We are Team Ash!
On our first two days back we discussed what it meant to be in team Ash!
We gathered words to describe us – and wow what a list! We have these signs displayed in our classroom to remind us of how amazing, special and happy Ash class are!
We are TEAM ASH – Achievers, Supporters, Happy!
We also wanted to embed our PARTE values into our everyday life in team Ash so discussed how we can show our values through our actions and class charter. Here is what we came up with!
- Be proud of what you achieve – share and inspire
- Be the ‘pro’ – share your knowledge and support others
- Throw out the word ‘never’ – be overcomers
- Take a chance, take a challenge – reach your goals
- Think before you speak and act
- Careful, calm, caring
- Treat others as you want to be treated – no one sad
- Be inclusive – teamwork makes the dream work
- Look up, be positive and optimistic
- Smile and the world smiles with you
Keep an eye on this page for more of our amazing learning over the year!
Go team ASH!
During Science day we explored gravity, friction and air and water resistance. We explored how the shape and design of objects are effected by resistance and linked this to the efficiency of military equipment such as parachutes and submarines. We then designed and built cars using a balloon for extra momentum!
Team building and Welly Wednesday:
Since being back, we have had lots of opportunities to reconnect as Team Ash during ‘Team building Mondays’ and our super ‘Welly Wednesdays!’
We love being outside and have become the Forest School Ambassadors to help improve the forest area for all of the children at Bowsland! Watch this space for more details!
We had great fun in D.T week looking at food and finding out about the seasonality of different produce. We learnt the features of recipes and then created our own for the Team BG Cookbook. On the school team, we cooked, tasted and evaluated our own seasonal pasta recipes. We made a super cheese sauce with fried leeks to add for an extra delicious twist and a rich tomato sauce including mushroom, peppers and onions. We loved them both but found the perfect blend was a mix of all! DELICIOUS!
To celebrate the Festival of Light, we had the opportunity to work in our house teams for the day all looking at different ways to celebrate light. Some of us looked at Bonfire Night, others at Divali as well as many others. At the start and end of the day, we video-called the rest of Team Bowsland to wave at our house across the school and showcase what we got up to. Here we are having fun:
Team Ash’s awesome assembly
Back to school September 2020!
During the first two days as part of our recovery curriculum, we spent some time thinking about what makes Ash such a great place to be and you can see all the amazing words we can use to describe ourselves above. Then it was time to find out more about our class leaf – the Ash leaf.
We headed outside and managed to find two Ash trees on the school grounds. We knew it was Ash because it had compound leaves (there is always an odd amount), diamond shaped bark showing how old the tree is and bunches of seeds.
Once back in the classroom, we got creative with print and dug out the Ash leaf shape on some polystyrene sheets before printing them on paper and material. The paper ones will go on the trellises above the entrance to Upper and the material ones have been taken home by Miss Wells to sew into a banner for the classroom!
What a fantastic reminder of who we are! GO TEAM ASH!!
