Homework for Ms Keyes' Senior infants

Dear Parents/Guardians,


Over the course of the school closure we would ask that the  children in Senior Infants complete the following, to the best of their ability. Focus on neat handwriting & colouring.


  • Jolly Phonics Workbook 5 & 6
  • Planet Maths Number Practice (Except for p.35 & 36 – money)
  • All Write Now Practice copy ( 1 page per day)


  • Continue reading "Magic in the Sky"; focus on learning new words, questioning & comprehension.


We would also suggest lots of  'free writing'. This involves drawing a picture & writing a sentence or a few words based on the picture. The spelling does not need to be correct. Children use 'free writing' to improve upon their phonics and to use familiar words.


Thanking You,

S. Keyes
