Welcome to Beech Class!

Beech Class is a mixed year 2 and 3 class which sees children helping each other to learn, grow and flourish as individuals. We have very high expectations in Beech Class to be the best learners we can be across the whole curriculum whether that is maths, English or a unit subject. We will use our Gem Powers to help us persevere, ask for help, bounce back from disappointment and defeat monster distractions!

 As well as doing a deep dive into unit work we will be reading key texts across the year that will influence some of our English work.

 This year (2023-2024) we will be learning more about some of the following topics:


·         Light and sound               

·         Living things and their habitats   

·         The digestive system      

·         States of matter


·         Local history                      

·         Ancient Maya civilization             

·         Tudors


·         Rivers

·         Mountains

·         Local geography and developing geographical skills

 Art and DT:

·         Food and healthy living

·         Textiles

·         Printing and painting

·         Structures

We look forward to seeing what this year has in store for us and are reading to get going with some hands on learning experiences.

Year 2/3 Class Teacher


Beech Class children are encouraged to play on Times Table Rockstars as much as possible. Every week a 'TT Rockstar' is awarded to someone who I can see has been working very hard on there! 

You can also practice number fact recall with these resources:

Hit the Button

Robot More or Less

Maths Train

If you have misplaced your login information to TTRS, please contact the school office and we will get the details to you.


Home Learning

Home learning will be sent home on a Thursday and due in on the Tuesday of the following week. As well as completing this, I encourage chidlren to read to themselves or someone at home everyday and play on TT Rockstars as much as possible. 



For children on the school reading scheme, we offer books that are decodable using their phonics learning. For free readers, there are a variety of fiction and non-fiction books available. 

Please try to listen to your child read some of their school book five times each week. If you are able, take time to discuss the text, focusing on VIPERS skills which we use in school:

  • Vocabulary - discuss meanings of unfamiliar words;
  • Inference - use clues to discuss events or characters;
  • Predict - discuss what children think might happen next;
  • Explain - discuss why has the author made certain choices;
  • Retrieve - find information directly from the text;
  • Sequence - order events from the text.



Do you have some extra time to practise spellings?
