Welcome to Ireland Class!


It has been lovely welcoming back the children and getting to know them. It has been strange getting used to the new way of doing things but we are settling well. 


I am looking forward to getting to know the children and sharing our learning together. Here's to a happy year together developing knowledge, skills and understanding!



English   (w/b 4th January)

Stay tuned to find out what we will be reading next. 

Here is a clue....


Maths (w/b 4th January)


For the next few weeks we will be learning about addition and subtraction within 20. We will be using our knowledge of number bonds to help us with addition and subtraction. We will also continue to practice writing number sentences and our number formation. 



Phonics - Spring Term

For the rest of the year we will be teaching Phase 5 phonics. In this phase pupils are taught new graphemes that make the same sound like some that they already know. For example, they already know that ‘ee’ as in ‘teeth,’ but they will now learn ‘ea’ as in ‘bead.’


In Phase 5, children are taught ‘ay’, ‘ou’, ‘ie’, ‘ea’, ‘oy’, ‘ir’, ‘ue’, ‘aw’, ‘wh’, ‘ph’, ‘ew’, ‘oe’, ‘au’, ‘ey’ ‘a-e’, ‘e-e’, ‘i-e’, ‘o-e’ and ‘u-e’. It is worth noting that ‘ue’, ‘ew’ and ‘u-e’ all have two pronunciations: ‘oo’ and ‘yoo.’


At the end of Phase 5, children will learn that there are many alternative pronunciations for graphemes they already know. For example, they will learn that ‘c’ can make the sound ‘s’ in words such as ‘ice’ and ‘city'. There are also nine ‘tricky words’ to learn at Phase 5: ‘oh’, ‘their’, ‘people’, ‘Mr’, ‘Mrs’, ‘looked’, ‘called’, ‘asked’ and ‘could’.
