About Us


Welcome to Ash Class.

Our class teacher is Mr Senft, supported by Miss Jafrato, Miss Ditch, Mrs Vora and Mr Ereira  

Main Topics and Trips for 2023/2024

This year, Ash Class will learn about Ourselves, Celebrations & Festivals, Transport, Traditional Tales, Growing & Habitats. You will find more information about how each topic is covered in our curriculum maps, which are at the bottom of this page. 

Our trips and visits for the year will be: Puss in Boots (cinema), Bronze Age (virtual workshop), Science Museum, Cinderella (panto), Freshwater Theatre Company, a local visit for Geography and The Tate Modern. Perform's Drama4All is on offer twice a year, kicking off with Journey Around the World with Phileas Fogg. 

Our life skills programme consists of some kind of cooking, an active activity such as yoga and something arty, all part of the ever popular Mash Friday. The children regularly head across the Green to the local corner shop to buy some of the products for this. Sensory circuits, sensory and attention activities, Lego Therapy and social interaction are all a daily part of learning. 

Physical Education (PE)

Our PE day for the Provision is Thursday. Some children will also be joining their mainstream classes for PE. Again, this is on an individualised basis. 

Your child needs to come into school wearing their PE kit, which consists of a plain t-shirt, plain joggers/shorts and a plain jumper. Trainers are also allowed. Your child will stay in their PE kit for the whole day.  


Homework will be set every Monday, and will consist of a set of spellings on Spelling Shed. There is no pressure  to complete this homework at home though.

Reading and Reading Records

We expect your child to read every day. Your child's reading record must be brought in on Monday's and Friday's to be checked and signed. Reading is such an important part of your child's development, so please prioritise this task. 

Our Class Rewards

We have many rewards in Ash Class, which consist of:

Class dojo points, certificates every Friday and stickers.
