Welcome to Beech and Regent Class 2020
Hello everyone starting in Beech and Regent class in September.
We're looking forward to seeing you all on Monday when you come to collect your transition bags!
As you can't come in to school to see us before starting school we thought we'd record you a little video to say hello. We hope you are as excited as we are!
We have made you all a special pack to help you to settle into school. In your pack you will find...

This story was used as the F2 book of the week recently. You can find different activities to do with your child in the document Home Learning - Week 7 ST.
We have put together some activities for children to do at home whilst they are unable to come to school. We all want our children to be happy, safe and still learning at this time. It will also help you to keep them occupied at home for an extended period of time.
This page will be updated with new work or messages every Monday.
For parents of children with SEND please see the information posted by our SENCo here.
Please keep checking and keep you and your family healthy.
If you have any questions please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you all soon!
Best wishes from the Foundation Team
F2 Home Learning - Beech and Regent Class
Monday 20th July
Wow Beech and Regent. Can you believe that it's the final week of school before the summer holidays. It's such a shame that we didn't get to spend the full year together. I just wanted to say how proud I am of each and everyone of you. You all worked so hard in school and made such fantastic progress. You have continued to make me proud with all of your home learning and have stayed resilient throughout these really tricky times. I hope you are proud of yourselves too. I also wanted to say a big thank you to all of the mummys/daddys/grandparents/carers etc for helping the children to learn at home. We know it hasn't been easy but you've done a fantastic job. You all deserve a much needed rest over the summer. Fingers crossed the sun shines and you get to enjoy it. I can't wait to see you all back in September!
Miss Palmer :)
This week's home learning can be found in the document 'F2 home learning 20.7.20' . We have another fun week ahead of us wrapping up all the things we've learnt this year, with lots of fun, practical activities.
Our phonics lessons will continue with Mr Mc. Follow the link on the planning to take you to his videos.
I hope you enjoy the home learning and don't forget to email Miss Palmer or Mrs Morris any pictures of you doing your home learning so that they can add them to your home learning journal or even onto the website for your friends to see what you have been up to:
Also make sure you head over to the Albany and Elton class pages for a special video message from your new teachers.

Welcome to Ebury,Beech and Regent Classes
We believe that every early year’s child is unique and has the right to learn through play.
We provide a rich and enabling environment, where children feel they belong, are understood, and are inspired to succeed.
We know that this requires skilful interactions by knowledgeable adults to build the foundations for life.
Welcome to the Foundation Unit
Who you will meet:
Miss Palmer - Foundation Lead
Mrs Hallam - Beech Class Teacher
Miss Efrat - Regent Class Teacher
Miss Martin - Ebury Class Teacher
Mrs Morris - Foundation Teaching Assistant
Mrs Haynes- Foundation Teaching Assistant
Mr Cheetham - Foundation Teaching Assistant
We are looking forward to another exciting term in the Foundation Unit. There are lots of exciting things happening this half term. We will start off by making pancakes, then we will be exploring Spring and will finish the term by finding out about Easter (we may even have an Easter egg hunt!).
Our first story cafe last half term was a huge success so keep your eyes peeled for information for this half terms.
We would like to welcome Miss Martin who will be the new teacher in Ebury Class. We're very happy to have her join our team.
As always we are looking forward to seeing what new learning opportunities the children discover and planning activities based on their interests. We love finding out about the children and will continue our parent meetings with a drop in for parents evening.
We will be looking forward to beginning a new year with many more exciting learning opportunities. As we did in the autumn term, we will be talking to you and your children to find out about their interests so that we can plan for these.
We will also be using changes in the season to provide new learning experiences for the children, for example we will be investigating winter.
We love to explore celebrations and will be using Chinese New Year as an opportunity to celebrate together and find out about our wider community.
One of our books of the week will be Little Red Riding Hood. It would be fantastic if you could start reading different versions of this story to your child. Why not join the local library and ask to borrow this story.
Look out for our important letter about our next curriculum choice which will take place in January. Ebury will join Little Acorns for some exciting activities and share learning and playing together. Beech and Regent will be given a selection of activities from which they will be able to choose what they would like to do.
One of the best ways you can support your child's learning is to hear them read at home. This will really help to develop their love of books and reading. Please remember that Mrs Morris and Mrs Selby will be offering a session which you are invited to attend. We will be talking to you about how you can best support your child at home with their reading. Please see the letter for more information.
FANTASTIC prizes are on offer. Every child who reads 24 times during this half term will receive one of these super prizes.
ENJOY READING WITH YOUR CHILD!
Welcome back for the second half term of the year. We are looking forward to new children joining us this half term and would like to warmly welcome them and their families.
We are very excited about the children's learning this half term. We will be continuing to follow the children's interests as we encourage and support them to play, learn and develop.
There will be lots of exciting things happening throughout the half term, including sharing in celebrations such as Diwali, Bonfire night and Christmas.
We would like to thank you for your continued support which is so valuable in helping your child to be the best they can possibly be.
Djanogly Dozen - Trip to the theatre
Beech and Regent Class had a fantastic trip to the theatre on Thursday. We got the bus in to town and went to the Theatre Royal to see the stage version of The Gruffalo. We all had a fantastic time and loved the show. The children were so well behaved. We were very proud of them and you should be too!
Welcome to a new school year. We look forward to welcoming back children who have already been with us and are excited to meet all of our new faces. This year we have 2 reception classes. Mrs Hallam will continue to be Beech Class teacher and Miss Efrat will be joining us to teach Regent Class. Miss Carter got married over the summer and is now Mrs Morris. She will be the teaching assistant for both classes. Mrs Leafe will be teaching Ebury Class with Mrs Haynes as the teaching assistant.
This term will be spent getting to know the children and their interests, so that we can plan our curriculum to suit their individual needs. We will be asking for parent support to get to know the children better.
We will be holding a welcome meeting on Tuesday 10th September from 3:00pm - 3:30pm. This will enable us to let you know the sorts of things we do in school and how you can help your child at home.
