Welcome to Ash Class
Welcome to the Ash Class page! I hope you have had a lovely summer and I can't wait to welcome you into Ash Class on Tuesday 1st September.
When we come back to school, we have got lots of learning opportunites and activities planned for the children to enjoy and learn new things.
There are some different and new routines in place that I am sure will soon become second nature.
The school day is a little different and drop-off and pick-up times differ slightly.
Ash Class will be dropped off at 8:40 and the school day will end at 3:15.
We are closing for a deep clean on Friday afternoons, the children will need to be collected 12:55-1:10.
Children are to be dropped off and collected from the door at the back of the Key Stage 1 building next to the Ash classroom.
Water bottles can be brought into school and taken home each day to be cleaned.
**We are asking that your child comes into school on a PE day wearing their PE kit. Ash class have PE on Thursdays**
Please always inform us if someone different than normal is collecting your child (they need to be over the age of 16)
Below you will find some information about the curriculum for the year although, if you remember from the transition meeting we are keeping the topic titles a secret for now. Hopefully, this will inspire curiosity in the children and soon they will be able to tell you all about it. Once the topic titles have been shared with the children we will share them on here.
We are always here to help so please feel free to contact us via the school email address (email@example.com) or by ringing the school office (01204 883415) and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Thank you for your support,
Miss Mulligan, Mrs Evans, Mrs Nuttall and Miss Whittle

Our first book this term is 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers. This is a book that the whole school will be using as their first book, which is a lovely way to start back at school and means that siblings will be able to talk about the book and discuss what they have been doing. The aim of the book is to create a sense of community and helps them to understand themselves in the world. We are going to be using poems, art and the children's experiences over the past few months to help us respond to and discuss the book.
At the end of the unit, we will be celebrating the work from every class.
We are going to start the term with revision of phases 3 and 4. This will help the children to recall previous learning and consolidate this knowledge.
This term we will be focussing on number bonds to 10 and addition within 10. We will be doing this by using objects to help up and investigate our learning with the resources in the classroom.
Parts of animals- In this topic we will be looking at animals and humans. By the end of the topics we will be able to identify different parts of the body and discuss the senses, being able to say which part of the body is associated with each sense. We will also be able to describe animals and their features.
As mentioned above and at the transition meeting we are not sharing the name of the topic right now. There will be clues in the classroom for the children to predict the topic and think about what they would like to know. Once we have shared the topic we will share it on here.
This half term the children will be looking at the Creation in which the children will find out about how God made our beautiful world and our responsibility to look after it. They will also look at Harvest and find out why we celebrate the harvest and how and why we should help those who do not have a good harvest.
This term P.E. will be on a Thursday with our sports coaches. Please send your child in on a Thursday wearing a PE kit that is weather appropriate.
Long hair must be tied back and earrings need to be removed/covered with tape.
Initially, we will not be sending books home and we will continue to set books on Bug Club. Once we are able to send reading books home we will advise you of the change. We will be sending out log in details soon after we start. If you have any issues logging in please let us know.
