A warm welcome to Beech Class!
Mrs Edwards is our Class Teacher and we share our wonderful Learning Support assistants Mrs Skyrme-Davies and Mrs Page with Chestnut Class.
We are an enthusiastic and hard working class who enjoy learning and having fun together! We would like to tell you about some of the things we do in Year 2.
Every day starts with handwriting practice. We join our handwriting and make sure each letter is carefully led in from the line. After that we have our daily phonics lesson where we play fun games to help us learn to read and spell. English is next during which we enjoy reading stories, poems and non-fiction texts. We share our thoughts and write our own interesting ideas. After break time we have our Maths lesson followed by a well-earned lunch break.
In the afternoons we learn different subjects like Science, French, Computing, Music, History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology, R.E and P.E. We are such a busy class!
A Typical Day in Year 2

10.45-11am: Break Time

Our P.E lessons are on Wednesdays (Swimming) and Tuesdays (Games or Dance). Please make sure all P.E kit and school uniform is named as it makes it easier to match up to its owner if lost!
We have Homework every week; this will usually be English or Maths, relating to work we have been learning that week. Homework will be sent home on a Thursday to be returned the following Monday. Every Friday we take home spellings to learn ready for our weekly test the following Friday. We also love to bring home our reading books to share with you every day.
We hope you come back to this page soon to find out about our achievements, view photos and discover the exciting things we have been learning along the way!
Mrs Edwards, Mrs Skyrme-Davies, Mrs Page and all the children in Beech Class
