Helping your child in First and Second Class

  • Read with your child and draw notice to reading in the environment.
  • Trips to the Library.
  • Practice Irish sentences or phrases with your child.
  • Watch Tg4 – Irish programmes and cartoons.
  • Help your child to break numbers into tens using counting materials – lollipop sticks, bottle tops.
  • Start to have fun estimating – how many steps is it to the shops? Investigate if the estimates were good ones.
  • Play games with rules and team strategies.
