Post date: 04-Mar-2018 23:35:37

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone is safe after the snow disruption last week. We have finished Literacy Lift Off and the children have moved seats in the class. A reminder on Hurling – please bring equipment on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you don’t have the equipment I have plenty here in school.

Word Wallet activities.

We have covered all 42 sounds now. Please revise these if there are any sounds that your child does not know. We will now learn the alternative ways to spell some of the sounds.

1. This week we are learning words that have the “ea” sound that sounds like /ee/

2. eat, tea, sea (Mon) pea, meat, real (Tues) leap, weak, beach (Weds)

steal, year, beat (Thurs)

3. See if they can make other words with a “ea” but with the /ee/ sound.

4. Click into http://www.ictgames.com/phonemePatterns/index.html or on the ICT GAMES link on the right side of our class webpage to see list of words containing of all these sounds we have been learning.
