 Mrs Parker Teaching Assistant

Welcome to Iris Class page. We are so pleased that so many of the children have settled in and are enjoying school. If anyone has any worries or concerns, please do speak to one of the available adults who will help you at drop off or pick up. There is no worry too small!


Things to remember:

- Please can you label all of the children's clothing/belongings with their name

- Please do not put any items containing nuts in their packed lunch

-Please bring their reading folders back on Monday (Thursday at the latest). We will not be able to send a new book home without the old book being returned first

-Please bring PE kit on Tuesdays


Things to do at home...


At school, we are going over the sounds we learned last term in phonics. You can help at home by identifying the sounds you hear in words like c-a-t, m-o-p etc. The children are practicing writing their name daily as well as writing the sounds we are learning. You will have received a print out sheet to help you with this at parents evening.







We are going to be learning about how numbers to five can be made (4+1 & 3+2). You can support this by encouraging them to think about having 1 more eg if I have 3 pebbles, and you give me one more, how many have I got now? 






We expect our children to take responsibility for their classroom and toys; it is their space to care of. We will always support our children to be independent learners and you can help with this by encouraging them to dress/undress independently, helping to prepare meals (using tools safely) and having small responsibilities around the house such as pairing socks and putting their toys away.


We are using the phonics scheme Little Wandle to help us learn to read. Below you can download a pronunciation guide to the sounds we will be learning this term.

We use Tapestry to communicate messages, reminders and to share photos of learning with you at home. We ask that you share special moments and occasions with us too throughout the year.

We will share these with the class as it allows the children to see and feel a connection between home and school and supports them to settle in. 

If you are having any problems signing up to Tapestry, please speak to one of the adults who will be able to help you. 


Joining the Library


We believe that stories and reading is one of the most important things to share and we wouldn't want anyone to miss out. Joining the library and borrowing books is completely free. Our closest library is on Narborough Road (although there are lots of libraries all over the city). There are no forms to fill in, just drop in with some proof of ID. Why not pop in after nursery? You can join for free and start borrowing today!
