About Mrs Beauchamp

I am the class 2 teacher

What a great half term!

Well done year one, you have nearly completed your first half term in year one. You have all worked extremely hard and have earned some well deserved parachute time! You  have all come so far since September and every single one of you have made me very proud.

Instead of sending home your homework folders this Friday you will have some half term homework challenges:

  • How many ‘ea’ words can you find?
  • Can you practise writing your numbers up tp 20?  Can you make any number sentences with them using these symbols: + = <>?
  • Can you make a boat out of recycled materials for our travel and transport topic?

Home Learning Tasks

Here are this weeks maths tasks:

For English the children have collected leave and made hedgehog picutres. What adjectives describe the leaves? Can you write a fact file about hedgehogs? Can you write a leaf shape poem about autumn?

Busy, busy, busy…

Good morning everyone. Since last week year one have been working in their Read Write Inc groups for English and are now back into their regular routine. They have worked really hard in their whole class maths lessons and have even learnt some new symbols (< > = ) . You may want to ask them about maths crocodiles, they should hopefully be able to show you their new skills.

We have also been very busy preparing for our first ever digital harvest festival that you will be able to watch on the school website tomorrow afternoon. The iPads have also proven very popular this week and we have been using them to support them with their phonics. If you would like them to play some of the same games at home please click the following link: https://www.phonicsbloom.com/

Just a reminder that we will be changing reading books tomorrow so if your child requires a new one, please just leave a note in their reading record.

Thank you

This week…

We have been learning about our bodies and how to keep safe. We have also    found out about what we can do to look after our planet.

A couple of reminders:

-children no longer need to bring a morning snack with them as we provide one.

– homework folders need to be returned on Thursdays

– can you please check all jumpers and cardigans are named

Many thanks 🌈

What a great start!

What  a great start to this new school year, all the children have been very happy to be back with their class-mates.  We have been learning all about the world around us this week and explored what makes it so fabulous, they have even written their own version of the song “What a wonderful world”. .

Here’s a quick snap shot of what we’ve been up to…

Just to let you know, fruit for morning break will now be provided for all the class so they no longer need to bring any snacks from home. Thank you

Week 12

Week 12

Congratulations for reaching your final week of year one! A huge well done and thank you to everyone this year, you have all been amazing and I will really miss you being in my class. You have all come so far since I met you in September and achieved so much, I am SUPER proud of you!!!! It has been the most unusual year and your resilience, perseverance and determination has never ceased to astound me. I wish you all a very happy holiday and look forward to seeing you all safely return in September. For all of our home learners who would like to take their school books home, I will be putting a red box in the office this week for you to come and collect them. Your books have been put into plastic bags with your names on so feel free to pop in and take them during the week.

Here are some ideas to keep you going for your last few days of school / home learning:

For Maths this week it would be great if you could practice to tell the time, here’s a link to get you started:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znhp7yc

For English you may like to think about the memories you have made in year one. Think about all the fun things you’ve done e.g. The Christmas play, a trip to wonderland, making board games, trying Mexican food, playing with toys from the past…. Which was your favourite? What is your best memory? Have you made a new friend this year?

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-c-7342-goodbye-year-one-writing-frame

PE: As we have unfortunately had no opportunity for sports day this year, you may like to make up your own races and activities to do with your family e.g. a walking race balancing a book on your head, egg and spoon race, pillow case / sack race, target throwing… You could even make some 1st , 2nd & 3rd place badges to award the winners!

D&T: Can you plan and make a packed lunch to take to the seaside? What would be your favourite items to include? Do you have a selection of healthy food included. Don’t forget to include a drink. How will you store your food so you don’t get sand in it? Can you write a shopping list of what you need? Check the weather forecast so you can choose appropriate food (you wouldn’t want to take a flask of hot chocolate if it’s going to be hot and sunny).

Science: Faster, further, higher…Watch the videos the see if you can make your own paper plane or rocket mouse!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdpwr2p

Have fun with your final week’s activities and don’t forget to send me pictures of what you’ve been doing. The sunshine is due to be shining on us this week and fingers crossed it will continue for your summer holidays! I wish you all a very happy summer and thank you, once again for being a fabulous year one class! Have fun. Stay safe ☀️🌈❤️👍
