Beech Class

 

A Very Warm Welcome to Beech Class

 

Class Teacher - Mrs Hughes

Teaching Assistants - Mrs Moosa & Mrs Dadabhai

 

 

Home reading books

 

Home reading books now reflect where your child is within phonics. The books they take home can be used to help them find their sounds as well as use their phonics to help them read unfamiliar words. Please do encourage your child to use their phonetic skills whilst reading.

As always in Beech Class we know that reading will help us to develop our writing, understanding, spelling and phonics.

 Children need to bring in their home reading books and reading logs every day as we will be selecting children to read outside their reading day. 

Please do continue to encourage and support your child to read 3-4 pages each and every night, as this will help them develop their understanding of maths reasoning, grow their vocabulary and help them to develop their communication skills too!.

Along with reading it is also important that you ask your child open ended questions about the story such as who is the main character, what happened  next, where did it happen?

Make it fun by acting out the story, draw a picture or even make a model.

Mathematics

 

In maths we will continue to focus on our numbers up to 100. Please do practice at counting and writing these at home. We will continue to use our addition and subtraction skills as well as look at word problems.

This term we are continuing to extend our number knowledge and all children will be working towards being able to count on forwards or count backwards from a given number. Our counting in 2's, 5's and 10's will also continue alongside we will develop our skills of number place value. We have regular quizzes and team competitions on our numbers so please do continue to support your child at home - its amazing how much they can remember in such a short space of time!

In addition we will be looking at shapes, fractions, positional language and capacity.

 Purple mash has some great games to help learning with number bonds and shapes. I have suggested a couple for each child in the homework file.

English 

 

This term we have a great deal to cover. Our topic this Summer term is How Does Your Garden Grow, which enables us to look at information or factual text about plants and their life cycles .  Our focus for the first few weeks will enable us to name some common flowers and trees, as well as understand what they need to grow.

In addition, we will also be continuing our poetry theme. The theme will be to look at poems using our senses. We will be learning how to identify, describe and write simple sentences about our senses, alongside this we will even write a class poem using rhyme. I will be looking forward to their performances.

The term will continue to focus on the children's skills of sequencing, letter formation and good sentence writing.

 There will be fun activities to enable the children to practice writing simple sentences, labeling, instructions and story writing. We will continue to focus on how we write a sentence and start to include adjectives and conjunctions such as 'but/so/and/because' in our sentences.

Topic

 

This term our topic is all about plants, what they need, how they grow, and what they are called, which links nicely with last terms topic about where food comes from. It is centered around developing skills in science. As always our topics enable us to be very imaginative in class and Beech Class will enjoy looking at different styles of drawing, drama, dancing and role play.

In PE we will continue to develop our skills of balance through gymnastics, and music will be lots of fun as we will be looking at music genres that have a floral and growth theme.

A few reminders for this half term

 

PE for this term (Febraury - March) has changed and will be held on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Please can you ensure that your child's PE kit is clearly labelled and left in school over the half term.

 

In Beech Class we will be providing a variety of creative homework opportunities for you to enjoy with your child. In addition, I will continue to provide a piece of either English or Maths homework each Friday to support your child's learning for that week. Any homework should be returned to school by the following Wednesday.

Please can you remind your child that they must complete their own homework as I often link this to activities the following week.

 

All children now have a 'Purplemash' login. This can be found in the inside front cover of their homework books.  I have started to suggested games and activities within the homework area for the children to try - if they fancy an additional challenge!

Also, don't forget there is a great 'kids zone'on the school website. It has great games and suggested websites to help with maths and English.

Additionally, to help your child with phonics parents and children can access some of the phonics games free via 'phonics play'. This will help develop your child's reading and also give them additional confidence in class.

 

Finally, please could I ask that you provide a named water bottle for your child. It is important that they stay hydrated throughout the day as it will help them concentrate and stay focused. This will remain in school throughout the week.

 

If you have any questions please do let me know at either the end or the start of the day.

 

Keep a look out for our class newsletter and pictures.
