Mr. J. O’ Brien (5th) School Closure Work.

Monday 30th March – Friday 3rd April

5th class work for next week.


Try your best with all work. I hope you’re all staying safe and continue to do so over the next while. The work below is a general guideline; please adapt it to suit your child. Every family circumstance is different so do what is best for you and your child.

All written work can be done in your copy or on sheets that you may have at home. Remember to have margin, heading and date. If you don’t have the right copy for a subject you can use any copy you have.

The books that are marked with ** can be accessed on the CJ Fallon web page. Visit and click ‘Student Resources’, then filter to the title of the book you require, making sure ‘Online Books’ is selected in the ‘Resources’ section. Only takes a minute and very easy to work J (use top right corner to jump to a selected page when book is open)

Pg.108 Qs 3 +4

Pg. 109 Qs 1-4

Pg. 110 Qs 1-3

*Qs on pg.108-110 we need to find the price of one when looking for value or looking for the price of multiple products so always use the unitary method(Green boxes will help)

* Qs pg 111 when dealing with fractions remember we divide by the bottom and multiply by the top when finding a fraction of something eg: Find ¾ of 20 divide 4 into 20 and multiply answer by 3 (unitary Method).

and we divide by the top and multiply by the bottom when we have the fraction and are trying to find the whole number eg : ¾ = 21 find the whole number we divide 3 into 21 and multiply answer by 4 (unitary method).
