I can't believe we have made it to our last week of the school year! The children have come such a long way since their first day in Junior Infants! What a year it has been!
It has been my joy to teach such a cheerful, enthusiastic and loving class. I have missed them so much! Thank you all for your ongoing support and positivity throughout the school year and particularly when the school closed. You have been a pleasure to work with both in person and digitally!
I am attaching the Junior Infant book return checklist to this post. Please return the items on the list and collect your child's belongings and end of year report during the specified times this week.
Wishing you all a safe, happy and relaxing summer break!
See you all soon.
This week we are bringing out our inner pirates by learning the letter x and continuing our work on money. I have added some pirate activities to go along with this work but please don't feel any pressure to get through everything. Our main focus for this week is maths. I am really enjoying communicating with you all on Seesaw, it is great to see so many pictures and activities coming through every day. I am amazed with the work you are all doing at home, we are nearly there! You should be so proud of getting this far! Please keep the work coming on Seesaw :)
Using the pirate code below, I found out that my pirate name is Eye-Patch Rattlebones! What is your pirate name?
We are also thinking about things we treasure this week. Here are my three for today:
1. My family (None of them are pirates!)
2. Sunny days.
3. All of the boys and girls in Junior Infants!
Louis, Michael D. Higgins and I are missing you all lots!
Have a great week,
I hope you really enjoyed last week's virtual school tour to Disneyland! I enjoyed it so much because I received the most fabulous videos and pictures and even voice notes of your writing, reading, weather charts, obstacle courses, Disney dance challenges in the sitting room, singing Disney songs, Mickey Mouse drawings, Disney playtime and toys! I also received some pictures and videos of your fabulous kites!
It's lovely to hear your voices and see how you are getting on. Please keep them coming!! If you need help with SeeSaw, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week we are putting a big focus on our Maths curriculum. Money is one of the most challenging areas in the Junior Infant curriculum. We has started it at school in March. This week we are focusing on 1c - 4c and how to make amounts using 1c and 2c coins. I have made two lesson videos which explain the process to the children and include some activities too. I hope you will find them useful!
Most importantly, I hope you are all happy, safe and healthy!
Looking forward to hearing from you this week,
I hope you are all enjoying your virtual school tour to Disneyland! I have received some fabulous videos and pictures on SeeSaw, please keep in touch regularly. If you are having any difficulty setting up SeeSaw, please get in touch email@example.com. It is a quick and easy way to upload your children's work and allows the children to have regular feedback and communication from their teacher.

Have a lovely day,
I hope you all enjoyed the fabulous weather over the weekend!
This Friday, the children would have been going on their first school tour! We have planned some activities based on the idea of a 'virtual school tour' for this week. A different week for the children to enjoy after all of their hard work over the past number of weeks (and the parents/guardians!). We will also be adding some sport's activities for the children to complete in place of our annual sport's evening.
A reminder to check your emails for your child's SeeSaw login details. Thank you to those who have sent on work to me already. I hope it will be an easy way for us to communicate and for me to give feedback on the children's work!
Have a great week everyone,
Thank you so much boys and girls for sending on your fabulous verses, they are amazing. I hope you enjoy your video! Well done :)
Thanks so much to Conall's Mammy for bringing our attention to this live kite-making activity that is being hosted on CreativeIrl Facebook page tomorrow. The event is called 'Meet me in the clouds! Kite making workshop with Rebecca Marsden'. What a lovely activity for this week when we are thinking and reading about kites! Thank you Michelle :)
Hi everyone, we are learning all about kite's this week. Here is a guided reading lesson on our next reader 'Emma's Kite'. We will be reading this story next week. Enjoy!
Thank you to everyone who sent on pictures and videos for our class video. They are all absolutely fabulous and it made me so happy to see your smiling faces and to hear your lovely voices! I will upload the video very soon so keep an eye out for it!
I hope you are all safe and well. I am good. This weekend, I cut my dad's hair with the clippers, it was very funny. I gave him a funny hairstyle at first but I fixed it afterwards. Have any of you had haircuts at home? My hair is very long now, I am looking forward to when the hairdressers opens again!
You are all doing an amazing job at home. As always, we take it one day at a time and we do our best. Some days are better than others and that's OK.
Please keep me updated on the children's work and progress. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week everyone. Miss you lots and lots!
