Welcome to Beech Class

Mr Chris Wightman is pleased to welcome you to Beech Class ! Teaching and Learning is supported by Mr Barnaby Poslett and Miss Georgie Piggott.

Learning in Beech Class

Being in Year 1 and 2 means that the children begin a new journey in their learning through primary school. So, Beech class is an important place to be! As the year progresses we will support your child’s physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development; allowing them to make sustained progress and fulfil their potential. 

We would like you to ask your child what learning they have done today, and encourage them to talk to you about their learning behaviours. 

If you would like to find out more, come in and look at our working wall and the characteristics of effective learning displays in the classroom.

Term Focus: Relationships

School Values: Courage, Justice, Self-Discipline, Gratitude

Rodrigo the Mouse has come to visit us at CH from his home in Ecuador. He has recently been visited by his uncle Wolfgang, who came with a suitcase of souvenirs, photos and letters. Unfortunately, on the way there, Uncle Wolfgang tripped and banged his head. Now he can’t remember anything! As there were some photos of Uncle Wolfgang at Clyst Heath, Rodrigo is hoping we can help him to piece together the clues! We will find clues about a relative who lived in the time of the Great Fire of London.


Reading at Home

Reading at home is known to have a positive effect on children’s reading progress. To support your child we kindly ask that you read a minimum of three times a week at home. This doesn’t need to be a long session, little and often is best. Each week your child’s reading record will be collected in and they can collect awards for reading regularly, the first is given after four weeks of ‘three reads’. These awards are supported by our ‘Captain Bookworm’ character. Ask your child or class teacher for more information
