Every day remember to bring...

Your water bottle


Swimming & PE

Pupils will begin swimming sessions on Tuesday 14th September 2021. Our swimming day is Tuesday so please remember your kit! 

Our PE day is Thursday.  Children should come to school wearing their PE kit on Thursdays.  Information about swimming  and PE kit requirements are on the main school page. 


Children in KS1 have fruit and milk or water available.  Children are encouraged to bring fresh water each day in their labelled water bottles.  These should be taken home each day to be washed and re-filled.  


Children's learning begins at 8.50 with a basic skills session.   It is important that your child does not miss this opportunity to settle, speak to their teachers and friends and have time to practice their handwriting and spelling.  



To enable a happy and easy transition into Year 1 we work as a Year 1 base in a similar way to EYFS.  This means the children in Beech and Chestnut classes will be working together sharing spaces and resources and with all of the adults.  This enables us to offer a wider variety of experiences and is familiar to the children. 

You can see our learning here and by following our class page on Twitter @BeechclassY1.
