Junior Infants: 2nd June 2020

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 and as Monday is a Bank Holiday we have not assigned any work so enjoy the long weekend! We have also reduced the volume of work this week as we hope all the boys and girls can get outside and enjoy the fine weather that is forecast to come our way. We would appreciate some feedback on this decision by e-mail if you can. 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 – 2D Shapes

This week we are revising our 2D shapes that we learned in school – circle, square, rectangle, and triangle.
When revising, be sure to remember not just the shape name but also how many sides and corners they have!
Can you remember how many sides a circle has? That’s right! Just one curved side!

Shape Monsters

Using some paper, get an adult to help you draw some 2D shapes such as a square, rectangle, circle or triangle. Colour it in your favourite colour. On a separate piece of paper, draw some arms, legs, eyes and teeth. Stick these on to your monster and make it look as goofy or as scary as you like. Here are some ideas.

Shape Hunt

With the help of an adult, draw out a grid like below. Go around your house, or even better, go outside and draw what you can see e.g. draw a plate in the circle box or draw a radiator in the rectangle box.

Colour By Shape

Guess the Shape – “Am I a…?”

Use post-it notes or just regular paper and some tape. Get an adult to draw a shape on the post-it note (you must not look!) and put it on your forehead. You have to ask questions such as “Do I have 4 equal sides?” to try and figure out what shape you are!
