Welcome to Ash Class!
Welcome back to the new school year- we are all very excited about being in school! Your teachers this year are Mrs Turner, and our teaching assistants are Ms Buckland, (Full time) Mrs Gosney (2.5 days) and Mrs Wootton (3 mornings)
This will be a busy term as we adjust to life in school again, and spend time building on our friendships, and growing in confidence in our new class. Our whole school topic is 'How It Works'

Before the school shut on Thursday and Friday, we were talking about how nice it would be if you guys recommended books to your friends and left the books on each others doorsteps with notes to each other. It is thought by some, that the Covid 19 virus could be passed on to materials such as cardboard and plastic, so always speak to the adults in your home before opening any parcels and sharing books from other families. as well as rememering to wash your hands!
In line with government guide lines, we have put together a selection of activities to provide a balance of learning during this period of closure. Please complete as much as possible and bring the outcomes into school when we re-open. If you are able to print out some of the sheets to work on then that would be great, otherwise, do what you can on paper/exercise books given out on Thursday 18th. We realise that these are unusual circumstances and parents have to balance this with child-care, home learning and this may have time pressures on the time avalilabe to support your child with this and would ask that you do what is manageable.
To support you during this period, Twinkl is offering every teacher in England access to all Twinkl resources with a One Month Ultimate Membership, totally free of charge. We’re also extending this to every parent and carer in your school so your pupils can still have access to high-quality learning during any periods of disruption.
Setting this up is really easy to do - go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS
As you know we use the Accelerated Reader scheme on the Renaissance Place website to encourage and monitor reading. Children take a quiz to test their understanding of the book once they have finished it, this usually has to be done at school.
Renaissance Place have announced they will be making this facility available from home whilst schools are closed.
The children can find out which of their home books will be part of the scheme (and there are a great many) by going to www.arbookfind.co.uk, some classes have been shown this.
To take a quiz go to :https://ukhosted15.renlearn.co.uk/2011257/
Continue using your pupil log in details (which can be found in the front of planners).
We advise students complete quizzes unaided. If parents/carers wish to support their child, you can do so in the following ways:
Discuss the book with your child as the book is being read
Ask your child to read the question aloud
Ask your child which answers are not correct
Find the page/chapter to which the question refers
Welcome to Ash Class
Here are some fun maths activities to practice skills from this week. You do not need to bring them back to school!
We started the new school year with a whole school trip to "We the Curious" the science museum in Bristol - there was so much to see all the children said they would like to be taken back again. This photos shows our hands- on electricity workshop.
We have been learning some fab maths games to practice our times table facts, it would be great is you could play at home, all you need is:
We have been learning about equivalent fractions in maths. There are many websites we can use to consolidate our understanding.

What a busy half term!
Take a look at our Vikings display! We have created 'Rune name plates', warning posters, job adverts, information posters about Viking long boats. Well done to all our children who have done some superb home learning, from tremendous top trumps, to fantastic family trees, from superb shields and swords to cool coins, fact files and everything else.
We are enjoying our How to train your dragon literacy topic and have been working hard on our addition and subtraction strategies.
As well as all the addition and subtraction strategies that the children have been working on, some of them have had fun trying the 'Decatree' challenge, particular well done to Martha for explaining her learning to her competitive class mates!!
Click on this link to see what this was all about!!
Ask your child about '90 ten' as a strategy to help with their number bonds to 100.
We have really got to grips with addition and subtraction this week in maths and the children have been working very hard on some Roald Dahl problem solving. In Literacy we have been practicing our spelling and editing skills. We have been producing some warning posters about Viking raids!
Have a look at our word clouds that we produced in ICT when you drop in on open class Thursday!
