Autumn Term in Ash Class
We hope you have all had a lovely summer and are ready for a new term here with us in Ash Class! This term we are finding out all about the Ancient Egyptians. We will be getting started on our new topic with an archaeological dig in class and will be exploring what daily life was like, focusing on areas such as religious beliefs and thoughts about the afterlife. Our books that we will be basing our learning on this term include the beautiful information book 'Egyptology' and the exciting fiction book 'Poppy Pym and the Pharaoh's Curse'. We will be looking at forces and magnets in science and starting our maths this year with place value.
If you have any queries, please catch one of us at the end of the day for a chat. We look forward to the year ahead with you all,
Mrs Jessopp, Mrs Fuller, Mrs Petros and Mrs Gorton
Children should have wellies and coats in school every day. Even when we do not have PE or Forest School we will be outside for the daily mile, break and lunchtimes on a daily basis as much as possible.
PE - Will be on Wednesdays (outdoors) and Fridays (indoors). Please ensure children have the correct PE kit.
FOREST SCHOOL - Will be on Mondays with Mrs Gorton and Mrs Petros. Please can children have correct forest school kit in school.
READING- Please read with your child as often as you can at home and record this in their reading diaries. Reads will be counted on a Thursday.
SPELLINGS- Will be set and tested on a Monday. Please support your child with learning their spellings at home and do check if you are unsure which spellings your child is learning.
TIMES TABLES- Will be tested on a Friday. We expect the children to recall their tables quickly so please can you support your child at home with practising these. The children are all at different stages but they should know which times table they are on.
Times Tables Rockstars is a really fun way to practise times tables, click on the link to take you to the website and contact one of us if your child does not know their login.
