Welcome to Ash Class

(Reception and Year 1)

Home Learning Activities

Home Learning:

We now have a dedicated Home Learning email address that you can use to ask questions regarding your child’s learning whilst at home.  Please note that this is to assist you in your home learning and not to answer specific questions like ‘What is the answer to question number 4?’   We are anticipating that you will receive a reply within 48 working hours.

The email address for this is:  homelearning.hfed@educ.somerset.gov.uk

We are also setting up an ‘Achievement Wall’ to display what your child/children have been doing at home. Please use the school’s email addresses to send us information or photographs of your child’s work.  Please put the words ‘ACHIEVEMENT INFORMATION’ in the subject box. We look forward to seeing what they have been up to.

 Please have a look at the home learning page for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 as this gives you links to websites with interesting ideas and activities during the children's time at home. 

EYFS Parents - If you could email the office with your own email address, I will endeavour to open up Tapestry for you to record activities that your child has been completing.

Many thanks.

Welcome to Ash Class! 

This year Ash Class is made up of a very happy and excited group of 12 Reception children and 11 children from Year 1 taught by Miss Linthorne, Mrs Baker and Miss Nurcombe.

All of the children have made a fantastic start to the spring term and are keen and ready to continue their learning journey.

This spring term our topic is 'Autumn to Winter.'

We are continuing to use our Jolly Phonics sounds to help us blend and segment words when reading and writing. 

We have been using numbers to 50 when adding and subtracting. We have also been learning the properties of 3D and 2D shapes. 

We have been making the most of our outdoor classroom to develop our learning. 

We are looking forward to spring and summer welly walks, forest school and continuing to develop our outdoor learning.   

This year we will be sending home knowledge organisers to provide information about the topics we will be studying each term.
