceship. He started off towards the last place Jake Landel was detected to be, Saturn.

It was a long distance to Saturn and Oliver realised he connected himself to the wrong cable. He needed a longer cable. He had to try to float back to the ship. Luckily he wasn’t that far away from the ship so he could easily see it.

While he was attaching the longer cable to himself, he heard something coming from outside the shuttle. Something was knocking on the exterior of the ship. Instantly, Oliver grabbed a knife from the kitchen. Then he opened the door slowly and first he saw a hand, and then an arm, and a leg, a shoe, another leg, arm and shoe and finally he opened the door fully and it was Jake Landel!!!!!!!:)

A Trip to Space. By Beth W                

Hi, my name is Buzz Aldrin and I am an astronaut. 50 years ago I was part of Apollo 11. Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and I set off into space.

We had all been training for years and years in advance. One week before the final departure the nerves started kicking in because that’s when you start thinking of everything that could possibly go wrong, go horribly wrong.

It was the big day, the day that I set off into space. We had to stick to a very tight schedule, it involved being at NASA space station for 4:30am. So off I went to NASA. When I arrived Neil and Michael were already there. Take off was at 7:00am so we were straight to work!

6:30am came and we were starting to board the spacecraft. This is also when family and friends started to arrive. We were all strapped in and everything was ready, next thing I heard,

‘10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4,’ When four came I was terrified !

‘3, 2, 1 and blast off!

The first day on board went by and we were all so happy with how smoothly the take off had gone. We were tired from our long day so we decided to go to sleep. During the night I felt a shake and it seemed to be getting stronger, so I went to wake Neil and Michael. The shake was getting bigger and bigger but also louder and louder. During our training we had prepared for moonquakes so we had to put our years of training into action. We let out the parachute and started floating down towards Earth. After about three hours of terror and fear our parachute touched down on safe land. I had never been so happy to see my family!            

 

 

 

Genre: Narrative         Space Journey: Sarah B.

“3, 2, 1” I heard from the N.A.S.A team as we immediately lifted off the earth surface. My co-workers were all excited but as for me I was terrified. Possibly being the first people on the moon was very scary. Not knowing what to expect I just sat back to experience the ride to the Milky Way.

I fell asleep and when I woke up we were 7 hours up in the air but we still hadn’t arrived at our destination. I was hoping what happened next would just be impossible but unfortunately it wasn’t. One of our tank engines gave in and it all went downhill from there. We were speeding through the huge, fluffy, white clouds only to find out that we were heading straight towards the crystal, blue waters of the Pacific Ocean off the island of Fiji.

We landed with a huge splash. We ejected from the space shuttle and began to swim towards safety. Freezing cold we continued to swim as fast as we could. We saw a harbour off the coast of the beach in Fiji.

Two men helped us up on top of a dock and called an ambulance. We were rushed to the nearest hospital where we were given medical care, until the doctors said we were allowed to return to America. People were happy we were safe but disappointed that we didn’t get to space. We were safe and that’s good. The endJ

                   Genre: Narrative: A Trip to Space.     By Sarah A

2030: News just came in from space. There is an unusual planet found in space never seen before. The astronauts were going on a research mission to look for new discoveries that they might find there.

They were going past Jupiter and suddenly they noticed an unusual planet never seen before. It wasn’t a normal planet it was more like a cube shape. It had light effects coming off it. They landed on it and they realised it was a planet you could live on. When they landed there they say the most beautiful creatures and animals.

Immediately they contacted NASA to tell them the news. This new planet was then named Jurister. It was the biggest planet ever discovered.

The team went back to their space ship but realised the space ship suddenly developed a problem. They were very worried as they thought that the space ship wasn’t working properly. They went on a short trip to check that it was functioning again.

The crew then went to return to visit the planet again but it seemed as if it had disappeared and they were very curious about where it had gone.

After a while, the crew contacted NASA and asked

‘Would you be able to track the planet we named Jurister?’.

NASA tracked it and they found out that it had moved far away. They haven’t found out how out why but it was the strangest thing they ever have seen. From that day nobody has ever seen Jurister again.    

 

 

 

 

 

Genre: Narrative   08/10/2019   By Ugne      

Dear Readers,

I hope you are looking forward to my recount of being in space, especially if anyone wants to be an astronaut. I wish your dream will come true.

On 7th of October 1999 I set off to a journey to the moon. I was getting for this day for years and it finally came. Everybody was cheering while I was walking to the space shuttle.

So I walked in, sat down on my seat and I still heard everybody cheer. Then they started to do a countdown. 5,4,3,2,1.

I flew up and a few hours later I was at the moon. I landed carefully trying to not damage the rocket and took a deep breath. As I started walking on the moon I saw 2 aliens on the moon.. the two aliens were speaking a different language that I could not understand. The aliens turned around and stared at me for a while they came over and started to talk to me in their own language.

I was very nervous that the aliens would do something to me because they looked very suspicious. After awhile the aliens kept on staring at me and whispering to each other thinking that I understand their language. I feel very scared and even more nervous.

Then they started to come closer to me and then they suddenly jumped up on me and started to attack me. They caught me by the legs and dragged me and I suddenly got dizzy and blacked out. When I woke up I was in a pitch black room. I was so scared and I heard very strange noises. The aliens came into the room and said something to me but I couldn’t understand them. They turned out to be Russian alien spies who captured me. I was lucky because I got a chance to escape, so I ran away before they did anything else to me. I dashed back to my space ship and blasted off back to earth. It was a relief to land safely on Earth again.

 

 

Our first project this year was our Personal Timeline Project. We worked very hard on our timelines and we are very pleased with them.
