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: 

WC: 20.5


The children have really enjoyed our work on the rainbow fish. They have produced some amazing clay fish which you can see in the photos above. 


This week we will be learning all about washing! We will be looking at some differences in washing equipment and how they have changed over the years. If you have any old washing equipment please feel free to bring it in and share it with us.


The children will be learning about the story "Mrs Wishy Washy" and writing their own sentences about the story. They will be working on spelling tricky words and sounding out words correctly.  


We will be continuing our Numberland theme. The children will be visiting Numberland with the goal of showing us exactly what the know! They will be able to show us their understanding of pattern, shape, addition, subtraction by the way that they present their gardens to us. 


Story of the week: Royal Wedding

Maths table: Numberland houses    

Finger gym table:  what can you build? 

Literacy table: guess what is in the feely bag (oo objects)

Circle table: this will change each day



If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

3D Shapes I Know (new pyramid version) This version includes only ONE chorus at a time, whereas the old version used to do 2 at a time. I didn't like that the old one felt too long each time. I've also included a section about "a pyramid" now.
