Beech Class Staff 
 
Beech Class work very closely with our Acorns Pre-School within our shared Early Years Classrooms, therefore, your child will work closely with all members of the Early Years team. 
 
This term our topic is titled' This is Me' and will involve us learning about our bodies, emotions and the things that make us unique. Below you will find an overview of our topic which provides further details of our planned learning. 
Each Monday we will take part in Forest School Sessions, please ensure that your child bring suitable outdoor clothing and footwear to spend an whole afternoon in our woodland area. 
 
PE will take place on a Tuesday. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school everyday. 
 
Our library sessions will be alternate Thursdays
 
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thursday 23rd September 
 
Today we took part in our first proper maths lesson. We examined the picture and noticed four candles, four cakes and a card displaying the number four. We then counted out four party hats, four cakes and four candles, before carrying out four claps, four jumps and four wiggles on the carpet. Following the input the children enjoyed hosting a 'Birthday Party' in the Home Corner and visiting the 'Toy Shop' to count out the correct amount of pennies to match the price tags.
