Our first week in Ash Class - the 3 Cs!

We have had a great first week in Ash Class and the children have all been superstars!
We have focussed our learning on our 3 Cs - Caring, Curious and Courageous. These are the characteristics we want to see in all of our learners and they have been on show already!
For each C characteristic, we have chosen a character from a book that we love. In KS1, ours are:
- for CARING: Rocket from the Look Up!, Clean Up! and Speak Up! books by Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola
- for CURIOUS: the snail from The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler 
- and for COURAGEOUS: Princess Elizabeth from The Paperbag Princess by Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko.
As part of our learning about being curious, we wanted to find out more about why our KS1 garden is in shade in the morning but sunny in the afternoon. So, we set up an experiment to see how our shadows change during the day. The children were quite surprised to see the difference from morning to afternoon!
