Homework 15th of May

The homework this week has a new addition to it! The children will continue on with their reading of 'The Picnic', using the reading guide with the dates for each night.
The new tricky word is:
There is also a new purple copybook in their folders, with 'dictation copy' written on the front. On the inside cover is a little guide about what dictation is and how the children should be completing this for homework, as well as 3 words for each night this week.
With dictation, an adult should say each of the three words for the child and the child can then write the word in their copybook. The children should write each word on a separate line and you can repeat the word a few times for them before or as they are writing it.
If they are finding it a bit challenging, don't worry, it will take a bit of time to get used to it and it really will benefit their phonological awareness and handwriting!
If you have any questions about this, please just send me an email.
Thanks :)

'a, a, ants on my arm!'

Today we learned all about the sound...

Our rhyme for this sound goes like this - 'Curve around, up like a helicopter, bump, back down and kick.' We made sure to check our classroom for things beginning with the 'a' sound so you could have a look around and see if you can spot anything beginning with 'a' outside school!

At Home in Aistear!

The children were learning all about the 'Home' in Aistear over the last two weeks. They talked about themselves, their families, their homes and met our new Aistear friend, Beebot! The Beebot is a 'coding robot' that can be used in a huge amount of ways to teach many topics and already the children are having great fun with it, while learning a vast amount of vocabulary linked to each topic. 
They also built their dream home, made family members and houses out of playdoh, painted their 'hidden names' and played with small houses and toys from the home.
Take a look at what some of the children got up to 'At Home'!
