Year 1 2020 - 2021

Hello and welcome to Year One. We have lots of fun and exciting activities planned for your time in Year One.  Please use the tabs at the top of our page to find our English, Maths, Science, Theme and Homework pages.

If you have any queries or concerns about your child's learning then please do not hesitate to speak to us, either before or after school.  

Maple Class

The class teacher in Maple Class is Miss Moore and she is supported by Mrs Basford.



Willow Class

The class teacher in Willow Class is Miss Banks and she is supported by Miss Jackson. Mrs Nolan will also be assisiting in Willow Class in the afternoons.



Cherry Tree

Some children will attend Cherry Tree in the mornings. Our Cherry Tree staff are Mrs Hargreaves and Mrs Nolan.



PE day is on a Monday & Friday.  Your child will need to arrive to school in their PE kit and will remain in their kit all day. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit. This includes a Beechwood PE t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms and trainers or pumps.


Starting the Day

The school day will start at 8.30am and end at 3:15 for Maple class. Willow class will start at 8:50 and end at 3:30. This is to allow for social distancing when dropping off and collecting. As a school we are aiming for 96% attendance so please ensure that you are in on time.


Snack and Lunch

The cost of snack is £2.50 per week. This needs to be paid via the school Gateway app. No cash will e accepted by staff. This is for toast and a drink or the alternative hot snack (pizza, bagel, bacon bap). If you wish your child to have a snack from home, please make sure it isn't chocolate, crisps or fizzy drinks - thank you. We do offer the children free fruit each day as well, please encourage your child to accept it.

Just a reminder, your child is also entitled to a free school dinner every day whilst in Key Stage 1. Each day they can choose from our hot dinner menu or a jacket potato.



Please label all uniform including coats, P.E. kit, shoes, hats and jumpers. It is extremely difficult to locate lost uniform if it does not have a name on it. We will be labelling these items if they are not already labelled. Jumpers will need to have the Beechwood logo.

As a school, we take safeguarding very seriously. This includes internet safety and we are very aware that many children enjoy spending time on tablets, phones and even playing with Alexa!
