Beech Class

Miss Wilde, Mrs Cross (Mrs. C) and Mrs Cross 

welcome you to Year 1!

A brief introduction...

It's Miss Wilde's first year teaching at Stanton in Year 1. She loves to teach Writing and she is passionate about History. Mrs Cross has been with Beech class for the last two academic years so she knows them well and helps them all with development in their learning. The other Mrs Cross who we call MRS. C has been in year 1 the last two academic years so she knows the curriculum well and she is fantastic with phonics.


We have our P.E lessons timetabled for a Monday and a Wednesday, we suggest that the children bring their P.E kits into school and leave them on their pegs for the whole half term - just in case!  Please click here to be taken to our uniform check list. 


In Beech Class we visit the school library every Friday, please make sure that your child has their school library book in their book bag ready to be changed on this day if they wish to exchange it.


Beech Class Learning

In Beech Class, we love to learn and have chosen some fantastic texts and topics to explore throughout the year! We will be sending home Knowledge Organisers regularly that associate with the learning and aim to support children to prepare for our spaced retrieval quizzes.

Children learning in Beech Class

Home Learning

In year 1 the children are expected to continue their learning at home each week. This includes daily online reading and a weekly maths challenge that the children complete in their homework books. Weekly homework linking to the children's spellings will be set in the Spring term. This will help to consolidate the spelling rules and patterns learnt in school.
