Welcome to Ash Class

Here is Ash Class in front of their fantastic school.

Hello and welcome to Ash class. We are a Reception class of 23 children with one class teacher and one teaching assistant.

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.

Who’s who?

Mr William Pearse– Class Teacher and Senior Lead


Mrs Leigh Chick– Higher Level Teaching Assistant

What are we getting up to?

Summer Term

This term we are learning all about going on a Safari. Where you can go, things you might see and hear, people you would meet, foods you would taste and problems that might happen.
We have also had talk time thinking about the future of animals, landscapes and pollution.
We are really enjoying the ‘oi’ story books written by Kes Gray and Jim Field. Using these books has strengthened our rhyme and sentence writing, we have produced some great work which we are very proud of.
Following this work will be a topic on poems, leading into competitions,
speaking in front of large groups and a chance to develop our phonics even further.
Maths has lead us into money; adding amounts, giving change, saving money at home, visiting shops, using numbers above ten and twenty.
We have spent a lot of time making maths real and putting it into context which we feel is very important.
