Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero


Good morning Beech families,


Well done for super start to the half term. You worked so hard yesterday! We look forward to seeing you all again soon!


Today you have the following lessons/activities:

  • Name Mrs Tildsley’s creature!
  • Speed Sounds
  • Reading
  • Handwriting
  • Maths
  • PSHE
  • Music



Look what Mrs Tildsley found yesterday! Do you know what it is?

Speed Sounds

Your Set 2 sound today is 'ar' and the Set 3 sound is 'ew'. You may know these sounds now, but it's good to keep practising them so we get super speedy at reading the words and you also become a super speller!

Please watch and join in with the following videos:

  • Speed Sounds
  • Spellings
  • Reading Longer Words (Children learning Set 3 sounds only)
  • Hold a Sentence

Remember the priority is Speed Sounds and Spellings.


It is your second read of your book today. Year 1 children are reading 'A House Fit for a Mouse' and Year 2 are reading 'Tricking a Dragon'. Yesterday you may have sounded out lots of the words to read them, today your challenge is to read with more fluency. You may like to get a grown up to read the book to you before you read it again so you know how the reading should sound. Practise the Speed Sounds, Green words and Red words before reading the story a second time. 


Before half term we were practising the handwriting families. We have completed all four sets now! Today I would like you to choose 5 letters that you find tricky to form and practise those. You can use the sheets from the handwriting booklet or lined paper, whichever you prefer. 


Year 1

Before the half term, you were ordering numbers to 30, today it gets a bit more challenging, as you will be ordering numbers to 50! Join in with the video and then complete the worksheets.

Year 2 

Yesterday you had a fun lesson drawing pictograms. Today you are going to learn how to interpret pictograms. This means you will understand and be able to explain them. Join in with the video and then complete the worksheets.

We are thinking about the word 'resilience' today. We have a wonderful assembly from Sarah to watch first. Sarah shares a story called 'After the Fall'. Watch and listen to this story carefully, as our activity is all about this fantastic story. 

KS1 Resilience

This assembly explores what resilience is, encourages students to think about how they have already shown resilience and continue to do so, and the story 'Af...

The story 'After the Fall' teaches us all about resilience. Today I would like you to create a comic strip for the story. Using the worksheet provided draw 8 pictures in order they come in the story. Draw thought bubbles (thought bubbles are bubbles which are pictures and show what the character is thinking) and write speech bubbles (speech bubbles are bubbles which have words which share what the character is saying). This will really get you to think about Humpty Dumpty's feelings and how he was very resilient! You may notice his feelings change over time!

Today we are on lesson 4 of our unit of work called Zootime! Hope you have lots of fun singing the very catchy song!
