Welcome to Ash Class - Reception
Mrs Patrick and Mrs Parkin are the Reception class teachers and Mrs Burbidge is the teaching assistant. We will be filling this page with exciting class news, pictures of things we've done and more.
Each day your child will require their reading bag, PE kit and water bottle in school.
Please can you make sure their name is on all PE kits and uniform as we have found some clothes which unfortunately do not have names in and no-one has claimed them.
Check out these activities if you want some more home learning activities.
We hope you enjoy looking at the different things we have done.
