Homework Note Week 11

Post date: 13-Nov-2017 09:05:36

Dear Parents,

Thank you for returning all the signed tests. This week is Science Week and we will be doing some science experiments in class. If your child asks for some unusual items that are needed. Please send those in if you can. We have a curriculum training day on Friday so there is no school.

I have set up a booking form for the Parent Teacher meetings on our class website. Please see the link on our class page on the left hand side. Hopefully that booking system will work and you will not be waiting around for too long on the day (Nov 23rd). There are some other slots available on other days that week. I hope there is a time slot to suit everyone.

This week we are learning both the “oo” sounds.

Aistear Theme: The Doctor

Grow in Love:There is usually an activity to be completed in it each week. We had Sister RoseMiriam visit the class the class last week. Many of the children had not seen a nun before.

Super Troopers:We are on Purple Week 2. There are some fun activities to try at home.

Word Wallets/Tools for school: Please ensure that your child has all the sounds/names/tools. I often give dojo points to the children who have all of theirs.

Word Wallet activities.

1. Jolly Phonics Ask the children to make a word or words using the sounds (green cards) they already have. This week we are working on words that contain the “oo” sound. There are two “oo sounds.

2. Short ‘oo’ as in good, wood, wool, soot, foot, crook & book

3. Long ‘oo’ as in zoo, moo, cool, pool, moon & loop

Sight Words: Match, say, make a sentence. Seniors are learning and 1st are revising tricky words 1.

We are preparing for our Science experiments and talking about the doctor. We are also starting practice for our Christmas concert - Prickly Hay.
