(Reception and Year 1)
Welcome to Ash Class.
This year Ash Class is a mixed Reception and Year 1 group of 24 children who are supported by Miss Linthorne, who is the class teacher and Mrs Baker and Miss Nurcombe. We enjoy a play based curriculum in the Early Years and aim to do lots of our learning through a range of active tasks in Year 1 too.
In Ash Class we enjoy working hard and striving 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.
All of the staff in Ash Class are excited to welcome the children back to school. We are especially looking forward to seeing the new Reception children and welcoming you into your new classroom.
The classroom will look a little different this year but this is so that we can all do our best to stay safe! Although things will be a little different, we will be keeping things as normal as we can, with lots of opportunities to talk and join in with a variety of activities and tasks. We will still have lots of fun with our learning!
Our topic for the Autumn Term is 'Whose footsteps do we follow?' We will be learning about some interesting events through history and developing our map skills.
We will continue to have daily Phonics, English and Maths lessons to develop our learning and support us with learning new skills.
We are also using JIGSAW which is a scheme to "prepare children for life, helping them really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world".
