Welcome to Ash Class
Grace, Courage, Friendship
We are very excited to welcome 24 wonderful children to Ash class this year. We are looking forward to a fantastic and exciting year of fun and learning.
The teacher in Ash class this year is Miss Townly and we are very lucky to also have the amazing Mrs Fraser with us everyday!
Our topic this term is the Ancient Egyptians, we are excited to learn about Pharaohs, pyramids, gods and goddesses, mummification and much much more. In Math we will begin by learning about place value and number, as well as continued practice of the times tables. In science our topic is living things including humans, the focus of our learning will be on the digestive system, teeth and we will also be learning about food chains. This year we will begin our computing lessons by learning about internet safety and cyber-bullying and in Art we will be creating some fantastic pieces of art based on our learning of Ancient Egypt. We also have exciting, French, PSHE, RE and Music learning this term.
P.E will be on a Tuesday and Thursday - The children will need to wear their PE kits to school - not their school uniform. They will remain to their PE kits all day. Please still ensure that all items are labelled.
SUPER SIX: Please could you help your child to make sure they have the essential items at school: writing pen, pencil, rubber, ruler, pencil sharpener & glue stick.
Homework: Maths and Spelling homework are both set on Fridays, to be returned by the following Friday. It is expected that children read at least 5 x per week at home. They will give in their reading records on a Thursday and receive a housepoint if they have had 5 adult signatures in their reading record.
Spellings for this week have been uploaded onto teams.
Please check the class page regularly as there will be useful information and photos of all the different activities we have been doing throughout the week.
Our week - 13.09.21 - 17.09.21
What a busy and exciting week we have had this week. On Thursday we had our very first forest school, it was a brilliant afternoon where the children made fairy houses and searched for different types of leaves. WE are all very excited for next week. Thank you to the parents that came to help with forest schools this week, it is very much appreciated.
We also had our first clarinet lesson on Wednesday, we learnt how to assemble the clarinets carefully and how to make a sound that wasn't too squeaky. It was amazing and we cannot wait until our next lesson.
Well done to all of Ash class, everyone filled in their reading records, showing how much they have read but also used the bookmarks to tell us about the books they have been reading, it has been informative and a joy to find out lots of different opinions. Keep it up!
The children have come home with new spellings this week and maths homework, please may the children practice their spellings everyday and bring their folder with spellings and homework in for next Thursday. Thank you.
Have a fantastic weekend and for many of you, enjoy Cub Camp!
