A Thuismitheoirí,

I would like to share some information that will help your child for the year ahead:

Labels – Please label your child’s jumpers and coats to avoid them getting lost and time being wasted on discovering the owner.

Shoes - Only Velcro shoes please. Shoes with laces are constantly opening ,get dirty and are dangerous as children trip on them.

Junior faber castell pencils – These are the best pencils for early grip development. They do not break easily so there is less time wasted sharpening pencils.

Homework – It is best done after school and with no distractions e.g television. Go through what needs to be done with your child and encourage good work habits e.g neat work and making sure all the work is completed written work and colouring.

Letter and number formation – Please ensure your child has a good pencil grip and forms his /her letters and numbers properly e.g for the letter ‘h’ you must start at top and go down.

Oral language – Help expand your child’s language skills by discussing and describing pictures and stories at story time e.g ‘What is happening in the picture?, What do you think will happen next? Rhymes and songs are also great for developing language skills . Encourage your child to use their Gaeilge by asking them to share their poems and songs they have learned and asking them ‘what is the Irish for dog?’ etc.

I hope this proves useful, if you have any queries during the year ahead let me know.

Le meas,

Múinteoir Gráinne.
