Junior Infants: 25th May

Dear parents,
We hope you and your children enjoyed last week’s activities. We have put together a new set of work for the coming week. As always, please just do what is manageable for your household and your child. If you have any questions about the work, please do not hesitate to contact us by email – juniorinfantwork@scoil-bhride.com
 
We are so pleased with the huge amount of work that is being done at home during this time. We completely understand how stressful it is but from what we have seen from the work that has been sent in, you and your child are doing a fantastic job!! 
 
Please let the children know we really miss them and we are thinking of them a lot.
 
Kind regards,
Junior Infants teachers.

Maths- Counting

Here are some ideas for counting at home:

Count forwards 0-10

Count backwards 0-10

Start at a random number and get your child to count forwards to 10

Start at a random number and get your child to count backwards to zero.

Pick a random number and ask your child what comes before and after it.

Literacy- Tricky Words

This week, we ask if you would please focus on these tricky words:

Here are some games you can choose from to play with your child to aid with the revision of the tricky words:

  • Tricky Words Scavenger Hunt– Write the above tricky words on a sheet of paper. You could then write a few of these words on smaller pieces of paper and hide them in a room in the house. Call out one of the words from your sheet of paper. Your child can go and search for it. When your child finds the word they colour the matching word on your sheet.
  • Tricky Words Bingo– You could print the bingo page. If you do not have a printer you can draw 6 boxes on a page and write a word in each box. Call out a word for your child. They need to find the word on the page and colour it in.

Art- Rainbow Scavenger Hunt

You will need:

A red item/s

An orange item/s

A yellow item/s

A green item/s

A blue item/s

A purple item/s

A pink item/s

What to do:

Find something in your house or garden that is the same colour as a rainbow colour.

You must find at least one red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple item.

Once you have found at least one item of each colour, arrange the items to look like a real rainbow.

Using more than one item of each colour will make your rainbow look even bigger.

P.E.

You can continue to do PE with Joe Wicks if you like. It is every morning, Monday-Friday at 9.00am.

Keep practising playing with a ball outside e.g. kicking/bouncing/ throwing etc.

Phonics- Revision of letter “p”

After watching the ‘Story of P’ video, look at the pictures on the worksheet below and say them out loud. Only colour the pictures that start with the p-p-p sound.

Try some of these games!

Mystery Bag

Place three objects within a bag—like a ball, bug and button for the letter “b”. Have your child name each item, and guess the “mystery letter” that unites all of the objects. We suggest you use the letters we have been revising: s/a/t/i/p, but change this game up as you wish!

Say two words

This game requires zero materials and can be played outside in the sunshine! When you say two words that begin with the same sound e.g please/pony, they should stand up as fast as they can, but stay seated if the words do not begin with the same sound e.g astronaut/tiger. We like to change it up by incorporating a dance move or another action like jumping or spinning instead of just standing or sitting!
