WELCOME TO ASH CLASS
All details concerning learning this year will appear here on this page.
Please keep looking as more information is made available particularly spelling lists and project homework that will be linked this term to our whole school theme, 'Would you live here?'
The theme this term will focus on Ghana, Africa and compare daily life to the children's routine. Reading and writing will focus on Persuasive writing and recounting events, where the children will learn about what life is like in Ghana. Spelling tests will recap on all year 1 & 2 common word lists and weekly spelling test lists will be handed out at the start of each half term.
Maths, the children will study place value, measurement, multiplication & division, addition & subtraction.
Science study will investigate Animals including humans and after half term, forces and magnets.
Art will use collages to explore the physical geography of Ghana and also making African masks
RE will explore what it is like to be a Christian and in the second half of the term the children will investigate The Big Story of Christmas.
Computing will remind children about being safe on the internet, coding and using chrome books in Google Classrooms, using passwords while keeping this information safe.
PE lessons will be team based, then after half term gymnastics .
If parents have any queries please email the office through the link or pop into Ash Class at the end of the day.
Home learning tasks - information to parents

All the above needs to be handed in on the following Monday. Please let me know how your child is progressing with their home learning.
Daily reading every night (if possible) 10-15 minutes a day. Please sign your child's reading record each day to show you have heard them read.
To develop a lifelong love of learning and valuable life skills, we aim to support every child to develop a positive learning and life approach. As part of this, you will increasingly become aware of the characteristics of PRIME.
Nelson (our school mascot) accompanies and illustrates each strand of this.
I attach a 'poster' to identify each of the characteristics of PRIME which we will be aiming to develop in every child during their time at Ruishton school. Please see below.
