Homework Note Week 20

Post date: 28-Jan-2018 21:42:53

Dear Parents,

We will visit St Brigid’s Well on this Thursday and the Lime Tree Theatre on Friday to see Back to the 80’s. Please send in the permission slips and cost if you have not done so already.

I have some paper towels for drying hands in the classroom. Please ensure that they are following the word wallet activities each night. We have blue tacked in all the green sounds now. Last week your child came up with ____ ue words.

A reminder about Grandparents Day on Feb 13th (Pancake Tuesday) – If there are any grandparents out there who would come in and talk to the class about the differences between long ago and today that would be great. Bring along some items or photos to add to the interest. I have had no responses yet.

Aistear Theme: Animals

Grow in Love: There is usually an activity to be completed in it each week.

Super Troopers:We are on Lime Week 4. 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.

2. Make sure to use the correct “er” sound and not the “e” and “r”
