Welcome to Beech Class!
Children start their special journey here at Broadhempston School in Beech class. We are a small class of just reception children and we are taught by Miss Cannon. In the afternoons we join Willow Class where Miss Cannon continues to teach us Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons and on a Wednesday afternoon, Miss Nicolson teaches us. We have support from Miss Reed in the afternoons.
We are all smarties and have made some class rules that we follow to ensure we all have the best days at school. Have a look at what we decided our golden rules will be:
Our Golden Rules!
We will try to be kind and help everyone.
We will listen carefully to each other.
We will follow instructions sensibly.
We will play nicely with each other and share.
When we are on the carpet, we will sit smartly with our legs crossed.
We will try to remember to put up our hand up.
We will try to do our best with everything.
We use kind hands. feet and words.
Literacy and Phonics
In Class 1 we follow Phonics Bugs. This gives children a fantastic start and we ensure all the children are reading appropriate books to their ability. Reading at home helps your child improve their reading and writing skills dramatically and I thank you for your support in reading with your child every day.
As well as our Phonics Bugs lesson we have daily literacy lessons. Every week we look at a new book to help hook the children to really enjoy their writing, play and build their vocabulary.
Please see this website for advice and guidance in supporting your child to read at home including how to pronounce each sound as well as segmenting and blending words: https://oak-view-academy.co.uk/parents/reading/
We use White Rose Maths to develop fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We make our maths lessons fun, engaging and practical.
Exciting things we have got up to!
