Ash class is the name of the Reception Class at Wirksworth Church of England Infant School.
Mrs Emery is the class teacher and Mrs Chapman and Mrs Flitter are the Teaching Assistants in our class on different days.
We have a large, bright classroom and a door out on to our outdoor play area. We're next door to the school office, so Mrs Haynes gets lots of visitors!
We like to go on walks around Wirksworth with our friends from the WI Reception Class - finding out how the local environment changes through the seasons as well as other curriclum-based fact finding activities like finding numbers in the environment.

The tradition of making well dressings is an integral part of the Wirksworth festival. Although the festival is cancelled this year due to COVID restrictions we still enjoyed making individual well dressings and took them to St Mary's church to display.
After reading the story 'The Wind Blew'; we went outside and explored the wind with weather socks/ scarves and windmills. We had a lovely time!
