Homework Note Week 25

Post date: 07-Mar-2016 00:37:46

Dear Parents,

As part of our activities around Easter 1916 in the school our plan for our class is that we will dress as a class from 1916. We will have another dress rehearsal on this Thursday. We have made some collars that the children can wear on the day. We have made some changes to the classroom so ask your child what a class was like in 1916. Thank you again for supporting the Lenten activities in the school. They will finish this week. We plan to have hurling training on Mondays and Wednesdays going forward. So PE days are now Mondays and Wednesdays. If you have a helmet or suitable size hurley (no bigger than 24”) please send them in. We have some hurleys and helmets if not. I will be doing some tests with the children over the next few days. The sight words I am testing (List 3 and 4) are on the back of this sheet.

Word Wallet activities.

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

Another alternative spellings for the /or/ sound - spelt as “al” and “all”.

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

Tricky Word activities. – Children will continue learning the Tricky Words. We are learning the blue List 5. See the Tricky words prezi on our class website. We use this in class to practice.

Our Aistear theme is the old classroom. If you have any items that would help us play please send them in. We won’t have any homework next week so I hope everyone has a great St. Patricks Day and a Happy Easter but we will hope to see you for our Flag Raising activities on March 15th.
