Welcome to Beech Class
 
Beech Class is our Year 2 class and is taught by  Mrs Jones with Ms Claxton as teaching assistant.  Please click the box below to see our topic and learning this half-term. We will show you our exciting learning we have been doing in the photo gallery below!
 
Our PE day is Thursday however, we request that named PE kits are in school each day so that we can alter our provision according to the weather. We will also engage in the daily 10 minutes. 
 
As part of the school’s homework requirement, children are expected to read to an adult at home at least five times per week. This year, your child's reading journal will be checked in class every Monday, Wednesday and Friday in line with Covid guidance. These will be the designated days that your child will be able to change their books due to having to quarantine books on return. Please rest assure that reading a book more than once enriches and deepens their reading skills. Each week, on a Friday, when a child is successful in reading five times or more, they will gain a reward sticker to fill a bookmark. Thank you for your support with this. 
 
Spellings will be explored and sent home on a Friday. The children will have a week to learn them and will have a spelling quiz on the following Friday. 
 
 
It is important that children have named coats all year round. Please provide your child with sun cream and sun hats when appropriate to allow us to explore the outdoors in all weathers. Please name all your children's clothes and bags for school so that we can ensure we have the best chance to reunite any lost property with its owner.  Finally, please can all children have a named old adult t-shirt or shirt for painting, modelling, collage and anything messy. These will stay in school and only come home at the end of the each half term for washing. 
 
We are looking forward to welcoming the children into Beech Class and exploring lots of fun and exciting projects planned for the year ahead.
