Ash Class is our Reception class and we are following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) reforms early adopter scheme for the academic year 2020/21. Play is central to our learning. It allows us to develop new knowledge, understanding and skills, whilst providing rich opportunities to consolidate and practise what we know and can do.
Our teachers are Mrs Stuart (Mon-Thurs am) and Mrs Patterson (Thurs pm-Fri).
Another adult who works in our class is Mrs Goatley.
Now that the sunshine is out we ask that all children bring in a plain blue sun hat to stay in school for the summer term. School sun hats are available from the school office for a small fee.
We also ask that on sunny days, your child comes to school with an appropriate long lasting sun cream already applied as we are unable to store or supervise the application of sun cream in school.
The weather can be very changeable at times, even if it is sunny in the morning, so we recommend packing a light rain coat in your child's book bag. The children have the opportunity to Freeflow inside and out during the day and all children go outside at lunchtime, even if there is a light drizzle.
Reading books can be changed on a Monday.
School library books can be changed on a Tuesday.
PE lessons take place on a Monday & Wednesday.
Below are some resources that support good quality books that you may already have at home, want to borrow from the library or purchase to share with your child. The resources link to books provided to children free of charge from birth to 5 by the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The scheme is currently unavailable for our post code area but the books and resources might interest you or your children at home.
Oak National Academy and the National Literacy Trust have come together to launch a Virtual School Library to keep children reading during lockdown.
Every week, a popular children's author will become our 'Author of the Week' and provide a free book or audiobook and exclusive videos and activities aimed at primary school children, all available at library.thenational.academy.
