Thank you for taking the time to visit Ireland’s page, it is with great pleasure that we welcome your children into the 4+.

The children will be learning through play in each of the different areas, it nurtures their development, encourages communication skills and encourages them to solve simple problems. Children can be spontaneous and encourage them to be independent learners. The areas that we focus on are Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Physical Development, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World.

Autumn Term 2

Welcome back! We hope you had a good half term.


Around the World

This term we are finding out about different countries; looking at the climate, learning about different food and famous buildings they have. We will have the opportunity to learn about different cultures, traditions and customs for each country.

For our Stunning Start we will turn the school hall into an airport, the children will go through security, board an aeroplane and go to a destination of their choice! We will also be making passports and trying many different foods from the countries that we visit.

If anyone has visited any countries and would like to share their experience with the children that would be fantastic; just let us know.


Snack and Water bottle

Your child will need a healthy snack such as fruit, vegetable or plain biscuit and a named drink’s bottle filled with water only. We will fill the water bottles up every day with fresh water and send them home every Friday. Children can bring in a bottle of juice/carton that they can have with lunch.



Children will need to come to school on a Wednesday for Ireland. The school policy states children are not allowed to wear earrings during P.E and should either be removed before attending school or alternatively your child can remove it themselves before the lesson. If your child decides to do this they are responsible for their items and no responsibility will be held by the adults if anything goes missing.



These are the groups for Phase 2 Letters and Sounds which we will be covering with your children, here is a list of the order that we have looked at them.

group 1 – s, a, t, p

group 2 – i, n, m, d,

group 3 – g, o, c, k

group 4 – ck, e, u, r

group 5 – h, b, f, ff, ll, ss

These are the songs that we sing during phonics which will help them to remember them –



Your child will be given a reading book and a record to bring home. He/she will get the opportunity to change their reading book twice a week on a Monday and Thursday. Please listen to your child read as often as possible and record any comments in the reading record. We really encourage reading at home and reading for 10 minutes daily is the fastest way to help your child progress. Once they’ve read 10 times they will be able to choose a prize.
