A very warm welcome to the Beech Class page!
Beech class is taught by Miss Drew with Mrs Lee stepping in on a Thursday. Our fantastic teaching assistant is Mrs Cappellina.
PE will be on a Monday afternoon and the children are expected to have their PE kits in school. We will also be going swimming every Wednesday morning and the children will need to bring a swimming kit and girls must wear a swimming hat.
The children will be set learning logs every two weeks, this a chance for children to explore their creativity and further their learning at home. We also encourage the children to read, practise times tables and make use of purple mash to help with their learning. We have introduced a Pokémon reading challenge this year to encourage the children to maximise their reading at home. Will they become a reading master this year?
Our team are always here if you have any questions about anything Beech!
