Ash - Year R
Welcome to Ash Class
We are a class of reception children. Our teacher is Miss Bartholomew and we are supported by Mrs Selby, Mrs Grabham, Mrs Naish and Mrs Prouse. We work very closely with all our friends in Holly class.
We have started Gymnastics this week. In Ash class we have learnt the star, tuck, pike, straddle and straight shape. We explored these shapes, trying different ways of making them with our bodies. The children were all very creative when making the shapes. The adults were so impressed! Ask your child to show you one of the shapes
Ash and Holly have been on a super trip to Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm. We went on a coach to the farm and sang songs on the journey. When we got there we walked around the farm looking at all the different sizes and types of trees. We tried to find the shortest and tallest tree. We even got to choose a tree to take back to school with us! We picked the tree and watched it being wrapped.
We have had a very busy half term with the run up to Christmas.
We have learnt the Christmas story in our RE sessions and we then performed it as our Nativity. We all looked brilliant in our costumes and we did a fantastic performance for our families to see.
We have been very lucky as our PTFA organised a Santa's grotto for us. We saw Santa and he read us a story. We drank delicious hot chocolate and Santa gave us a present. We had a lovely morning.
We have had such a busy first half term in Ash class. We have all settled in so well and have done some super learning! We started our phonics sessions and we have have been talking home some weekly phonic sheets with things we can practise with our families.
We have been enjoying our number blocks sessions in maths. Number blocks is a television program that you can watch with your child, number blocks are great at helping us to understand number.
We have also done PE, we have been learning outside and in our hairdressers role play.
All the staff are so proud of what a fantastic half term we have all had.
