 Welcome to Ash Class 

 

Grace, Courage, Friendship

This year, we will be taught by Miss Khaliq and supported by Mrs Lamacraft & Mrs Jones, along with our  LSA, Mr Wyatt. 

 

Keep an eye on this page as we continue to update it with all of our fantastic learning, achievements and celebrations. 

Our topic for this term is

 

 

 

Week 3

We have had a lovely third week back filled with lots of learning, fun and a fantastic school outing! Our trip to Butser Farm was very interesting and helped us experience many things we have learnt about in the Stone, Iron and Bronze age. We learnt about jewelry making, chalk carving, yarn spinning, and excavations based around a Roman villa!

 

English:

This week we focused on all the VIPERS skills, understanding what each skill is and the different types of questions for each skill. We also continued reading our 'Roman Rescue' adventure story. We created a writer's toolkit, looking at different features, phrases and vocabulary from the text, building up a word bank of alternatives to use in our shared, paired and independent writing.

 

Maths:

We started our Multiplication block this week. We focused on recognising equal groups, using arrays and counting in multiples of 2. We have had fun singing songs to help us with our 2- and 5-times tables!

 

Christmas Show

 

We are thrilled to be starting rehearsals for the Phase 1 Christmas Show, especially after not being able to do them for a few years. The casting has been done and your children may be bringing home lines that they need to learn outside of school so that we can focus on blocking the show inside school. All children will also be involved in the singing so below are the song lyrics needed for the show. The backing tracks for the songs are here:
