Homework Grid

Please see below our new homework grid. Children in all year groups from Reception to Year 6, will receive a half termly grid with a range of exciting activities to complete. You can find a copy of this grid at the back of your Child's Homework Book. Please sign and date it when your child has completed a challenge. Feel free to record activities as you wish in your homework book. This could be with photos, drawings or writing. You could also share it with us using Evidence Me!










At Ireland Wood Primary School, we follow the Read Write Inc literacy programme, to ensure every child is a successful reader. Phonics lessons are taught on a daily basis and are both fun and multi-sensory, to appeal to the different learning styles of our children. Please follow our progress in Reception, as we begin our learning journey.


These are the Set 1 Speed Sounds written with one letter:
m a s d t i n p g o c k u b f e l h r j v y w z x. 

These are the sounds written with two letters (your child will call these 'Special Friends') :
sh th ch qu ng nk ck.

You can help your child practise the Speed Sounds they have learnt by using the practice sheets in their Family Fun books. Please see below,  additional resources to support your child to read words containing the Set 1 Speed Sounds.

Our First Few Weeks In Reception!

The children have had a fantastic few weeks exploring their new classroom environment , both indoors and outdoors. We are very proud of all the children and how they have settled into their new school routine.

Investors In Pupils

As children have settled into Reception classes this week, we have established our class vision and how we would like our classroom to be. We have also made teacher and pupil promises, which we have all signed.
