Welcome to Beech class - Your child will be taught by Katrina Brown - the class teacher with the help of Mrs Terrington and Mrs Dott - the class teaching assistants.
We have Letters and Sounds everyday at 9.00. This is when we split up into our phonics groups and challenge ourselves with new words and spelling rules. After this we have either an English or maths lesson. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays we have an assembly at 10.15 where we all gather in our bubbles to share stories, sing songs and practise mindfulness. Break is staggered for Covid safety, we all hope for dry weather and a not too muddy field so that we can run free and explore the woods. At 11:45 we have a whole class guided reading lesson in which we discuss different stories in depth. We discuss what we like and dislike about a book and we may compare a story to other stories we know. Finally, we can all tidy up and get ready for when lunch begins.
In the afternoons we love to explore and participate in our own learning. This is our creative time to build, make, ask lots of questions and discover. We also like to go to the library or have a PE session in the hall. After a day full of fun and learning we are ready to collect our letters and pack up our book bags. We eventually reunite with our parents at their allotted time, unless you are at after school club. When we arrive home we mustn’t forget to read our books and complete our homework which is set on Thursdays and is due in the following Tuesday.
