A goodbye message from Mrs Hanvey and Mrs Henry
LEARNING AT HOME
I hope everyone is enjoying their learning pack and you are all learning new things. Below are some examples of practical activities/ games that will reinforce the Literacy and Numeracy concepts in the pack in a fun and relaxed way. Have a go and feel free to alter each activity to suit your home and your child. Continue to check this page for new activities.
I hope everyone is keeping up with their reading. I strongly recommend setting aside time daily to read with your child. This may be a picture story book from their book shelf or an online book. Also, tune in to Libraries Online on Youtube for daily stories.
I have included a link to access Collins Big Cat readers in every level to suit P1-P3. We use many of these in school, but there is a wide selection we do not have in school. All books have resource sheets to use as Reading Activities to help with comprehension skills.
