Y1/2 Ash

Welcome to Ash!

We have 28 amazing children in our class.  

Mr Dyson is our class teacher. 

Mrs Brown is our Educational Teaching Assistant. 

 

English:

 For our English, we always try and link our work closely to our topic. 

In English this term, a lot of our work will be linked to fairy tales. We will be reading a range of books such as Jack and the Beanstalk and the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf. We will be writing our own narrative stories, character descriptions, letters and our own alternative versions of a fairy tale.   

 

Spellings are practised in class every week and are made up of 10 words which follow a spelling pattern. We use spelling shed so children can access their spellings online and practise: https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb/index.html

Maths:

In Maths we follow the White Rose Hub Maths scheme in order to help children to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. This half term we will have a particular focus on multiplication and division as well as measurements and 2D and 3D shapes.   

Each week we have a times table test and an arithmetic test.
