Welcome to Ash Class
Ash Class is taught by Mrs Pontet (Mrs Sinfield on a Thursday),
ably assisted by Mrs Harrowell and Mrs Larkins.
After the Easter holidays we will be learning about World War 2. If you can, please read a book, during the break, related to this topic. It can be fiction or non-fiction. You can read it by yourself in any format, listen to an audio book, have it read to you or share it with a family member. You can find some suggestions at this website https://www.booksfortopics.com/ww2 .
I can't wait to hear all about what you have learnt already when we start back for the summer term!
We learnt so much more about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths! Chromatography,
Robo-insects of the future, building self propelled cars in an engineering challenge
and of course the Science Fair.
Awesome, Amazing, Adventurous Ash Class !
During Spring 2021, we will be discovering lots of interesting things about South America, including learning about the variety of countries and cultures in this fascinating continent, as well as how important trade (and Fair-trade) is. And of course we will further our understanding of the amazing Amazon rainforest too!
In science, we will build on our knowledge of classification and living things, using some of our English lessons to write factual reports about some of the wonderful creatures of South America. We will continue our work in RE on Sikhism and use our art lessons to develop our skills and understanding of different artists.
Some of you will be delighted that we will be doing 2 PE lessons a week this term, one Real PE and one Games. These will be on a Monday and Thursday.
Obviously, we will continue to have maths and English everyday. Spellings, Grammar, Whole Class Reading, studying different texts, arithmetic, fractions and decimals - so much to look forward to!!!
