Welcome to Beech Class – the Reception class at Crowmoor Primary School.

If you have any non-urgent queries about our class, please contact Miss Jones on the class email address beech@crowmoorschool.co.uk

Children should have their book bags in school every day with their reading books and records, sound cards and number cards.

PE is on FRIDAYS only.

On PE days the children should come to school wearing their kits. This should be a plain white t-shirt, black or navy blue jogging bottoms and suitable pumps for indoor or outdoor PE sessions. Children should also wear their school jumper/cardigan or a plain black/navy blue hooded top.

Any earrings should be removed on PE days as per school policy.
