Our Learning 2020-2021

Welcome to the Beech Class


The teachers in Beech class are Mrs Green on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Townsend on a Thursday and Friday.

We are supported each day by Miss Dudley and Miss Beal



A few reminders...

  • Beech class go out for Forest Schools on a Thursday Morning and we will do PE on a Thursday afternoon.  We will be going out whatever the weather (including rain and snow) so children need to be dressed in appropriate clothing; a warm coat and accessories in cold weather and a sun hat and suncream in hot weather.   Children need to come to school wearing their PE kit with warm, waterproof coats over the top.  Please can children arrive in their trainers and bring wellies in a separate bag to change into for Forest Schools.  
  • Children need their book bags in school every day.  We read with your children throughout the week and it is very important that this is recorded in their reading diaries.  Please remember to support your child with reading their reading book at home.  We ask that children read with an adult at least 3 times per week.  Reading books are changed once a week however you can read anything additional with your child - magazines, recipes, picture books etc!
  • Please send your child with a labelled water bottle to use in class.
  • Please make sure all school uniform, pe kit, lunch box, bags, book bags and water bottles are clearly labelled with your child's name.

Welcome to our classroom

Spring term 2021


This half term we will be learning all about different fairy tales, castles , dragons and knights in our new topic called 'Once upon a time ...'. The children will learn all about castles, the royal family, seasons and carry out art work and design and technology. Please browse through our topic map to support your child at home.

We have been  learning about castles this week at school and so have the children at home. We had a go at making castles out of boxes and bricks and other loose parts. We have loved seeing the photos of the castles that the children have made at home too.  Here are some of our castles we made.

14.1.21 - A Snowy Day!

The snow has made us really excited today.  We loved going out to do our Daily Mile in the snow today and seeing how we made footprints in the snow!  It wasn't long before more snow came down and we watched how this covered over our footprints.

The children who are working at home had a great time in the snow today as well!

WC 4th January 2021


Well what a strange start to the term we've had!  Well done to all our children for coping so well with all the changes that have been happening whether it is still coming to school or working through their remote learning ay home.  If you are working from home all of your learning will be uploaded to your portfolio.


This week we have been learning about the Princess and the Frog.  We have looked at rhyming words, competed maths work around the song 5 Little Speckled Frogs, and learnt all about the lifecycle of a frog.


In class on Friday afternoon we still enjoyed 'Feel Good Friday' and it was lovely to see that the children at home joined in with this doing their favourite 'feel good' activity at home too.  Have a look at our Feel Good Friday photos below!

Wow! what a fantastic term we have had in Beech class, we have celebrated lots of different cultures, celebrations and seasons. The children have worked so hard and we are so proud of all the achievements they have made. Thank you to all our parents too who have supported us and their children amazingly at home with weekly reading, phonics and homework.
