Welcome to Ash!

This term our topic has been ‘Transport’ and we have been using the book Mr. Gumpy’s Outing by John Burningham as the focus for our literacy work.
We started off our topic with an exciting ‘boat trip’ where all of the Saplings were invited aboard!
The children made their own tickets and had their passports checked, before donning life vests and setting sail. We continued the topic by looking at all sorts of transport such as trains, planes, buses and cars and finished off with a week all about space, which was inspired by the book ‘Whatever Next’ by Jill Murphy.
To finish off this half term we are immersing ourselves in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. There has been so much going on in class. We have been making golden carriages, painting the Queen, writing about what we would do if we were King or Queen for a day and much, much more. No photos on here because we don’t want any spoilers ahead of our ‘Celebration of Work’ on Friday.
Next term we will be reading Jack and the Beanstalk and looking at growth and planting, so there is lots to look forward to.
