Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.

Year 6 2018

New Topic - From Bean to Bar!

Year 6 started the new topic in style last Friday with their 'Character Day'! In Literacy, the children have been reading the opening of Roald Dahl's 'Charlie & the Chocolate Factory' and were set the challenge of creating their own character - the first golden ticket winner! As shown by the photos, the children showed impressive imagination with their costumes and thoroughly enjoyed the day.


Throughout this term, the children will be immersed in the fabulous world of chocolate, including learning about the history and geography of the chocolate making process, from 'bean to bar'. They will also be taking part in the first ever Ashmead 'reading marathon', inspired by Roald Dahl! We are all very excited about what will be a busy, yet fun term ahead!

Have a look at some of the pictures from our fantastic trip to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. Both children and staff had a brilliant day and found themselves immersed in the wonder and magic that brought these wonderful books to life. Remember to have a look at your child's broomstick photo that they have brought home this week! 

Welcome to our new Year 6 classrooms!

Welcome back to our new Year 6 classrooms and our brand-new topic 'Fantastic Beasts'. The Year 6 children are well-rested after their summer break and are enjoying their new learning environments and their exciting introduction to our new topic! They have already been busy learning about the Ancient Greeks, building Parthenons, playing Quidditch and writing about mythical creatures! We are all looking forward to what will be a busy year ahead.
