Week 2 - 10.01.22 - 14.01.22
Its been another very busy week for Ash class this week! At the beginning of the week we started to learn new Hockey skills in P.E, the children all enjoyed it, even in the rain and showed some amazing Hockey skills. In science this term we are learning all about plants and have been looking at all the different parts of a flowering plants, we have all enjoyed learning about the parts and how they help flowers produce new seeds. We then learnt how to dissect a flower to see all the different parts we had been learning about. We loved it pulling the sepals and petals off the reveal the different parts.
We had our first Topic lesson of the term this week, we were surprised to see just how many counties there are in England and enjoyed learning about where they are located. following our topic, the children created the most incredible line drawings of Big Ben, We can't wait to show everyone the amazing artwork.
In English, we have continued to learn the poem, 'The sound collector', The children have completed amazing work based on the poem and how developed a super understanding of rhyming patterns. Next week we will start making up our own poems.
Miss Townly and Mrs Fraser also want to say a massive WELL DONE to all of Ash class for their continued practise of the different times table, We have been amazed by the times tables knowledge and know that everyone has been putting in lots of hard work. Well done Ash class!
We hope you have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
Happy New Year
We hope that you have had a lovely Christmas and are excited for the new year and we are looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday. Our topic this term is London, Britain and we will be learning about tolerance, peace and diversity. If you have anything at home to do with our new topic, we would love to see it in school and maybe have it contribute to our topic table and we are looking forward to seeing your homework. In science this term we are learning about plants, in art we are learning about printing and the work of Banksy and in PE they will be learning how to play Hockey. There will be no forest school this term.

Monday 4th October - Friday 8th October
It has been another busy and exciting week in Ash class this week. We were all excited on Tuesday when we were able to go to the church to celebrate the harvest festival. The children sang and spoke beautifully in church and we were extremely proud of them.
We have also had fun learning the clarinet, painting beautiful sunset pictures and forest school. In English we have been learning a new text, Antony and Cleopatra and in maths we have started to learn more about the operations of addition and subtraction.
Everyone has has worked really hard this week, I hope you have a lovely weekend and if you are celebrating your birthday, have a wonderful day!
Readers of the week, well done!!!
We love the clarinet!
Antony and Cleopatra, character description story map
Our English focus up until half term is the story of Antony and Cleopatra. The children are learning a character description of Cleopatra, it would be fabulous for the children to practice the description at home by using the images to help retell it.
Our readers of the week! Well done!
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!
