We have been really busy again this week in Iris Class. Firstly, the children have all made progress with putting their coats on and getting changed for PE. Ever little bit helps and the children begin to feel more and more proud of their achievements. 

We have been learning about food which keeps us healthy and why we need it. The children have been sorting a variety of foods into two groups of healthy and unhealthy food and giving reasons for their decisions. 

The children have been introduced to the next set of letter sounds this week, g, o, c and k, and they have participated in their first guided reading activity. Please can I ask that all reading books and planners are kept in the children's bags so we can access them at any time. A big 'thank you' to those people who have been writing in the planners about reading at home and home learning. It is vitally important that the children get to practise their reading skills on a regular basis. The children who make the most progress are the children who read the most! 

In Maths, we have been thinking about the numeral that represents '1.' We have added 0 to it, taken away 0 from it and made the quantity to match the numeral in a variety of ways. We have also been making pictures using 2D shapes, talking about their names and their properties. 

I am sorry to say that the Phonics Workshop has had to be cancelled next week but we look forward to seeing you at the Reading Workshop the following week. 

Please can you ensure that if your child is wearing tights on PE days that they have a pair of socks available in their PE bags. Thank you. 

Thanks you also to those people who attended or bought cakes from the 'Coffee for Cransley' afternoon. I'm sure you will agree it was a lovely afternoon for a very worthwhile cause.

Home Learning

At the beginning of each new term the children will receive a booklet of home learning tasks and activities for them to complete and work on each week. The most important part of home learning is to talk with your child, read to, and with your child, every day and record this in their School Planners and allow them to think for themselves and develop their independence skills. After Christmas, as the children become developmentally ready, they will each have a small number of simple words to learn to spell each week.

How you can help!

Help to develop questioning skills and encouraging the children to record their own independent learning would really help the children.
