YR Beech

     Welcome to Beech Class!

We are one of two reception classes at St James Church School. 

Teacher: Miss Bartholomew

Teaching assistant: Miss Thorne

At St James Church School we use Class Dojo to keep all parents/carers up to date with the fun things happening in each class. Each week we will post something about our exciting week. Feel free to message us with any questions you may have about your child's learning. đź™‚




Doors open for reception at 8:40am. Pick up is at 3:05pm.



PE is on a Friday morning, please ensure the children have their PE kit in school. 

Forest School: 

Please make sure your child has their forest school kit in school at all times. This should be clothes that you do not mind getting muddy, a coat and a spare pair of shoes (preferably wellies). 



It is expected that children will read a minimum of three times per week at home using Bug Club. Bug Club is an excellent resource that has interactive questions about the book they have just read. This supports the children's comprehension skills.  New books will be added every Friday. 

Children will also have the opportunity to bring a book home from our reading area. This is an opportunity for an adult at home to read to them and discuss. These can be changed daily. 

Our Learning Expedition is Journeys The children’s first journey is their journey to starting school.
