Welcome to Ash Class

We are super!

Key information


Your teacher is Mrs Holdsworth. Mrs Burke also supports in both of the Year 2 classes.


PE days are Monday and Friday Children must wear a PE kit for both lessons which consists of royal blue shorts, white t-shirt, pumps or trainers. In the better weather we will be having PE lessons outside so children also need an outdoor kit.

Homework is sent home on a Friday and needs to be returned to class the following Wednesday. Every week they will have spellings and reading to complete. They will also have maths homework that will either be learning number facts, playing maths games, practical activities or worksheets.

Spellings are glued in your child's green spelling book and are sent home on a Friday. Spelling tests are held on Fridays. These do not have to be handed in with the homework on a Wednesday.

Guided reading  will take place every Monday. Please can you make sure that they have their books and reading records in their book bags for when they read. In the new homework policy it is recommended that your child reads daily for 10 minutes. Whenever someone listens to them read can we encourage you to write a comment in their reading records at least once during the week. As your child becomes a more confident reader and can read to themselves they can also write a comment in their records. This is also a good form of communication if you need to pass any message onto us.

Library Children visit the school KS1 library on a Friday where they can enjoy choosing a library book to take home.





Class Assembly

Thank you to everyone who came to watch the Year 2 assembly. The children had a fanstastic time and did very well with their singing and explaining the 'Growth Mindset' challenge.

Superheroes of Ash class

What a fantastic day we all had dressing up as our own superheroes to finish our topic. Well done to you all for the fantastic effort  with your costumes and to your parents for their support. Throughout our topic you made and created your own logos and mask. You came up with your superhero name and powers. Here were some of the names you came up with: Weather Boy, Flower Girl, Electro Girl, Bee Man and Lightening Boy to name a few. 

Both Year 2 classes learnt a dance linked to our superhero topic. It was to  the song 'Superman' by Black Lace. See the video below.

Today we went to look at the fantastic sundial in the memorial garden that was designed and made by children in our school with a local artist.

In computers we have been using a program called 'Purple mash'. We used tally charts to collect information about our favourite fruit and superheroes. We then used the data to make a pictogram and a block graph.

In class we have been focusing on the superhero story called 'Traction Man' by Mini Grey. In small groups we have acted out scenes from the story then used photos to create our own comic strips. Today the children have worked very hard to rewrite the story in their own words. We have been working on improving our stamina in writing to try and produce more within the given time.

We have been continuing our work on place value this week. The children had to work in pairs to try and make as many numbers as they could using the same number of counters on an abacus frame.

MATHS - place value

      Partitioning numbers        

            jotting method                        using tens and ones rods              part-whole method


This week in maths we have been focusing on 'Place Value'. The children had to partition two digit numbers into tens and one. We came up with the idea to help us remember the order of the digits, that the tens are like the adults, they are older so come first and the ones  are like the children which means they come after the tens.

We have been busy preparing the class for our workshop on Tuesday 19th September. This is a bit like an assembly but more interactive, where the children will begin with a song in the main hall at 2.30 (please entry through the main reception), followed by some activities in the classroom that link to 'Growth Mindset'.

We would love it if one person could come per pupil, to join in with the activities.

Welcome back.

What a fantastic first week back. It was lovely to see all of Ash class ready to learn. 

This week in English we were learning about nouns (a naming word) and adjectives (a describing word). In maths we were focusing on match numbers in numerals and words.

Next week we are going to be introducing our 'Superhero topic.' Super powers at the ready Ash class!
