Mrs Bonnelykke, Mrs Matthams and Mrs Bovingdon welcome you to the Ash Class webpage.

Ash Class have been doing some wonderful learning this term. Come and take a look...

In Ash class, our Power of Reading Topic is The Journey and thinking about refugees.

As part of our space topic last half term, we enjoyed reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce. We wrote some exciting newspaper reports, emails and poems. We also designed our own 'Draxphone' from the book amongst many other fantastic opportunities to be creative in our learning around the Power of Reading text.


We were invited to take part in a very exciting robot competition based at BT Adastral Park. Fantastically, we returned victorious with both First and Second Place! Gooooooo Stanton!!

Next time you're in class, come and have a read of your child's poem and artwork, which has been inspired by the book.
