The Huntspill Primary Academies

WE learn, WE achieve, WE flourish


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.

Spring Term 2022

Welcome back!

This term our topic is 'What’s It Made Of?' We will be reading a variety of different stories, including Cinderella and the Three Little Pigs. 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 also be developing and improving our writing by learning about different genres through using The Write Stuff. In Science our topic is 'Everyday Materials’ and we will be learning about different materials, their properties and their uses. In PSHE our topic is ‘Dreams and Goals'. We will be talking about the goals we can set ourselves and the things we would like to get better at, both in school and at home. In Art we will be learning about the artwork of Andy Warhol and Henri Matisse to support us with creating our own pieces of art. We will also be printing different patterns and textures using plasticine. In RE we will be learning about Special Places, both in Christianity and in Judaism and we will be talking about why these places are special. In Humanities we will be learning about human and physical features and creating simple maps and plans relating to the stories that we are studying. We will be learning about rhythm and beats in Music and in PE we will be developing our dancing skills and putting some simple movements together to make dance sequences. 

We are looking forward to a productive and exciting term. 

The Learning Environment and Class Displays


What have we been doing?

We have been counting objects and matching them to the numbers. 


We had a fabulous 'Pirate Day' in Ash Class. We enjoyed lots of pirate activities, including making coins, building pirate ships and walking the plank!

We also had a visit from 'Captain Comber' which the children really enjoyed!
