AUTUMN TERM 1:  What makes me special? The Principle of Diversity



We have been learning about harvesting food during autumn. Look at our carrots that show our harmony principle of diversity. They come in all shapes and sizes....just like us!






Special Boxes

The children have amazed us this week with their confidence in presenting their boxes of items that show what makes them special. Well done everyone!

Conker Rolling!

We had great fun having conker races!


We have had a great first few weeks in Reception and are really settling into the routines of the school day. We've loved going on tours around the school, getting to know all of the staff, and most importantly making new friends among the 90 of us!

Take a look at some of the things we've been up to!

We have started our Learning Enquiry for this half term and are finding out about all the things that make us special.  Have a look at our enquiry web to discover more about our learning.

Maths progressions in calculations

Welcome to Reception Meeting- Thursday 19th October 2017 

Click on the above link to see a PowerPoint for progression of maths skills at Ashley school. These will be useful so that you are able to understand the methods your child uses, which may be different to the methods you use, so that you can best support them. Please ask your child which method they use as it will differ for each child. The key is that they are comfortable and secure in the method they use.
