Y1/2 Ash

Welcome to Ash!

We have 30 amazing children in our class.  

Mr Dyson is our class teacher. 

Mrs Brown is our Educational Teaching Assistant. 



In English this term, a lot of our work will be linked to our topic of “Land Ahoy!” We will be reading Night Pirates which will gives us a wide range of writing opportunities as well as writing our own letters and diaries from the perspective of Christopher Columbus and his men whilst travelling across the world.    

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

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 fractions, money and measurements. 

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