A happy Miss Irwin

Dear Parents,

I would like to say a big thank you to all of those families who have completed their measuring homework this week and emailed me the photos. To see evidence of you taking part in your child’s learning has made me feel very proud of you all. Well done! 🙂

I will be adding your child’s homework to their assessment. As part of a good school and home relationship 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. I 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





Homework and reading books

Our first homework sheets were put in our bags on Wednesday. 

This week our homework is to complete the sound (phoneme) sheets for the letters we’ve learnt so far this week- s and a.   

If we complete our homework we get team points and stickers. If we struggle with our homework, please write it in the diary so Miss Irwin knows. She may be able to help.

We also got our first reading books on Friday. Please write in the diary when we read. We have to read the books a minimum of 2 times before they are changed.  

Class Jonah ask for homework books!!

Its true families! The other day in class one of us found some notebooks in our writing draws and we started to write in them. We asked Miss Irwin if we could take them home and do homework in them! Miss Irwin was obviously very pleased at our enthusiasm so she got us some old exercise books from the storeroom and now we all have ‘homework book’s we can practise our writing and number work in. We have been using them in class and have been sharing our work with each other!

Miss Irwin has not set us any homework, we are just doing work with out being asked because we want to!

In Class Jonah we don’t do formalised homework like the other classes do. However, Miss Irwin is now thinking of new ways we could do homework in books as we seem so excited about it! Until Miss Irwin comes up with a plan and puts it into action. Please help us if we are doing work in them because it will only make our brains bigger. We can bring our books in and show our work and we are allowed to use them at choosing time to do work in too.

Miss Irwin is so impressed with us she can’t believe how grown up we all are. 🙂
