Hello and welcome to Ash class. We are a Reception class of 25 children with one class teacher and two teaching assistants.

We take our learning seriously but have a lot of fun inside and outside the classroom. Bringing the learning to life, making it real and sharing the learning with our family and friends. We never forget how blessed we are to have a great school and know how important it is to try hard and enjoy ourselves.

Some great ideas here for rain forest research

The Rainforest? By Isla (Mini ICT Project at home) AMAZING

A rainforest is a BIG jungle where there is always rain and lots of trees and animals.

You can see lots of waterfalls, trees, flowers parrots, sloths, tigers, snakes and monkeys in the rain forest.  

There is 4 layers to a rainforest:

  • Emergent – these are the tallest trees of the rainforest.
  • Canopy – is the thickest part of the rainforest. There are lots of insects and animals that live here.
  • Under Canopy – has shorter, younger trees. There are also some bushes and shrubs.
  • Shrub Layer – is home to lots of insects and larger animals. There isn’t much sun here but small plants and shrubs still grow.
