Welcome to Beech Class

 Welcome to the Autumn Term Beech Class! I am your new class teacher Miss Dexter :)


All the boys and girls in Beech class have already settled in nicely and are happily getting on with their learning in Year 1! I am looking forward to producing beautiful work with you all. 


As we settle back into school we will be reading 'The Colour Monster' which is all about a little monster who will help us to learn and understand  our different feelings and emotions. He will help us to reflect on how we coped with our big emotions over the holidays and how we can begin to feel calm and happy back at school.


We will also be learning about our senses to then use our senses to describe  the weather and the seasons by going on walks around the school grounds to observe and record our findings.


This term we will be also be revisiting some of our core learning from Reception and I have included a list of websites that you may find helpful below.

Reading Books


In Autumn Term children will have regular Guided Reading and Individual Reading sessions in class.


Reading books will go home on Monday. The children will keep the book until Thursday when they will hand it back in. A new book will then go home every Monday.
So there will be 1 reading book a week and the children will need to have 3 good reads. Please sign the reading record each time your child reads and any comments you would like to add.
However children will still have access to various reading books available online via the Oxford Owl website below.




Homework will go out on a Friday and uploaded to Seesaw. Children will be given a password to access the homework online and will have lots of practice accessing their learning in class.




PE lessons will be on Monday and Tuesday afternoons
