Ash Croft - Busy Bees 2017 - 2018

Mrs Mehmood

My name is Mrs Mehmood. I am the current Reception teacher at AshCroft Primary. I enjoy arts and crafts and reading books in my spare time. As well as teaching, I enjoy learning for myself- I am fluent in three languages and I am currently learning a fourth.

Welcome to our class, the Busy Bees.

During the last few weeks, the children were learning the story 'The Three Billy goat Gruffs'. The children learned different actions, using 'talk-for-writing', which aided them in re-telling the story.

The children recieved special storymap books to take home and read with their parents. Please listen to them read as they were very excited about the books. They also recieved phonics homework on Friday which needs to be completed and returned by Wednesday. Please be aware that they will be receiving phonics colouring sheets every Friday, to be completed and handed in by the following Wedensday. These phonic sheets are linked to the learning that they are completing in lessons at school. Your support is very important for your child's development and is greatly appreciated by staff.

I have included links to jolly phonics, which is a resource that we use in school. Practicing at home will be very useful for your child.

Just a reminder: P.E kits have to be brought to school every Monday and Friday. They must be labelled with your child's name. Please include a labelled water bottle which will be washed and re-filled by staff. The children will be having P.E on Monday morning with YogaBugs and Friday morning with Mrs Mehmood.  

Forest school - Our forest school sesions run every Tuesday afternoon. The children enjoyed our first session and were very excided with the different activities. Please make sure your child has a coat, hat, gloves and wellington boots. Waterproof coats and trousers are provided by the school. We welcome any parent volunteers to help us with this session. If you are interested in joining us please talk to Mrs Mehmood or Mrs Mawbey.

Reading books - The children's reading books will be changed once a week. It is very important for your childs' development that you listen to them read at home. Please ensure that your child brings their reading books and diaries to school everyday.

Thank you.
