How you can help at home 14.10.16

This week in school we have been learning so much our brains can not fit into our jumpers! 

In phonics we have been learning the phonemes K and ck as well as the tricky words- the, I and to. 

In our maths we have been ordering numbers and matching amounts to numbers. 

As well as tecobginsong numbers we have also been carrying on with our formation. We practised 8 and 9. We know if we do 9 the wrong way around it looks like a letter P.

We have also been writing our dinosaur plans for our dinosaur models next week by writing labels for what materials we will need. Our segmenting and blending is getting better with practise. 

In our exploring we have had dinosaur making competitions.
In Buddy time we designed our big brain front book covers.

We’ve been making dens
and looking for fossils.

We’ve even started to make our own fossil pictures with Mrs Ainscough. 

How you can help out learning at home

  1. Practise wrong numbers around the house on pay it notes and get us to find the. And order them. Can we tell you what the numbers are?
  2. Practise writing words for models or toys we play with. Using writing in our every day routine is a good way to encourage us to write for a purpose. 
  3. Practise our new letters by finding them in words a round the house or shops. 

Homework, Non uniform and school disco. 

Dear Class Jonah parents,

You have not had any homework today as you will be getting a half term homework sheet to read and work on over half term. All marked homework will be returned into bags tomorrow with the new half term sheet.

Thanks again to all those parents and children who have emailed me their homework these last two weeks. Your all doing a fabulous job and it really is making a difference to your child’s learning supporting their learning at home. Well done.­čśÇ

Here is just a little showcase of some of the homework I have had emailed to me. More to come next term.


Please be aware tomorrow is a non-uniform day for a PFA fundraiser and on Friday it is non-uniform day┬áfor the current May Queen Lily Lou as a fundraiser. Please bring donations for non-uniform in an envelope so it doesn’t get lost!┬á
Tomorrow morning I will not be in school as I am on a EYFS course. Mrs Worswick will be teaching Class Jonah for me.

Kind regards

Miss Irwin

A happy Miss Irwin

Dear Parents,

I would like to say┬áa big thank you to all of those┬áfamilies who have completed their measuring homework this week and emailed me the photos.┬áTo see┬áevidence of you┬átaking part in your child’s learning has made me feel very proud of you all. Well done!┬á­čÖé

I will be adding your child’s homework to their assessment. As┬ápart of a good school and┬áhome┬árelationship it’s important we share your children’s learning with each other. Please continue to send in your photos of their homework and any other learning you observe at home.┬áI have shared some of the photos with the class already and they loved seeing each others measuring skills.

Tomorrow’s homework will include similar tasks where children will have to use everyday objects to complete their targets. I have asked for photos to be emailed again, so please keep up the good work.

Thank you for being such supportive parents, it really is making a difference to your child’s learning.

Many thanks again,

From Miss Irwin
