Remote Learning 

Your packs for home learning up until the end of lockdown are now at home. A bean planting kit was dropped off for everyone who is solely working at home during lockdown; you will need this for science over the next few weeks.


We know this is a worrying time for everyone and we will be doing all we can to support and reassure the children at home. Please message us on Seesaw or via the school office any questions or concerns.


All Zoom meetings are restricted access. The class teacher monitors the participants and only admits class members.

Miss Mulligan

Welcome to Ash Class


Hello, I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and say thank you for all of the cards and gifts received at Christmas, they are really appreciated and a lovely thought!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are looking forward to a new term.

If anyone still has any issues with the online platforms we have sent passwords for please do get in touch so we can sort this out ASAP in case we should need to close our bubble at any point.


**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)



We are always here to help so please feel free to contact us 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.

Important dates:

Tuesday 5th January - School re-opens

Friday 12th February - School closes for half-term



We have enjoyed the books we have read so far this year. In the Spring term we will start by looking at a non-fiction text, Moth. It looks at how the moth has changed and evolved over time adapting to the world that we live in. Some of our writing outcomes include:

  • Captions and sentences
  • Instructions
  • Persuasive texts.

We will be using this text in out continuous provision areas too to allow us to explore the text in-depth



We are going to start the term with continuing with phase 5 part 1, including revision of some trickier graphemes from phase 3 and continually recapping the phase 5 we have already learnt.



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.



Plants- Over this topic we will be looking at plants and flowers, the features of these and we will be able to name and label a flower. We will learn about the different types of trees and how to differentiate between the two types. We will be planting a bean and watching it grow, observing the changes in the plant as it grows. We will learn about wild flowers, how and where they grow and will be able to name and identify some wild flowers.



We are continuing our topic on The Great Fire of London. We are looking at the diary of Samuel Pepys and the Plague.



This half term the children will be looking at how Jesus was Special and we will be looking at bible stories that show us how Jesus was special.



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. We will be doing gymnastics this term.

Long hair must be tied back and earrings need to be removed/covered with tape.


Home Reading

We are going to send reading books home again from Friday. We have decided that we are able to do this safely by sending one book home each week and then storing returned books for at least 72 hours before they are used again. We will not be sending a reading record home, if you have any comments you would like to make please let me know via Seesaw. 


News from Miss Bell!

Miss Bell would like to thank you for all your kind wishes and gifts after the birth of her beautiful daughter Ivy. They are all doing well and are absolutely besotted.
