Hello and welcome to Beech.

Children learn through a mixture of focused adult-led activities and child-initiated activities within our classroom learning areas.

Each area has targets for the children to work at and develop their own skills.

We hope that your child enjoys their time with us and we look forward to working alongside you as they learn and develop.  

Class News

Welcome to the final part of the summer term. We hope you and the children enjoyed the recent break. 

As always, we are available at the beginning and end of the day if you have any messages or queries. Please arrange an appointment if you wish to discuss a concern in greater detail.



Our topic this half term is called ‘Let's go on a safari !’

Please see our latest class newsletter for more information about our learning over the next few weeks.



 Home Reading

 Please aim to read with your child at least three times each week and sign his/her reading diary. Please practise blending simple words and recognising tricky words.

Encouraging your child to read the book a second time and discussing the events will consolidate his/her fluency and understanding.

We will change books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.



In our phonics sessions we practise reading both real words and pseudo words (nonsense words). Please click the links below for lists of nonsense words which use the phonic sounds we will be practising in school this year in preparation for the Year 1 Phonics Check in June.
