Junior Infant Work Pack March 30th – April 3rd

This is a note for the children of Junior Infants from their teachers. 


“We all say hello and hope that you’re all being good for your mammies and daddies! We miss seeing you and hearing all your news. Looking forward to seeing you all soon. Keep up the great work at home!”

Miss O’Driscoll, Mrs O’Connor, Miss O’Sullivan, Miss Murray, Miss King and Miss Kavanagh


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please see below some more suggestions of work and activities to keep your children engaged with the curriculum at this time. Junior Infants learn best by constant repetition and revision. It may seem repetitive to you but this is how they consolidate and retain their learning.

As well as this academic work, it is just as important to let your children play and explore their environment. Encourage them to help out with daily activities/chores and to be imaginative and creative at this time. 


Throughout the week, you are welcome to email photos of creative writing/colouring pictures/children being active to room1@stconlethinfantschool.ie  

We will do our best to display some of your child’s work on our twitter page and school website. Please remember to include your child’s name and room number! 




Continue to revise letter formation for c, o, a, d and g.

Move on to letter formation for q and i. See the letter formation sheet below for the rhymes. (use markers, paint, trace letters, playdough or sand!)
