Welcome to Beech Class
Hello, my name is Miss Lee and I am the class teacher within Beech Class.
We are very lucky that we also have Miss Spencer working with us.
We are all very excited to be welcoming the new children at Longshaw and have lots of exciting things planned!
This is our class page where you can find out all the information about the term and any dates you will need.
We also have class blog where there will be weekly videos, photos and activities for you and the children to enjoy.
Our exciting topic for the first 3 weeks of this term is ...
Dream Big, aim high.
We will be learning all about ourselves and the world in which we live. We will be researching different careers and the skills we will need. It is important to learn how we can build our own confidence and self-esteem to achieve our goals and adapt these to working independently within the classroom.
This year in Year One we will look to build skills linked and adapted within our local community and the wider world such as:
- critical thinking and problem solving
- building our character skills
- working in collaboration with our friends
- communicating and being a good citizen.
In Science we will be learning about our bodies and our senses. This will be linked to the season Autumn and we will be carrying out lots of investigations throughout the next few weeks.
We will also begin our ongoing project of plants and trees. Throughout the year we will be using the allotments to grow plants throughout the different seasons and hopefully be able to harvest what we grow. We will be working towards different awards of the Royal Horticultural Awards which is very exciting.
Things to consider before the start of our project...
What do I want to be when I grow up?
Who inspires me and why?
What am I good at and what do I want to achieve?
What do I do when I want to improve something?
What do I know about the seasons?
How does daylight change?
Do the flowers grow in Autumn?
How you can help at home :)
Read with your child every night, talk through and discuss the story and characters.
Counting regularly with your child, both forwards and backwards. If they read every night they will get dojos in school as a reward.
Ask your child about their day, we do lots of different activities throughout the day and they will love to share.
Ensure your child's book bag is in school everyday.
Complete the homework given out on a Friday with them, this reflects the learning throughout the week.
Please ensure your child brings in their book bag every day. Also make sure that you check these bags every night for any messages or letters that might have been given out. Please can you make sure that you label all of your child’s clothes, this includes all parts of their uniform, PE kits, coats and shoes, as this helps us to find the owner of the item much faster!! We have PE on Wednesdays, please ensure your child's PE kit is in school.
You will receive newsletters and information from school regularly, however, if you have and questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to me.
