Ms. Gordon’s Junior Infants Class 2020

Ms. Gordon’s Junior Infant Class have settled in so well to their new school.

I would like to say a big well done to all of the boys and girls in my class for doing so well during their first week in St. Joseph’s Primary School 🙂

We look forward to showing you some of the fun activities we get up to during the school year.

 

Ms. Gordon’s Junior Infant Work 2nd – 5th June

Hello everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine over the weekend. Please find below work for the next four days. As we are now into June, as a school we have decided we will now just be focusing on English and Maths. I have left a sample timetable as usual if you wish to follow it. If you have any questions or would like to send me work you can contact me on the following email address; cgordonstjosephs@gmail.com

Take Care,
Ms. Gordon

English

Sounds

  • Our last Jolly Phonic sound ‘ar‘ – sing the song, say the sound, do the action. Draw pictures of words containing the ‘ar’ sound e.g. car, bar, jar, star, shark, etc. If capable, write the words under the pictures
  • Continue to revise all sounds completed to date

Word Boxes /Reading

  • Read Word Box 9A and 10A.  Be careful of the digraph (two letter sound) in some of the words
  • Continue to read books regularly to your child at home

Tricky Words

  • Last two tricky words ‘what’ and ‘when‘- Write out these tricky words three times. Put them into a sentence orally
  • Revise all tricky words

Handwriting

  • Ready to Write A1: Letters x, z, e pages 62, 63, 64 (for those who collected books)

  • “Letter Formation Workbook” pages 25, 27, 6 (for those missing the letters) www.twinkl.ie/offer : Under “new to Twinkl” create an account and make sure to enter the offer code IRLTWINKLHELPS )

    2. I went up the hill.
    3. The bus went fast.
    4. The man has a dog.
  • Continue to practise rhyming words by completing one rhyming worksheet each day (Log onto www.cleverlearner.com. In the “reading and writing” section, click on “rhyme: match and trace” and print one worksheet per day. If you are unable to print these, complete orally instead).
  • This weeks rhyming worksheets; Match the rhyme: (ug), (ap), (ut), (ig) – as seen below

Maths

  • Introducing Money: 1c, 2c, 5c coins. Give the children a selection of 1c, 2c and 5c coins and get them to sort them into groups. If you don’t have coins at home use this link to get the coin template below https://my.cjfallon.ie/preview/index/8169/364

  • Give children 2/3 coins and get them to figure out how much money they have. The children can often find this concept difficult as they count the number of coins they have rather than the value of each coin
  • Please complete the following pages: Busy at Maths book pages 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120
