Welcome To the Asher Smith Class page.
We are a class of 32 students, 1 teacher, 1 trainee teacher and 1 part time learning support assistant. We are the Asher Smith Class. We chose her as an Olympian as she shows great determination, team work and perseverance in her pursuit of gold.

Mrs Halton is the trainee teacher. She already has her degree and Masters and is now gaining her QTS to start with her own class next year. She has worked as an HTLA and has worked in all classes from Reception to Year 6. She cannot wait to help the children be as excellent as they can be.
Mrs Conway is our assistant and she is great at being enthusiastic and caring. She is great at helping us with learning and wants all of us to do the best that we can.
Our aim this year is to be independent in our learning and to be fully organised for all of our tasks. We aim to always respect others and to always try our best.
This year we have an exciting year of learning with a different theme each half term. Our themes are Sensational Sounds; Hurricanes and Tornadoes; Vicious Vikings; Mazing Molars; Radiant Rainforests and Awesome Animals.
Our class is full of great characters. We have Jacob and Ava who are our amazing new school councillors, Alfie R and Chloe who have already improved in independence from last year, Maisie F who is aiming to be the Queen of the Dojo’s, Abigail O who loves to have original thoughts, Alfie C who is aiming to be an amazing artist, Abigail C and Eloise who are already in competition to produce best work in the class, Poppy the first star of a PE lesson, Olivia who wants to be the maths expert, Billy the expert on dragons and so the list goes on!!!!! Getting star of the week is going to be very competitive.
We hope to keep our pages updated with some of the great work that we have been producing and we are really excited by what the year will bring.

Orienteering - 26/09/2019
Asher-Smith class have been practising and developing their orienteering skills this half term. This has been good for developing our map reading skills and it has really tested our speed! Abigail O'Neill said she loved orienteering as "you get to solve puzzles which is exciting".
Harvest Festival - 04/10/2019
Asher Smith class have worked hard to help with the Harvest Festival. We performed our poem Fruit Salad where we all had parts to say and we created the front entrance display. We also helped collect food and stationary to go to CART to help others. Hugo said performing the poem was fun! "It was good, I enjoyed it and I liked helping others" said Lois.
Sound - 10/10/2019
Asher-Smith are well into their Sound topic now and part of this has been to use their science knowledge to create their own musical instrument. A whole range of instruments have been created, from the Pegophone to the Sound Buster. Astin said he loves the instruments because they are all different. Maisie F enjoyed looking at listening to Malachi's because " when he blew the instrument it was funny because it silly noise". Rebecca was really pleased that everyone had managed to make such a good one!
Pop Art - 10/10/2019
Asher Smith have been learning about pop art as an art movement. We are experimenting with this style and have created our own pop art using ICT skills. Can you recognise any of the models from this collection. Billy said " It was quite hard. But I really like the colours I used of gold and silver. I like the metallic effect". Callum said " I liked it. It was really fun. Alfie and I look like we are made of cheese!"
