Ash Class Y1

Welcome to Ash Class


Welcome to The first half of the Summer term! Thank you for your wonderful support. We hope you had a lovely Easter break.


Our school day begins at 8:45am and collection is at 3:25pm. Please try to be prompt so the children can register, settle quickly and get ready for phonics.

Please always inform us if someone different than normal is collecting your child (they need to be over the age of 16)


We are always here to help so please feel free to contact us if you have any worries or concerns about your child via the school email address (  or by ringing the school office (01204 883415) and we will get back to you as soon as we can.



As we are in the summer term and hopefully the weather will improve, it is vital that the children have a water bottle in school every day, so they can keep themselves well hydrated. However, the weather can be changeable so it is equally important for them to bring a coat to school on grey days so they can enjoy outside play.

Home Learning Challenges

Summer Term Home Learning Challenges linked to the Geography Topic studied during Summer Term - Where in the World is India? are due back into school by Monday 20th June 2022.


Children will be bringing home their new half-termly spelling letters during the first week back at school. Please ensure you continue to help your child learn their spellings and apply them in their writing; this is often the part children struggle with once they have learnt them for a test.


Don’t forget you have access to a wide range of additional books on Bug Club as well as the weekly book your child brings home on Fridays. Listening to your child read regularly will really support them with their fluency and decoding. Children will now also be able to visit the School Library each week to choose a book to read in class.

Finally, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the team if you would like to discuss any issue regarding your child.


Thank you for your on-going support.

Mrs Shivnan Taylor, Mrs Rothwell and Miss Barnes.
