Upcoming Diary Dates

Monday 24th Jan - Eisteddfod Class Round

Friday 11th Feb - Eisteddfod Semi-finals

Friday 18th Feb - Last day of term


Week commencing 17th January



The children will be beginning to learn the set two sounds this week, groups 1 and 2 will be learning 'ay' and 'ee' and group 3 will be revisiting 'ay' and 'ee' to consolidate learning, focussing on identifying sounds with those words and then writing them.



The children will be continuing their new topic "Come Fly with Me - Asia" by learning more about China. They'll be using the Chinese dragons they made last week to create a dance to traditional Chinese music, and investigating photos of objects and deciding whether they are linked to china or not.



This week the children will be continuing using the key text "Juniper Jupiter" as the basis of their literacy work. They'll be talking more about super heroes and their super powers, and writing short sentences to express their ideas.



This week the children will be learning about the composition of 4 and 5. We'll be reading "The Ugly Five" by Julia Donaldson and looking carefully at the different ways we can make the numbers 4 and 5. 


Eisteddfod 2022

Each year the Ashley Hill Multi Academy Trust holds a poetry competition. Each child will perform a poem with actions to their class and those selected will go through to the semi-finals where they perform in front of their key stage. The children who are selected to go through to the final will perform their poem in front of all the finalists from across the trust. Below is a collection of poems for inspiration, or your child may like to add actions to their favourite nursery rhyme.
