Homework Note Week 17

posted 11 Jan 2016, 00:38 by Vincent Gleeson

Dear Parents,

Thank you for signing and returning the Phonics, Word and Maths tests from before Christmas. We will have Gymnastics every Thursday for the next 5 weeks. Please send in the €4 to cover the cost of the Gymnastics coach if you have not already done so. There are some photos of the Gymnastics from last week on the class website. We are moving to a new Aistear theme of The Building Site. If you have any play tools or clothing that we could use on our building site please send them in. Please do not buy anything new. We will return these in a few weeks.

Word Wallet activities.

Jolly Phonics – We are learning the alternative ways to spell some of the sounds /y/ (sunny), (why) /ea/, /igh/, /ow/ (snow), /ew/, /ir/, /ur/, /au/, /aw/, /al/, /oy/, /ow/ (cow)

This week we are working on the “i” sound but spelt as /y/.

Please get the children to make up the following words. 2/3 per night

why, cry, spy, July, my, by, fry, try, sky, dry and reply

Tricky Word activities. – Children will continue revising the Tricky Words. We are revising List 3 now. See the Tricky words prezi on our class website. We use this in class to practice.

1.     Match the coloured card to its place on the white card. (Place the “they” on top of the white “they”)

2.    Say the word.

3.    Ask the children for a sentence with at least 2 tricky word in it. (Who saw that they were lost.)

 

We are learning the names and purposes of various tools this week. This will tie in with our new Aistear theme. 1St Class are starting subtraction tables. There are 2 more online Studyladder activities to complete if possible.

Thanks

Mr. Gleeson.
