I am Miss Richardson and I teach Ash Class - Year 3 and Year 4 children. We are also joined in the afternoons by the Year 2 children. In the mornings we usually have English, maths and reading, along with drumming on a Monday. In the afternoons our learning includes our wider curriculum subjects like P.E , art and R.E. For more details of what we are learning and when, there is a link to our timetable below.
Our topic this term is 'From Sea to Shining Sea', with a focus on the Titanic and Robinson Crusoe. This will not only be something will we be looking at in the afternoon, but will also be used as the basis for our English work in the mornings. We are using the fantastic books 'Flotsam' by David Wiesner, and 'Kaspar Prince of Cats' by Michael Morpurgo to inspire us in our writing.
Important Information - What Ash Class Children need in school each day
It is really useful for the children if they have the right things with them on the right day, making their day run more smoothly and helping them with their learning. Spelling books and Reading Response books need to be in school each day so that they are available whenever needed. Homework books should come in on a Tuesday, and PE is on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons so PE kit should be in on these days. Forest School also takes place on a Thursday and requires a change of clothes.
Spellings and Times Tables
On a Monday morning we have spelling tests and on a Friday morning we have times tables tests. Children can prepare for these using any methods that work for them. We have sheets in the homework drawer in class that they can take home to use, or they may wish to use practical resources or games online. Please help them to record something in their homework books to show me that they have been doing some learning at home.
