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. 

Writing workshop


What we are learning: 

WC: 14.1.18


Firstly a big thank you to all the family members that joined us for our writing workshop. It was fantastic to see so many of you and the children were really thrilled to share a part of their school day with their loved ones. The power point can be found just above this text and there are also some photo's of  you all in action! 

This week we will be looking at 'Music'. In our party role play area there will be a new instrument every day. The children will have the chance to explore it and discuss if they like or dislike the sound that it makes. If you have any interesting instruments at home please feel free to bring them in as we would love to look at them (we will keep them very safe as well). 

In literacy children will be writing invitations to Elm class to invite them to our music concert! We will then be picking 3 songs which we will learn ready for our performance on Monday.  On Wednesday Miss Begum and Mrs Pipkin will be playing a game where the children close their eyes whilst they play an instrument. They then  have to guess which instrument is being played and then write their guess as a sentence e.g. I think it is a drum. 

We have been very impressed with the children's understanding of money and they are all now very confident to use the correct language when reading price labels. This week we will be looking at subtraction. The children will discover when they enter Numberland that too many objects are on their garden. They will have to count back to find out how many to take away and then record what they have done with a number sentence! This will be very tricky but we are sure the children will rise to the challenge like they always do smiley.   


Don't forget children need to have their library book in their drawer on Wednesday so that they can choose a new book. 


Maths table: number formation to 10

Finger gym table: mini keyboard's 

Literacy table: guess what is in the feeling bag


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