‘Working together to be the best that we can be’

Ash - Mrs Patrick & Mrs Parkin

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.

Contact the teacher

Have a go at some of these home learning activities. 
Week beginning 6.7.20
We are looking forward to having a few more of you join our bubble this week. In our phonics lessons we are beginning Phase 4 so you will see some longer words using the sounds we already know in the work that follows. In maths we are thinking about sharing groups of objects equally and we are continuing our work around Jack and the beanstalk. Could you make a moving picture where Jack can climb the beanstalk, like we have in class?
