Our Learning

In Amazing Ash, we aim to create experiences which are exciting, and capture the interests of our children. Our topics can be either chosen by the teachers eg. The Great Fire of London, Growing and The Seaside, or chosen by the children eg. Magic, Dinosaurs, Kings and Queens and Chocolate.

We always begin each new topic with a ‘WOW’ starter or experience.

Our Timetable

Every day we come in and have a morning activity. This is an activity linked to something that we are learning about:

  • 9am: We have Phonics.
  • 9.30am: We have English.
  • 10.30am: Play time.
  • 10.45am: We come in for a drink and healthy snack.
  • 10.50am: We start Maths.
  • 12pm: Dinner time and individual reading with an adult.
  • 1.10pm: Registration.

In the afternoon we either have Science or Topic lessons (Geography, History, Computing, Design and Technology, music).

             

 We aim to read individually at least twice a week with each child. Every Friday each child will take part in a guided reading session.

 

 RE is taught through assemblies and as a class session on a Tuesday

 

Throughout the week R Time sessions help the children learn to respect and work together.

 

PE sessions take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday

 

Throughout the year, our year 2 children will spend six consecutive Thursday afternoons doing Forest Schools

Behaviour and Rewards

We follow the whole school behaviour system. As a class we made our own rules and made a promise to follow these.

              

 
Golden Time

Golden Time is on a Friday afternoon and is a reward for our good behaviour. This is where we choose a treat such as choosing, parachute, extra play time, cinema and popcorn etc.

Star of the Week

Each week a child is picked to be Star of the Week.
