Thank you to all who have brought back their money for photos. The deadline to return money was today so please do not return any more photo money. We are unable to accept it.
This week our sound is /z/. We flap our arms pretending to be buzzing bees looking for pollen and say zzzzz.
In maths we have just started work on money. In junior infants we identify the 1c, 2c and 5c. We also solve simple problems using money.
Our Aistear has changed to the flower shop which is the ideal setting to play with money as the children take on the roles of buyer and seller in the dramatic play area.
We will shortly be sending home a note about the upcoming school tour and money for it will be collected in stages. We are also looking for parents to volunteer to accompany the three classes on our tour. This year we are very limited on space on the bus so we would especially appeal for any parent who would be willing to drive or take another parent along. If you feel you are in a position to volunteer to come on the bus or to drive, let me know and names will be chosen at random if we are over subscribed.
Lastly, we are having our Maths PIP meeting next Wednesday 17th May at 1.05. Please return your attendance slip if you have not already done so. At the meeting we will be showing you a simple maths game which we have been playing in class. You will bring the game home and continue to play it at home.
All for now, phew!
