Homework note week 30

Post date: 09-May-2016 22:17:12

Dear Parents,

Thank you for sending in the vessels. We are using those to learn about capacity using the words holds more/holds less. Please sign and return the tricky word test in the homework folder. The children also completed a dictation test on the back. I will continue to give 5 dojo points each week for the healthy eater, writer and reader of the week in our class. These prizes are for effort. Literacy Lift Off continues for the next few weeks. I have a cap here from our 1916 celebrations. It’s a Failsworth one. It was possibly mixed up with a Donegal one. Could you check if you have that at home.


PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays. We are hurling.

Our School Tour this year will be to Stonehall Farm on Friday June 17th.

Literacy Lift Off is an intervention that gives children lots of opportunities to read books at their own level of competency and gradually lift the complexity of what they can do in both reading and writing. There is a link on our class website with more information.

Word Wallet activities.

Jolly Phonics – We are learning about words with an “o” with the silent or magic e at the end.

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

hope, robe, code, note, rose, home, alone, stone

Tricky Word activities. – Children will continue learning the Tricky Words. We are learning the yellow List 7. See the Tricky words prezi on our class website. We use this in class to practice.

Our Aistear theme on travel will be finishing soon. Please ask the children what country did they learn about and get them to tell you what they know about that country.


Mr. Gleeson.
