Welcome to Beavers
We are taught by Miss Twells. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Foster and Mrs Gaunt. Mrs Foster will teach Beavers on a Friday afternoon, whilst Miss Twells has release time. Every 3rd Friday Miss Twells will have a morning as release time in which Mrs Gaunt and Mrs Foster will cover the class, following plans from Miss Twells.
If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the class email address, which will be replied to as soon as it can be.

We have Stedy for P.E. on a Wednesday afternoon, teaching us basketball for 1 hour and Miss Twells teaching P.E. on a Thursday afternoon for 1 hour. Beavers need to come in their PE kit to school both days and be wearing either black or white trainers or pumps. Please make sure to take earrings out or cover over them before they come to school.
Year 1 and 2 will get one piece of homework a week, alternating between Maths and English. Homework is handed out on a Friday and is due back in on a Wednesday. Reception will eventually have phonic sound cards and their reading books to be engaging with.
Reading at home
Reading books are changed on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Children get 2 books. 1 book is to help build their phonics knowledge and support what we are learning in class. We follow the ‘All Aboard’,DfE Validated Phonics programme. The other book is to help with reading fluency and expose children to lots of stories to help foster the love for reading, but also to help build-up their confidence with all the different sounds they have learnt so far. Children are more than welcome to take books home from our library to fulfill their passion for reading.
Year 1 and 2- Spelling lists for each week are in their homework folders and available on the website under the heading spellings. Spelling tests are on a Friday morning.
Reception- Will have key rings with the sounds we have learnt so far, but no spelling test. Key rings wont be sent home until we have learnt a few sounds.
