Welcome to Ash!

We have 28 amazing children in our class.

 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 out topic of Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. We will be reading a range of books which link to castles, knights and dragons such as “Saint George and the Dragon”, “Dragon Post” and a range of traditional fairy tales. We will be writing our own narrative stories, character descriptions, non-chronological reports letters and much more!  


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
