Welcome to Beech Class!



Hello! My name is Miss Aspin and I am the teacher of Beech class. Mrs Oxendale and Mrs Mahoney also help us with our learning in Beech class. 
This term is set to be a very exciting term in Beech class! I am looking forward to getting to know you all and starting our Year 1 adventure together!
Our topic this term will be 'WOW Weather' The children will use different media to investigate and explore different types of weather. The children will learn about the four seasons and how the weather changes over time.

Pondering Points:

How different is the weather in a week or in 6 months?

Can you name the different seasons?

Do you know what weather is associated with each different season?

Would you wear tights in summer?

Does every country have seasons like ours?

We love learning in Beech class and are very excited for the year ahead!

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.
