Welcome back to a new school term!
I hope everyone had a peaceful and relaxing Easter break and that you are all ready to start a new term with lots of exciting and refreshing learning.
The Year 1 phonics screen will take place this term. As you are probably aware all children in Year 1 have to take part in this.
Please look below to learn more about the phonics screen and how you can help your child at home.

As part of our PE lessons and keeping healthy we have been learning how to bounce on a trampoline. Apart from being great fun it will also helps us to keep fit and healthy.
Upon returning to school after Easter, we were so lucky to have welcomed the eggs into our school. It has been an exciting opportunity for the children to see the chicks hatch and also amazing for them to have had this opportunity. They have been closely watching and making scientific observations on how the chicks are growing and changing...
What an exciting adventure on the Life Bus!
As part of our PSHE lessons, we had a visit from the Life Bus where Sarah, together with Harold the giraffe and his friends, taught us all about 'My Wonderful Body', being healthy and keeping fit. We also learnt that it is OK to say sorry when you and your friend have a fight.
Snow! Snow! Snow!
In English, this term we are writing our own version of Little Red Riding Hood. We have been learning to use interesting adjectives to describe the characters and setting of our own story. Once the stories are finished children will be reading them to the Nursery children.
In Maths we have been learning about Adding and Subtracting two numbers and solving simple word problems. We have, also, been learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We went on a shape hunt around our school garden and were looking at our local environment and identified some 2D and 3D shapes.
In History we have been learning about how houses have changed through time. At the end of the topic we are going to create our rooms, in the 'olden days' style, using recycled shoe boxes. Later on we are going to compare these to 'modern day' rooms.
In Science, our topic is 'Materials'. Children have been looking at different materials and how they are used to make different objects. In our Gardening lessons children have classified materials as 'natural' or 'man-made'.
The children have been working so hard in all areas and should be extremely proud. Keep up the terrific work Beech Tree class!
