Welcome to Reception Ash!
Home Learning packs will be coming home with your child tonight. Please feel free to work through these with your child supporting them as needed.
Please visit the recommended websites/links that have been suggested in the packs.
The children have been given logins for both Spelling Shed and Purple Mash and work will be set on these websites regularly.
Please also ensure you use this time to do non-academic activities and have lots of fun too! For example, you could do some baking, paint pictures, play in the garden, write a diary, exercise regularly, share stories, listen to audio books, listen to music, play board games or junk model!
We will keep in touch with you via these class pages so please check them on a regular basis for any updates.
Above all else, keep healthy and safe and we will see you soon.
Mrs Snape, Miss Cassinelli and Mrs Devy.
Parents please check your email for a link to activate your parent access to your child's Tapestry Online Learning Journal. Here you will be able to look back through previous observations of your child, like and comment on them and share photos with staff of the things you have been doing whilst at home.
We have already received some lovely photos on Tapestry and will check this regularly. Thanks.
A very warm welcome to our class page from Reception Ash.

Today, the whole school celebrated World Book Day. It was Harry Potter themed and we loved seeing the different characters and outfits. The children did lots of different activities throughout the day and really enjoyed it!
Teddy Bear's Picnic
Today the Reception children held a teddy bear's picnic! The children helped to prepare and make the food, set up the picnic and serve the food to each other. The children, the teddy bears and staff all had a wonderful time.
Here are some facts the children learnt during Eco-Day:
Annabelle- "Litter can be dangerous for animals."
Darcey- "Always put litter in the bin!"
Vinny- "Never leave the taps running when we brush our teeth and always turn the taps off to save water."
Dougie- "We need to make sure we turn lights off when we leave a room to save electricity."
Well done everyone!

Week Commencing- Monday 14th October 2019
This week the whole school celebrated Black History Week. Nursery and both Reception classes learnt all about Garrett Martin, the inventor of the Traffic Lights. We had a joint assembly with Nursery where we had lots of fun and learnt songs about traffic lights and watched videos.
In class, we used tissue paper, shiny paper and glitter to create our own traffic lights and we also made a class display all about traffic lights and linked it to our Maths learning.
We have really enjoyed celebrating Black History Week!

Today we took part in a listening walk around school with our friends in the other Reception class. We used the magical ears to help us listen to lots of sounds. We explored both loud and quiet sounds and talked about the differences and heard lots of things both inside and outside school. We had lots of fun!
Take a look at our fantastic new classroom!
What a lovely place to learn!
