Suggested Learning Programme
Hi guys, it’s hard being at home away from friends, I tried making new ones today but they didn’t seem to like me (check the video below for proof)! Check in here each day and I might have something uploaded for you to watch or see. Don’t forget to answer the questions on them!!
Sheep and Lambs.
1. Look at the two photos carefully and answer the following questions:
2. How many sheep in the first picture/ how many lambs?
3. How many sheep in the second picture/how many lambs?
4. Can you find the black lamb?
5. How many feet in the field? Count in 4's or 2's twice for each animal?
6. Can you spot any numbers on the lambs or sheep?
7. What is the highest/lowest number you can find?
8. Is there any purple dots on the sheep?
That means they have twins or triplets...can you find them close to her?

If your child needs books / reading materials we suggest:
1. readtheory.org When entering the site you will need to sign up. Enter a user name and a password (you don't need to enter a class code) and submit. An initial test once they log in establishes their standard.
Children can choose to write about whatever topic or idea they like. The following are a list of suggestions if children are struggling to come up with ideas themselves:
Try encourage your children to watch some programmes daily on Cúla4 - the TnaG channel www.cula4.com/en/ e.g. Cata Hata, Spongebob, Garfield, Clarence, Lurgan2k17.
If you do not have access to TnaG, use TnaG playback online. Search TnaG player, Genre, Young People.
If you wish you can download the documents below for some Irish reading/Comprehension activities. There is also an audio file to correspond which each page. Your child can listen to the short story while following it with their finger. After listening to the story, encourage your child to read it independently. The questions can be answered orally or written.
There are some examples of written activities shown in a separate file below.

Skip counting– please encourage your child to work on their skip counting. Children can jump/hop/skip/clap etc while practising counting in 2's, 3s, 4s, 5s, and 10s.
Websites such as Top Marks offer good interactive games which will reinforce their learning. I suggest the following:
1. Children may choose their own topic of interest if they wish, e.g. an animal/ famous person/ sports/ farming etc. They can research the topic and create a project/presentation on the topic - facts, drawings, paintings, pictures etc.
2. National Geographic Kids kids.nationalgeographic.com/ also offers games, quizzes, interactive activities and more for your child to engage with.
3. Twinkl www.twinkl.ie offers fantastic PowerPoints and activities on a range of different topics.
4. BBC Bitesize www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/levels/zbr9wmn offers a wide variety of topics and subjects for children to explore
Useful websites such as the following offer good movement break activities for children, and are good fun to use.
