Our teacher is Mrs Campion and our teaching assistants are Mrs Zafar and Mrs Kunsir.
There are 27 children in our class – 13 girls and 14 boys.
As part of our British Values in Year 1, we will be learning about democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together. One of the ways we will be doing this is by holding class votes. Over the year so far, we have held class votes to select our School Council representatives, Sports Council representatives and Behaviour Ambassadors for each half term.
Showing mutual respect and tolerance of one another are part of the values underpinned in Year 1. We understand how important it is to respect and value the feelings and views of others and celebrate ways in which we are different and the same. Our topic 'Ourselves' will help us to learn more about this, as well as taking pride in who we are and ways in which we treat others. Children will be encouraged as part of their self confidence and self awareness to feel confident to express their needs and opinions.
In Year 1, children are taught the importance of having rules and routines in place within the school and classroom. We use our rules to help us make good choices and think about our actions, keeping our school a safe and happy place! Each week our Behaviour Ambassador will choose a child from the class to be awarded for their good behaviour!

In Class 1 Beech the children will be given weekly homework. Homework is handed out on Friday and is due in on the Tuesday. We will be talking through and explaining the homework to the children before they take it home, however if you have any questions or the children are unsure as to what they are meant to do, please feel free to speak to a staff member in Class 1 Beech either yourselves or to encourage the children to come to see us if they need help completing their work.
The children will also be taking home a reading book and a library book. Please read with your children on a daily basis at home and write a comment in their reading journals to let us know how they got on. Library books will be changed weekly, every Tuesday afternoon.
Please find Mrs Campion's timetable for Autumn below. We will be having PE on Tuesday and Wednesday. Children will need to have their full PE kits in school on both these days. Girls will need any earrings to be taken out (unless the children are able to do this themselves).

1 Beech have really enjoyed their Creative Arts and Science Week. We read the story 'The Wonder' and enjoying wondering about imaginary worlds. We had a visit from Magical Mehem and enjoyed watching some magic tricks and taking part in different activities. We have made sherbet, slime creations like the stars, had a visit to the Rainbow Room, had a visit to the Nursery Garden and used skittles in Maths to help us with our fraction work.
We are really looking forward to the parade on Friday. Here are some of our photographs so far...
Healthier and Fitter Me
Children had a great day visiting all of the classrooms and activities in school. All of the children took part in the games and the physical activities. Their favourite activity was the Archery. All children made a New Year Resolution to help them become healthier and fitter. Some of these resolutions included; trying to walk to school more, trying to eat more fruit and vegetables and trying to drink more water.
Enjoy looking at the photographs...
Christmas in Year 1
We have all been very good this year, so Santa came to visit, then we had a Christmas party.
The Sleepy Shepherd
We have been working on recognising numbers 0 to 20 and making these numbers using counters or Base Ten equipment.
In English we are reading the story 'Funny Bones'. We have enjoyed retelling and acting this story out.
