Welcome to Ash Class page! We have had a very busy (and gory!) start to the school year exploring our new topic 'Mum's the Word' which involves the lifestyle and beliefs of The Ancient Egyptians. The children have also been working hard on their various Ancient Egyptian themed tasks at home which is helping them to better understand our topic. We have even been able to create our own Valley of the Kings from the fantastic pyramids that have been brought in!
We began the year by mummifying tomatoes and we are looking forward to returning to school after half term to unwrap them! We will continue to do PE on Monday and Wednesday this half term so please ensure a full PE is in school at all times.
Remember: It is vital that your child keeps up to date with reading, spellings and Maths Magic tasks as this heavily contributes to their progress.
- Reading: Ongoing - reading at least 4 times a week minimum. Remember children must ask and answer questions about what they are reading.
- Spellings: New spellings given on a Tuesday and tested through a spelling dictation on Monday.
- Maths Magic: Ongoing - please help your child to recall his/her targets which are tested throughout the week.
- Topic Linked Activity: A choice of topic projects sent home at the beginning of term to be brought back whenever completed. We will be holding a gallery at the end of November.
