Welcome to CPS Ash Nursery Class!
I am Miss Goodchild and I teach in Ash Class. I live in Carterton with my family and have worked at Carterton Primary School for 6 years. I think Carterton is a great place to live and I like to go swimming and to the country park.
I love teaching in Nursery and am always busy planning lots of new learning activities and experiences for you all.
Ash Class' Teaching Assistants Mrs Clarke, Mrs Dowsett and Mrs Jeffery work very hard to make sure everyone is happy and safe in nursery. Mrs Gray helps out at lunchtime. All the grown-ups love to join in with our fun activities and to teach you new things.
Please remember to keep checking back for updates to this page!
What have we been up to in Ash Class this week?
Friday 18th June 2021
In Maths. this week we have continued to learn about shapes. We noticed that some shapes can be combined to make new shapes and have made shape pictures.
We have continued to spend lots of time in the garden this week and have been practicing our throwing and catching skills.
Today we have been using words to describe the texture of different materials. We soaked some in the water tray and noticed that some materials stayed the same when wet and others were different.
We hope you like our Octopus Fathers' Day cards!
Term 6 - Under the Sea!
This term we will be learning about creatures that live under the sea. We will also be celebrating Father's Day and the Queen's birthday and making cards to send to both! Later in the term we will be holding our own Sports Day and a 'Leaver's Concert' to say goodbye to all those children moving up to reception classes. At the end of the term we will be having a special seaside day - more details to follow soon!
Term 5 - In the Garden!
This term we have been learning about what goes on in a garden. We started the term by finding out about wild animals and how to care for them. After reading the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' we planted our own beanstalks and learned how to take care of the growing plants. We also thought about different types of weather, designed our own 'secret gardens' and visited the frogs and tadpoles in our school pond!
Term 4 - Super Heroes!
This term we have been learning about super heroes. We thought about super hero powers, the way they move and what they wear. We also discovered how we can use our own 'super hero powers' to keep ourselves healthy and safe and to care for others and our environment.
Term 3 - On the Move!
This term we have been learning about different types of transport and ways of travelling. Some of us have been learning in school whilst others have been learning at home. We have made transport models, moved our bodies in different ways and created lots of transport-inspired art! We also learnt about road safety and the road signs we see around us.
Term 2 - Bears in Books!
This term we have been reading a different bear story each week and exploring lots of activities related to each book. We had great fun performing our online Christmas concert!
Term 1 - Starting with a Song!
This term we learnt a new song each week and were involved in lots of activities based on the theme of each song. Click on our newsletter link below for more information!
