Welcome to Ash!
Ash Class is taught by Mrs Maxwell (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Wiedman (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)
Spring Term 2020
Acorn and Ash Classes (N-Year 2) had a super day out visiting Wigton Fire Station. They learned about the role of firefighters and the equipment they use, as well as learning more about fire prevention and safety. They have been learning about the events surrounding the Great Fire of London and how these were recorded in Samuel Pepys’ diary. This has included ordering the events in chronological order, comparing and contrasting firefighters now and in the past plus writing in first person as Samuel Pepys. In art, they designed their own Tudor/ Stuart houses and looked at the structure and lines of the old houses. Then in DT they made ther own 'Great Fire of London' 3D scene by using boxes and paper. They have read books of Julia Donaldson, with ‘Superworm’ being a firm favourite. They created their own job for Superworm.
In RE they have been thinking about 'Special Places,' they visited St Bride's Church in the village to learn about the history of the Church and to think about why it is a very special place in Kirkbride.
They have been working hard on their singing skills with Mrs Wiedman and are preparing their performance of action songs and rhymes to take part in Carlisle Music Festival on Tuesday 10th March 2020
Autumn Term 2019
Ash Class (Year 1 and 2) have embraced the time of year by writing Autumn poems and learning Bonfire Night songs. They have been thinking forward to the spring and helped to plant spring bulbs in the community garden with some of the older children in school. They are enjoying their new class book ‘Traction Man’ by Mini Grey and their topic of ‘Toys and Games’. The children brought in their own dolls and action figures from home and wrote character descriptions of them and drew their own pictures. They thoroughly enjoyed a visit to Carlisle United to learn all about Teamwork and to take part in a special PE lesson in the Neil Sports Centre. They also had a short tour of the ground and even sat in the Directors’ Box!
