Week 2 JR

20th-24th April

Hello boys and girls!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter with your families. If you or your parents have questions or would like to get in touch, our home learning email address is nurneyhomelearning@gmail.com. If you would like to send some photos of any of your work or photos of things you have been doing with your family, your parents can send them to this email too.

These are 3 activities I would like you to try this week.

English Writing – An Adventure with Aladdin

If you could go anywhere in the world with Aladdin, where would you go? Use your imagination – it can be somewhere real or a place you make up. Write about what you would see, hear, smell, taste and touch. Click on template to print.

Infants you can use the writing frame below. Juniors, a few words is good. Seniors, try to make a longer sentence. Remember your full stop at the end.

1st and 2nd class, you can use the words in the writing frame and give more detail. Think about how you can make your writing more interesting by adding adjectives (describing words like enormous, dazzling, crunchy,…)

Maths – Number

Infants – 5 Little Monkeys. Get 5 teddies ready on your bed or the couch. Listen to the story of the 5 Little Monkeys and act out the story with your teddies. Then listen to the song and sing along.

Juniors, practice writing number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Seniors, write down sums to show what numbers make 5. You can write them out like this:

1st and 2nd class, try out Hit the Button on Topmarks. Click on Number Bonds and try all the Up to 20 box. If you find them too difficult, try the Up to 10 box instead. If you need a harder challenge, try up to 100.

Aistear (pronounced Ash-ter….learning through play) – Theme: Family Restaurant

Do you have a favourite restaurant that you are missing at the moment? It’s time to bring it to your house! Set the table and ask your family to dress up for the dinner of a lifetime! Thanks to online teacherteacher for the idea and free template. You can copy it onto a page or print it off and fill in. Click on images to print.

Maybe your parents can tell you what’s for dinner and make a menu to include it and your families other favourite food. A template from Twinkl is below.

You could play restaurant with your brothers and sisters with imaginary food instead. Have you Playdoh? Could you make Playdoh food? Or you could draw the food and cut them out!

Have fun!
