Welcome to Ash Class
(Reception and Year 1)
This year Ash Class is a mixed group of 24 Reception and Year 1 children who are supported by Miss Linthorne and Mrs Jefferies. Mrs Fear will also be teaching the class on Thursday afternoons. We enjoy an active curriculum in Reception, which encourages the children to develop their knowledge and understanding whilst helping them to work with greater independence. We give the Year 1 children opportunities for practical learning and open-ended tasks to promote deeper thinking and to support the development of resilience in their learning.
In Ash Class we enjoy working hard to enable us to be the best that we can be. We like to put lots of our work on display so that we can celebrate the wonderful things we have been doing and learning. We are friendly, kind and helpful to others and have an excellent attitude towards our work.
Summer Term 2022
This term our topic is 'What’s your favourite story?' We will be reading a variety of different stories, including Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Beanstalk and You Choose. We will be asking the children about their favourite stories and talking about what makes them so great to read! We will continue to develop our knowledge of phonics using Read Write Inc and we will be learning and using lots of new vocabulary relating to our topic. We will continue to improve our writing by learning about different genres, including story writing, reports and letters. In Science our topics are 'Plants’ and 'Seasons' and we will be learning about a range of plants in our locality and what they need to stay healthy, as well as learning about the changes that occur between seasons. In PSHE our topics are ‘Relationships' and 'Changing Me'. We will be talking about the relationships we have with others and some of the changes that we go through in our lives. In Art we will be learning about the artwork of Claude Monet and Piet Mondrian to support us with creating our own pieces of art. We will also be printing different patterns and textures using vegetables and fruit. In RE we will be learning about special stories told by Jesus and some stories from the Old Testament. We will be retelling some of these stories and thinking about why they are special. In Humanities we will be learning about the Royal Family and celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. We will also be learning about different locations in the UK. This term we will be developing our footballing skills in PE and also learning some different new skills which will help us during team sports.
We are looking forward to an interesting and productive term!
