Homework! Oh, homework!
You’re giving me fits.

I’d rather take baths
with a man-eating shark,
or wrestle a lion
alone in the dark,
eat spinach and liver,
pet ten porcupines,
than tackle the homework,
my teacher assigns.

Homework! Oh, homework!
you’re last on my list,
I simple can’t see
why you even exist,
if you just disappeared
it would tickle me pink.
Homework! Oh, homework!
I hate you! You stink!

English:  

Reading: My Read At Home Book 1 (you should have this in your yellow folders) or go to https://my.cjfallon.ie/preview/student 

Read the stories and answer the questions orally (you do not need to write the answers, this reading is just for enjoyment). You may need to ask someone to help you or to listen to your reading. 

Monday: p.45 Baking 

Tuesday: p. 46 Dolphins 

Wednesday: p.47 Mad Molly’s Magic Shop  

Thursday: p.48 Planets 

Friday: p. 49 Go to Sleep Baby 

Which story was your favourite and why? Draw a picture of your favourite story. 

 Do the following activities: 

  • Design your own monster, give her/ him a name.  
  • What colour is she/ he?  
  • Is she/ he scary? How?  
  • If you were a monster, what would you do? 

Phonics: 

Revise the following groups of letter sounds and do some or all of the following activities. It can be a good idea to write the letters on a piece of paper or card and cut them out. Some of you may have a little bag of letters in your folders: 

Group 1: s, a , t, i, p, n 

Group 2:  c, k (make the same sound), e, h, r, m, d 

Monday and Tuesday: Group 1 

  • See how many different 3-letter words you can make ex: sat 
  • Can you write them down? 
  • Ask an adult to call out some words and make them with your letters. 
  • Ask an adult to call out some words and write them down without looking at your letters.  
  • Can you make a 4 -letter word? 

Wednesday and Thursday: Groups 1 and 2. 

  • Can you make any new 3- letter words? Ex. Mat 
  • Can you write them down? 
  • Can you make any 4-letter words? Ex: tick  
  • Write them down.  
  • Ask an adult to call out some words using sounds from the 2 groups and make them with your letters. 
  • Ask an adult to call out some 4 letter words and write them down without looking at your letters. 

Friday: 

  • What sentences can you make with your words? Ex. I saw a cat on a mat 
  • Ask an adult to call some sentences out to you and write them down. Draw a picture to go with the sentence. 
  • Challenge- look at all the words you made this week. Set a timer and write down all the ones you can remember in 5/4/3 minutes! 

 

Maths: If somebody in your house has time to play, play one of these quick games per day! 

Monday: “Blast Off”- play in pairs, or threes/ fours etc. Decide which number will be your “Blast Off” number. Ex: 12. Start counting: Person A says 1, B says 2 etc. The person that says 12 gets to “Blast Off” and win the game. Change the Blast Off number to any number within 30/ 40/50. You can change the starting point too, you don’t always have to start at 1. 

Tuesday: Number Tennis– Needs 2 players. Hold an imaginary bat in your hand. Player One bats” a number towards player 2. Ex: Player no.1 says “18”. Player no. 2 says “19” and so on. You can change the number you start on. If you miss a number, you’re out! 

Wednesday: What comes next (after)? What comes beforeRound 1: Player A says a number and Player B says the number after that: Ex: A says 7, B says 8. You can have ten turns to be “on” (decide the starting number) before swapping. The game should be fast. Change it so that Player B must say the number that comes before. Ex: 7-6. 

Thursday: Counting backwards. Start at any number between 10-30 and count backwards. Look at a numberline/ Hundred Square. Did you miss any numbers? What ones did you miss? 

Friday: Guess my number. A game for 2 or more players. A number line or Hundred Square could be useful. One person chooses a number between 1 and 10/20/30, decide on the range before you begin. It’s a good idea for that person to write the number down but keep it hidden. The other player must guess the number by asking questions. Ex: Is your number bigger than 10? Is it smaller than 20? Is it between 15 and 20? You are not allowed to ask about the number directly (Ex: Is it 12? ) until you’ve asked at least 5 questions.
