As part of our ‘hook’ to the introduction of our story, ‘Meerkat Mail, children came into school to find a suitcase in our classroom. We found some sun-cream, sunglasses, a snake and a map! As a group we discussed the contents and whom the suitcase belonged to. We then used the map to find the owner!
Welcome to Beech Class! We have a busy but exciting term ahead. Our Topic this term is ‘My Family and other animals’. To view our curriculum over view please click here click here.
Children in Beech Class are Reception and Year 1 children. Both Year groups are experiencing important transitions in their ‘Learning Journey.’ For Reception pupils this means adapting to new routines and attending full time and for Year 1 pupil this involves the gradual transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) to the National Curriculum. Our aim for Year 1 is to seamlessly move from play-centred learning to a more formal practise by early next year.
Throughout the Autumn Term Year 1 builds upon the EYFS curriculum enabling all children to learn through play. All children have a balance of independent activities accessed throughout the continuous provision combined with adult-led focus activities.
If your child is in the Reception Year their learning is documented using Tapestry and this will be updated regularly in order for you to see what your child has been learning. Please also use this to upload your own pictures! This is a great way for us to incorporate your children’s interests in our planning.
Tapestry does not continue into Year 1. Children’s learning is now evidenced in their curriculum books which take the form of written work as well as photographic evidence to show learning through a practical and hands on approach.
