Welcome to Beech Class!


Hello! My name is Miss Aspin and I am the teacher of Beech class. Mrs Murray, Mrs Ormerod and Miss Spencer also work with us in Beech class to help us with our learning. 

This term is set to be a very exciting term in Beech class! The children are starting their learning adventure in Year 1 and have settled into their new class wonderfully. 
Our topic this term is 'Wow Weather!'
We are really excited to learn about what the different types of weather. We will be observing different types of weather and working towards our final project of becoming weather reporters. We will be inviting parents in to school to watch our performances so watch this space....
Pondering Points:
Does the weather always stay the same?
How does the weather change in each season?
What is your favourite type of weather? Why?
We love learning in Beech class and are looking forward to working hard this term!

Reading Books

Please can I remind you that book bags must be in school every day and your child must read with an adult every night - remember two or three pages a night is much better than the whole book once a week. :)


Some activities you can do to support reading and understanding are...

* Act out the story

* Use expression

* Retell the story without the reading book

* Do a word hunt

* Be digraph detectives

* Ask your child to try and change the story slightly



Homework Books - Please make sure that homework books stay in your child's book bag and come to school every day. Homework will usually be given out every Friday.


I will take homework books out of your child's book bag every Thursday to look at their work and set new homework for the Friday.


If there is a problem or you have any questions about the homework then please do not hesitate to come and speak to me about it.



Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school.  It would be really useful if children left their PE kits in school during the half-term so we definitely know we have them in case our PE slot is changed.  Please make sure you name all clothing!  



PLEASE make sure that all your child's clothing is named so that if it gets lost or placed with other clothing it can be returned easily.       


Once again if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
