Coming up …

This week we are working on the /ou/ blend. /ou/ as in ‘shout’ or ‘mouth’. I have sent home new orange sound mats so you can practise at home as well.

We are also working on the story of 9 and have started a new story, The Little Red Hen.

I will also be sending home sight words this week. We have already practised these in school but they should continue to be practised as part of homework.

All for now.

Cake Sale · Coming Up · English · Jolly Phonics · Maths

This week

We have been working on the /oo/ digraph. It makes two different sounds depending on the word. Think of /oo/ as in ‘balloon’ and /oo/ as in ‘cook’.

We have also been discussing time in Maths. We begin with the seasons, days of the week, day time, night time etc. We will look at the clock later in the year.

Finally, we had a great day today at the cake sale!

Thank you to Mairéad for the photos!

Welcome Back!

It was lovely to see all the happy faces back to school on Monday. The children had lots of exciting news and Santa must have been very good this year!

We are working on the story of 7 this week – experimenting with all the different ways to make 7.

Our story is The Lion and the Mouse. The message, one good turn deserves another, is a positive one.

We are also getting our supermarket set up in the Aistear corner from next week.

All for now!
