Welcome to Ash Class
Ash Class Autumn Term 2020
Ash Class Week of the 28th September
Another busy week. Your children are really settled now and are getting better and better at following new routines. We are especially pleased with how they settle in the morning when they come in. Thank you for starting their day off so well.
Here is some of our learning for this week;
Still within the number and place value unit we will be working on comparing numbers (greater than > and less than <), ordering numbers and counting in 25s and 50s and then beginning Roman numerals.
If you see any Roman numerals whilst out and about please can you point them out – they aren’t expected to know them already but it would be very helpful if they can see that they are still used today.
Having spent last week learning about what makes a great diary entry , this week they will be writing and editing their own entries using Stepping Stones – A refugee’s journey as our key text.
We will be linking this with our Art and Geography and MFL.
We will be learning about how muscles work together in pairs to make our bodies move.
Please read daily. We already have a few children who are keen to try new authors or new styles of books so thank you for support.
Please practise Times Tables – try https://www.timestables.co.uk . I am hoping to have a times table link on google classroom, once I have finished finding my way around it.
Over 2/3 of the class handed in their spelling sheets this week which is remarkable after only 3 weeks at school. Thank you. Children are recording their results in a graph and we have challenged them all to watch their graph improving over the next few weeks…
Looking forward to another super week.

Our science topic got off to have a great start as Ash class made their own skeletons. We measured our main bones and then cut strips of paper to the correct length. Using Bony Tony ( our school skeleton) we worked out which bones went where. We now have some extra 'bodies' in the class.We also learned:
"There are a lot more bones in your feet than you think" (Issey)
" Your middle doesn't have any bones in it" (Ted)
" Babies have more bones than grown-ups" ( Clara)
