Senior Infants Room 7

Working from Home Resources

Dear Parents and pupils,

I hope you are all safe and well.

I’m sure lots of you are enjoying having a break from school work but some of you may want to get back into a routine. Thirty or forty minutes of school work each day would be great with around half of that time spent on reading (15-20 minutes).

I have seen great work on ixl with lots of you logging in throughout the week. Keep up the great work! Below are some guidelines to help guide which topics are covered.

I would like to add that these suggestions are optional, please do not feel under pressure to complete all of these activities.
