Hi to all the boys and girls in Junior Infants.
We know that you are probably all so excited that we will be getting our summer holidays from school on Friday! You have all been working so hard at home and trying your best .We are very proud of each and every one of you!
We have some fun activities for you for this week that you can try at home.
If you would like to do some writing and colouring, pick some page in one of your workbooks that you have not yet done and you can do that.
Fun Reading Ideas That You Can Try
- Read a book outside
- Read a book to someone on the phone
- Read a book while sitting under a tree
- Read a book in your pyjamas
- Read a book to your teddy / doll.
- Read your favourite book again.
Draw a Summer Picture
Draw and colour in pictures of all the wonderful things that summer brings e.g. sun shining in the sky, beautiful colourful flowers blooming in the garden, playing at the beach, eating ice cream , playing in the paddling pool, bees and butterflies flying around, playing in the park …etc.
- Lie down on the grass. Feel the grass between your toes. Look up at the clouds and can you see any cloud shapes?
- Lie on your back on the floor/grass/ carpet and place a teddy on your tummy. Breathe in and out slowly. Look at how your teddy rises and falls when you breathe.
- Draw a picture of all the things that make you happy.
This is a little prayer that you might like to say at home with your family.
