Literacy Lift Off

Senior Infants/ 1st Class please:
www.oxfordowl.co.uk website

Register on the site and access the oxford reading tree ebooks.

Senior Infants: I would suggest starting with 1+ level. Ask your child questions about the book when they are reading fluently.
Some books have little interactive activities also.
Keep a list of books they read.

1st Class: We are using Engage books at school so follow this guide as an example;

Engage level 2 = Oxford Reading Tree 1+
Engage level 4 = Begin at ORT level 2
Engage level 8 = Begin at ORT level 5

Keep a list of books they read.

Remember the children need to be able to read 90% of the words to achieve success and to increase their confidence and fluency.

MR. MURPHY’S
Class Blog

Dia Dhaoibh go léir a pháistí. Bail ó Dhia ar an obair.

Hello everyone and God bless the work. Hope you are all keeping safe and well in these unprecedented times. Try your best with the list of work I have given you. Put a date on your work each day. Keep it neat and tidy. Be kind to your parents and thank them for helping you with your work. I hope you are enjoying watching Home School Hub on television. I would encourage you to write a few sentences each day in your home school copy about what you have learned from this programme. Write a few sentences about the news updates regarding the coronavirus. This home school copy will be a historical document for you to show your children and maybe grandchildren in years to come. Perhaps you might like to put a cover on this copy and even decorate it. I will look forward to reading this copy when I meet with you again.

I am sure that you learned a lot about Medieval Towns of Europe in your history along with Life in Ireland in the Eighteenth Century. As you read about the Penal laws you may like to make comparisons in your mind between those times and the challenging times experienced in Ireland now. We can learn a lot from History!!! Learning your multiplication tables is most important. Invite your parents to give you a tables quiz every day.

I want you to enjoy your Easter holidays. I have a few ideas for you to try doing over the fortnight.

  • Look at page 91 of your Geography book and design and make A Catapult Shooter.
  • Build the tallest construction you can from materials that you have at home example lego, jenga blocks, plastic cups, playing cards etc. Take a photo if possible, print and stick in the home school copy.
  • Do a chore for your Mom/Dad with their permission. Wash the car, water the flowers, play with your siblings, read a younger sibling a story, tidy your bedroom, tidy the garden shed.
  • Practice your football and hurling skills.
    All you need is a ball and a wall. Avoid the windows!
    Solo 20 left foot

    Fist pass 20 left hand
    20 right hand
    Punt kick 20 left foot

Enjoy and keep safe.

Dia Dhaoibh go léir a pháistí. Bail ó Dhia ar an obair.

Hello everyone and God bless the work. Hope you are all keeping safe and well in these unprecedented times. Try your best with the list of work I have given you. Put a date on your work each day. Keep it neat and tidy. Be kind to your parents and thank them for helping you with your work. I hope you are enjoying watching Home School Hub on television. I would encourage you to write a few sentences each day in your home school copy about what you have learned from this programme. Write a few sentences about the news updates regarding the coronavirus. This home school copy will be a historical document for you to show your children and maybe grandchildren in years to come. Perhaps you might like to put a cover on this copy and even decorate it. I will look forward to reading this copy when I meet with you again.

I am sure that you learned a lot about Medieval Towns of Europe in your history along with Life in Ireland in the Eighteenth Century. As you read about the Penal laws you may like to make comparisons in your mind between those times and the challenging times experienced in Ireland now. We can learn a lot from History!!! Learning your multiplication tables is most important. Invite your parents to give you a tables quiz every day.

I want you to enjoy your Easter holidays. I have a few ideas for you to try doing over the fortnight.

  • Look at page 91 of your Geography book and design and make A Catapult Shooter.
  • Build the tallest construction you can from materials that you have at home example lego, jenga blocks, plastic cups, playing cards etc. Take a photo if possible, print and stick in the home school copy.
  • Do a chore for your Mom/Dad with their permission. Wash the car, water the flowers, play with your siblings, read a younger sibling a story, tidy your bedroom, tidy the garden shed.
  • Practice your football and hurling skills.
    All you need is a ball and a wall. Avoid the windows!
    Solo 20 left foot
    20 right foot
    Pick up 20 left foot
    20 right foot
    Fist pass 20 left hand
    20 right hand
    Punt kick 20 left foot
    20 right foot.

Enjoy and keep safe.
