Junior Infants & School Closure



Dear parents,

Enclosed are some activities that your child in Junior Infants can complete over the course of the school closure, if you wish. This is not mandatory but it might be helpful to keep your child engaged to some degree in material we have covered.

Suggested Activities

  1. Continue with homework booklet (1 page per day)
  2. Sounds in Action Book (1 page per day)
  3. Continue reading reader and flash cards every day
  4. Additional reading sheets are included
  5. Home Activities sheet (2/3 per day)


Your children have been working very hard and have made great progress to date, please do not worry as we will have plenty of time on our return to school to continue our learning.

Kind regards, and wishing you all good health.

Many thanks for your continued help and cooperation.

Mr Lennon       Ms Curley
