News Flash! News Flash! Date for your diary!
This year, we will be hosting the annual Bookfair in the Community Centre. The bookfair will arrive on Monday the 18th of November and stay until Friday the 22nd . Have a sneak peak at the wide range of books available this year and keep in mind that this is an ideal opportunity to get some Christmas gifts sorted! Thank you to our wonderful parent volunteer Rita for running this event! We thank you also in advance for your support, as the school receives 40% of the total money spent back, in commission vouchers. Spread the word and see you there!!!
Here is the first set of Jolly phonics sounds the Junior Infants will be working on over the next couple of weeks. Games such as ‘I spy’ , being a ‘sound detective’ while listening to a story, sound tennis, tracing letters in sugar, sand, shaving foam using Peter pointer finger (writing hand)etc are all fun ways to reinforce the sounds at home. Have lots of fun! If you have any questions regarding the literacy programme, please feel free to pop in to me.
