Monday 18th January - The Little Red Hen Story Map
Children in Need - Friday 13th November
We had a great time in class today. We joined in with Joe Wicks PE, learnt how to draw Pudsey, made Pudsey ears and much, much more!
Bonfire Night Chocolate Apples
To celebrate Bonfire Night, we made chocolate apples. Following a recipe, we melted chocolate before dipping apples in and covering them with different sprinkles. Yum yum!
Maths - Time
Today, we have been investigating how to measure different periods of time. We used sand timers and stop watches to measure how long we could run on the spot, jump, clap hands with a partner and walk around the playground!
Happy half term! See you on Monday 2nd November!
Black History Month - October 2020
As part of Black History Month, we read different multicultural stories and looked at books about different important people within Black history, such as Rosa Parks. On Friday 23rd October, we learnt about Martin Luther King Jr and his 'I have a dream...' speech. The children printed handprints of all different skin colours and wrote the word 'dream' on them. We have created a wreath of hands to show we are all as one.
Welly Wednesday - Visiting our woodland area
We ventured around the back of the junior building to our woodland area. We talked about how to use the area safely and explored it. Then we sat on logs and sang nursery rhymes together!
RE - Harvest and Creation
We have been learning about Harvest and how God's wonderful world grows food for us to eat. We looked at the labels on different fruits and found where they were grown around the world. We used the fruits to create a fruit salad. It was delicious!
In our outdoor area, we created tree spirits. We stuck clay to our favorite trees in pairs and created faces using natural materials.
We are really enjoying our PE lessons this half term. We are working on skills such as rolling, underarm throwing at a target and moving in different directions.
Our Natural Self Portraits
We used natural materials to create our self portraits. We think they look wonderful!
Our First Week at School
We had a very busy first week at school. Here are a few pictures to show how we explored our areas and made friends in the first week of school.
Welcome to the Ash Class page. The children are settling into school well and are learning the routines and structures of school. Some key information is listed below:
- PE days are Tuesdays (Group 1) and Thursdays (Group 2).
- Home reading books will be issued soon and will be changed once a week.
- Homework activities are set every Friday via One Note and photos should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by the following Thursday, ready for our homework celebration.
- On Mondays, merit and manners certificates are given out through whole school celebration assembly on Teams. The child who receives the merit certificate will take home an Everywhere Bear pack, which contains special activities and adventures. Photographs and comments can be emailed to email@example.com and these will be shared with the rest of the class.
- We have started developing our 'Amazing Ash' display in class. Please send in anything your child would like to add to their photo frame (photographs can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org).
The EYFS unit (Pre-School and Reception) share topics and plan as a team, as all children free-flow and share the two classrooms and outdoor area. Please click on the topics below to see our plans for current or past topics this year.
Our topics this year are:
All About Me (Transition Topic)
Festivals and Celebrations
Fairy Tales/Traditional Tales
Things that Grow
All Around the World
Whilst our topics stay the same each year, our planning centres around the children's interests and the themed books change every year for three years. This ensures that the children who are within our EYFS unit over the maximum 3 year period have access to different learning opportunities each year.
Please see previous years medium term planning below
|Year 1 (2020-2021)||Year 2 (2018 - 2019)||Year 3 (2019 - 2020)|

Wow, i have just enjoyed half an hour looking through all the pictures. They look like they have had a fantastic term, thanks for all the great work, Isla has come on leaps and bounds both academically and socially since starting school! Can’t wait to see what she learns next term! Isla-Grace’s mum :)
Ava loved visiting the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis with her classmates. She really enjoyed seeing the pheasants because they were colourful. Her favourite picture is the one of all the group with Mrs Govier and Miss Blackwell on.
Thank you for taking us to Tesco, I liked the big freezers!! I liked looking at the pictures on the website
I enjoyed the trip to Tesco, especially the Fishmonger!
It was lovely to see the photos of Ash class visiting TESCO and Thomas told me all about the salmon having it's head cut off. He was easy to spot as he was wearing the blue jumper!! Jean apparently showed the class round and Thomas enjoyed his trip.
I really enjoyed Tesco visit my best bit was going in the chilly freezer
We looked through the school website and Libby found it interesting. She loved looking at the pictures of trip to Tesco and going through the online safety and watching the videos of Hector’s World
Great page for updates and what the class are/have been up to, school trips look like lots of fun and useful learning, Oliver has really been enjoying the topics so far this year :)
