Hi Families,

Welcome to Beech class (thanks for your patience while we dealt with some technical issues on the class page).

It is so lovely to have welcomed you all back to school this Autumn term. We have already been so busy learning throughout September and getting stuck into all our lessons.

The children are particularly enjoying Science, we have started our unit on Plants early by recapping our knowledge from last year and planting some daffodil bulbs. Now it’s a waiting game to see who has green fingers in Beech (it’s certainly not Miss Mc, I’ll stay away from the bulbs!). 

In Maths we are nearing the end of our unit on Place Value, but it’s always a great idea to pop onto Mathletics a couple of times a week to keep that knowledge secure. Soon we will begin Addition and Subtraction, look out for your Maths home learning book.

In English we have been reading and writing circular stories, ask your child all about Tom and his journey along the river. We are having a huge push on levelling up our reading. We have been reading in small guided groups as well as whole class and the children are really challenging themselves. They already have their hearts set on that next benchmark level! You can support your child at home by reading every day, it only has to take ten minutes but reading every day can have such a dramatic impact! 


Please feel free to contact me, either at the door or give school a ring if you need anything, we’re all in this together!

All the best,

Miss McIntosh and Mrs Sutherland
