On Thursday we had a fabulous day celebrating World Book Day. We started off the day by taking part in a 'Secret Reader' activity. We all went to the hall where we found our about the books that the adults were going to read but we didn't know who the adult was going to be. So that was very exciting! We then based our whole day's learning around the Aliens Love Underpants stories by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. The children looked amazing in their costumes; thank you to parents and carers for supporting the school and the children. We read lots of the stories, we talked about patterns on the pants, we looked at space and we made our own aliens using play-doh. The children had a brilliant day! 

In maths this week we have been introduced to 9. We have answered the question, 'Is it 9?' and used the word 'because' to explain our thinking. We have used the numicon to make 9 in a variety of ways and talked about our calculations. 

Our two new sounds this week have been 'ow' as in cow and 'ur' as in turn. Lots of the children are improving their accuracy when blending and segmenting the sounds both orally and in reading and writing. Please keep reading and recording it in your planners. 
We have begun learning about light and dark and we have a brilliant diamond on our class door to remind us of the title of our theme, 'Shine Bright!' The children have been investigating some light sources and experiencing a bear cave outside which links to the story, 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear.' 

A super busy week once again in Iris Class. 

Reminders:- 
1) On Friday 20th March we will be asking the children to wear odd socks to raise awareness of Down Syndrome. 
2) Please add observations to the Interactive Learning Diary to support your child's development. If you need any help then please see Mrs Dickens or Mrs Coles.

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.
