Welcome to Ash Class


Welcome to the Ash Class Page!


I hope you have all had a fantastic summer and feel refreshed for the Autumn Term. We are ready and excited to welcome to the children back for another action packed and exciting school year. I am really looking forward to being back with the children and having a great start to Year 1!


Below you will find key dates and curriculum information which hopefully you will find useful. Please try to catch me before or after school or via an email to the school office if you have any questions or queries. As always you can follow along with some of our learning on Twitter or Facebook via the links below!


We look forward to working in partnership with you during the coming year.

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.



Please ensure you send your child to school with a water bottle every day. It is important that they can keep themselves hydrated at all times. Please also be wary of unpredictable weather and ensure that your child has a waterproof coat so that they can enjoy outside play in all weathers.

Summer Term 1 Activities

Topic'Nurturing Nurses' Our first topic of the Autumn term is called Nurturing Nurses. Within this topic we will explore healthy living and exercise before moving on to famous nurses from our past for example 'Florence Nightingale'.


English  Our chosen text for this half term is "The Secret Sky Garden". This book allows for lots of discussion about the world around us and things we can do to protect it.


Year 1-

In Year 1 we will be learning about:

  • Numbers to 10.
  • Number bonds. 
  • Comparing Numbers. 


R.E. –  Harvest



P.E days:

  • Our PE days are Tuesdays and Fridays.

Our P.E days are Tuesdays and Fridays. On Tuesdays we will be doing Dance with our EdStart coach and on Fridays we will be learning about Health Related Exercise with our class teachers- making great links to our Topic.

Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in a small drawstring bag to fit in their locker. 



We are going to be exploring the Science topic Parts of animals.  

In this unit children will learn about their senses and how they use them to describe the world. Children will identify and name the basic external parts of the human body and recognise the functions of some body parts, including the sense organs. Children will describe and compare common animals, and will recognise and name a variety of animals and their body parts. They will construct and label a map of the human body and will draw comparisons between human and animal body parts. They will consider how to treat other people and living things with care and respect. At the end of the unit, children will create a song which compares the functions of various animals’ body parts.

Home Learning Challenges

More information coming soon. 


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.
