'This School continues to be Good' -Ofsted November 2017


Beech Class 2023-24

Summer Term Learning



Welcome to Beech Class. My name is Mr. Hurrell, and I am your child’s teacher for this academic year.


In the morning, we will have phonics followed by English and Maths.


In the afternoon we will explore our curriculum theme for the term. Our theme for the Summer Term is ‘Love Where We Live.’



As Geographers, we will be looking at maps and thinking about how we travel to school.


As Historians we will be learning about our local area of North Walsham and how the town has changed over time. We will also explore how times have changed since our parents and grandparents were younger. 


As scientists we will be learning about different parts of plants and what they need to survive. 


As artists we will be studying the work of a famous artist - William Morris. He took inspiration from the beautiful natural world around him. We will be sketching plants and then creating repeat patterns using print techniques. 



Alongside our main learning theme, we will be continuing with our Spanish, PSHE, RSHE (learning for life) and PE lessons.

Important information:


Reading books will be changed every Monday. Please ensure reading books and reading records are in your child’s book bag every day.


The expectation for Key Stage 1 is that your child reads four times a week.


You will find homework in Home Learning books. Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child brings their home learning book to school on this day.


Every week, your child will be given a set of real words and alien words. Please support your child to practice using their phonics skills (special friends, Fred Talk, read the word) to read the words.  


Important information for P.E:


PE days in Beech Class are Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child comes into school wearing the correct uniform for PE. Hoodies are NOT allowed. As the temperature continues to slowly rise, please ensure your child has suncream applied to exposed areas - arms, legs and head. Please ensure hair is tied back and earrings are removed.
