Welcome to Beech Class



 We are a mixed year group class of Year 1 and Foundation Stage pupils.

 Our class teacher is Mrs Holmes and our Class  Teaching Assistant is Mrs Barton.







In Beech Class we aim to read daily, which may include practising high frequency words, tricky words and phonics. Year 1 children also need to regularly practise their number bonds and their 2, 5 and 10 times tables.


Additional support may be offered by your class teacher for individual pupils. Please see our separate homework document below for further suggestions for Year 1.


Homework should take approximately 20 minutes per week. Please speak to your class teacher if you have any concerns.

Today we harvested our potatoes. We have been growing them for months: chitting them, planting them watering them and checking on their progress. They tasted delicious

We had a super time exploring our local area looking for signs of spring. We found lots of flowers, buds and new leaves.

We had a Wow Starter in English on Friday, as we found out about the story 'Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain'.

The children have worked on a D and T project. In groups, they decided how to design a vehicle to carry water.

Beech Class enjoyed a thoughtful and reflective time in Church this week, sharing in an Easter Experience.

Beech Class had a super time at Axe valley Wildlife Park. We particularly enjoyed handling Alfie the Armadillo and Merry the ferret. We saw lots of amazing birds and some larger animals like zebras. We found out about their natural habitats and the foods different animals eat. We found out more about omnivores, herbivores and carnivores. We had great fun in the play area too.

We made healthy leek and potato and minestrone soup today. Which would be your favourite ?

Today we had a lovely visit from our local Museum.We have been investigating materials in Victorian toys.
