Hello everyone and welcome back! We are delighted to be back and you will see from these pictures that the children are too. Everyone has settled back in great and are working well. We are improving in our writing and we have been writing our news, we have been doing the days of the week, months of the year, rhyming words, our tricky words. We have been doing Aistear in our pods and this seems to be working great. In Maths we have been writing our numbers, some are still writing them backwards, can they keep practising these at home.
We are giving out homework on Monday’s- could we please ask that you send in one wipeable wallet a4 size for their homework as soon as please. Also we will be sending a maths book home as part of their homework so could you put a clear cover on it too.
We have been supplying whiteboard markers (thin tipped) for your child but can we ask that they have spare ones when they run out. You can buy them in Matthew’s of Clones or Liptons too.
Your child has all the rest of his/her essentials supplied by the school this year.
September- Maths Work
In Senior Infants we have been learning about money.
We are able to recognise 20c, 10c, 5c, 2c and 1c.
We can add up money by counting the coins. We know that it is easier to start counting with the biggest number and go from there.
