Ash Class (Reception)

Under the ash tree

Hello, a big welcome to Ash class 2019-20.

We are a class of 25 reception children, our teacher is Mrs Long and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Bath.

The children have had a fantastic first half term and we cant wait to get stuck into the festive season. If anyone would like to come in and read with the children we would really appreciate it, just come and let one of us know and we will arrange a day. 

This year the children will need their P.E. kits on a Tuesday. We have forest school on Wednesday mornings and are looking forward to running the length of a marathon together as the term progresses. 

This half term our topic is ‘light and dark’, we will be thinking about colour and reading lots of exciting stories including ‘The Owl Babies, Brown Bear and the Rainbow Fish’. Later on in the half term we will be undertaking lots of exciting Christmas related activities! We are starting to write simple words/ sentences and learning to form letters correctly. We will continue learning new phonic sounds every week. Click on the link below to listen to our Jolly Phonics song and learn the actions.
