Welcome to Ash Class
Ash Class Autumn Term 2020
Ash Class Week of the 30th November
Lots of learning and fun again this week.
Our leaflets are written in draft form and children have worked very hard on including facts from their research and putting them into paragraphs. Maths is still multiplying and dividing. Apologies for any confusion, but it became clear that we needed to revisit 2,5 & 10 times tables so changed our teaching accordingly. This worked really well and most children are now much more confident with these tables.
In Dance we continued with our Celts v Romans ‘battle’. This has been great fun and children have enjoyed seeing how hard marching in unison is and how the Celts were very brave but couldn’t hope to beat a well-organised army like the Romans.
As part of our focus on Kindness we have been learning the parable of the Good Samaritan and thinking about how we are all ‘neighbours’ when it comes to being kind to each other.
Here is some of our learning for next week;
This week we will editing our draft leaflets – looking at punctuation, connectives, spellings and using interesting words to excite and inform the reader.
Continuing multiplication and division. We will be looking at all the different ways we can record division – focussing on dividing by 10 - and how word problems give clues to help us decide if they are a multiplication or a divide question.
Times Tables – one more week of 2,5 & 10
We have moved onto nutrition and will be looking at why and how we can choose healthy options when we eat.
• We will be hearing all children read independently, as part of ongoing assessment, over the next 2 weeks so please ensure they have their current home reader and their reading diary in school each day.
• Revision of 2,5 & 10 times tables. See google classroom.
• Spellings – see google classroom.
We are still enjoying the outside as much as possible, managing to walk our ‘muddy’ mile every day last week! Please remind your children to bring wellies and coats every day.
We really appreciate the support you are continuing to give from home – EVERY child in Ash class has now received a reading certificate. Thank you.
Mrs Jessop, Mrs Davies and Mrs Bell
Here is a Harvest song from Ash. As we couldn't sing we decided to learn a signing song instead. Thank you to
Al Start for putting her video online for us to use. We have practiced hard and hope you enjoy it. We really liked the idea of Harvest being a time for 'sharing things around'.
Have a lovely half term.
