Welcome to Beech Class


Beech Class (Year 2) is taught by Mrs Nicholson. Miss Nelson supports the class each day and also supervises lunches.

During the Summer Term of Year 2 pupils take part in Key Stage 1 statutory assessments (SATS) which assesses their of understanding of maths, reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling and writing. Daily reading of the book your child brings home and practice of times tables and weekly spellings is the best way you can support your child to do well - not just in their SATS - but across all subject areas. 


General Information:

Homework: Your child will have a homework task set on Sumdog each Monday. This is to be completed by the following Monday. The task follows on from what they have learned in class, and will be personalised to your child. We expect all children to read to an adult four times per week to improve their decoding, fluency and comprehension. Children who read more than this are rewarded with a prize in our Star of the Week assembly. 

Spellings: Five spellings will be given every Monday and tested on a Friday along with five other words using the same spelling pattern.

Forest School: Our Forest School session is on a Tuesday afternoon. Children need to come to school dressed in warm/waterproof clothes including hats, gloves, warm coat and wellies. Please ensure that the children have a spare pair of shoes to walk comfortably around school in.

PE: Our P.E lesson is on a Wednesday. Children need to come dressed in their PE kit comprising of white t-shirt, black shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms, trainers, Stakesby hoodie or Stakesby jumper/cardigan. Hair should be tied back and any earrings should be removed before the lesson.
