Beech Class (Year 2)

Welcome to Beech Class
Beech Class is a Year 2 class.  Mrs Chapman is the class teacher and is supported by our teaching assistant Miss Gray. During afternoons when Mrs Chapman is out of the class, the class is taught by our  HLTA Mrs Cessford and Miss Gray. 
Welcome to Beech Class:
We are running things a little different this year to ensure all the children are kept safe during COVID. As a result we sit in forward facing rows, sitting in these same positions for our lunch in the hall and have our play time on a designated area of the yard. 
Our weekly routine only requires the children to bring their book bags in to school on a Friday, that's the day everything happens!
- Reading books are changed and reading logged for the reading ladder
- Spelling test completed and new spellings issued 
- They wear their PE kits for little movers in the afternoon 
- They bring their wellies into school for our forest school session with Miss Gray
The children have settled into the new normal of Beech brilliant and I am immensely proud of them all. Here are some of things we have been doing this term: 
Friday 25th September:
We had a great time celebrating our annual European Languages Day, this year we watched videos provided through Lingotots and learnt all about the Netherlands. During the day, the children samples a range of foods, learnt some phrases, labelled animal names and even went Dutch by doing some halving in maths. It was a great day of fun finished with making our own Amsterdam windmills. 
Thursday 8th October 
After several weeks, learning the story, creating a story map, using actions to retell the story and then innovating it to make it their own - the children are ready to retell their version of the story all next week. They have worked so hard learning 'The Teddy Robber' story.
