Happy Monday – Junior Infants

Good morning everyone. We hope you all had a lovely weekend. Looking forward to hearing all about it when we return to school remember to use the blank copybook to record your news from the weekend.

The weather was fabulous and it was so nice to see the sun shining. We hope you are finding our suggestions of work useful but remember that’s all we are doing at this challenging time is trying to suggest work that is interesting but also that the children are able to revise concepts / topics already done in class. With this in mind today you could focus on revising the numbers 1-5 with your child. You could also focus on handwriting with them.

Twinkl have made all their wonderful resources available to parents for one month free of charge -> www.twinkl.ie

A huge range of worksheets and resources can be accessed via Twinkl so please go ahead and download some of the nice activities available.

If you don’t have access to a printer Sprint Educational Supplies are downloading these packs for parents if you would like more information here is their contact number.  (074) 912 6022   

Also one of our teachers (Maggie) has provided access to a wide range of resources located in one place which may be of great use during the closure. Thanks for sharing Maggie!

To keep active during these times and as part of your PE and it will also be a great way to start your day you could check out the following link https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html – You don’t need any equipment, just tune to the YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.

We know trying to keep a routine is difficult and we really appreciate the support you’re providing your child at this time. We are mindful that everyone’s situation is different so just do what you can. Really looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

Nakita, Máiread and Verity.
