Welcome to Ash class if you have any questions please feel free to speak to a member of staff at the beginning or end of the day.


Our P.E lessons are on a Monday morning and a Friday afternoon. Please ensure P.E kits are at school on these days.


We use the outside area as our second classroom so please make sure children bring suitable clothing for the weather as they will be outside whatever the weather. If possible please leave wellies (named) in school as we have a digging area, water wall and mud kitchen that children have daily access to. 


What we are learning: 

The children looked wonderful in their spotty clothes on Friday. I hope they all enjoyed our spotty ramble around the school! 


This week we will start to learn about Christmas. Hopefully the children are already coming home singing our nativity songs! This week we visit the hall everyday to start practising our play. The children will come home with any lines they need to learn shortly. If you have any questions about this please talk to your class teacher.  


This week in phonics we will be introducing digraphs. The children will learn that when two letters hold hands they make a new sound. We will be learning the following digraphs: qu,sh,ch, th. Please take a look at the video below which will help you pronounce the sounds correctly.   


The children were very good at using the language of more and fewer this week. They also learnt that sometimes you need to count both sets of objects before you can tell which one has more/fewer. This week in Numberland the children will be sharing out a certain number of objects in their garden and then seeing how many they have altogether. They will also have a go at recording this sum, for example: if they put 4 ladybirds on one circle of their garden and 4 in the other circle they may write on their whiteboard 4+4=8. 


The challenge for the following tables are as follows:

-maths table: more and fewer games 

-finger gym: lego boards to make marble runs 

-story table: Gingerbread man story 

-phonics table: fishing for phonics 



Many thanks for your continued support.
