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 have had a great week learning about caterpillars and both their fiction and non-fiction sentences were very impressive. Why not ask them to tell you 2 facts that they have learned about caterpillars, I'm sure you will be wowed with their new knowledge!
This week we will be building on what we have been learning about and exploring butterflies. The children will be learning about the lifecycle of a butterfly and then having a go at putting each key phase in the correct order. They will also be writing sentences to explain what they have learnt.
In our Maths sessions children will have the chance to explore capacity through water. They will be discussing if their container is full up, half full, nearly empty or empty as they play alongside their friends. We will also continue to explore weight with the large scales outdoors and through the maths table challenge.
We look forward to seeing you all at our Maths workshop this Thursday at 9.10am
