Welcome to Ash!

Welcome to Ash class.


Our theme for the term was habitats so we started the term by thinking about winter and the arctic. The children enjoyed learning about the animals that live in the arctic. Here we are creating some winter inspired works of art.

At the beginning of February we learnt all about Chinese New Year. At the end of the week we opened our own Saplings Chinese restaurant where all 60 children were seated to sample some Chinese delicacies. The children were all really brave eaters, the prawn crackers and noodles all disappeared, the stir fry vegetables weren’t as universally popular. After our sitting at the restaurant we went into the hall and the children impressed us with their dragon dances.

We hope you enjoyed our film premiere of Handa’s Surprise. We spent a couple of weeks focusing on the book of Handa’s Surprise and learning about Africa and the animals that live there. We did some role play in class in preparation for the filming and everyone had a lot of fun creating the film. We’re sure you’ll all agree that there was some wonderful acting to admire from the children.

The children have been working really hard in phonics; we have now finished learning our phase 3 sounds and the children are working to consolidate their knowledge.


Thank you for reading our page, we hope you have enjoyed finding out what your children have been up.

Throughout the year in Saplings there are occasions when we offer the children small amounts of a variety of foods to taste, to fit in with our current topic. We are aware of dietary requirements already supplied, should there be any changes, please inform the school office and we will take note of this when providing food to your child.
