Welcome to Beech Class!


We are a fantastic class family of two adults and 29 wonderful pupils who love learning and having fun along the way!

Year 1 is an exciting year during which the children build upon the foundations of their learning from the EYFS and grow in confidence and ability. It is a fabulous year to see children progress and the pupils' books are a testament to this! 

Our themes this year have been:

Getting to know you.

Remember, remember.

Blue planet.

Once upon a time.

The great outdoors and finally 

Beside the seaside.

Within these themes, we weave learning that is history, geography, science, art, design and technology based. We take our learning outside the classroom as much as possible and create opportunities for children’s learning to be enhanced through trips out and visitors into school. This year we have used our local area well and visited Haworth Art Gallery, the memorial and Oak Hill park and the local library. We have completed seasonal strolls observing the changing weather and helped our community by holding a ‘big clean up’ around our school and local streets. 

At Christmas time, we enjoyed participating in the Nativity performance and also singing in the Christmas concert. We have orally rehearsed poems and stories and have become confident in performing them not only in class but to our friends around school too! Most recently we enjoyed designing and making our own fruit kebabs, moving cars and minibeast houses!

Mrs Chadwick is always sad to see a class move onto the next year group but every year, Beech class are ready! We hope you enjoy looking at our photos, which I am sure you will agree, show lots of fun and happiness being had in our amazing class!
