End of Year One objectives

These are the objectives that most children will achieve by the end of year one. This is for your information only. We will be continuing to set appropriate tasks after the Easter break.

Some Easter holiday fun for you...

Home Learning during school closures

Hi Beech Class,

It now officially the Easter Holidays! Use the time to chill out, have fun with your families, do some craft, play some games and eat some chocolate.

Remember to stay at home, even if the weather is nice. We know it is tempting to go out to the park but we all need to keep safe and stay in our own houses and gardens.

Check back with our class page as we will be adding some more exciting activities to keep you busy in a couple of weeks.

Don't forget to keep reading.

Keep safe,
Mrs Heath and Mrs Jefferson

The following documents show which phonemes children need to know to complete the Year One Phonics Screen. Children will be expected to use these sounds in order to decode and read real and nonsense words.

Here is a list of examples words that are similar to those the children will read in the Year One Phonics Screen.

The Coppice Farm Bus has arrived! We have been to explore the bus and we are looking forward to it being turned into a fun learning environment for our school.

On Thursday 6th February we had a visit from Arnold Fire Station. They taught us about what it was like to be a Firefighter (or Watchman as they were known) in the time of the Great Fire of London and what it is like now. We even got to sit in the fire engine and have a go at holding the hose.

What a super Christmas party we've all had. Thanks to all the parents and carers who sent food for us to share. Merry Christmas to you all.

Christmas Crafts in Beech Class - December 2019

Thank you to all parents that came to help, the children loved it.

Today Beech Class made Christingles and learnt the meaning of the

different parts.

We had so much fun in Forest School today (9.10.19)! We found lots of signs of Autumn, we climbed trees, splashed in puddles and Mrs Heath chased us all!

We had lots of fun building our Funny Bones skeletons. The children were good at thinking about which bones they needed to include.

Beech Class really enjoyed their afternoon with the animals from White Post Farm. We learnt lots of new things for our topic on animals.
