This week in Ashdown class


Week commencing 15th April: 


Welcome back!   


It was wonderful to have the children back after the Easter break for the Summer term, despite the hail stones on Monday morning! 


This term, our topic is the Big Wide World, and this week we have looked at landmarks from around the world, such as the Sydney Opera House, Victoria Falls and the Eiffel Tower and discussed what it would be like to be there.  The children have also investigated globes and maps and started to create their own maps. 


In maths we have started looking at numbers beyond 10, and the children have started to spot that these numbers are made of a combination of tens and ones.  It has also been brilliant to see the children applying their learning from last term and discuss whether these numbers are odd or even. 


We read “Rosie Revere, Engineer” by Andrea Beaty, as part of our Circle Time lesson to help us learn about resilience and how to ‘bounce back’ when things go wrong. 


Thank you for logging reading on Boom Reader, it is helpful to see how the children are progressing with reading at home, as well as in the classroom.   


Well done to everyone using Numbots at home as well, it is an excellent way to support essential maths skills, such as subitising. Please log your child’s reading once a week on Boom Reader and continue to use Numbots. If you have any problems logging on to either, please speak to your class teacher. 





To use Numbots, for games to support number knowledge, confidence and fluency go to  If you need your child's log-in please ask your class teacher.
