Welcome to Ash Class

Welcome to Ash Class
Where Year 1 and Year 2 work and learn together! Mrs Kate Graham and Mrs Kate White are pleased to welcome you to Ash Class. Teaching and learning is supported by Mrs Mel Herron. We are a mixed Year 1 and 2 class with a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment enabling children to continue their learning journey through the Foundation Stage and into Key Stage 1. Our learning takes place through practical, fun activities and experiences. Ask us about our weekly challenges and choices.

   

Learning in Ash Class

We strive to foster a love of learning, a strong sense of curiosity and the determination and resilience to persevere and succeed. We want our children to be ‘Ready, Willing and Able', in themselves, in their school and in their world. To help achieve this we have a team of highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants who are passionate about early education and share the belief that our young leaners need to access their learning in an age appropriate way. Our  three classes have characters to help our children talk about their learning. They are: Paddington ‘the explorer’.  Kipper, who keeps trying and Percy ‘the problem solver’. See if you can catch your children being a Paddington, Kipper or Percy learner at home!

Rodrigo the Mouse has come to visit us at Clyst Heath from his home in Ecuador. He has recently been visited by his uncle Wolfgang, who came with a suitcase of souvenirs, photos and letters. Unfortunately, on the way there, Uncle Wolfgang tripped and banged his head. Now he can’t remember anything! As there were some photos of Uncle Wolfgang at Clyst Heath, Rodrigo is hoping we can help him to piece together the clues! We will find clues about a relative who lived in the time of the Great Fire of London.

 

Reading at Home

Reading at home is known to have a positive effect on children’s reading progress. To support your child we kindly ask that you read a minimum of three times a week at home. This doesn’t need to be a long session, little and often is best. Each week your child’s reading record will be collected in and they can collect awards for reading regularly, the first is given after four weeks of ‘three reads’. These awards are supported by our ‘Captain Bookworm’ character. Ask your child or class teacher for more information.
