Junior Infants Activities
Week 23rd March – 27th March 2020
Hope everyone is well and keeping active at home. It is a stressful time but we will try our best to keep in routine. Keep up the good work and here are a few activities for this week.


Making sets of items from 0-5.
Try and make as many sets as you can.
Practise writing numbers 0-5 and remember our little rhyme for each number.
Big maths book pg93- look at each set and count how many items are in the set. Then write the number in the box. Colour in the sets nice and neatly.

Folens are kindly offering their online resources to parents. Search http://www.folensonline.ie
register as a teacher using ‘Prim20’ as your roll number and you will be able to access Planet maths/ Abair liom A/ SESE resources. Planet Maths have some amazing resources and games that the kids really enjoy.


Revise your letter sounds.
Keep blending Word Box words. Have a look at WB 4 this week.
Have a look over your tricky words (some new ones coming soon).
Try and make tricky words multi-sensory- kids will love it. Writing them out in shaving foam/slime/rice/flour, spelling them with playdoh/pasta/magnetic letters etc. Hide them around the house and go on a tricky hunt, make a second copy and play find a pair.


Have a look at your handwriting book. Everyone is at different stages in this book so have a look back and make sure you are up to date and complete one more page in your best handwriting.
5-10 minutes of colouring everyday would also be great to practice our fine motor skills (pencil grip) and develop our concentration skills.


I hope everyone is practicing their Gaeilge phrases and teaching everyone at home some amazing Gaeilge. Junior Infants have received so many compliments on their Gaeilge  so we will try and keep it up.
Daily: Say the days of the week and weather as Gaeilge. An bhfuil sé…  ag cur baistí/ag cur sneachta/stoirmiúil/ grianmhar/ceomhar/te/fuar/fluich/tirim…
Take a look at your Abair Liom book pages 4-7.
Can you teach an adult as many words as you can as Gaeilge?

With your folens log in you will be able to access useful resources for Gaeilge. The topic we are revising this week is ‘Is mise’. It should appear first in the resources. The kids will be familiar with the resources and songs.
