Welcome to Ash Class


We are an Early Years class within the First Steps Pathway at Hawthorns School.  We love to learn in a semi-structured environment with a higher emphasis on learning through play and increasing social awareness and peer-to-peer interactions. The curriculum in Ash Class is guided by the EYFS Development Matters, EQUALS scheme of work: My Play and Leisure and SEE-KS (Social, Emotional, Engagement – Knowledge and Skills). Our key priorities are supporting pupils to follow rules and boundaries and successfully engage in social interactions, turn-taking and co-operative play.


The Adults in Ash Class are:

 Name  Position
 Miss L. Green  Class Teacher
 Mrs R. Scott  Teaching Assistant
 Miss J. Handley  Teaching Assistant
 Mrs P. Badrock  Teaching Assistant


As well as developing our communication and interaction skills, we also develop our early curriculum skills in line with the EYFS framework. To achieve this, we cover a wide range of exciting topics to expand our understanding of the world around us – these are often linked to children’s interests. All sessions are hands on and engaging to ensure pupils develop a love for learning.  Each session is differentiated to the individual child to ensure learning is meaning and purposeful to all.


Here are the topics will be covering this year:

Autumn Term 1 Autumn Term 2 Spring Term 1 Spring Term 2 Summer Term 1 Summer Term 2
Getting to know you
Exploring Autumn and Walking in a Winter Wonderland
