Keeping ourselves healthy has been the theme running throughout the whole week. We've been ensuring that we get rid of all the germs by washing our hands and making sure we put our tissues straight in the bin. We've talked about healthy food and how milk, fruit and vegetables are an important part of our diet. During lunchtimes we have been encouraging the children to independently use their knife and fork to cut their food. Any extra help at home with this will really help the children to develop their fine motor skills. The children have also been cutting vegetables to make a healthy soup.

We have been consolidating the concepts of more and less. The children were great at identifying which was more but which was less was a bit trickier. We've also looked at simple 2D shapes and talked about the similarities and the differences between the shapes.

We had our first guided reading session this week where the children worked really hard. These sessions will continue every Monday and the reading objectives for that week are in the school planners. We have continued to look at new sounds and we have now learnt 's, a, t, p, i, n, m, n, d, g, o, c and k.' Some of us have been blending those sounds together and saying the word.

We now have 20 parents registered on the Interactive Learning Diary. Please, if you haven't already, register and you will be able to have a look at some of the fantastic learning your child is doing at school.

The dates for the Iris Class workshops are as follows:-

  • Phonics- Friday 6th October 2.30-3.25
  • Reading- Friday 13th October 2.30-3.25
  • Mathematics- Friday 20th October 2.30-3.25

Please come to the main entrance and someone will show you where to go. Hope to see lots of you there.

Home Learning

Once the Induction Period has been completed and the children are in full time attendance they will each receive a booklet of home learning tasks and activities for them to complete on a weekly basis. The most important of which is to read to, and with, your child every day. In addition to this there is a poem to learn to say, sounds and words to recognise and read and a mathematical activity to complete. After Christmas, as the children become developmentally ready, they will each have a small number of words to learn to spell each week.

How you can help!

These websites will help your child to practise skills that they have been learning at school.
