Beech Newsletter 17-11-23

Another lovely week in Beech class. We can’t believe how fast the year is going. We have been working super hard practising the Christmas play. So proud of the children – they are really trying and the singing has been fabulous!

In Maths, we have been looking at recognising 4 and 5. We have been looking at how to make 4 and 5, how to subitise 4 and 5 and how to form the number 4 and 5. A lot of the children have also started to notice that 2+2 = 4 and 2+3=5. We have looked at the idea of number sentences.

Our book this week has been “Room on the Broom”. We have been busy drawing the witch, the animals and designing a super snazzy broom to get around! They have all drawn a fabulous dragon as well this week. The children have started to write CVC words independently like cat, dog, big and hat. Next week we are looking at the book “Stickman” – if possible can the children all bring in a stick on Monday/Tuesday so we can make our own Stickman family – thank you!!

Guided reading has been going really well this week. Can I please ask you to keep reading with the children at home. They need to read the book 3x a week in order for us to change it and have it noted in the yellow reading record. Next week some of the children will be bringing home a set of blending words and a list of CVC words to help them with their blending. Please encourage and support your children with this. Reading opens the door to the world 🌎.


We have had great fun looking at winter this week. It’s been lovely to hear all the things the children love about winter and the weather changing. We had a go at making snowflakes using PVA and glitter.

Was lovely to see them all dressed up in spots for Children in Need. Thank you for the support.

Congratulations to Nyah, who is the golden certificate winner! Nyah has been trying so hard with her blending and independent writing. She’s always been reading lots at home! Keep up the good work! Well done!

Have a lovely weekend!
Miss Shadbolt, Mrs Kenny and Mrs Millichamp.
