Welcome to Beech Class

 

Welcome!

Welcome to Beech's class page. It is nice to be back and into the swing of things in the run up to Christmas!

I am very excited about the year ahead and hope that the information below is useful for parents/carers to refer to, outlining key information for our class. 

In Class

Please arrive to school on time each morning by 8.50 and ready to learn. Remember your reading books and diary and a named water bottle each day. If you need to quiz on your reading book, please place your book in the correct pile when you arrive in the mornings and tick your name off the sheet.

PE Days

Beech class have PE sessions twice per week.
Wednesday (usually with Mrs Kind) – Indoors –  red shorts, white t-shirt and trainers.
Thursdays- Outdoors - please ensure children have a tracksuit as the weather is turning cold.

If girls wear tights to school, they should have a pair of socks to wear with trainers. No jewellery. Long hair needs to tied back.

Homework

Homework will be set every Friday. This should be handed in on the following Thursday.

Alongside daily reading, homework will include spellings, timetables and an English or maths activity.

All children in Beech have Sumdog and times tables rock star log ins. This can be accessed at home and are a fun learning aid for children learning multiplication.

If you have any questions about homework, please feel free to ask.

Rewards

The children, as a class, will work towards filling the class CARE chart. CARE stars can be given to the children for many reasons and by any member of staff in school.

This term the children are working towards an afternoon dodgeball.

Dojos

 

Dojos are given out in Beech class as a reward. Children can receive a dojo for many reasons. Some of the reasons include: Respectful learning, listening to others, and staying focused.

We are working hard in Beech to get as many dojos as we can by following the school and class rules.

 

Independence

As some of the children have come up from KS1 into KS2 we are encouraging more independence. The children are responsible for bringing in their reading book and record (tick sheet provided), drink bottle and homework. They are also responsible for reading at home and reminding adults to sign their reading books!

The children have ‘jobs’ in class. This gives them the responsibility and ownership of their learning space. Jobs include: pencil pot monitors, chair monitors and book monitors.

In school the children are responsible for looking after their own belongings, tidying up etc.

We encourage children to pick up things like pencils and rulers from the floor even if they did not put it there as we promote a team attitude.

 

We are all looking forward to working with your children this year!
