Ash Class

Welcome to Ash Class!​​

 

Our Class Teachers are ​Mrs Stradling and Mrs Carter.

Ash Class is a mixture of EYFS and Year 1 children.  We are very lucky to have the support of Mrs Turner, Miss Dare and Mrs Pugsley to help us with our learning.

During Summer 1, we will be learning all about The Queen ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.  To support our learning, we will focus on the stories like 'Paddington Visits the Palace' by Michael Bond and 'The Queen's Hat' by Steve Antony. In addition to this, we will develop our knowledge about the life of Queen Elizabeth II through our History lessons.  After half term we will be focusing on Traditional Tales to inspire our writing.  Little Red Riding Hood, along with The Magic Porridge Pot will help us to develop our story writing skills.

 

It is going to be a fun term of learning and we are really looking forward to watching you grow over the next term.

 

Best wishes,

The Ash Class Team

Useful Websites to Support Your Child's Learning at Home

Below are some of our favourite games in Ash Class.  Please visit the sites to support your child's learning at home.

Topmarks: www.topmarks.co.uk

We use this website to support our learning with maths.  It has lots of wonderful games and can direct you to lots of other websites within it as well. 

Our favourite games to play are listed below.

 

Reception Children:

Underwater Counting

Children count the number of items in the ocean and select the matching numeral.

 

Caterpillar Ordering

Children can order numbers to 10, then 20 and work up to 100, through the different levels.


Place Value Basketball

This is where the children need to think about which number is being represented e.g. how many tend and how many ones.  The children can start at the first level with numbers to 20 and then move up to numbers to 100 if they so wish.

 

Shape Pattern Train:
Children can complete repeating patterns - adding on the next shape.

 

Toy Shop Money:
Children should make amounts, counting in 1p coins.

Year 1 Children: 

Place Value Basketball 

This is where the children need to think about which number is being represented e.g. how many tens and how many ones.  The children can start at the first level working to numbers to 20 and move up to numbers to 100.

 

Caterpillar Ordering:

The children can order their numbers to 100, placing the tiles in order.  They can also sequence the numbers in 2s.

 

Shape Pattern Train:

Children should complete the repeating pattern, changing 1, 2 or 3 components at one time.

 

Toy Shop Money:

Children should make amounts using 1p coins, 2p coins, 5p coins and 10p coins.

 

Mental Maths Train:

Children can find the answer, following an addition and subtraction calculation.

 

 


Phonics Play:  www.phonicsplay.co.uk 

 

Reception Children:  In class, we have been focusing on Phase 2,3 and 4 in our phonics sessions.  We have also begun to look into split digraphs and alternative ways of writing a sound in Phase 5.  

 

Year 1 Children:  In class, we still revisit Phase 3 and 4 to help us consolidate our phonic knowledge, as well as playing the games for Phase 5 where our main learning takes place.

 

We use the free games in school and these are our favourite ones to help us develop our learning:

Buried Treasure

Picnic on Pluto

Dragon's Den

Pick a Picture

 

You will notice that some words are 'alien' (pseudo) words.  These encourage the children to practise their phonic skills and ensure they have a secure understanding of them, rather than recognising them through sight.  It is important that children are immersed with 'real' and 'pseudo' words.
