Work for Ms. Kennedys Class 20th – 24th April

Hello Everybody

I hope you are all keeping well and had a nice Easter break. Here is the learning plan for this coming week (April 20th -24th) and there are some more activities that you can do at home.

Read the story Each, peach, pear plum with your child. It is based on Nursery Rhymes and word that have the same ending. Here is the link to the story:  Your child can draw the characters they have met in the story and cut them out. They can then put the pictures in order of appearance. Remind your child to say First, then, next and ends with to help them to sequence the story. This can be done over a few days at home.

Continue to read whatever school readers you brought home with you and other books you have at home. Here is a link to Here is a link to

Revise sounds oi, ue, er, ar in sounds notebook. Here is a link to you can skip to the appropriate songs and listen on this link.

Word Families: words with oi, ue, er, ar. Use to work on these with your child. If you have letters at home, they can build these word families or else write them on a whiteboard. Here is a link to click on learn to read, the word families will appear. Here are some worksheets you can use

Your child can tell you their news to put in their news copy. This can be something you did at home or saw while out and about. You write the sentence on a whiteboard or a piece of card and then your child can copy it independently. Remind them to use two frogging legs and a lily pad to steady their pencil and ensue correct letter formation. They can then draw their picture above. If anybody would like to send me a picture of their work via my email, I can correct and give feedback to your child.

Please find link below to some pictures that can be used to write a simple sentence. Eg; the cat is in the box. Give your child a few minutes to look at the picture and decide what words they may need for their sentence. Help your child to write these down and then construct a simple sentence about their picture. This can be done in the news copy. Alternatively, you can use storybooks where your child can pick their favourite page and write a simple sentence based on it.

They can also continue with their handwriting book, one page per day.

There are good letter formation videos on or you can use

You can go to www.edco/bua where there’s a trial. Login is trial and password is trial. This week we will be looking at Sa Bhaile Ceacht 1 -5. You can play these lessons for your child and they can learn the words, phrases and songs.  If you click on the link below it will bring you to the lesson. Please see link below for the words to the songs and rhymes in the lessons.

Continue to revise numbers 1-10 and keep going with the mini maths book.
Topic is length: Use cubes or lego to make towers of different lengths. Use the words, short, long, medium, shorter, longer, shortest, longest. Here is a link to length games you can use. Here is another link to

You can also use these cubes of lego to measure different things in the house. They can measure the side of a table, door, window, a book. This can be any item with a straight edge. Your child can guess how many cubes they think it will take to measure different things and then measure it. If they write down their estimate first and then write what they got and compare the two.

They can then complete pages in their Planet Maths textbook
